Loreto Blue Whales

Loreto is known for their blue whales. Loreto blue whale sighting are most popular in February and March. The Blue whales are usually patrolling off in the deep waters from Chile to California during the other months. The whales come to Loreto to feed, clave and mate. 

The blue whale can reach lengths of 100 feet and is the largest animal that has ever existed. that is right, the blue whale is larger than even the largest dinosaur and you can get close to them in a panga in Loreto. 

The global blue whale population is estimated to be between 10,000–25,000 blue whales, which is roughly only 3–11% of the population size estimated in 1911. Blue whales live for about 70 years. If you see a blue whale in Loreto one year, it may be the same blue whale you see the next year.
