STEVE DE NEEF

Your Guide & Underwater Cinematographer

As a broadcast cinematographer, Steve has filmed for the BBC Natural History Unit series "Shark", multiple shows for National Geographic including the 2017 documentary "Sea of Hope", and worked extensively on the Disney+ and National Geographic series "Secrets Of The Whales" where he filmed multiple firsts including a sperm whale calf nursing from it’s mom. He's an ideal guide to get you close to wildlife for dream encounters, and generally a cool guy to chill with! Steve is always available for tips and tutorials for video or photo shooters. 

SIX DAYS ON THE WATER

Our groups will meet up in Los Cabos and make our way based on recent sightings. Leaving the shores behind, we'll embark on our private boat, which we will enjoy on the water for 6 days, returning to our hotels (or homestays in more remote locations) in the afternoons. A maximum of 5 snorkelers per boat plus guide. Guests should be prepared to spend long days- 8 hours or more - on a boat searching for wildlife. We operate like a documentary shoot - so if we hear word of animals in different locations, we discuss options to relocate midway! It is an intense and wildlife-centric experience for ocean people.  

These trips are created for the adrenaline and wildlife types who are serious about their large animal encounters. Some locations (Magdalena Bay) may be considered rustic and are not luxurious! We are not there for the comfort, but instead, for the abundance of marine life. No matter what anyone says, as divers and experienced explorers we know that in nature there are no guarantees. But the Baja is one of the world's most incredible ocean wildernesses, giving us the best chances for unforgettable adventures on the water.
