Gray Whales San ignacio lagoon

Our recent once in a lifetime expedition to Baja Mexico gave us an opportunity to observe and interact with some of the Planets iconic and endangered species .

The trip was run by Naturetrek UK , aboard the Searcher  based in San diego

We saw two Blue Whales, one stayed by the boat for nearly three hours , crystal clear waters allowed views rarely experienced , Humpbacks Whales breached beside the boat , snorkelling with a giant Whale Shark and Sea Lions  , Mobula rays flying about on the surface , and the iconic Gray Whales in San Ignacio lagoon for two days , these whales and their calves are happy to approach small boats and interact with people , a truly unique experience , and the short video I shot on my Gopro 4 black is proving popular on social media

The trip also included shore trips to deserted islands , giant cacti , reptiles , giant Elephant Seals and rare birds were abundant .
