Mexico

When thinking of wildlife-rich destinations around the world, Mexico does not come to the top of my mind...until you start thinking about underwater wildlife.

In April, 2023, I got to experience first hand the thrill and beauty of snorkeling with some of the worlds biggest creatures off of La Paz, Mexico.   

It was an incredible experience to be in the water with these massive animals and one I hope to have again in the future.

I am working on blog posts and my travel gallery and will post them here when they are completed.  Be sure to sign up for email newsletter to get an update when I have them published.

Below you will find my VLOG videos posted on YouTube that list the day by day experiences on this trip.   The VLOGs are full of videos and pictures from my trip to La Paz, Mexico

Enjoy!

04-23-23 Blue Whale, Dolphins, Mobula Rays, lost flipper, Sea Lions VLOG #22 from La Paz, Mexico

Welcome to VLOG #19.   Where I discuss the wins and frustrations of being a solopreneur on a mission.

My mission:   To create empathy and awareness of wildlife rich destinations around the world, the animals that live there, conservation, and sustainable and ethical tourism.

In today's VLOG, The first day on the boat in La Paz, Mexico.
The goal for the day was to find Mobula Rays.  
6:15 departure with a 45 minute drive.  Loaded the boat.  We found rays quickly but they were not active on the surface, so we looked for more.

Found another group quite far away and we snorkeled with a few different pods.   They were quite a bit underwater but it was really amazing to see so many of them.

After we were done with them, we saw humpbacks in the distance and we boated over to see them.  It was a mama humpback and her baby and the baby was breaching repeatedly.   Mama would breach on occasion too.

Then they would dive down for awhile and come back up and breach again.   We stayed with them for a long time.   Then as we were going to find a protected bay (the winds had started to come up by now), we saw mobula rays jumping out of the water.   A few people got back in and some of us (me included) photographed from the boat.   It was really cool to see them jumping so high out of the water.  Challenging to photograph.

Then we headed back to the car.   The wind had really picked up and for a part of the ride it was the boat slamming down on the water and then after we could turn the boat a bit, we were between swells and were getting soaked.   We were all happy to have our wetsuits on.

A few pictures and videos -- they are not edited yet because I am super tired.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a beautiful day.
