While only a short three-hour drive from La Paz. A trip to Magdalena Bay is reminiscent of Cabo thirty years ago. Dusty villages offering a glimpse into the past, a village where the primary focus is not on tourism. Agriculture, shipping, and commercial fishing are the principal sources of income.

Magdalena Bay is as large as San Francisco Bay, with one hundred and thirty two miles of shoreline and countless miles of mangrove lined esteros. Offshore are some of the most famous banks on the West Coast including Thetis, Uncle Sam, The Ridge just to name a few. We are proud to offer Magdalena Bay a virtually untouched destination for the adventuresome fly rodder.

Whales Tale Inn is a one of a kind Bed and Breakfast offering an opportunity for you to experience the "Old Baja" on the thirty-mile long Magdalena Island.

You can stay in one of five rustic cabins with a panoramic view of Santa Maria Bay. Enjoy your own private beach where you can kick back while having your favorite drink.

There is a restaurant offering fresh seafood, as well as authentic Mexican dishes, a generator for electricity, and even fresh water for your shower.

You are only an hour from offshore fishing for billfish, tuna, wahoo and dorado and minutes from inshore fishing either the bay or the esteros for snook, bass and a multitude of other species. You can fish the surf and rocks, view the sea lion rookery, kayak or beachcomb the miles of deserted beaches on foot or an ATV.

Here is your rare opportunity to travel back in time, camp, fish and explore the raw Baja California coast where you'll create memories to last your lifetime.
