The arrival of the Blue Giant to the waters of the Sea of Cortez
The mammal arrives at the waters of the Bahia de Loreto National Park in Baja California Sur, between January and March to feed, mate and give birth to their calves. The blue whale is included in the category of species "subject to special protection", which allows responsible observation.
This species can measure between 24 and 27 meters and has an average weight between 100 and 120 tons. However, specimens up to 33.5 m in length and 190 tons in weight have been registered. The Gulf of California is a privileged place where you can observe 38% of the cetacean species in the world and 70% of the marine mammals registered in Mexico. This has allowed that, with the measures of necessary conservation, national and international tourists can realize activities of recreational observation and at the same time take with himself memorable experiences of the majestic Blue Giant in the Sea of Cortez.
