About Magdalena Bay Expedition
The stripped marlin expedition in Magdalena Bay is an incredible experience where you will get the chance to swim and snorkel with stripped marlins as they hunt the huge sardine bait balls found in the sardine run on the pacific ocean.

Whales, sharks, sea lions, giant mantas, sailfish, and mola mola are just a few of the species that we might encounter while doing this life changing tour that not only gives you the fun and the experience but gets you hands on in conservation efforts to protect this majestic creature that is being threatened by commercial and sport fishing among other anthropogenic factors.

Day 1
Road Trip to Magdalena Bay
The tour starts in the HQ of Nautilus Dive Tech at 7:30am. Our first stop will be in La Paz the state capital of Baja California Sur (approx. 2 hour drive from HQ). We will have breakfast and get ready to drive to San Carlos (approx. 3 hour drive from La Paz), where we can enjoy the spectacular scenery and views of the Baja desert. San Carlos will be the town where we will be staying. The hotel Mar y Arena has easy access and rooms at 25m from the beach. After you have settled in your room we will have dinner at the hotel and then we will invite you to walk around town to get to know the area and the local people.
Day 2, 3 and 4
Activity Time
We will start early and early to meet at the hotel restaurant at 6:30 am for breakfast and prepare to meet in the panga no later than 7:30 am. We will travel between 2-3 hours to reach the snorkeling point. On the way to our point we will see the Island of the Birds, the small town of Magdalena Island, and of course the infinite possibilities of wildlife that we can find including several species of birds, dolphins, whales, sea lions, etc. and also the beautiful landscapes that Magdalena Island offers you.

The exact location of the point is indicated by different species of birds that congregate and fly in large circles around the massive school of sardines to take a dive and try to catch a sardine in the huge bait ball. Meanwhile, sardines are being attacked below the surface by the ocean's fastest fish, the skinned marlin. While snorkeling with the billfish, we have the chance to encounter a host of wildlife, including dolphins, humpback whales, gray whales, blue whales, mako sharks, silky sharks, sea lions, and mola mola, among others. The Baja California peninsula is one of the most important transit areas for a great variety of migratory species in the Pacific Ocean, which offers us a great opportunity to meet these incredible creatures.

The activity lasts between 3 and 4 hours (this may vary depending on personal fitness and weather conditions). Our guide will suggest the proportions of the group in the ocean.

On board we will have snacks, box lunch and drinks that you can enjoy at any time.
When we return we will stay in the clamping of Isla Magdalena, where our things will wait for us to refresh ourselves, we will have dinner at the palapa restaurant in the clamping area.

When we return we will stay in the clamping of Isla Magdalena, where our things will wait for us to relax, we will have dinner at the palapa restaurant in the clamping area.
the next two days we will be arriving in the same area of the island.

Depending on how lucky we are with the marlins, we will decide if the following days we dive or try to go see marlin again.

All our excursions to the Avierto sea we will go 2 boats for safety, separating the group in two, each boat will have its guide on board and captain.

among the dive sites are the colonies of sea lions, sunken boats, a submarine, rocky reefs etc.

At the end of day 4 we will review some of the photographs taken by the group and the guides and it is a good time to discuss the life-changing experiences of the trip and the different behaviors observed in the species we encountered.
Day 5
Back to Cabo
The last day they will take us to the town of sancarlos in the boats with all our things.

We can have breakfast at the local restaurant at 11:00 am back to La Paz where we will have some time to grab a quick bite and walk along the beautiful malecon. After we will drive back to Nautilus Dive Tech.
