San Ignacio Lagoon Camp


Every winter, grey whales gather around San Ignacio Lagoon, halfway up the Baja California’s west coast, to give birth to and then nurse their calves into the spring. What is unique is the way in which these whales interact with the small tourist boats that head out to sea in search of them. The whales come up to the boats on their own accord and spend time right next to the vessel, looking passengers directly in the eye and even welcoming human touch. Some passengers recall the experience as a ‘life-changing’ one. This is sure to be a momentous and eternally-memorable interaction for anyone. The camp is a 1hr 50 minute flight from Cabo San Lucas to the private airstrip at San Ignacio Lagoon.
