Sardine Run at its best!

Awesome last day in Magdalena Bay, Mexican Sardine run at its best.
The beginning of the trip wasn’t the best, Hurricane Norma ravaged the south of the peninsula and at the same time turned animal behavior upside down… Anyway, our guests and the crew had an amazing attitude and in the end, they got what they deserved, the best day of the season so far. Hundreds of Mahi Mahi hitting on the bait balls, together with dozens of Sea Lions swirling around the sardines, some Striped Marlins striking into the bait balls and all together decimating the sardine balls until the very last fish… We climb the panga again and run to the next bait ball, which is marked by Frigate Birds, the water under those majestic birds seems to boil and they strike this bubbling surface with their beak to fish sardines out, Those bait balls are really under attack and you feel on a mission, the speed of the activity is crazy but you get into that hunting mode and enjoy the adrenalin pumping through your veins. The best was when a Bryde Whale began to hit on the bait… WTF is going on here!!! It was everything you were expecting and more.
Adrenalin-loaded action, fast boats, submerged with rare wildlife, and the semi virginity of the Baja California Sur all around you… what else can you ask for? A Jacuzzi and a Margarita, you say we have all that onboard the Nautilus Belle Amie and more.
If you want to check it out, we have a ticket for you.
