The gray whale is the most popular in Baja California Sur, however; There are 8 species of whales that visit the decline each year, including the orca, humpback, seri, minke, pilot, gray, whale shark and the world’s largest mammal, the blue whale.
The islands of Loreto are a great place to see these magnificent mammals, as the sighting of the gray whale and orca is known to be a great animated spectacle, as they are naturally curious and social. The gray whale likes to show off its children and get close enough to the boats to be seen on the front page. Something that you definitely cannot miss.
It is one of the true joys of an eco-tour of Baja Sur to get up close to these magnificent creatures. Gray whales have been known to playfully approach small boats, putting visitors at a distance.
