About Observation Post #1
Magdalena Bay, Baja California, Mexico

A Gray Whale Nursery: This is the southernmost nursery of Mexico's Baja California coast. The fewest number of gray whale births occur here. At peak, only an estimated 250-500 gray whales are here. This deepwater fishing port is the only area the whales come to which is not part of the biosphere reserve. Magdalena Bay is 180 miles (270 km) south of San Ignacio.
