2020 dates and prices coming soon.

Our Whale Watching event always proves to be a uniquely memorable event for those lucky guests who travel with us to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.

The Sea of Cortez is a haven for whales and dolphins - having one of the most densest populations of both in the world - Blue whales, humpbacks and grey whales are guaranteed. Hosted by leading Marine Biologist Michael Fishbach, one of the world’s foremost experts on whales, you will get unprecedented access to the Sea of Cortez and a lifetime's worth of knowledge to call upon should you want to learn about the local marine life.

The whales we are likely to see on this trip include: blue, fin, humpback, Bryde’s, short fin pilot, also, common and bottle nosed dolphins, orca, grey whales, dwarf sperm and sperm whales; California sea lions and a host of birds including blue footed and brown booby, red billed tropic birds, zillions of brown pelicans and magnificent frigate birds.
