Gray whale trips 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 days

These gray whale trips start in San Diego. We meet you and drive you to the Ensenada Airport for your quick flight south to Guerrero Negro. There you drive in one of our vans about 1 hour to the seaside tented lodge. Whale watching takes place on the Pacific Coast (West) side of Baja in remote Laguna Ojo de Liebre (formerly known as Scammon's Lagoon).

Special 7 day gray whale trip begins and end in Loreto and then ride across the peninsula a shorter drive time and this year visits both Laguna Ojo de Liebre and San Ignacio Lagoons.

Blue whale trips originate at Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico. You fly in and we meet you at the Loreto Airport. This is whale watching of the more traditional style and takes place on the Sea of Cortez in small (25 foot) power boats.

Gray and Blue whale combination trips originate at Loreto or La Paz or Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. You fly in and we meet you at the airport. We combine both of the two types of whale watching. These are now our most popular tours. 8, 9 & 10, 13 & 14 day trips.

Gray Whale Safari style camp on the shore: Sleep with the whales. Watch them jump from your shoreside cabin tent or from the very large dining tent. Enjoy boat rides with the whales literally only a few minutes ride from the embarkation point that is just yards from where you will sleep.

This 2015 season we have 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 13 & 14 day whale watching adventures, beginning at only $1,595. Nobody has a more varied, nor a more interesting schedule.

About Baja Jones
Everything there is to know about gray whales! (almost) a great page for student reports.
Trip insurance info

Since 1992 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) 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.  Our site is very large with lots of information about all of the animals we regularly view during our many trips.  We are Whale watching experts and Mexico specialists and have helped thousands of people realize lifelong dreams. Here are our current marine trips:  gray whales, blue whales of Loreto, Arctic Narwhals, the Unicorn of the sea.  Be sure and request our EBrochures .

These trips are relatively all inclusive.   We travel over the road in Suburbans or vans.  Also check out the Loreto Blue Whale adventures.  Gray whale trips are 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8  days in length.  8, 9, 10, 13 & 14 day 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.  Shop carefully before choosing a tour operator and a location.  Here's a page that helps compare some of the choices.   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 2014 did experience close touching encounters. (that was every group, but one 3 day special air charter group in 2001)  Yes, 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 you join us at!   After the 1st hour you will not count how many whales you see.   It will no longer matter to you. 

We are Baja California's premier whale watching tour operator.
More experience on the water than anyone.
More in depth knowledge about the gray whales.

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

The only Baja whale watch tour operator on that list!
