Join award-winning photographer, Todd Winner, on a liveaboard trip from Puerto Penasco to San Jose del Cabo and learn how to photograph the smallest of small critters to the largest of large mammals!
Baja California is a unique adventure … it is a journey where there are no roads, a handful of people and only an occasional boat.
Each day you will awake to an amazing sunrise amongst some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world…clear skies, deep blue seas and terrain only millions of years could create. Enjoy 3 to 4 dives daily as you move from island to island. Legendary diver Jacques Cousteau described the Sea of Cortez as the “world’s aquarium”. Dive on untouched walls and reefs abounding in marine life.
The northern portion is a macro photographers’ dream with nudibranchs, colorful blennies, dancing jawfish, and sea horses. You will snorkel with whale sharks and do multiple dives with playful sea lions. Going south you will experience an exciting night dive with mobula rays, see schooling hammerheads and dive wrecks, Fan Ming and Salvaterra. And divers are seeing giant oceanic manta rays again!
The bio-diversity between the northern and southern Sea of Cortez is incredible and diving the entire Baja is truly a spectacular experience. You will also see equally incredible sea life on the surface including dolphins, pilot whales, humpback whales, bluefin whales (the second largest mammal on the planet), orcas and sperm whales, flying mobula rays, blue and brown-footed boobie birds, cormorants, frigate birds, and the endemic yellow-footed gulls. The Sea of Cortez remains a secret oasis where the desert meets the sea.
