Striped Marlin Expedition in Bahía Magdalena

Striped Marlin Run Expedition

Striped Marlin Expedition in Bahía Magdalena

3 Ocean Safari days looking for Sardine Bait Balls, Striped Marlins, Whales and much more

The Marlin Run is one of those underwater spectacles that leave any nature lover completely astonished. It’s a natural occurring, authentic, and exclusive event that has gained popularity amongst the most intrepid adventurers.

It has it all. We will swim and marvel at giant bait balls as they are harrased by striped marlins, sea lions, and seabirds as they hungrily gather to feed on the feast. This show is sometimes complemented by humpback whales and giant mobula schools, making this adventure and unforgettable one.


We will spend 3 days looking for sardine bait balls, striped marlins, humpback whales, dolphins, mobula rays, sharks, and other marine life that seasonally shows up to this underwater spectacle. In this adventure, everything is possible! Please consider that this adventure is fit for the most adventurous guests, since it includes 3 full days on a panga boat (6-8 hours), navigating in the ocean, and jumping into and out of the water as we encounter marine life. What we can say is that it is definitely worth it!

On the first day we will pick you up in the morning in Cabo or La Paz to start the trip to the Port of San Carlos. We will arrive at the hotel at sunset, with plenty of time to relax, unpack, receive the activity briefing, and have dinner at the hotel's restaurant. 

The next 3 days we will sail into the depths of the Pacific Ocean to swim with marlins, sardine bait balls, schools of mobula rays, whales, killer whales and many more species, and stay at an exclusive camp. Return to Cabo or La Paz is planned after the end of the third day of safari.
