Laguna San Ignacio Whale Watching Tour:   7 days

 

Tour date for 2018:   Tuesday, January 23rd to Monday, January 29th!

Laguna San Ignacio, located in Southern Baja California, is a main destination, and migratory route for the California Gray Whale. Each year the whales travel 10,000 to 12,000 miles roundtrip from the cold Arctic Seas to their mating, and calving grounds in the warm waters of Mexico. Laguna San Ignacio has become a Gray Whale nursery as mothers are there to give birth, and nurse their young for a period of three months before traveling back up north.

This is a 6 day event, complete with all meals, 2 nights of hotel accommodations (one night on the way down, and one night coming back), comfortable cabin accommodations at Laguna San Ignacio, whale watching activities, roundtrip transportation, and gorgeous scenery in every directions at all times!

The minimum number of participants for this trip is 6, and our maximum is 10.

Artists, painters, photographers, nature lovers, travelers, and Baja Adventurers don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to come up close with the friendly Gray Whales, and gentle leviathans of our seas!

About the Big Horn Sheep

 

IMG_9678

The desert bighorn has become well adapted to living in the desert heat and cold and, unlike most mammals, their body temperature can safely fluctuate several degrees. During the heat of the day, they often rest in the shade of trees and caves.

Southern desert bighorn sheep are adapted to a desert mountain environment with little or no permanent water. Some may go without visiting water for weeks or months, sustaining their body moisture from food and from rainwater collected in temporary rock pools. They may have the ability to lose up to 30% of their body weight and still survive.

After drinking water, they quickly recover from their dehydrated condition.   Wildlife ecologists are just beginning to study the importance of this adaptive strategy, which has allowed small bands of desert bighorns to survive in areas too dry for many of their predators.
