Ce vei face

NOTE: You have to be able to swim and feel comfortable doing so in the sea. During the colder months of the year the use of wetsuits will be required. If you do not have a wetsuit we would have to obtain one either an hour before, or the day before the experience. For more information and before making any bookings please contact the host.

8:30-9:00am : We will meet at El Esterito 1 restaurant, located in the Bahia San Carlos, where we will start with a brief PowerPoint presentation on the natural history and ecology of the region. We will also review the most common species we will likely encounter during our snorkel. If needed, I will provide snorkel gear which we will try on to ensure a comfortable fit and that everyone is well equipped for the days activity.

9:00-9:15am : We will drive in our vehicles to the snorkel destination.

9:15-9:30am : After parking our vehicles, we will review the snorkel site and discuss our general course to be followed while snorkeling. The route will be based on the current conditions (e.g. currents, wind, visibility etc.), and the ability and snorkeling experience of the group as a whole.

9:30-11:00am: We will snorkel the area and observe the spectacular marine life the Sea of Cortez harbors.

11:00- 11:30pm: We will reconvene as a group and discus our observations from the snorkeling experience while we enjoy a freshly prepared ceviche.

I have received a Master's in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Arizona through the Marine Sciences program. Originally from Caborca, Sonora I have always had a profound appreciation of the Sea of Cortez, and the people who call this region home. I speak both English and Spanish at a mother tongue level, and am in effect bicultural. As a former educator at the University of Arizona, I have taught and coordinated numerous field trips to the coast addressing conservation and ecology issues pertinent to the Gulf of California and the surrounding Sonoran desert. I hope to inspire and share my appreciation and understanding of the ecology of the region of San Carlos with you!

Unde vei fi

We will be snorkeling in a protected cove at the base of the iconic mountain of San Carlos, known as Tetakawi. This protected cove provides snorkeling opportunities for all levels of experience. Here we will see a diversity of reef fish including damselfish, angelfish, and butterflyfish. In addition we will see a variety of invertebrates including growths of emerald coral, gorgonian sea fans, and large zoanthid colonies.

Michael was fantastic, very knowledgeable, extremely helpful, and a delightful host. The only negative was the visibility for snorkeling could have been better, but that was certainly not his fault, and in fact he had warned it could happen. We’re just not here at the best time of year.

Michael knows a lot about the sea. He is so nice and explain a lot of things. If it’s the first time snorkeling, Michael will be a great teacher! 💕

Wonderful experience!! Started out with a bit of information on what you might see; then went to a wonderful location & got to see & touch many things; then ended with lunch on the beach. So cool & glad we did it!!

The trip was an amazing time and was well worth the price. Tour guide Michael was very knowledgeable and efficient. We got to see tons of different species of fish and swim through a giant school, all while Michael found different unique species to point out to us. Would do again!!!

Great experience, learned a lot about the ecosystem that lives in the area and how by itself is a unique ecosystem that only exists in the Cortez sea. Got to see and interact in a safe way with the marine life and at the same time learn about them.
