Mexico’s Baja Peninsula

Voyage with WWF through Mexico's Gulf of California, a WWF priority place for protection.

  • The Pacific gray whale migration from Alaska’s Bering Sea to the warm waters of Baja’s lagoons is the longest mammal migration on earth.

  • Our skiff drivers are experts at positioning the boats to maximize our encounters with the whales without disturbing them.

  • Besides whale watching, activities include bird watching and hikes led by naturalists, where you may find fossils, bones and shells.

The Pacific gray whale migration from Alaska’s Bering Sea to the warm waters of Baja’s lagoons is the longest mammal migration on Earth. Nearly hunted to extinction in the past, these gentle leviathans have made a dramatic comeback and today show little fear of humans. Every winter, hundreds of them return to traditional birthing and breeding grounds at sheltered San Ignacio Lagoon on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, an area WWF considers a priority place for protection.
