Snorkel & Free Dive the Mexican Serengeti
of Striped Marlin Sardine Run
November 20-24, 2019
Often described as the jewel of the Pacific, Magdalena Bay is a renowned coastal region most notably known as the winter breeding ground of the gray whale, but we're here to tell you it's also home to an impressive sardine population--attracting numerous pelagic fish each fall for an epic feeding and hunting experience!
Jump in the water and witness striped marlin, sailfish, mahi, sea lions, or even humpback whales feasting on massive baitballs. On rare occasion one can experience a combination of several species hunting at once!
Located 2.5 hours drive from La Paz, this sleepy fishing village takes you off the beaten path to discover unmatched environmental beauty and biodiversity on land and sea.
Early each morning we’ll board the boat and motor out to the open ocean, into the deep blue waters of the Pacific. While you sit back and enjoy the ride your expert crew is keeping a watchful eye on the surface activity. Observing for bird activity and signs of baitballs bubbling at the surface—this is THE sign we have found the striped marlin and a host of other potential pelagic fishes. This is a true pelagic expedition, where each day onboard could lend a different adventure, species, but all make for an epic experience!
Spots are filling up fast! Reserve your spot today for the November 20-24, 2019 expedition.
