We all enjoy traveling to places, especially to areas with turquoise-blue oceans and sea creatures. The beauty of the sea can’t even be expressed in words. A group of tourists recently went on a vacation to enjoy the ocean views. They went to the San Ignacio Lagoon which is situated in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. This small group of tourists observed a large mass moving underneath their boat when they went on a sightseeing boat ride. They were rather scared and nervous at first because they weren’t able to identify what the large mass was. It turned out to be a mother whale who was just trying to have a friendly interaction with the humans.
She didn’t come to visit the tourists alone, instead, she came along with her baby calf. The mother whale even lifted the calf out of the water to showcase the baby. Luckily for these tourists, they were even able to touch both the mother and baby whale. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them and they were overjoyed. During the winter season every year, hundreds of gray whales travel 6,000 miles away from their feeding grounds in Alaska. In the months of January and April, these creatures come to the San Ignacio Lagoon to mate and give birth. They prefer this exact location because of the shallow waters there.
If you visit this area you might be able to hear the ‘oofft’ noise of whales exhaling out of their blowholes whenever they come to the ocean surface. This sound is known to be the most nurturing and gentle sound in the world. Apparently, this area is famous for whale watching because there are a large number of whales there. Local authorities have taken necessary actions to maintain the balance between tourism and conservation. They have put their efforts into eliminating many major threats to the whales in the Lagoon. Whale watching guides also play a vital role in preserving whales and putting an end to whale hunting.
