Your adventure begins with a panoramic drive by comfortable air-conditioned coach.
Take in stunning views of the Baja Peninsula as you cross from the Sea of Cortez to the Pacific Ocean. Your bilingual naturalist guide will explain how the peninsula was formed and brief you on the endemic flora and fauna you may see on the drive.
Arrive at Puerto López Mateos -- a natural harbor shielded by the off-shore barrier of Isla Magdalena.
Here, you will board a skiff and set off for some wildlife spotting. Locals regard this as the best whale-watching site on the Pacific Coast. During the winter, the narrow waterway becomes a hub of whale activity. This is one of the three main lagoons in Mexico where gray whales come to give birth to their calves. Baby gray whales are known to be very curious and sometimes playfully approach the boat. You'll spend two hours on the water looking for whales before returning to the dock.
Enjoy a boxed lunch on the scenic return drive to Loreto and the ship.
