Itinerary for 5 day Gray whale trip

Itinerary for combination blue whale and gray whale watching

Day 1:  We will meet you at the airport, then go directly to the motel.  Most of our clients use Horizon Airlines (Alaska Air) from Los Angeles direct to Loreto, B.C.S. Once you're settled into the El Dorado Hotel (or whichever hotel we might use) we generally have an orientation meeting and discuss the particulars of the coming whale watching trips. There is usually some unstructured time scheduled until dinner.  At dinner we'll talk about what to expect while out on the water.



Day 2, 3 & 4:  We'll have breakfast and then depart on our Blue Whale quest.  4 to 6 hours on the water and then back to Loreto Harbor. We expect each of these days to be similar, but marine conditions and whale watching can be wildly different from day to day. That is part of the excitement of this type of adventure. Once we are back in town, the late afternoon will be yours to do with as you please.   There is an interesting street of artisans and T-shirt shops just a couple blocks from the motel.   The mission (Baja's first mission) is nearby as well.   Dinner will be in one of several nice restaurants within walking distance of the ocean & of our hotel.

Our four day Blue whale trips have the same itinerary, but only two days of whale watching.

Day 5:  Today is departure and travel home day. Following breakfast you normally have a couple hours free time before leaving for the airport. We arrange your transport from the hotel to meet the timing of your flight, normally around a 2:00 PM departure.



Note:  Our daily itineraries are only a guide to what you may expect.  Each day brings a unique mix of weather conditions and animal activities.  Sometimes we alter the normal itinerary to better enhance your experience.  Our primary mission is to help you to experience the World's Greatest Whale Watching in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Weather can be a factor on any given day.Winter on the Sea of Cortez can mean some very windy days that might force us to cancel whale watching that day. Our experience over the past 10 seasons has been that weather conditions with wind too strong for us to leave the harbor almost never last more than one day.
