Flying to See Whales in Laguna San Ignacio, Baja

Last weekend, John and I flew south to see the grey whales at Laguna San Ignacio in Baja, California. Our pilot was Charlie Jackson, Sun Labs’ Webmaster. Our Cessna 182 Skylane II was one of four private planes of the Shoreline Flying Club based in Palo Alto, California. We went out on two boats hosted by Antonio’s Ecotours (based in Laguna San Ignacio). These pictures were taken with disposable water sports cameras. I will write more about our amazing trip but first, here are some whale and dolphin photos. Yes! That is my very own hand petting a baby grey whale.
