Baja Whale watching at San Ignacio Lagoon
Baja Ecotours invites you join us at our remote eco-solar lodge at San Ignacio lagoon where man and leviathan have formed a unique and peaceful relationship. Dubbed as "friendlies" by the locals because of their curious and gentle nature, they often approach our skiffs to interact with us. These friendly Gray Whales actually seek out human interaction. Often, mothers with calves will approach our skiffs to present their calves to us, encouraging us to scratch their backs and baleen as they lounge around our skiffs. Over the years, this extraordinary behavior has become a regular occurrence only at San Ignacio Lagoon. It is this trusting gesture of friendship that makes a visit to San Ignacio Lagoon a once in a lifetime and unforgettable experience.

About our whale watching base camp at Laguna San Ignacio
Situated at the heart of the Vizcaino Biosphere, our solar and wind powered eco-lodge lies on the shores of San Ignacio lagoon at the mouth of an estuary offering spectacular opportunities to view breeding and birthing Gray Whales throughout the day. A variety of species of migrating birds take refuge in the mangroves, which provides excellent bird watching. The local shoreline here is covered with millions of years of ancient whale fossils, bones, and shells. This region of the Baja Peninsula is truly a piece of paradise that has been left untouched throughout thousands of generations and offers visitors a look at how the peninsula once was before mans arrival. The camp offers fourteen solar powered cabins with there own electric source, two single beds (no cots) all within a cozy base camp style setting offering privacy and safe haven from the harsh elements of the lagoon.
