If you would like to extend your time in Los Cabos, there are numerous options to add on local diving and activities.
A great option would be to take a freediving course prior to the trip so that you are comfortable, confident, and relaxed for your encounters with the mobula rays.
Contact Dive Ninjas Expeditions to enquire about add-on packages to your workshop.

Our meeting point for this expedition will be Dive Ninja Expeditions HQ in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. From here you will be transferred to our accommodation and base camp.
If you need assistance arranging a transfer from the airport to the meeting point at Dive Ninja Expeditions HQ please contact the team at Dive Ninjas Expeditions.
The nearest airport is Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), which is serviced daily with domestic and international flights. If transiting through the US please check in advance to see if you will need a US Transit Visa.
We cannot delay or change a workshop in the event of travel disruptions that cause a participant to arrive late.
If this happens, participants are responsible for arranging their own transport to catch up with the group - which can be a very costly expense. In addition, no refunds will be made for any time missed on a workshop due to the late arrival by the participant.
For this reason, we highly recommend you arrive at least the day before your workshop is scheduled to start.
At the very least, you will be more refreshed and relaxed for the start of your adventure.
We know that plans can change, and unforeseen circumstances can happen.
You need to advise us in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you need to cancel your workshop. Your cancellation is not official until you have received a return email confirmation acknowledging your cancellation.
If you cancel and we can fill your spot on the workshop, you will receive a full refund minus a $300 USD fee.
If you cancel and the workshop does not fill, cancellation requests and refunds will be processed according to the following:
*Please note that some of our workshops with partner companies/third parties may have non-refundable deposits, which will not be refunded or credited to you.
Please note that this workshop is NOT scuba-diving based.
Most of the action takes place near the surface so there is no scuba equipment involved.
In addition, we have learned through experience that encounters with the mobula rays are much more intimate and natural without heavy scuba gear and bubbles.
You do not need to be scuba certified or freediving certified to join this workshop however you do need to know how to swim and be comfortable swimming in the ocean.
If you would like to extend your trip and add-on scuba diving days to your workshop, please contact the team at Dive Ninjas Expeditions.
If you are traveling with a partner/friend who is interested in joining you on this workshop but they are NOT a photographer, we may be able to accommodate them. In some instances, this may be at a reduced price.
Please note that this will be at the discretion of Viking International Phototours – contact us at email@example.com for information.
Your companion would need to understand that this is a photography workshop and not a typical ‘tourist’ tour – long hours will be spent photographing locations outdoors rather than visiting attractions.
If you are interested in this workshop but would prefer a private experience or to attend with your own group of people, we can arrange that for you – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Please refer to the Terms and Conditions.
