    Let's hug the whale!
    Every year, gray whales travel south along the coast of North America towards the Gulf of California, where they mate and give birth. This spectacle attracts whale lovers from all over the world to Mexico. Gray whales are one of the friendliest whales, they will come close to boats, lay their heads on the side, and allow people to touch, hug, scratch and kiss them! We don't usually touch wild animals, but these giants seem to enjoy the attention from people and spend a lot of time near boats.

    We will live in a real fishing village on the ocean shore
    We will live in a real fishing village on the ocean shore
    Puerto San Carlos is a tiny fishing town: we will live in a cozy, colorful hotel, try Mexican cuisine and seafood, communicate with the locals (you should learn a few words in Spanish in advance, because almost no one here speaks English or even Russian! :) and enjoy incredible sunrises and sunsets in the ocean!

    Let's go out into the open ocean in search of mobulas and humpback whales
    Our autumn expedition to Mexico showed that a large number of interesting marine animals live here! We may encounter humpback whales, giant schools of mobulas, marlin, fur seals and many other pelagic animals.
Day 1
Arrival in Mexico City, the capital of Mexico. Flight to La Paz. Transfer to the fishing village of San Carlos (about 3.5 hours). Along the way we look at cacti, look for pitaya and take pictures! In the evening, check-in at the hotel, briefing. Our first day in the ocean awaits us early tomorrow - we need to have a good rest :)
Day 2-6
We will spend these 5 days in the iconic place of Bahia Magdalena, where we will go out to sea in search of gray whales. Bahia Magdalena is a famous spot for observing the giants of the sea in the Gulf of California. Here the whales feel calm and come very close to the boats. This day will be unforgettable for all expedition participants!
In addition, we will go out into the ocean in search of other whales and underwater animals. The ocean here is very rich: humpback whales, dolphins, mobulas, fur seals, marlins! And sometimes there are killer whales and blue whales! Every day at dawn we will go out into the ocean and return closer to sunset, because we don't want to miss a second :)
Day 7
Flight to Mexico City and flight home.
Cost: 3200 USD
