Mobula rays are common in Baja California during their breeding season between mid-May and July. During this time, you can find massive schools of these beautiful diamond-shaped creatures just off San Lucas Marina. Mobula rays are easy to spot due to their unusual mating behavior—jumping above the sea's surface and thus making extra noise of water splashing. Reverse migration takes place between late November and early January, but the winter season is less impressive.

Cabo San Lucas snorkeling tours running between mid-May and July will take you to the amusing mini-manta rays up close. When your guide notices the first "flying ray," you've reached the destination. Prepare to see an unforgettable spectacle of thousands of Mobulas floating synchronously on your underwater adventure. These aquatic species cause no harm and are safe for humans.
