March 11 – 14, 2019 for only $795.00 per person!
Red Travel Mexico and I are offering a two night, three day trip to Magdalena Bay from La Paz, Mexico for $795.00! The trip to Magdalena Bay Eco Camp departs early on March 12 so you’d need to arrive in La Paz the night of the 11th!
Depart from La Paz early in the morning en route to Magdalena Bay, jewel of the Pacific and home to a staggering number of migratory and marine birds, sea turtles, and marine mammals including the migratory gray whale. We will stop at one of our favorite local ranchos for a snack and a hearty cup of cowboy coffee. Arriving to Magdalena Bay we will head out on the water for the short trip to our secluded island camp, searching for whales along the way. After happy hour, chat with your guide to learn about the natural history of the region. All meals included.
March 13 is Gray Whale Observation and Exploration of Magdalena Bay
After a good night’s rest wake up and enjoy a delicious breakfast at camp. Wake up early to watch the fishermen conservationists prepare their sea turtle monitoring nets. Today we will learn more about the gray whales, their incredible migration, and the importance of Magdalena Bay for breeding and calving to these magnificent creatures. We will head out in pangas (outboard skiffs) to look for gray whales. Friendly whales often approach the boats, and the mothers are known to push the young calves closer, which can make for an incredible interaction between two species.
Meals included today: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
