2017 was a FANTASTIC Whale Season!!!
Although total numbers were down from other seasons, this is cyclical and we still had more than enough whales to watch and nearly every trip of mine encountered friendly whales.
Our new trips with La-Mar Tours out at the mouth were a huge success with the lobster and fish lunches at the beach a real hit! It worked out great to do a day trip there and a half day at the Ejido inner lagoon the next day.
Here is the link on Vimeo to the Album of videos I have made of our 2017 whale watch adventures….feel free to share on public media….enjoy!
Here is a link to my favorite day on the lagoon this season from Feb.27th!!!! This whale opened it’s mouth to get his baleen rubbed!!!
And here are the YouTube links that are quicker to load for sharing.
We had another great year with over 2,100 whales at the peak in mid February. Here are the videos from some of our adventures! I posted the YouTube links as they are easier to share on public media but if you want to see a video in a bigger format for big screens, please watch them on Vimeo…here is the link to the 2016 Whale Magic Album in high definition.
Here are my whale videos from the 2015 season….enjoy! the videos are high definition so take a bit of time to load so be patient! Please feel free to share them on public media like Facebook!
will be posting more as I get them done so stay tuned to this page!
This was the first year I used a GoPro camera and I am very excited about the footage I managed to get after I figured out how to use it. With the wide angle prospective, one can see much more than from just sitting in the panga. We can see how the mother nudges her calf up to the panga and how they twirl and dance! For the first time, we can see what the whales are doing under the water as they rub off their barnacles and push the pangas.
I have put together some short videos of some of our trips this year for our groups. I am also working on an educational Gray Whale video showing their behaviors and how they interact with people.
Here are some of the YouTube links to the videos….MORE TO COME! feel free to share them!
