Reflections of the amazing 2019 Baja expedition with a great bunch of people!

On the 18th of November after assembling in La Paz, Mexico, we began our short journey to Magdalena Bay. While staying in a beautiful villa in the nearby city of Constitucion we were just a short hop away from the pier in San Carlos. Each day we boarded captain Gabino’s boat in search of the elusive bait balls which attract not only the striped marlins, but also sea lions, dolphins, sharks and even whales… Most days the weather was great, but with a fair bit of wind. After all we were out in the Pacific! 

Our first day we got to jump in with quite a few bait balls and we had quality time with sea lions and the famous striped marlins. On another day we spent 3 hours with one massive bait ball in which the marlins and the sea lions were feeding. An amazing sight! One morning the wind was up which gave us the chance to explore the village of Magdalena Bay, the surrounding mangroves and we had a play in the sand dunes. On top of that we even had a chance to photograph pelicans diving for sardines. So much fun! 

After 4 days we moved on to La Paz, but not without stopping on the way to take some fun group photos and admire the views and scenery of Baja California. For sunset we hiked up to a view point overlooking the Sea of Cortez. In La Paz we snorkeled with more than 10 whale sharks most of which were vertical feeding. The conditions didn’t allow the dives with the massive schools of Mobula rays- but that experience can wait for the 2020 expedition!

Later that day we drove to Cabo Pulmo, a beautifully protected national marine park, teeming with fish, bull sharks and sea lions. One of the Cabo Pulmo highlights was diving with the legendary schooling jacks which must number in the tens of thousands!

In all, we had 9 amazing days of some of the best in-water experiences ever! We are looking forward to our November 2020 Baja Adventure. Let me know if you want to be part of this incredible trip next year. There are only a few spots left!
