Baja Custom Tours include no more than 9 guests and begin and end in San Diego. Transportation is in comfortable custom 4x4 Ford vans. Lodgings are local motels with clean rooms and individual bathrooms. All food is included - enjoy lots of seafood as well as traditional Mexican dishes.
We will whalewatch from pangas (small boats driven by very experienced local boatmen) which allows us to observe the extraordinary number of gray whales up close and personal. Many are friendly and seem to seek out human interaction. We will take up to 4 whale trips to different parts of the lagoons to enjoy diverse scenery and whale behavior.
 Observe other local wildlife like ospreys, marsh birds, marine mammals, and pronghorn antelope. One of our whale trips includes a drive through the Guerrero Negro salt works - one of the largest in the world.
