Late each calendar year, gray whales begin one of the longest migrations on the planet, swimming from their feeding grounds in the north Pacific to their breeding grounds in protected lagoons along the west coast of Baja California, Mexico. Here, they mate and give birth to their calves. From January to March, the whales are concentrated in the protected, shallow waters of San Ignacio lagoon, offering one of the best whale watching opportunities in the world. OSU’s Marine Mammal Institute has been hosting educational expeditions here for more than 30 years.
We are pleased to offer a redesigned experience with land-based accommodations for two groups of 20 guests. The trip cost of $6,000 per person includes a tax-deductible donation to the MMI Graduate Student Fellowship Fund. Comfortable accommodations, group meals, learning through informal talks and field trips, and one-of-a-kind encounters with spectacular animals in their wild and beautiful environments form the core of this expedition.
We invite you to explore the photos and itineraries linked below for a look into this extraordinary adventure.
We have just a few spots left! If you would like to join the Baja Gray Whale Expedition either February 16–24 or February 28–March 8, 2023, please email email@example.com.
We look forward to traveling with you!
