FULL 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 panga boat, which we will enjoy on the water each day, 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.
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.
