Join us on this 5 day Mobula Ray Expedition! Every year, tens of thousands of Mobula Rays come to visit Baja California from May to July. The largest schools in the World can be found here in Baja, and it’s one of nature’s most spectacular events. Mobulas are famous for their high jumps and acrobatics in the air. Freediving with hundreds or thousands of them is a unique experience that you can’t miss.
If you want to increase your chances of seeing and having more unexpected but amazing interactions underwater, the more days you spend the better your chances. That’s why we have created this Mobula Ray Expedition. In total 5 days, 3 longer days in the water, we’ll maximize our time out and go to our secrets spots where we have seen bigger aggregations of thousands of Mobulas. While mobulas are the main species, we often see dolphins, turtles, sometimes sharks, and if you’re in luck, even orcas.
Late April to Early July
For private expeditions it is possible to arrange schedule, dates and add any other extra you would like. Send us an email on your preferences and we’ll arrange all the details to make a perfect tailor made expedition for you!
Freefall Academy will welcome you at a glamping in the desert. Get ready to be surrounded by picturesque cactus and take a dip in the jacuzzi to relax at night. The hotel has a restaurant where we will eat breakfast and dinner, making logistics much easier. Watch the sky full of stars at night and sleep with the sounds of the desert.
The price of the expedition includes a shared double occupancy room (2 separate beds). If you’d like your private room it may be added with additional price, please contact us.
Day 3 & 4
You need to be able to know how to swim and snorkel. There is no need for scuba diving certification or freediving certification.
It varies according to the school of mobulas. Sometimes they swim very slow and we barely have to move. Other times they go faster and we need to swim a little faster. However if you ever get tired your guide will help you. At any time you want you can call the captain to come pick you up to rest on the boat. Many people actually like to stay on the boat to take topside pictures of mobula ray acrobatics! Exertion level: moderate to medium.
It is not necessary. However if you’d like to be better prepared, it can be arranged. Please contact us to schedule a course.
On our 2021 mobula day expeditions, we had a 100% sighting success. We can’t guarantee that you will see them, because everything is up to mother nature, but let’s just say it it very likely we’ll see them.
