Naturalist guides Shari & Sirena Bondy and their crew invite you to experience the magic with them in the gray whale calving lagoon Ojo de Liebre(Scamond Lagoon)near Guerrero Negro, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
The magic begins when an intimate group of whale watchers set out to make friends with the gentle giants & their babies. You will not only see great numbers of gray whales up close and personal, but also learn their story… what they are doing as well as the history & ecology of the world’s largest calving lagoon. Every trip is different depending on the time of year, weather and mood of the whales. Tours run from Jan15-March 31.
There can be up to 2,000 mothers and babies in the lagoon at the peak of the season after mid February. The gray whales are birthing & mating in January. They nurse and teach their calves skills to prepare them for the long migration north.
It is fascinating to respectfully observe whales in their natural habitat. The mothers bring the calves to the boats & interact with us. We name and recognize many whales from years past by taking identification photographs & recording data to share with researchers.
After 25 years of guiding & studying whales in both British Columbia, Canada & Baja California Sur, Mexico, my daughter Sirena & I have seen and experienced things most people only dream about. Over the years and thousands of hours on the water among the whales, we have learned first hand about their life. We have witnessed countless extraordinary encounters between humans & whales. It is with great pleasure we share these tales and whale knowledge with our guests on our personally guided trips.
Lagoon magic is very real to me. My daughter Sirena, (which means mermaid in Spanish), was conceived & raised in the company of whales and has become a magnificent guide in her own right!.
So if you wish have an educational,intimate whale experience, contact us for available dates & let us share the Whale Magic with you!
