Trip overview

Looking to make your stay in Cabo or La Paz a truly incredible experience? Then hop on a private charter flight out of there and up north to San Ignacio to witness one of nature’s greatest wonders as you get up close and personal with gray whale calves and their mothers. Set out on an early day with an 8:00 am pick up from your hotel lobby en route to your private charter flight where you will meet your guide who will host you for an incredible day. Enjoy the bird’s eye view of Baja Sur on your 1 hour flight up to San Ignacio Lagoon where you will head out for a 90 minute whale watching boat ride alongside your guide. Get a chance to be one of the few people lucky enough in the world to greet these gentle giants and feel their calm energy sweep all of your worries away. Enjoy a quick lunch and then jump back on your private flight back in time for dinner where you’ll get a chance to share your experience with your friends.

  • On itinerary: We will make all efforts to adhere to the itinerary described above, but we may modify the itinerary due to wind, weather, and other factors. The safety and enjoyment of our travelers are our top priorities. Please see our terms and conditions for more information. We do not guarantee wildlife sightings, interaction or behavior.

  • On insurance: All of our experiences are covered by  an Emergency Medical Expenses insurance. In order to obtain coverage, each guest MUST SIGN A LIABILITY WAIVER BEFORE DEPARTURE. 

  • Climate and weather: La Paz is situated on the Gulf of California on the southern part of the Baja California peninsula. It is separated from the Pacific by a desert environment with low mountains in between. We get large temperature swings, typically in the late fall and spring, up to 104 degrees fahrenheit (40 degrees celsius). This can be true even during winter. Outside of summer, we recommend packing for HOT and COLD weather. Most importantly, be prepared for a sun that’s stronger than you may be used to due to our latitude. Remember, a sunburn takes just a couple hours to develop, but it can ruin the rest of your trip. Stay shaded and stay hydrated. 

  • Luggage: For day trips, you’ll want to bring a small bag or backpack for your water bottle and personal items.
