STRIPED MARLINS

Off the coast of the Southern Baja Peninsula in Mexico, a rare event takes place. Thousands of Striped Marlins aggregate in search of their next meal.
This is a rich pelagic area, where you can find different species throughout the year. Rarely visited by divers until a few years ago, this is a good place to see sharks, bait balls, bill fish and other species. Anything can happen in this pelagic playground.

This is a remote area still not very popular to divers with fantastic opportunities for pelagic encounters.
