This Week Allaina Kling Travels With Lindblad Expeditions on Their New Itinerary – Where the Whales Are: Inside Magdalena Bay Aboard National Geographic Sea Bird
Bahía Magdalena, where the gray whale mothers and calves bond after the longest mammal migration on earth, has been part of Lindblad’s Baja itineraries for 30 years. On this compact trip, they are focusing on this splendid bay and its environs—living among the whales on a floating base camp, and venturing out in Zodiacs for exhilarating up-close encounters with curious calves and gentle mothers. And so much more. Explore the mangroves by kayak. Mountain bike over Sahara-like stretches of dunes (there is a fleet of bikes aboard). Beach comb endless beaches studded with sand dollars. And revel in the vastness and serenity as you view the many species of birds in this world-renowned region.
