Blue whale watching

Feb 5- March 15

 

When you spot blue whales in Loreto Baja Mexico, you’ll be looking at the biggest animal on the planet. The landscape is stunningly beautiful, it is little wonder that many species of great whales make this special bit of paradise a destination to give birth and nurse their calves in these warm and safe waters. During February and March each year blue whales visit the seas around the islands of Loreto to calve, mate and feed on the krill that blooms.

Enjoy this world-class excursion and experience calm seas filled with the sound of these giants breathing. On these trips, we also see Fin Whales, Humpbacks, dolphins, and mantas.
