Hello whalewatchers: Everyone enjoyed a nice day on San Benito Island today. We had some breeze and a cloud cover, so it was perfect conditions for a walk–either a short one or getting around the entire island. Passengers spotted Guadalupe fur seals, elephant seals and California sea lions, in addition to the nesting osprey and […]
A great sunrise this morning! The lighting on the peninsula in this area is stunning! We arrived at Isla San Francisco for a walk and a snorkel session. The view from the ridge is certainly a highlight. From here you can see the bay with all the boats from the perfect elevation.
We’ve had a great morning at Isla Santa Catalina. First it was an early walk, then a skiff ride, and then a snorkel session.
The highlight, hands-down, was seeing bottlenose dolphin during […]
Hello whalewatchers: We are enjoying a beautiful sunrise at one of our favorite spots–Punta Colorado at Isla San Jose. We took everyone ashore early for some birding and botanizing as it is going to be a hot day.
More later, Team Searcher
We had another great day today. A walk, and then a snorkel or a […]
We started the day in Bahia La Paz with a beautiful sunrise and breakfast. The weather is awesome with light winds and calm seas. We plan to snorkel with whale sharks this morning. Our partner Jesus with Chicalera Tours arrived at 8 am. We loaded all the snorkelers and observers in two of his […]
Our whalewatchers had a wonderful time during the second tour of the season. With majestic views and plenty of sightings, here were a few of our favorite moments!
We arrived to Laguna San Ignacio this morning after breakfast and were greeted by lots of life outside the lagoon–birds and dolphins feeding on small bait fish, gray whales and calm weather.
After we anchored inside the lagoon, we sent the pangas out right away and everyone had a close encounter with a whale on […]
Today was a great day for everyone ashore at Isla San Benito! There were elephant seal pups and some remaining males, Guadalupe fur seals, and nesting ospreys. The photography options were great! In addition, the island looks a lot greener this trip, so I am sure the photographers were busy with blooms and plants […]
We entered Mexico in Ensenada this morning at daylight and then traveled out to Islas Todos Santos for a look at some pinnipeds (seals and sea lions). Three different species were there: Northern elephant seals, harbor seals and California sea lions. We also saw a variety of birds, some on […]
Passengers on Tour #1 were lucky to encounter these wonderful rays one night while they were feeding under the lights of the boat!
“Mobula rays’ elusive nature and skittish behaviour in front of divers has made them difficult to observe in the wild, except when they breach the water.”
Hello whale watchers,
What a day we had today! It started with an early morning wake-up wat Los Islotes where we would fit in an early snorkel session. All the snorkelers returned with big smiled from swimming with sea lions and all the colorful reef fishes. Many thanks to Naturalist Rob N. for the […]
After a great breakfast and beautiful sunrise ,we went offshore to find blue whales. It didn’t take very long to find a blue whale. It was the same whale in the same area as the day before, so it felt like an old friend!
Then the “boyz on the roof” spotted multiple spouts further away, […]
