Prepare for the adventure

  • Verify the boat counts with the whale watching permit (banderole) expedited by SEMARNAT.

  • Arrive 30 minutes before departure

  • To avoid nausea, take motion sickness medication an hour before getting on board, even if you never get sick, is always good to take precautions and enjoy the trip.

  • Have breakfast like you normally do. Tours last about 4 hours, so it is recommended to bring lunch; apples and citrus are a good option.

  • Stay warm, during winter season the wind is cold even if it is sunny; wear comfortable shoes and avoid wearing heels.

  • Don't forget the camera and if you have binoculars, much better.

Clouds don't determine the conditions of the sea, if it is a cloudy day but it's not raining and the water has white caps, the tour will be suspended; the security and comfort of the passengers comes first.

You can find hotels in Ensenada for all budgets, as well as restaurants that serve all kinds of regional, mexican and international dishes. And don't forget to pair your lunch and dinner with a Baja Californian wine, known internationally.

On your trip, you can also visit Ensenada's history museum, the boardwalk or "malecón" with it's Window to the Sea garden, the vineyards at Guadalupe Valley, also known as La ruta del Vino; La Bufadora blow hole, a marine geyser that shoots water up to 20 meters and more; or the Earth sala located in the Science Museum and Acuarium, among others.
