Whale watching is a very popular tourist pastime along the Baja coast of southern California and Mexico, where certain species pass by on their long migration routes. Their shear size alone is enough to make them among the most spectacular creatures to watch, but many aspects of their behavior are fascinating as well. Such organizations as Baja Expeditions have been set up to help people plan their whale-watch trips.
The company is based not in California, but in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, which is at the end of a long narrow peninsula. More specifically, it operates in the area around the San Ignacio Lagoon, a "sleepy little fishing village." Every winter, gray whales congregate here, and so do their thousands of fans. The gray whale is one of the relatively small kinds, being only 50 feet in length, compared with 100 for the blue. They are covered with barnacles and eat small ocean bottom dwellers. EB operates a camp called Campo Ramon for the benefit of tourists.
