    Every year tens of thousands of mobula rays visit the coastlines of the Sea of Cortez in Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. The congregations of rays are one of the most incredible natural spectacles on our planet – and one of the largest in the world, too. This event is so stunning that it’s been featured on BBC’s “Blue Planet” and in numerous National Geographic documentaries. Imagine diving down into a school of thousands of these beautiful creatures as they soar through the ocean, witnessing their acrobatics as they leap from the water by the hundreds. Or picture snorkeling above the massive schools as they glide effortlessly through the water in unison. This is Mexico’s annual mobula ray aggregation and there is nothing else like it on earth.

    For 2020, we’re offering a more intimate experience with double the time to explore this breathtaking natural wonder. We’re offering an exclusive series of 8-day mobula ray trips, partnering with Dive Ninja Expeditions and featuring extraordinary pro photographer and expedition leader Jay Clue.

    Prepare for front-row seats to your own wildlife documentary. Our special mobula ray aggregation expeditions not only put you right in the heart of the action, but also let you participate in important research being done on these amazing creatures. You’ll contribute to mobula research and survey their activities alongside one of the top mobula ray experts in the world, Marta Palacios. This is your chance to help make a difference and protect our oceans while bearing witness to one of the most incredible natural wonders on earth.

    Our expeditions will begin in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico. After check-in, you’ll be transferred in our air-conditioned transport van to your accommodation in a place so special we can only call it our ‘secret ninja spot.’ Jay Clue, Nadia Aly and team have spent countless hours scouting and exploring the length of Baja to find the best place to experience these gigantic schools. Last season we began running pilot trips there to test our findings and were blown away at the action! Now it’s your chance to see it with your own eyes, so get ready for the experience of a lifetime.

    Your home for the week is a picturesque, private beachfront property with spectacular views and all the comforts of home— air-conditioning, WiFi, American satellite TV, patios with lounge chairs & hammocks to unwind while taking in the ocean breeze, and so much more. The gorgeous Sea of Cortez is only a few steps across a white-sand beach from your door.  And best of all, it’s located on the edge of a small fishing town, far away from the hordes of tourists, creating a unique experience to really enjoy the natural beauty of Baja. Once everyone is settled in we’ll meet for our first presentations then indulge in our first chef-prepared dinner of the trip.

    The next morning, as the warm sun rises over Jacques Cousteau Island, we’ll head out for our first in-water experience. Each trip will have an expert ‘Team Ninja’ guide, working alongside our guests to teach you about the beautiful Sea of Cortez and help keep everyone safe and enjoying themselves. After a few hours of swimming, snorkeling and freediving, we’ll break for lunch. The afternoon offers more chances to get in the water with the jaw-dropping schools of mobula rays. On the next few days we’ll be back at it again and again. On the final day of the trip we’ll head back to the Ninja HQ in Cabo San Lucas after breakfast.

    While out on the ocean we’ll also be looking for sea lions, giant devil rays, whales, mantas, pods of dolphins, and many more incredible animals that call these waters home. Our days will be full as we search for different schools and discover this incredible natural spectacle. Our captains for this trip are local ex-fisherman who have transitioned to working purely in marine research and eco-tourism. These ninjas are living proof of the amazing things eco-tourism can accomplish. They have developed an unrivaled passion for the ocean and know the waters around this area intimately.

    The nearest airport is Los Cabos International Airport (airport code SJD).  Los Cabos International is also known as San Jose del Cabo International Airport by some airlines.
