Every fall, the waters outside of Magdalena Bay offer the perfect conditions for massive schools of sardine in the cobalt blue shallow ocean water.
The surrounding waters teem with life with bait balls and predators from seabirds to blue and mako sharks, sea lions, whales, dolphin and the oceans fastest fish, the striped marlin (Kajikia audax). Marlin can swim as fast as 50 mph (80 kmh) and it’s the thrill of lifetime to be in the water next to a bait ball with marlin whizzing past you, dorsal fins full erect. Extra bonus is the hundred or more turtles often seen on the surface.
This is an unforgettable experience for snorkelers, divers and free-divers.
Mag Bay is also a gorgeous place to visit just for the pristine beauty, mangroves and giant sand dunes of the outer islands. We work closely with a group of local panga drivers who know these waters like the back of their hands.
This is a deeply personal experience with maximum five to six guests per panga guided by a guide and a local captain. This experience is for everyone, and the tour is completly in snorkeling /freediving.
