Still having a whale of time in Puerto Peñasco! The whales (mostly fin and humpback) are still skirting near our shores, much to the delight of local tour companies, residents, and visitors alike. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to catch some tail during the 2020 whale-watching season, which officially is through April 1st though the whales tend to take their leave about mid-March. In the meantime, warm up your engines and let’s run down the weekend!
