Location: Northern Cerralvo Channel

Today we are in the Northern Cerralvo Channel for the first day of our orca and mobula ray expedition. We had a comfortable overnight voyage from Cabo San Lucas. We arrived at our destination at 0900. We started off the morning at Carpenter Rock. We anchored in between the rock and the beach and did our safety and boat briefings and got the RHIB away for a warmup of snorkeling/freediving.
Guests ended up in the water with a big pod of bottlenose dolphins and then we spotted a humpback whale. We even caught a glimpse of a tail in the water but that was all. Afterwards, we headed across the channel to find a more sheltered area and we are now arriving at the San Lorenzo Channel. This is where we’ll anchor and begin our search for the mobula rays and orcas, with help from our airplane support.
