Location: Coming into Todos Santos Bay Ensenada
Weather: Mx Wind NW 8-10 Swell NW 2-3

How do you put into words some of the most majestic back drops above and some of the most untouched raw experience wildlife under the water? You just can’t The shimmer of small bait fish constantly dancing in unison with the beat of of the yellow fin tuna’s rhythm. The tuna skirt just on the outside of the large number of smelt and mackerel harbored under the boat. The dominant tuna dash at a dense pocket of fish changing their colors from deep blue and yellow to a pale white and stripe pattern. The water lights up with the scales of every little fish frantically evading the constant advance of these hulking fish. The tuna come in at light speed, just a blur. The fins of the tuna flare as each make sharp turns to chase down their prey. While all the while the sight of gray and white beasts circle the submersible cages then with three bats of their tails the sharks launch out of the water in full ambush to our baits at the surface. People say it’s a once in a life time experience but we have several guests that keep coming back year after year. It’s something you just have to experience yourself.
