We went to whale camp and had profound and thrilling experiences interacting with the mother grey whales and their babies in San Ignacio Lagoon. It is incredible to have an up-close and personal interaction with a 40 ton sentient being. We traveled with the Oceanic Society, so did not fly in from San Diego, but traveled overland from San Ignacio... More

Seeing the mother and baby grey whales in the San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja, CA is the BEST location and the camp site location for Baja Expeditions is excellent. You could not ask for any better experience, both from the whales and the Baja Expedition staff. This was my fifth time to travel to Baja to see the whales and... More

Kudos to Baja Expeditions! I just came back from a 4 day/4 night camping trip in the San Ignacio Lagoon. What an unforgettable experience! To my surprise the camp was better than expected. Taking into consideration that you are in the middle of the dessert hundreds of miles away from civilization it was rather comfortable. The tents were big and... More

The wife and I spent three days on Baja's whale watching skiffs and had the experience of our life. The boat captains and naturalists taught us about the gray whale behavior as well as the history of San Ignacio lagoon. We were, at times, surrounded by 5 to 8 whales, watching them breathe or otherwise splash around. The whale calves... More

We had a two day trip as a part of a wildlife watching tour which included an overnight stay on Espiritu Santo Island. The journey out was interesting but not for the fainthearted - it is about 40km and takes around two hours in an open boat over the bay in mildly choppy water. You will get wet - there... More

Just returned from a 5 day trip at their camp in the San Ignacio Lagoon. The camp was comfortable with amazing views from our tents of Whale after Whale just yards offshore. The food was great and our tent camp staff was very attentive. Our Guides were amazing. To call this Whale viewing would be a huge disservice. This was... More

A fantastic course in grey whales. Knowing nothing about whales I found these three days in the lagoon magical. A staff of great knowledge and experience guided us into a world I did not know. Jose is a maestro of the grey and through trips onto the lagoon and books I got my course. The wow factor is extreme. I... More
