6/11 El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve, Mexico

Controlled access to the shallow, well-protected Laguna San Ignacio in El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve (Mexico’s largest protected area) has ensured the area is one of the best places in the world to see North Pacific grey whale. Other marine mammals you may encounter include bottlenose dolphins, harbour seals, California sea lions, northern elephant seals and turtles. Searcher Natural History Tours runs a 12-day whale-watching boat trip to Baja California, also incorporating Laguna San Ignacio, from £3,374, which includes the Mexican Conservation Passport to access Natural Protected Areas.
