Magdalena Bay

Feb 15, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Today was all about the gray whales! We anchored in Magdalena Bay, one of three primary calving and breeding lagoons in Baja California. Gray whales utilize these lagoons as safe sites to give birth, raise their young, socialize, breed, and prepare for the long journey north to feed. Listening to the breath of these large cetaceans and witnessing their fascinating behavior transports any observer to another world entirely.
