One of the most memorable experiences of my life - seeing and touching whales in a eco-friendly, responsible way. Baja Ecotour staff were extraordinarily friendly, fun, smart and made the experience all around excellent. The rustic camp is comfy, with tasty meals, and you can see the Milky Way clearly (no city lights). Plenty of time in small boats in... More

If you want a magical, wonder-filled experience, go to Campo Cortez and visit the mamas and babies as they guilde up to your boat, asking to make contact. Watching and touching and sometimes even kissing these magnificent creatures is awe inspiring. And you also get Rodrigo, Lorna, MT and Noly, as well all the other terrific staff. They are all...

My wife and me took part on a airtrip in february 2017. We where at no time disappointed and found our money well invested. A short summary: To the whales: The were always plenty and even at this early point of the season friendly and touchable. The nature-experience of our lives. The internet is full with such movies. Believe them.... More

The Baja Ecotours knowledgeable guides and boat captains , who are certified to do this, made our twice-daily excursions to see the whales and their babies a wonderful experience. The mothers would bring their babies to our boat and actually play with us! We were actually able to pet them several times. It was a thrilling experience! Highly recommend this... More

This was one of our favorite trips and one we would readily do again. The camp and staff (Rodrigo, Lorna,MT, Marie, and everyone else were awesome. The accommodations were great as we were right on the lagoon and off the grid. The food was great also. Home made tortillas (best ever). Oh, and by the way the whale watching and... More

Whale-watching was only a part, though a very major one, of this experience. There is a sense of sanctuary and spirituality to San Ignacio Lagoon and its incredible grey whales. Whether just looking at, touching, or kissing the moms and their babies, I was inbued with a sense of peace and tranquility, as though I was privileged to be an... More

Baja Ecotours has cabins in a pristine and beautiful part of the lagoon. Superb and knowledgable guides, careful and competent panga drivers, delicious food, and cooperative whales every day. Patting the curious babies when they came up to the side of the boat was certainly a highlight! We'd come back in a minute.

I will keep this brief, but the bottom line is, "GO ON THIS TRIP"! I can't stop thinking about it. I have been on several "eco trips" so I am not just reveling in the newness of being "away from it all". The guides, the staff, the other clients, all added something to my life that I will forever cherish.... More
