We prepare our lunches with fresh in season home-grown grown organic produce, local cheeses and meats. Your lunch is prepared fresh a few hours before your excursion and is served in reusable containers. Special diets are accommodated on request, and we’ve got fabulous vegetarian, vegan, low fat, low/no sugar recipes. We adhere to a strict recycle and waste avoidance policy.
Trips are eight hours in duration and start between 06:00 – 07:00 a.m. (weather permitting). We will stay out longer if you’d like and will always fuel up accordingly. Believe it or not time goes by so fast that soon you’ll realize you’ve already been out 8 hours or more. Your guide, Capt. Francisco is properly trained insured and authorized by federal and park authorities, and bilingual. Capt. Francisco’s Twitter account is @loretobluewhale and his Instagram account is @bluewhalecaptain
No deposit is required. We send excursions as long as the weather cooperates. Payment is made after services are rendered or just before boarding the boat. When the blue whales are south of Loreto and if you are staying at Villas Palmar, you may be dropped off on the shoreline in front of the resort at the end of your trip (weather permitting). This allows you to be able to spend more time with the whales. If staying in town the excursion will begin and end at the marina in Loreto. If staying in Loretp Bay/Nopolo we can arrange excursions from the laguna.
Call us when you arrive in Loreto and we will help you coordinate your excursion.
