February 2013 (Dates TBC)
Maximum of 10 people travelling
This trip combines two of Mexico’s greatest migrations; departing in February the optimum time for photographing both whales and butterflies at close quarters.
Each year Pacific Grey Whales migrate from Alaska to give birth in the calm bays off the coast of Baja California. As the mothers nurse their youngsters prior to their long return journey, they regularly take an interest in the vessels in the bay and often push their calves alongside the pangas.
In contrast high in the mountains of central mainland Mexico, Monarch Butterflies are found in such high densities that they have been known to break tree branches with the sheer weight of their numbers. In the quiet of the forest you can hear the beating of their delicate wings.
You can take the full trip or opt for either the whales or the butterfly migrations.
