An experience of a lifetime! We camped 3 days/2 nights on Espiritu Santo Island and spent our days snorkeling with whale sharks, playing with sea lions, and kayaking into small coves. The days were full of surprises and the crew were willing to take advantage of special opportunities like visiting a huge pod of dolphins. The staff were capable, professional,... More

Imagine sitting in a 23' fishing boat and having a 30+ ton whale glide up to you and stick its head out of the water for the express purpose of being petted! Or, having a young calf do the same thing! You don't have to imagine it, you can experience it thru Baja Expeditions whale watch trip to San Ignacio.... More

We went on the whale shark and sea lion snorkeling combination tour. What a thrill! The boat ride to the sea lion colony was beautiful - wind in our hair, sailing through the water, sunshine, and manta rays jumping on the way. When we got there, our guide explained in great detail and very clearly what to do. We donned... More

Baja Expeditions was first class all the way on this three hour excursion to swim with Whale Sharks. Our family of four had the boat to ourselves, which we found makes a big difference when you are only competing with three others to get a close up view of the sharks while swimming beside them instead of seven or eight...

After considering an 8-day bus trip to San Ignacio, we found Baja Expeditions, and I am SO glad! We flew for 2 hours (instead of riding on a bus for 2 days) and got to stay in Campo Ramon, right on the shore of the lagoon (rather than in a hotel 1 hour away). That meant we got 2 (rather... More

We spent four days on the beach at San Ignacio Lagoon. The flight from Tijuana was flawless, the bus ride to the camp was bumpy but fun! Jose, Martin, and Gretchen/Mariana made the trips to meet the whales informative and fun. Ask them about Pink Floyd; not just a band. The food was plentiful and delicious. Read The Eye of... More

Thank you for the review. I am laughing so hard right now, and not sure how to respond to the "Pink Floyd". That gives the expression size doesn't matter a whole new meaning. That had to be an adventure all its own on the water with the whales. We are so pleased you had as much fun as you did.... More
