Gray Whale interactions in the Magdalena Bay Lagoons- one of the main reasons for visiting Loreto between Jan 1 and April 1.    Loreto is closest airport to fly in  commercially to get to these Pacific calving areas.       This video taken Feb 2014 Lopez Mateo.

Unbelievable Adventures

                 When is the BEST time to visit Loreto?

Well, that depends on what you want to do while here! November to May is the best time to do land based activities such as mule trips, hiking, tennis, golfing, biking and day trips to San Javier or Mulege. Kayaking is also popular in these cooler months.  January to April is the best time to experience the Gray Whale Migration in the pacific Calving Lagoons. Feb and March is the most likely time to see Blue whales, Finback Whales, and Humpbacks in our local waters. May to December is the best time for swimming, snorkelling, diving, or the Glass bottom boat as the water is warm and visibility good. Sport fishing varies by season, see the Fishing Page. Every day is a good day to go fishing!
