Guide ReportFeb. 1-5, 2014San Ignacio Lagoon
By Jim Dorsey
On the February 1-5 trip to Campo Cortez we made contact with a large female on the second morning out. She was not just friendly but treated our boat as a large toy, shoving us around and rubbing on our keel. She opened her j mouth and we got a good look at her baleen and everyone on my boat got to pet her.
She stayed with us for about an hour and then went back and forth from our panga to another, always returning for more fun.
On days like this it only takes one friendly whale to make the entire trip.
