Gray Whale Migration Mexico
November 30, 2011 by staff
Gray Whale Migration Mexico, Every year thousands of California gray whales migrate 6,000 miles from the cold waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas to the warm waters of Baja California’s central Pacific coast. From mid-December through March, Scammon’s Lagoon is the destination of the largest number of these magnificent mammals, approximately 1,500 (including newborn calves) every year.
To view the California gray whales as they blow, sound, mate and calve in their natural habitat is an awe-inspiring experience that will never be forgotten!
More than 20 species of cetaceans spend time around Baja. Grays breed and calve in the lagoons along the Pacific. Bahia Magdalena is a center for gray whale observation. Humpbacks and blues breed in the Sea of Cortez; Bahia de los Angeles is the center there. If you’re the kind of person who prefers to remain on shore, the Cabo San Lucas at the peninsula’s southern tip is a good spot to observe passing whales and have your feet firmly planted on the ground.
The Sonoran desert and clear blue waters surrounding La Unica near Bahia de Los Angeles (Bay of the Angels) offer a wide variety of diverse habitats and abundant food supply. You’ll participate in one of the most spectacular collection of plants, marine mammals and birds found anywhere in the world. 23 species of whales and dolphins, including the largest whales in the world, the Blue and Fin whales have been sighted in Canal de Los Baenes (whale canal), just east of La Unica. 120 species of cactus, 800 species of fish and the largest concentration of seabirds found anywhere in the Sea of Cortez are yours to discover.
