Choose from a variety of package options with hotel accommodations or stay at our remote Whale Camp. You can drive yourself, fly-in, or arrange van transport to Guerrero Negro. Everything is arranged for you so you can relax and enjoy a magnificent whale adventure.
Our tours operate out of 2 different areas of the lagoon which allows us the flexibility to choose the location that will provide the best possible whale encounters each day based on weather and whale activity so prices may vary a bit depending on length of trip and food services.
The full day trip to watch whales at the mouth of the lagoon… includes a visit and lunch at the new Whale Camp. We dine on fresh seafood, walk the beach, relax and talk whales.In case of rough weather we will go to the more protected Pta. Mariscal in the middle lagoon where it is calmer.
For the half day trips we have a whale talk at breakfast in the morning and a van takes us out to the middle lagoon where there is a large concentration of whales. We stay out for an extended whale watch for maximum viewing.
You can decide whether you want to go out again in the afternoon or do another activity like tour the salt works, visit the pronghorn antelope reserve or birdwatch at the estuary.

Boat (Panga) info – The boats we will be whale watching from are open pangas of different lenghts depending on group size. If the weather is rough or the whales are frisky, you may get some spray or splashed. Please bring/wear a waterproof or water repellent windbreaker or jacket.
You can bring a small cooler with beverages and snacks. Don’t forget your camera, spare batteries, data card and sunscreen.
***Bring some small bills along to tip your boat driver
Clothing – It’s winter so it can get cold but it is usually temperate and often warm like summer. You may want to bring jackets and wet gear for when you get sprayed by a whale or if it is windy! Best to dress in layers.
Travel/Immigration Documents – Ensure you and those in your vehicle have your travel documents current and in order. These documents include your Passport & FMM’s (Tourist Visa )you get at the border. If you do not have proper documents you may be fined or sent back north to the border to obtain them…..also, your Mexican liability auto insurance may not be valid.
Money – Although most businesses take American dollars, you have the advantage if you use Pesos. Pesos are easily obtained from ATM’s along the way (Ensenada, San Quintin and Guerrero Negro). When using an ATM you get the current daily exchange rate. If you use American dollars smaller bills are easier to handle. Businesses in Baja/Mexico do not accept travelers checks.
***Most businesses south of Ensenada DO NOT take credit cards!!
Before you enter Baja, call your VISA card and ATM card banks and inform them you will be on vacation and using your cards…..if you do not, they may “lock-up” your card!
**We require a $100 deposit to confirm your reservation non- refundable after November. The best way to send it is using “TransferWise” that has no fees and a great exchange rate better than the banks. I will send you my bank info at the time of booking. Here is the link.
