A couple of tourist observe the 40 tons whale pass under the boat. 

   From that moment we move into the lagoon to a very close encounter with this cetacean, who are able to steal our breath just by seeing his enormuous body moving just below surface the clear water, characteristic of this lagoon. It is common of gray whales and their calves to swim up thru the water to reach surface and look at human visitors with curiosity, who can experience a great gesture of friendship, allowing them to almost lay their hand on the back of these giant mammal, who rarely flinch for it.


   A partir de ese momento esperamos tener un encuentro muy cercano con este cetáceo capaz de robar nuestro aliento con solo ver su enorme cuerpo moverse apenas por debajo del agua cristalina, característica de esta laguna. Es común que las ballenas y sus ballenatos saquen su cabeza del agua mirando curiosas a los visitantes terrestres, quienes pueden experimentar un gran gesto de amistad al poder casi posar su mano sobre el lomo de estas, quienes muy rara vez se inmutan por ello.
