Have you ever dreamed of touching a wild whale? Are you called to experience the thrill of seeing and touching the gentle, giant Gray Whales in the natural beauty of San Ignacio Lagoon? This is the one place on our planet where you can have a magical and friendly Whale encounter. Make meaningful contact with them as they come up to our boat where you can touch, pet and even kiss these friendly Gray Whales.
Every year Gray whales migrate more than 10,000 miles roundtrip, between their summer feeding grounds in the Arctic and the coastal lagoons of southern Baja. San Ignacio is one of the lagoons that is a winter home of the Gray whale. The whales use these protected, shallow, warm waters as their breeding and birthing waters. San Ignacio is the only lagoon that remains undeveloped and pristine.
The Gray whales are known as the "Friendliest whales on Earth!" as they often seek out boats and even bring their young calves up to the boats to visit, observe and be touched by people. What makes this even more incredible, is that for over 100 years, San Ignacio lagoon was used relentlessly by whalers to trap and kill the Gray whales. The Grays were known to the whalers as "Devil Fish" as they were one of the only species of whale to fight back aggressively against the whalers. Whaling was halted in 1946, which means some of the individual whales were the same ones who were hunted by man and now they are the friendliest whales on earth! This is the ultimate example of true forgiveness. On this trip you will be immersed in the energy of pure forgiveness in the presence of the Gray whales.

It is always a good idea to purchase travel insurance for your trip in case you need to cancel your trip or tour for any reason. We recommend World Nomads for all your travel insurance needs.
We love World Nomads because they are dedicated to promoting responsible travel and have a give back program to support charities around the world.
You will be immersed in the energy of Forgiveness as the Gray whales will teach us through their forgiveness of humans for hunting them in the very same bays where they now trust and honor you by coming close to the boat and even bringing their young calves for you to touch and even kiss. Join Whale Wisdom Expert and Dolphin Energy Healer, Anne Gordon. Anne will help you open up and connect on a deep spiritual level through guided meditations and communications to receive the gifts of wisdom, love and forgiveness from the Gray whales of San Ignacio lagoon.
