MEXICO BLUE WHALES , Mexico
Only four guests are being invited to join him for a week of filming focusing on blue whales, although we will also likely encounter ocean sunfish (mola mola), hammerhead sharks and other wonderful sea creatures.
If you have ever watched Planet Earth, Blue Planet, Explorers or any other blockbuster nature documentary and wished that you could be there with the film crew….this is your chance!
Whales know no borders, so also bring your passport. While we depart from San Diego, we generally cross into Mexican waters for a large portion of the day.
Each day we will depart early from the marina with our packed lunches and eager hearts! Days are spent comfortably on the boat combing the sea for blue whales. We also have aerial support and a huge network of fisherman and other boats on the sea who report any whale sightings to us.
When we enter the water with the whales, we do so carefully and with the utmost respect for their well-being. We do not chase them or harass them. We put ourselves in position for them to approach us in the water, away from the noise of the boat. We will employ kayaks when it is helpful to do so.
The Blue Whale
The blue whale is the largest animal to ever inhabit the planet. It is more massive than even the largest dinosaur discovered so far. A blue whale’s heart is the size of a car and its tongue weighs as much as an elephant. You will not believe your eyes when you come close to this gentle giant of the sea.
We will be using a comfortable, but quick, 25 foot fly bridge skipjack boat that has an elevated platform for spotting whales and a swim step in the back to deploy swimmers, kayaks and drones for the film work.
Guests will stay at the Island Palms Hotel and Marina in San Diego.
