As the third-largest city in Baja California, Ensenada, a coastal city in Mexico, is locally referred to as La Cenicienta del Pacifico, “The Cinderella of the Pacific.” If visiting during the end of December through the end of March, witness a spectacular phenomenon as the gray whales of the Bering and Chukchi seas migrate to the offshore waters of Ensenada for a limited time. Our whale watching excursion will allow you to see these magnificent creatures that were once on the brink of extinction. If craving a glass of wine, head to the countryside in the northeastern region of Ensenada. This area serves as the grounds for several wineries, due in part to the original Russian immigrants who planted the vineyards back in the early 1900s. With its whale watching excursions and wineries, it’s no wonder why Ensenada has emerged as a popular cruise ship destination.
