Magdalena Bay 2-Night Trip Itinerary

This is the ultimate Baja California whale watching experience. Spend more time on the magical Isla Magdalena and get a feel for the real Baja lifestyle. You’ll stay in the house of a local fisherman in a mystical fishing village and enjoy meals of fresh seafood such as fish and lobster.

You’ll embark on three whale-watching expeditions with no time limit. Over the three days you can expect life-changing encounters with the majestic California gray whales that congregate in the sheltered bay which is one of their breeding grounds. Watch mothers teach their calves how to breathe, breach, and dive, and you may be treated to the spy-hopping phenomenon.

As well as sunrises and sunsets over the bay, you will explore the area with visits to the beautiful mangroves, walks over the sand dunes, strolls along the Pacific beaches peppered with sand dollars, and sightings of various wildlife that live in the area.
