Bahia Magdalena is one of four bays along the Pacific Coast of the Baja Peninsula where gray whales go each winter to give birth. The calves are raised in the bay until they are able to make the swim all the way to Alaska. Visitors can go out in small Ponga boats and watch the whales. Often a baby, and then its mother, will come up to the boats and seem to enjoy the human interaction. It is also sometimes interesting to see dolphins and whales swimming side by side.
