Find out everything you ever wanted to know about gray whales. Information on how to visit their habitat. Learn where you can go to get close to these friendly whales. Maps, photos and descriptions of all the Baja California, Mexico nursery lagoons. More than 120 pages, 100 color photos, maps and illustrations all about these wonderful and amazing whales.

About the Author:

In 1994 Keith began taking whale watchers south from the USA to accompany him on his frequent weekend trips to visit the Gray whales. Information about Keith going to Baja to see whales spread by word of mouth. People wanting to go whale watching would get his phone number from some friend and then contact him. Keith would arrange a meeting point and they would then travel south to camp on the shore of Laguna Ojo de Liebre or in bad weather to stay in a motel in Guerrero Negro. In 1998 Baja Jones Adventures started operation. The Gray Whale Advocate email newsletter started that same year. Since then Keith has driven more than 250,000 miles on Baja Highway #1 and it’s side roads. As a guide and naturalist he has more than 5,000 hours logged sitting or standing in small pangas on the three whale watching lagoons. For many years he held a Mexican Green Card work visa allowing him to work as a whale watching guide. He is perhaps the only foreigner to ever be given this specific work permit by the Mexican Immigration authorities. He has an unabashed passion to be close to the Gray whales, to observe them and to come to understand all that he can about them. He loves to talk about the whales. His life for 20 years has revolved around the migration. Until 2008 Keith still worked in a second career as a construction manager. When New Year arrived each year he would once again find himself begging some boss for a 90 day leave of absence. All too frequently he was forced to quit another high paying job. This willingness to just up and leave a good job time after time gave him a bit of a reputation as being unable to stick with something. It was difficult to explain in a job interview why he had left the last 4 positions after only 8 or 9 months. But to Keith those were just jobs and for him meaningless except to help support him between gray whale migrations. The Gray whales and his involvement with them are what give meaning to his life.
