Gray Whales 2016

The trip to Antonio’s Whale Camp in mid March 2016: In a word, amazing!! Enjoy the photos! Front left is Moises. He took the photo of me petting the mama whale. Daniel is our guide and panga driver. I’m on the left behind Moises in the brown hat!!

San Ignacio Lagoon is a protected area. Gray whales here are treated with respect and reverence.

Here’s me reaching out to the baby gray whale, hoping she will swim over to greet me.

The big mama whale rolls over on her side so I can touch her. Gray whales like having their gums rubbed! But they have to open their mouths for a human to do that!
