School of Mobula Ray in the Sea Of Cortez - Mexico

Cerralvo Island – Open Ocean Safari | Reef Snorkeling

  • Mobula Ray - Cerralvo Island
  • April - October
  • Comfortable swimmer

 Looking for ANY pelagic wildlife including the infamos Mobula Rays and More!

Cerralvo Island in the fishing village of La Ventana is home to an abundance of rich pelagic life. As well as all types of whales, wild dolphins, orcas and more, a spectacular display of nature happens every year in April – June. Huge groups of pygmy devil ray – known as Mobula Munkiana (cousin of the manta ray) congregate in their hundreds of thousands! They swim near the surface and we can cruise along with them and respectfully enjoy their beauty. Summer and Autumn is also a GREAT time to visit the area. The waters surrounding the Island are remote and full of whales, orca, rays, dolphins and more! The shallow reefs are beautiful to visit when the big life is hiding! We will partake in a wildlife tour to find all kinds of life and spring promises a few mobula ray encounters thrown in the mix! Not coming to Baja in spring? Check out our Summer mobula ray trips in Cabo!

Not recomended to book Dec – March because of wind.

The Snorkeling tour was amazing! One of the best experiences of my life. Would definitely recommend it!

Private guided snorkeling with Felipe!

What an amazing experience! When I booked it was quick & easy. We arrived & Felipe got us suited way before our time to set out. He took us to a safe location that he knew we would see lots of wildlife.…

Great snorkel trip in Cabo

Great snorkeling trip with Antonio and Julian. Went to the Corridor and Pelican Rock. Conditions in some areas of the Corridor were a bit rough and we appreciated Antonio’s recommendations as to where the best place would be to snorkel. He took…

Personalized service is their hallmark and it shows.

Personalized service is their hallmark and it shows. The guides are fantastic and show you great dives. If you are diving in Cabo you can stop looking and book with Cabo Private Guide.

Discover the Mobula ray aggregation in Baja California

The mobula ray aggregation is so spectacular it has been documented by National Geographic and the BBC Blue Planet. Huge fevers of Mobula Munkiana devil ray peak in number in this part of The Sea of Cortez in late April and May. The nearby nursery grounds of Espiritu Santo Island in La Paz mean they travel here first before heading down to San Lucas in June and July. Until now, Cabo Private Guide has been enjoying their late-summer encounter with mobula from Cabo San Lucas with guests for a number of years.

Swim with thousands of Mobula Rays at Cerralvo Island

As a bespoke boutique adventure snorkeling company, we have now decided to offer this bucket-list open-ocean day safari to Jacques Cousteau Island (Cerralvo Island); a more secluded area of Baja Sur where you can spend a day away from busy Cabo enjoying this unique and stunning wildlife encounter. And it’s not just the mobula rays! It’s possible to also see Orcas, sperm whales, whale sharks and swim with wild dolphins.
