Located just below the elbow of Baja California, San Ignacio lagoon is the temporary home to some of the peninsula's most famous visitors- the Gray Whales. Each winter, pregnant females, and lustful males swim five thousand miles from the Arctic to visit this lagoon. Here, within a few hundred square miles, eighty percent of the majestic whales' life cycle transpires. Observe feeding, nursing, teaching, cuddling, and courtship from a tiny fishing boat just a few feet away.
