Hi, Im Nichole and I would like to tell you about my
experience Whale Watching. Ive been out on San Ignacio Lagoon, which is
one of three of the most well known places to go whale watching in Baja
California. You can also go whale watching at Scammons lagoon, near
Guerrero Negro or at Magdalena Bay.
Whale watching in Baja California is an awesome thing to
do. I went whale watching with my mom, dad, brothers (2), and some friends
of my dad! It was in the late winter/Early spring, between January and
March. Our boat drivers name was Cuco. He took us whale watching out on
San Ignacio Lagoon for about 3 or 4 hours. We went out for the fun, but
also learned a lot too, so it was also educational.
Whales are common with us in many ways. For instance:
|#1 they are mammals and so are we|
|#2 they have fun times with their family just like we do|
|#3 they travel and so do we|
|#4 they grow just like we do|
|#5 they love to play around just like we do!|
Gray whales at once were almost extinct! Which was very
sad, I think. Dont you think so too? I love gray whales. They are one
of my favorite animals. Although some people think they are ugly creatures
they really arent. Gray whales may be very bumpy on the outside, but in
the inside they have feelings for everyone who is nice, generous, and
loving to them. Gray whales are awesome especially if you get to watch
them play with each other.
As far as the weather and what to pack if you are going
whale watching in Baja California
you might want to pack some shorts
and a pair of pants just in case it gets cold (ed. note: especially
along the Pacific Coast). You should pack T-shirts, a sweater, a
toothbrush, toothpaste, sandals, socks, tennis shoes, chapstick, a brush,
a ponytail holder if your hair is long enough (ed. note: Ahh
