‘La bufadora’ is the only sea geyser in North America and one of the largest in the world.
This phenomenon is caused by the breaking of the waves against a sea cave located at the bottom of the cliff, creating a spout, every minute or so, that reaches a height of up to 66 feet above sea level depending on the strength of the waves.
According to the legend, hundreds of years ago, in one of the gray whale migrations, from Alaska to Baja California, a baby calf got away from the group to nose around in the coast. While wandering around, got stuck between the rocks and, asking for help, threw a stream of water, then a bigger one, and so on. Meanwhile, the loud noise are its cries. Further on in time, this baby whale became rock, merging with the rocks of the place.
This natural attraction is located 22 miles south from the city of Ensenada and is visited by people from all over the world.
