I just made my reservations for another Baja gray whale encounter trip leaving Orange County February 15, 2009, and staying overnight at Guerrero Negro. I will be driving to San Ignacio the next day, staying there the nights of February 16 -18, leaving for San Quintin on the 19th, and traveling home on the 20th. I will be driving out to the whale lagoon from San Ignacio February 17 & 18 doing two boat trips per day. I am not organizing the trip next year because it has been very frustrating in the past, but I welcome any of you that want to come along for the fun and adventure. I am booked at the Desert Inns chain which are the best accommodations in Baja, but there are very few rooms remaining and you need to make reservations ASAP if you want to go. Their phone number is 1-800-262-4500 for reservations, and my reservation number is 77759 for reference. Contact me if you have any questions.
