This is the programme richest in Cetaceans because it includes the possibility of going out to meet the gray whales, which are only present on the Pacific coast during this period. To see these whales come seeking the caresses from the visitors aboard a boat is an incredible and magical experience! Going into the water is prohibited, but considering the water’s turbidity and temperature, we are not missing out on much. The other half of the trip takes place on the Sea of Cortez on a comfortable cruising boat (28m) equipped with sea-kayaks. During the 5-day cruise between La Paz and Loreto, the boat sails the sea from island to island looking to meet the whales dolphins and swim with the seals. When possible, the kayaks provide for a more silent and more ecological approach of the cetaceans. Of course, the time will always be devoted to snorkeling and free-diving seront omnipresents.
