Discover Baja, Mexico with Documentary Trips
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, February 3, 2022 @ 07:00 PM (EST)

With the coronavirus pandemic finally on the retreat and travel opening up, you’re probably chomping at the bit to get back in the water. One obvious option is Mexico, with the awesome big-animal action of the Baja Peninsula at the top of the list.

A great way to experience Baja is a trip led by a veteran underwater filmmaker—especially, of course, if shooting video is your thing. Among the best in the business is Documentary Trips, with a team that includes Steve De Neef, Diego Garcia, and Brian Marleau, who have worked with clients such as the BBC Natural History Unit, National Geographic, Disney, Discovery Channel, NBC, ESPN, and Channel News Asia.

Documentary Trips has a few great Baja trips coming up. From February 21st–25th, the team heads to Magdalena Bay to interact with gray whales and swim with makos, blue sharks, and whatever else they can find in the open ocean. For their May 29th–June 3rd and June 6th–13th trips, they travel across the region in search of orcas, big mobula schools, and various shark and whale species (perhaps even a blue whale). They even enlist the help of a spotter plane to maximize the odds of encounters!

Head to the Documentary Trips website for more details. Spots are open to all, photographers as well as videographers.
