Every year, the peninsula of Baja is host to one of the most impressive journeys of the animal kingdom: the Grey whale migration. These mammals travel a total distance of 16,000 to 20,000 km to complete their round-trip voyage between their feeding grounds in Alaska, and their breeding lagoons in Baja California. On this trip to Puerto Chale, you can encounter mother whales and their newborn calves. Grey whales are known to be very friendly and curious and may sometimes swim up to the boats and seek human contact. This is definitely an experience you won’t want to miss!
