Whale watching tours from Baja vacation rental

The winter season is not only the ideal time for those from the north to warm their chilled bones in the Mexican sun, but it is also the time for the Arctic gray whales to warm their chilled bones in the warm Mexican waters. This makes it a good time to experience go whale watching on a Baja vacation rental holiday. The Gray Whale sightseeing tours in Baja are a great experience.

Gray whales come by the thousands to the warm themselves and spend the winter in the bays off the western shores of Baja California. This part of the Pacific Ocean is an ideal place for whale watching as these Arctic whales migrate here in the winter and a great place for travellers seeking sun to migrate to a Baja vacation rental.

Once in Baja California the best areas for gray whale sightseeing include San Ignacio Bay, Ojo de Liebre Lagoon, Laguna Manuela and Laguna Guerrero.

The whale’s journey begins over 10,000km away in the icy waters of the Bering Straight. The whales eat enormous amounts of food during the summer and autumn to sustain them as they travel south to Mexico’s Baja California.

Gray whale sightseeing

Gray whale sightseeing is one of Mexico’s best eco-tours available. The whales are normally found a mere 5km off the shoreline. The creatures are graceful and magnificent. Surely witnessing a mother Pacific gray whale guiding her young is a moment forever etched in memory.

There are even instances when you can touch one of the mighty whales, although some whale experts frown upon this.

Whale watching tours cater to many individual tastes. There are tours that include a snorkeling trip, dinner cruises near the whales, child-geared trips and sunset romantic cruises. Not only can you arrange whale watching tours when on your Baja vacation rental holiday, but in Baja you can also see the massive whale shark, blue whales, dolphins, sea elephants and much more.
