Orca and Mobula Ray Expedition
Orca and Mobula Expedition in La Ventana
Mobula rays, dolphins, orcas, and whales in La Ventana, BCS
La Ventana, located in Baja California Sur, is a destination that has gained popularity in recent years, not only for its natural beauty and reputation as one of the best places in the world to practice kitesurfing, but also for its rich marine life. From March to June, the crystal-clear waters of the Sea of Cortez are visited by large schools of mobula rays, which in turn attract orcas that come to hunt and feed on them.
Every year, the presence of orcas in La Ventana is becoming more frequent and is an impressive spectacle for visitors. Seeing these animals swim in the crystal-clear waters and hunt in their natural habitat is an unforgettable experience.
But the magic of this place doesn't end there, as these waters are also a transit point for incredible species such as whales, sperm whales, dolphins, and countless marine species. That's why this amazing place is becoming an increasingly recognized destination for nature lovers and adventurous travelers who seek to experience unique and close encounters with nature.
The expeditions focus on finding orcas and mobula rays, however, we cannot guarantee their appearance as they are wild animals that do not have a fixed location and are constantly on the move, so it is not always possible to see them. Nevertheless, encounters with them are becoming more common in this area. In addition to orcas and schools of mobula rays, we are likely to see large pods of dolphins, whales, and even whale sharks.
Lastly, it is worth mentioning that the activity is performed with respect for all wildlife, and we avoid any kind of harassment towards any species.
During the 5 days of activity, we will meet at 8 am at the dock located in front of the "Playa Central" building. Each day we will sail for about 6 hours on board our panga boats actively searching for all the marine life that the ocean offers us and looking for that magical encounter that will remain in our memories forever.
The approximate duration of the activity is from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
