We had a great experience without interfering with the wildlife. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Just a word of caution about parking. Ensure you're aware of the parking rules otherwise it can be very expensive to exit.

There were 3 of us on a day-long trip to Magdalena Bay to see the California Gray Whale moms and calves. These are the so-called 'friendly whales,' not the humpback whales which frequent the waters off Cabo.

Most excursions like this don't guarantee that you will see whales but these folks made sure you would. They had several boats out and all around the bay and they were in communication with each other.
