BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR, Mexico (KCBS) – Thrill seekers who marvel up close at whales during Northern California whale watching season are finding out simple watching pales in comparison to what you can witness 1,000 miles south of the Bay Area.
Those who have visited say there’s simply no place on earth quite like Laguna San Ignacio, in Mexico’s southern Baja Peninsula. There are California gray whales there this time of year, thousands of them every winter, migrating to their breeding and birthing grounds.
At this special lagoon, the whales are also watching the people who are watching them. If they like you, they may even let you touch them and allow you to play with their young.
