Since 1994 every person who has traveled with Keith, anywhere in the world, has seen whales on every whale watch day! (Except for one wind blown trip).  Since 1996 every 5 & 6 day  group Keith has brought to Laguna Ojo de Liebre (Scammon's Lagoon) in January, February and March has had the opportunity to touch a wild whale.  No one else, anywhere in the world, can match our record.    This page contains information about our various trip schedules.  Click the various blue links to read detailed information. 

These trips are relatively all inclusive.   We travel over the road in Suburbans or vans for our combination gray and blue whale trips. You fly down to Guerrero Negro for our gray whale trips.   Combo trips take you to both sides of Baja and put you close to Gray whales and Blue whales and many other species of cetacean.  You sleep in clean motel rooms on soft beds or in our Seaside tented lodge that is equipped with comfortable beds, comforters, pillows, robes, gas fired hot water showers and flush toilets. We eat most meals in local restaurants or really terrific meals in our dining tent at the shore.    What dates are best?  Our brochure tells a lot more but read this page that tells the different types of activity you can expect to see based upon observations in previous seasons.  To sign up for one of our trips email us or phone us.  Click here for complete contact information.  We are the ONLY whale watch tour operator anywhere in the world who has ever offered a money back guarantee that clients would have the chance to touch a wild whale.    Click here for details.


Want to do your whale watching trip with Keith along as the guide / naturalist? Ask us which trips he is scheduled to be along on.

But we want you to know that after 20 years, our staff is highly skilled, deeply committed to giving great vacations and fun to be around. All of our staff has 5, 10 or 20 years or more of tourism and whale watching experience.

Most of the crew was chosen for their friendly, open and approachable personality and attitudes so they could make up for Keith's less open demeanor. Then through years of practice and training and experience on the water they have developed into a great whale watching crew.

Whichever trip you choose, you will be well taken care.

The most frequently asked questions are these:  How close will I get to a whale?  Will we get to pet a whale?  How many whales will I see?   Do you guarantee that I will touch a whale?

Our response to the question about how close we get is to say that 99.5% of our groups from 1994 through 2015 did experience close touching encounters. (that was every group, but one 3 day special air charter group in 2001 and a family in April 2015)  Yes, at one time we did have one trip date each year that carried a money back guarantee for 5 years.   Nobody else in the world dared match that guarantee nor could they match our unblemished success record.
During all of our trip dates (click here to view dates) we  guarantee that there will be tons of gray whales present inside the whale watching lagoon!   After the 1st hour you will not count how many whales you see.   It will no longer matter to you. 

We were named to the National Geographic Adventurer Magazine list of the "World's Best Adventure Tour Operators".

The only Baja whale watch tour operator on that list!
