Why visit Mexico in March? 

Well we are specifically talking about the east coast of Mexico, that too the Baja California region of the peninsula. The weather is perfect, the sea is calm and the whales are calving i.e. giving birth and seen swimming with their calves. 

The whales migrate down from Alaska and Canada during winters making December to Mid-April a good time to Whales around Baja California, especially around the Sea of Cortez, and Magdalena Bay.  You can see California Gray Whales, blue whales, fin whales, Bryde’s whales, minke whales, sperm whales and humpback whales. 

Its best to pick an experienced guide like the ones we work with who knows how to gently get your boat close to the whales without spooking them. To increase your chances of seeing these majestic creatures book atleast three tours at different times of the day. 

In interest of these animals and the environment it is important to book tours with responsible outfits who follow guidelines and respect these mammals.
