Location of Adventure
San Ignacio Lagoon, Mexico
Group Size Limit
Approximately 18 Travelers
A very important feature of our whale watching tours is the limited group size, as nature is best experienced with a small group of travelers. On this eco-travel adventure, we have exclusive use of our private camp. We divide our group into smaller numbers for whale-watching excursions, with each boat generally accommodating six to eight guests.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Airport transfers in Loreto, accommodations, meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, purified drinking water during activities and purified drinking water and soft drinks at meals, services of NHA Expedition Leader and local guides, most gratuities, all permits, entrance fees and taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end points of trip (Loreto, Mexico), alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport fees, early arrival or late departure airport transfers, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry, internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, optional travel insurance.
Physical Requirements
This adventure is not strenuous and does not require a high degree of physical fitness. You must be to walk up and down stairs, wade through shallow water to step in and out of the excursion skiffs, and sit on bench seats for long periods of time while whale watching. Depending on weather and sea conditions, boat excursions to the whales can be rough, bumpy and wet. Winds may be strong, water may spray into the boat, and temperatures may be cold. Optional hikes will also be available, and in order to participate, you should be able to walk unassisted for at least one mile. All activities are completely optional, and travelers should only participate in those activities with which they feel comfortable. If you are concerned with your personal physical capabilities with regard to the demands of this trip, please contact our office for further details, in addition to your own physician for his or her opinion.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip offers the closest possible whale encounters and is a must for lovers of marine wildlife. Please be aware that flights to and from Loreto, our start and finish point, are often very limited. We strongly advise signing up for this trip as early as possible to avoid problems with flight availability and expensive fares. Additionally, airlines tend to alter flight schedules on this route fairly often, so please be aware that we may need to address a schedule change after flights have been booked.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
