Registration for WHALES 2023 is now open
And, for the first time, we are offering a combination of segments that you just might be interested in.
Whales 1: January 29 to February 2, four nights, Mulege
Whales 2: February 5 to February 9, four nights, Mulege
In addition, for those that want more of Mexico
A pre or post three-night trip to Punta Pescadero, February 2 to February 5
We have expanded our annual Whales trip to four nights to give people more time to do side trips, visit, saddle up to the bar, do one or two Whales trips and more. Always more to do….
The Pescadero trip is only for people on a Whales trip however, if you wish to only do Pescadero, choose Pescadero only on your registration and we will put you on a standby list.
We will charge a 5% non-refundable standby fee.
If we have space, we will contact you to confirm you are still interested and you will be charged as shown on the form when a room is available.
Yes, just hunker down, read everything, and enjoy the fun and excitement from all that the BBP offers at our 28th year of Whales.

NOTAMS / Alerts
We have made a small change on our Member menu. I have made two choices on that menu, one for BBP Alerts and the second for NOTAMS. The NOTAM choice will take you into the FAA database that covers the US as well as Mexico, Central America, etc. All should review NOTAMS for their destination....
Mexican Liability insurance
The BBP now provides Mexican Liability insurance for aircraft that are not older than 50 years. This is a change as in the past, our underwriter allowed aircraft between 50 and 60 years old to be insured through a special application process.
There are some US underwriters in the US that do cover Mexico's liability requirements. If your aircraft is more than 50 years old, this could be a solution.
