The Great Gray Whales of Baja

Make Giant Friendships at Sea on Mexico's Baja Peninsula
M. Lyons
“The whale watching was absolutely the best! We had a fantastic group and fantastic whale experiences. The trip was amazing, a real highlight of my travel experiences.”

T. Bennett 
"Melissa Scott was incredible, even by Nat Hab standards. Her enthusiasm and energy appeared to have no bounds. She was extremely knowledgeable, even on topics far afield from our present trip. As with all Nat Hab expedition leaders, Melissa did everything in her power to make this an experience of a lifetime!"

E. Moratti
"Awesome Expedition Leader. I cannot imagine anyone more knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, and professional."

M. McCann
"Your staff and the whales themselves made this trip far exceed our expectations. Our whale encounters were emotionally overwhelming and your guiding staff really went far out of their way to make sure our experience was the best possible."

J. Bily 
"Melissa is an outstanding trip leader! She took great care to spread herself around and pay attention to everyone. She knows her stuff and was a great font of knowledge about all we saw and did."

B. Gonzalez
"The Natural Habitat staff was wonderful (as expected). The staff at the Kuyima camp was absolutely wonderful -- welcoming, cheerful, helpful and friendly. The camp and facilities were meticulous. The guides knowledge and love of wildlife makes it so enjoyable to be with them. I was amazed at the cleanliness, comfort and delicious meals provided in such a remote setting."

S. Dierks
"Our family has just returned from the Baja whale watch trip. We all agreed that this was a true adventure, and a most amazing trip. The staff, both from Natural Habitat and from San Ignacio were warm, well-educated in their areas and genuinely professional in the sharing of their skills. Our guides were great companions who seemed to enjoy all the spouting and flukes and "friendlies" as much as we first-timers did. And the whales! You already know that they provide, of their own accord, a most amazing encounter."

R. Perez
"It was truly life changing for me. I view things in a different light now. It was an unbelievable trip. Everyone did a fantastic job, all the way from the camp staff to Natural Habitat staff. Your office staff did an amazing job, especially in providing excellent customer service. I had a lot of concerns before the departure, but the office staff was always on top of it. Great job!"

S. Townsend
"Natural Habitat is a great company and I am very excited to travel with you again soon. I have done a lot of wildlife viewing in my life and I think that this was the best wildlife viewing I have ever come across. I mean, the whales came right up to the boat. It doesn't get much better than that."

E. Ross
"This trip was wonderful -- I especially loved learning, and watching my son learn, from a well-trained field biologist. All the staff was top-notch and having a knowledgeable and personable guide was essential."

N. Yankoffski
“I would repeat this trip whenever I can – everything worked well – but the highlight, of course, were the whales. I’m a whale enthusiast and being able to scratch a gray whale and look directly in their eye was indescribable – my level of joy was beyond what I had known before!”

P. Graham
“Our trip to Baja was a wonderful experience. While we were there our weather was perfect. I can’t say enough about our Expedition Leader. Gracious, knowledgeable, helpful, and organized are a few of the adjectives I can think of. Natural Habitat is one of the best. You were so helpful when I decided to change my plans on the tour I wanted to take. Local guides and boat drivers were outstanding. I compliment the country of Mexico for doing the right thing on the Whale Preserve and still keeping the local fishermen in mind as well as the ecology of whales. Thank you for all you do to please your guests.”

B. Kotek
“It was such a great inspiration to see the balance of community and environment at work – successfully with the plan for continuation and improvement of environmental education and conservation. That thrills me!”

C. Wykoff
"This was an amazing adventure... the whales were truly majestic. It was such a joy to wait for them, to photograph them, to interact with them and to sometimes simply listen to them breathe."
