ENSEANADA WHALE WATCHING

Whale Watching in Ensenada, Mexico Whale Watching in Ensenada, Mexico

Every year In December thru April, the Eastern Pacific, or California, Gray Whale starts a 2 - 3 migration route beginning in the Bering and Chukchi seas and ending in the warm-water lagoons of Mexico's Baja peninsula, their round trip journey moves them through 12,500 miles of coastline. The Gray Whale is often described as the longest known mammal migration. The whales travel in small groups, both night and day, the Gray Whale averages approximately 120 km (80 miles) per day. By mid-December to early January, the majority of the Gray Whales are usually found between Monterey and Ensenada, where they are often seen from shore. This allows for several whale watching tours off of Ensenada. The final destinations of the whales are the coastal waters of Baja California and the southern Gulf of California, where they breed and the young are born. It is believed that the shallow waters in the lagoons there protect the newborn from sharks. If you did not get to see the whales on their journey, in February and March, the first Gray Whales will begin the trek back north to their summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chukchi seas. Pregnant females and nursing mothers with their newborn calves are the last to leave the lagoons, usually from late March to mid-April. Ensenada is a great local spot to view the whales as they make their journey. There are several whale watching tours off the coast of Ensenada. The whales like to show off and the boats get real close, if you are lucky you may even get to pet the whales. Below is a list of companies that provide whale watching tours and information in Ensenada.
