Tailor made trip to Baja California
What is the difference between our regular trip and special expeditions ?
Our half-day shark diving experience is open to all, from first-timers to experienced ocean explorers.
We offer the opportunity to safely interact with various shark species in Los Cabos. The special packages for professionals will allow us to travel larger distances and reach some of the best remote places to observe a wild ecosystem.
Our special expeditions will also give you more time in the water with marine life, more flexibility regarding interactions with animals (**depending on your needs and your experience), and the full support of our qualified and experienced team for your film production or research program.
Our team will strive to find the encounter you are looking for and will provide all the help you need to make your project a success.
Conservation efforts and collaboration with local communities
Our quest for unique encounters with wildlife will sometimes take us to remote areas of Baja California. Who better than local boat captains or fishing communities with decades of experience to help us find the right place and provide the support needed for successful encounters?
Since the beginning of Baja Shark Experience, our team has always tried to involve the local fishing communities as much as possible in our projects. The most effective way to protect the ocean is to directly involve those who work hard every day on the ocean. By fostering a good relationship with local communities, we can develop more sustainable programs.
During our previous explorations of the peninsula, we have established close ties with various fishermen who are now beginning to change their habits and have become a valuable aid to successful expeditions. By encouraging communities to co-exist with marine life, we can also motivate the people to take a more active role in wildlife conservation.
If your project involves taking us to remote places where the organization can quickly become a nightmare, our team will create the link you need with trusted people who have already collaborated with us.

Marine species in Baja California
The shortfin mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus), also known as the blue pointer or bonito shark, is a large mackerel shark. It is commonly referred to as the mako shark, as is the longfin mako shark (Isurus paucus). The shortfin mako is on record as the fastest-swimming shark, capable of bursts of speed up to 18.8 meters per second (68 km/h; 42 mph).
Orcas are one of the world’s most powerful predators. They are very intelligent mammals and effective killers. There are resident pods and transient pods of killer whales. Resident pods usually like to target fish while transients pods have a preference for marine mammals.
The protective bays of Baja California make the perfect environment for breeding and calving humpback whales. These magnificent whales usually begin arriving in the warm and nutrient-rich waters of Mexico around November and stay there until the end of March.
Mobula Rays (Devil Rays)
Lucky people who witness Devil Rays perform surface acrobatics rave about their experience. Watching these marine creatures make aerial leaps is truly an unforgettable experience.
