Day 1 – Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Camp
We will depart early from La Paz, crossing the peninsula to the Pacific Coast, arriving to Magdalena Bay, “jewel of the Pacific”. Enjoy a picnic lunch while out on the water view the gray whales that come here on their yearly migration to mate and calve before returning to Bering Sea. Afterwards, you’ll arrive at the RED camp. Your guide will get you settled into camp, and you’ll have the chance to explore the natural surroundings. After a scrumptious dinner, see the stars like you have never seen them before heading to bed in stand up tents with raised beds, comfortable linens, and a private porch area.
Day 2 – Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Camp
After a hot breakfast make your way out onto the bay in search for gray whales. Along the way your guide will fill you on the incredible migration the whales make each year. February – March is peak whale observation season, and if you are lucky you will get to see one up close. Back at camp, you will have the afternoon to explore mangroves and dunes before dinner.
Day 3 – Magdalena Bay to La Paz
After breakfast you’ll have the chance to explore the natural wonders of Magdalena Bay before heading back to La Paz. You’ll have the afternoon and evening to yourselves

Reducing our footprint
RED’s zero-waste goal for trips to Espíritu Santo minimizes our environmental impact. Lunch and snacks are sourced from local providers focusing on fresh versus packaged. Recyclables are separated onsite and transferred to a processing facility and all organic waste is composted onsite.
RED designs its operational model to include local residents, whether as microenterprises, or directly as individuals, helping to diversify incomes and provide training and skills building through RED’s capacity building programs.
Traveling Roots – Raising awareness with local youth
We can’t appreciate what we haven’t experienced. RED provides scholarships to underserved local youth to visit RED’s sea turtle research camp and learn about the importance of protecting our natural treasures
