Jumping mobula ray in La Paz
Snorkeling with Mobula Rays in Mexico (guided by a Marine Biologist)
Join a marine biologist to seek and swim with schools of mobula rays! If you are lucky you can even spot dolphins and orcas; and blue whales and humpback whales if you are really lucky! Book this lifetime adventure!
How about seeing hundreds of mobula rays?! It is possible in Baja California Sur! Munk's devil rays (Mobula Munkiana), how they are officially called are often all over the place (well water actually).
For lunch you will stop at a beautiful island called Isla Cerralvo, AKA Jacques Cousteau Island. During this trip you will also search for dolphins and orcas - no guarantee of course. Sometimes you can even see blue whales and humpback whales!
