Whale Watching & Research Tour

HomeTours

View Gray Whales and participate in our photo-identification research project in Almejas Bay.

Bahia Almejas is the southernmost bay of Baja California Sur Gray Whale Lagoon System, used by the Gray whales on their southward winter migration. Here, they use the warm shallow waters to mate and calve. From mid January to mid March, we are pleased to invite you to Bahia Almejas, where we spend the day watching these beautiful animals and running our photoidentification research project as they congregate and interact in the bay.

Starting early in the morning in La Paz, we will drive 3 hours to Puerto Chale, stopping along the way for a hearty local breakfast. At Puerto Chale, we meet our captain and skiff, and head out to search for whales.

During 3-4 hours we will traverse the remote and stunning bay in search of mothers with calves, mating groups and friendly individuals. Surrounding the bay are spectacular views of the mountainous Margarita Island, the mangroves of Puerto Chale and the dunes of the Baja peninsula. Along the way keep an eye out to see some bird life and dolphins, too!

The tour begins at 6am and returns to La Paz at approximately 4-5 in the afternoon. You will be provided with the return transport to Puerto Chale, your guide, breakfast, lunch and snacks/refreshments.
