Sailing in La Paz, Mexico, for the purposes of whale watching is most popular between the months of January and March. During these months about 4000 grey whales make their way from the Bering Straight to the coast of Baja, where they birth their calves. La Paz, Mexico, has retained its pristine beauty and remains largely unspoiled. La Paz is spanish for ‘peace’, and for any vacationers looking to find a quiet stretch of cand to enjoy the natural beauty of Mexico, La Paz is an excellent choice.

Sailing conditions

Passages are short, the waters generally clear of hazards, and the anchorages secure with good holding in sand. Basic navigational skills are all that’s required. The winds are usually steady from the northwest at 10 to 15 knots in winter, though they can be stronger when a northerly frontal system blows through. In summer, the winds shift to the southeast and weaken. The exception is when the Coromuel winds blow from the southwest at night from early spring through late, creating a pleasant cool breeze.

Getting there

Direct flights are available from London to Mexico City from where there are daily connections to La Paz Airport.
