The only month to make this tour happen is MARCH and this is mainly because of the short migration period of the Blue Whales. All the other animals stick around Baja California Sur for over 4 months, this is the reason why we choose the 15th of March as it is when the chances are the highest to encounter all the species listed on this tour.
