Don't miss a chance to experience the Striped Marlin Hunting in the Sardine Run, Magdalena Bay , Baja Mexico - I expect this to be the only time to see Mag Bay without the ever growing crowds (and the tourism operators there sorely need our support!) 

Baja is open and and the Sardines and Marlin will soon arrive...
Mexico has put in place very thorough measures to keep all guests safe and we have secured agreements to rebook guests for 2021 should travel bans make it impossible to get there.

The Striped Marlin at Magdalena Bay have been hot! Catch the action plus  discover excellent diving in La Paz and Cabo Pulmo National Park.

A real marine adventure for photographers as we chase bait balls with striped marlin and other predators: we will be in the action with fast and elusive predators for 4 full days. Next we dive with sharks, dive a pristine reef with a chance for humpbacks, and join a moonlight ballet with mobula rays.

Trip Overview:

The adventure starts in Port San Carlos where Magdalena Bay is host to the largest striped marlin migration in the world. We will be on our own boat from 7am to 4pm looking for sea birds who will point us to the epic hunting action going on underwater. The marlins hunt the sardines as do the sharks and seals. Under the surface will be a frenzy of action as marlin hunt in cooperation containing and maneuvering the bait balls. One by one they attack the sardines and take their meal. We stay at an upscale hotel outside of Port San Carlos.

After, we transfer to La Paz where we do a dive unique to La Paz: a night dive with Mobula Rays. Plankton are drawn like a magnet to our lights and schools of rays come swooping in to dive down to feed in the sand. It is non-stop swirling action at night. We also dive with sea lions; a dive full of fast interaction with these curious and humorous animals.

Our last days are in Cabo Pulmo National Park where protected marine habitat and pristine coral draws an enormous amount of tropical fish, seals, turtles, and more. Large schools of jacks are an awesome sight as the formation pulses and morphs before us. We do dives specifically for bull sharks who lurk and patrol on the scattered remains of shipwrecks.
