Baja Discovery has figured out the perfect formula for visiting the whales, teaching us about whales (and life outdoors), outstanding staff, and setting. How do they make such amazing meals so far from anywhere? The night sky was undiluted by nearby lights. We had lots...More

We liked this adventure so much we took 11 friends back with us for a second year. Just watching the whales from the campsite is enough: spy hops, nursing, breaches, and just old spouting but the physical contact with the whales is one of the...More

Yes, and it is darn good. The staff accommodate travelers needs as much as is possible. I am allergic to garlic and they took excellent care of me.
