More info: Grey whale watching Magdalena bay
While the Magdalena Bay is a natural sanctuary of great marine biodiversity, it also shows a contrasting, typical face of Baja California, which is the combination of the sea and the desert. Along the Bay there are many rocky islands and uninhabited beaches and extensive dunes which are visited each winter by hundreds of tourists who spend night on the island in the middle of a total silence, under the Moonlight, listening to the deep breathing of the whales when they come out to get some air. A magical experience that you can’t miss.
The sighting of these giant mammals and their offspring a few meters of distance, and if you’re lucky, touching one of the friendly whale calves, this is possible in Bahia Magdalena, where you can see the gray whale, mammal, measuring 12 to 16 meters long and can weigh from 20 to 35 tons.
Migration performed this whale is considered the longest of any mammal; travel approximately 16,000 km during 6 months of back and forth, from the Arctic to Baja California Sur where can swim non-stop for periods of 20 hours at a speed of 10 knots or more speed.
