Below is a video from Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic of Baja & the Sea of Cortez, considered to be the “Galapagos of the North.”
Each winter gray whales migrate south from their arctic feeding grounds to breed and rear their young in Baja California’s sheltered lagoons, making it one of North America’s premier whale watching sites.
During the days in the breeding lagoons of Bahia Magdalena, you venture among them in Zodiac landing craft. This gives you a water-level perspective for whale watching that is a rare privilege in the natural world. And you’re positioned perfectly for the increasingly common friendly encounters with these mammals that we’ve shared with the cruise guests.
