  Little is known about this magnificent giant, but its migration pattern predictably brings several individuals into the Sea of Cortéz from April through early June, before doing the journey to colder waters up north. Mothers and calves can be seen, showing the confidence of knowing they will not be hurt by humans in this area.
  One of the largest animals on earth, the fin whale is a common visitor to the protected waters of the Sea of Cortéz, never in groups but often in pairs. They do not show a friendly behavior, or seem to be scared of people or boats, but they prefer to be let alone and dive for long periods of time.
  Very common resident of the Sea of Cortéz. Large pods can be seen up and down the gulf feeding on their favorite food, giant squid. Sperm Whales can be found all year round, but are not predictable, as they just follow the food and do not migrate away from this body of water.
  A very popular species due to its habit of jumping out of the water and singing aloud, the humpback whale can be observed during April through June, particularly in the southern tip of the peninsula, in both coasts.
  Baja is reknown worldwide as the waddle of the magnificent gray whale, which migrates south every year from the Behring Sea towards Baja in order to mate and give birth in protected warm waters.
  The vicious name of "killer whale" has nothing to do with this curios and intelligent animal. Several groups are resident into the Sea of Cortéz, roaming the gulf up and down, and feeding mostly on mobula mantas, dolphins and sea lions. With certain frecuency, pods of 4-8 individuals inspect our dive boats and allow divers to get in the water with snorkel gear and watch each other. Thrilling experience, but safe so far.
