On the Whale-Watch front;

The first survey of Gray Whales in Bahia Magdalena this season cited over 450 leviathans in the lagoon! No number yet from San Ignacio. For some reason over the years, the whales seem to be more "friendly" and approachable in San Ignacio Lagoon...I wonder if it has to do with it being the only undeveloped calving lagoon.

After the discovery of Ojo Liebre Lagoon (Scammons' Lagoon) in 1857 by Capt Scammons, an estimated thousand whales were taken, producing some 25,000 barrels of oil. By 1872, wary whales and their population decline caused the abandonment of large-scale whaling operations in the area.
