The Gray whales start arriving middle of Dec to breed and give birth. You could pass by Puerto Lopez Mateos which is South of Loreto as you go across to the west coast on the way to La Paz and see if any boats are going out. It is amazing to see these massive whales alongside your boat. At times you can reach down and touch them, Baja is one of the only places in the world that you can do this. San Ignacio and Puerto Lopez Mateos are two of the best places to see them. I went to both places earlier this year and got to scratch the backs of whales. The season runs Mid Dec through Mid April. If you don't catch them on the way down catch them on the way back it is an amazing experience.
