Trip Info

Feel the adrenalin as you chase the action! The frigate birds are up ahead picking sardines from a tightly grouped bat ball. Your boat screeches to halt beside the action and you leap into the water and push your head under the waves to witness hundreds of sailfish slamming into the sardines. They thunder by just inches from your body but there is nothing to fear from these skilled, precise hunters. The 3m long sailfish with their long swords slash their way into the sardines. Then, turn back quickly to gobble up any wounded fish that are left behind. It is like a BBC documentary unfolding in front of your eyes! That is the Mexican sardine run. Join us  off the coast of Cancun.

Let Big Fish Expeditions help you plan your next memorable experience.
