My wife and I got back from a Baja whale cruise with Lindblad in February.

·         The purpose of the cruise is gray whales, gray whales, and then more gray whales.

·         You get gray whales, gray whales and more gray whales.  Oh, and some visits to local, undeveloped islands to look at flora            and fauna.

·         On the Zodiacs, or the local Pangas, while out whale watching you might see 5 whales blowing, spy hopping, or breaching              AT THE SAME TIME.  They estimate there might be 250-300 in the areas where you are watching.

·         No promises, but I you might well get a chance to “pet” a whale and perhaps get a whale mite on your finger (Don’t worry,              we do not taste good to whale mites.)

·         The cabins are really, really, tiny, but functional and kept clean.

·         The food is good, basic, although sometimes not hot enough for my tastes.  Lots of fresh local fish.

·         Naturalists and staff are excellent and have a deep and profound knowledge of whales, other local sea life, and the area.

·         The ship and crew are American and it the Stars and Stripes are on the fantail. 


Finally, with apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson,

·         Whales to right of them,

·         Whales to left of them,

·         Whales in front of them,

·         Into the sea of the whales they rode.
