You’ll experience California Gray whales as they move along their annual migration route, first with a local guide by boat, and then by air. The combination of air and sea viewing is something NO other whale watching operator in Baja is able to offer. In fact, the opportunity to view these creatures with a birds eye view is a rarity in itself. See aerials of whales here.

You will revel in up-close encounters with inquisitive young calves and mischievous, yet mindful adult whales. A short, scenic flight will then carry you over the peninsula to the Las Animas Wilderness Ecolodge, found on the Sea of Cortez. The remainder of the trip to Las Animas is by boat. There you’ll enjoy four more days of fun, exploration, and relaxation. Fantastic food, superior accommodations, attentive staff, endless natural wonders and certain relaxation will all meet you there. Call now to reserve your place on this truly unique soft adventure vacation. See you in Baja!

John Steinbeck’s “Galapagos of Mexico” – Sea of Cortez

There really is no question as to why John Steinbeck coined this area of Mexico as the countries Galapagos! The Sonoran desert and the crystal blue waters surrounding Las Animas near the Bay of the Angels are home to an impressive variety of abundant food supply and diverse habitats. You’ll experience perhaps the most spectacular collection of marine plants, birds and mammals found anywhere in the world. 23 species of dolphins and whales, including the largest whales in the world, the Fin and Blue whales, have been sighted in Canal de Los Ballenas (just whale canal), east of Las Animas. 800 fish species, 120 species of cactus, and the largest concentration of seabirds found anywhere in the Sea of Cortez are all here to discover.

This was a great trip! I highly recommend it!

We were a little apprehensive booking a trip coming all the way from Ireland, but once we met up with Baja Airventures in San Diego and then went on to see the Grey Whales in Baja, this turned out to be the best trip we’ve ever taken, and that’s saying a lot! Sara Templeton
