We start this amazing adventure in La Paz, Mexico at a spectacular little villa. La Paz means peace, and you will begin to feel it as you unwind and get acclimated to Mexico in this quaint fishing town. Amenities include air conditioning, complimentary breakfast, swimming pool, and a beautiful terrace for a relaxing evening or sunrise yoga class, walking distance to shopping, dining, and a stroll along the Melacon.
Prepare yourself for an immersive 2 nights and 3 days camping next to the water at the magical Magdalena Bay, a special reserve for the protection of the Pacific Gray Whale. The spectacular and lavish camp setting is ideal for the breath-taking experience of watching whales as they frolic in the bay. For intimate encounters, you will have the opportunity to board motorized boats twice daily. The boats are skillfully operated by local boat craftsmen who have many years of experience working with guests and wildlife.
The spectacular and lavish camp setting, nestled in the dunes, is ideal for the breathe taking experience of watching the whales. Campsite is complete with walk-in tents, cots, pads and pillows for some “glamping” All delicious meals prepared with complimentary drinks in the evenings. Activities from camp include watching whales right from shore, yoga and meditation, exploring the spectacular wind swept dunes or guided kayaking excursions into the extensive mangrove estuaries. In the evening our naturalist guides present slide shows on the local flora and fauna with a special focus on gray whale natural history and behavior, along with group gatherings. Everything is optional and your discretion.
It is with great respect and concern for their conservation and protection that we embark on this whale watching journey of the heart. Each year in October the Grey Whales make a 2-3 month journey of 5,000–6,800 miles (8,000–11,000 km) from the Bering Sea down to the western coast of Baja Mexico to give birth to their calves. As they nurture their young, you will feel nurtured yourself as you reconnect to nature with these magnificent beings as your guide.
You will end your trip with a few days back in La Paz, where you will have the opportunity to reflect on your personal experiences on the beach and in the presence of the whales. Sunrise and sunset yoga, guided meditations, journal writing and sharing circles will expand on the depth of your pilgrimage, mirroring the pilgrimage of the whales. Further opportunities for day trips and snorkeling with whale sharks are available in La Paz.
