About this trip

Located 10 miles off-shore from Los Cabos, Gordo Banks rises up from the ocean floor creating a plateau at about 110-150 feet (33-45m) underwater. This is a great site for pelagic species! Schools of jacks, tuna, pelagic sting rays, mantas, mobulas and even schools of silky sharks and hammerheads can often be seen. During the whale season we can often see humpbacks diving down. The depth and location of this dive site require that you are an experienced diver and comfortable diving in blue water. If you are unsure if you have enough experience, please give us a shout before booking.  Includes snacks & drinks, 2 tanks of EANX 28 (Nitrox), tanks, weights, and Team Ninja guide.

I had booked 2-dive excision for the corridor. Unfortunately, conditions were not favorable. We dove the marine park instead. Our guide, Victoria, made sure everyone was in good spirits and enjoyed their dives. Next time I’m in Cabo I would use this shop again.

We had a great time and saw so many different animal species. I love Dive Ninja's approach to keeping the animals safe. The accomodations and food were excellent as well. Sara was an exceptionally helpful person in helping us to make arrangements and making sure we had our trip set!

This was an amazing experience! Our guide Victoria was great, the food was delicious and we loved the accomodation at the beach front. Seeing the mobulas rays so close (and vortex feeding) was one of the best moments in life. This unique conservation project should be supported by everyone who cares about nature and marine life.

Magical, flawless experience, booking 2 more trips I was on the May 17-24, 2024 Mobula Ray Expedition. I have waited until now, a month later, to write a review, thinking the euphoria might have subsided. It has not. This trip gave me exactly what I hoped for, reassurance that despite so much damage by humans, nature will find a way. When I saw the aggregation of the mobula rays (Mobula munkiana) for the first time I was so moved I cried. Despite snotting up my mask, it was definitely a peak experience in my longish life of 72 years. It was a blessing in disguise that my camera failed and I was able to be fully present to the experience. That was only the first day, and we swam with the same hundreds of rays for a couple of hours. On the following days we snorkeled with a small group of the much larger Mobula mobular, (which I swear were showing off for us), more huge aggregations of munkiana, and sea lions. No company can guarantee that you WILL see what you COULD see, but the expertise and intuition of our wonderful wise-beyond-her-years guide, Victoria, and our captain resulted in one magical experience after another. I really cannot say enough about the quality of an expedition with Dive Ninjas. There is not one single suggestion I could make on how any aspect of this could have been improved. Short list of highlights: 1. Dive Ninjas are serious and knowledgeable about conservation and sustainability 2. Max group size is six and they will still do the trip if only 4 3. I felt very "cared for", attended to and safe throughout the expedition, on or off the water. 4. Though I was the only vegan on the trip, the wonderful cooks meticulously cooked separately and deliciously for me. 5. There is very much an egalitarian team atmosphere among the staff. 6. The accommodations are fabulous villas, very private, the whole location rented by Dive Ninjas for their expeditions. I have such complete trust in Dive Ninjas to create a memorable experience, I am already in the process of booking two more expeditions. Bring a GoPro
