What a fantastic day we had here in Laguna San Ignacio! We woke at anchor just outside the entrance to the calving lagoon. The area had what seemed like a countless amount of grey whales. The lagoon is one of only three the whales come to birth and mate in. Many boats were able to see mothers and calves interacting with each other. Some were fortunate enough to get to interact with the grey whales themselves when they would meander up to the panga boats to check us out. These whales, which were once nearly hunted to extinction, are now coming up to humans in the lagoons and having positive interactions with them. It is truly an amazing site to see and moment to share with this special species.
