      About this trip

      Arrive in the afternoon at SJD Cabo and embark on an extraordinary adventure in Baja, Mexico! The Sea of Cortez proudly houses resident mobula rays and orcas throughout the year, with the peak excitement occurring from May to the end of July when the mobulas gather in massive schools.


      During the months of May and June, we have the opportunity to witness the massive schools of aggregating mobula rays,  orcas, blue whales, fin whales, sperm whales, humpback whales, sea lions, massive pods of dolphins, manta rays, and more.

      By the Law

      We work with local permitted captains in La Ventana.

      During the months of May and June, we have the opportunity to witness the massive schools of aggregating mobula rays,  orcas, blue whales, fin whales, sperm whales, humpback whales, sea lions, massive pods of dolphins, manta rays, and more. We have an almost 100% success rate of seeing schooling mobulas.


      In July, while the mobula rays have mostly left the area, we still encounter a orca, blue whales, fin whales, sperm whales, giant manta rays, sea lions, and other remarkable marine species!


      On average, we spot orcas approximately 15-20 times per month during May, June, and July, although not consecutively.

      This was the trip of a lifetime in terms of sea life and Nadia was a delightful travel guide. This type of eco-tourism helps preserve these magical ocean creatures for the future as local people learn they can make a living without killing and visitors fall in love with the Mobula Rays, Orcas, Dolphins, Sea Lions, Whale Sharks and other whales then become inspired to protect them. I was injured on the trip so have mixed feelings about the way safety was handled jumping off the boat. Hopefully they will remind jumpers to be cautious not to jump on other guests.

      Spectacular trip! We were lucky enough to swim with orcas, massive whale sharks, blue whales, mobulas, sea lions, and mantas. This blue water safari did not disappoint. The diversity of animals we encountered made this trip so special for me. Thank you, Nadia and Armando, for everything!

      My heart is overflowing with gratitude as I write this review to thank Nadia and her exceptional team for making my lifelong dream of swimming with orca and blue whales a reality. Nadia, your meticulous planning and attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Every aspect of this adventure was flawlessly executed, ensuring a seamless and unforgettable experience. The warmth and professionalism of your team made me feel welcome and at ease from the very beginning. Their passion and knowledge about marine life were truly inspiring, and their dedication to creating a magical experience for each guest was evident in every interaction. The house on the water was nothing short of spectacular. Nestled in the serene and stunning surroundings of Baja, it provided the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, clearly the best house in the area. Waking up to the gentle sounds of the waves and the breathtaking views of the ocean was a dream come true in itself. I have already signed up for 2025!

      We had such an amazing experience in Dominica! Never in my life did I think swimming with sperm whales would be so amazing! We were lucky to swim with whales 4 of our 6 days, and those days did not disappoint! The days we did not find whales, we checked out a local snorkel spot called Champagne reef and it was fantastic. The Fort Young hotel was perfect, and located right on the water, our deck was amazing, offering us a jaw dropping view of the ocean!! Captain Curt answered all our questions, and educated us about the sperm whales. Huge thank you to Nadia for the top notch organization! We can't wait to book another tour!

      I recently had the most extraordinary experience of my life in Dominica, where I embarked on an awe-inspiring journey to swim with sperm whales. From the very beginning, the trip was seamless, thanks to the exceptional communication and coordination by Nadia. Nadia's attention to detail and prompt responses ensured that every aspect of my pre-travel arrangements was taken care of with precision. Her expertise and dedication set the stage for what would turn out to be an unforgettable adventure. Upon arriving in Dominica, I was taken to the stunning Fort Young Hotel, a true gem nestled right on the water's edge. The location was not only breathtaking but also convenient, allowing me to wake up to the soothing sounds of the ocean every morning. The hotel's impeccable service and comfortable accommodations made my stay all the more enjoyable. I can confidently say that Fort Young Hotel exceeded my expectations, providing the perfect base for my whale-watching escapade. I loved working out at the Gym that looks right over the ocean, amazing! Now, let me express my utmost admiration for Captain Curt, the mastermind behind our incredible whale-swimming expeditions. Captain Curt's experience and skill were evident from the moment we set sail. His passion for the sperm whales and dedication to providing a safe yet thrilling experience made him stand out as the best captain I've ever had the pleasure of whale swimming with! But the magic didn't end there. Our guide, Greg, was a true maestro when it came to locating sperm whales in the water. Thanks to his and Curts expertise, we were able to encounter sperm whales almost every day, creating memories that will last a lifetime. In conclusion, my time in Dominica was nothing short of magical, and I owe it to the incredible team that made it all possible. Nadia's pre-travel communication, the enchanting Fort Young Hotel, Captain Curt's exceptional skills, and Greg's insightful guidance came together to create an adventure that exceeded my wildest dreams. If swimming with sperm whales is on your bucket list, look no further than Dominica and the tours with SDL Expeditoins– an experience that will leave you in awe and gratitude for the beauty of our planet's marine life.
