Flying Rays - Bahia Agua Verde to San Evaristo

We sailed, mainly using the gennaker (good thing we had it repaired in Guaymas!), to Punto Los Gatos (18 nm) and on to San Evaristo (28 nm). Along the way, we saw many jumping, or flying, Mobula Rays.
From a distance, it looks like a very large fish has jumped out of the water, but when they are closer you can see they are rays about 5 feet across. They jump several times in a row, gaining height and distance each time, and often in groups. You can see them fly.
