Cuddle a whale in Baja California Mexico
Why? Closer encounters with massive mammals. You can see whales in lots of places but there are few spots where you can actually give one a hug. From December to April grey whales gather in Baja California s San Ignacio Lagoon to mate calve nurture their young and so it seems have a jolly old time with the weird human creatures that sail out to see them.
Despite having been hunted to near extinction these greys bear no grudge; indeed they bump into boats and surface within touching distance inviting pats and strokes. However there s only a short window of opportunity to see the greys here each year with February March and April the best months and good trips sell out far often years in advance.
