Socorro: Beyond ExpectationsGiuseppe Caruso and Gabrielo Mauro Tini, Italy, 25 November 2023It is almost impossible to organize a liveaboard better than the one we had during the last week. Nature remains still nature. The essence of nature showed up also during the last week: in some dive sites, we had the chance to admire fantastic pelagic creatures, while other sites seemed to be quite empty but […]

We don’t like whales. Find out why.
As Captain Mike explains, I am a diver. When I go on vacation, it’s all about diving. I’ve seen loads of whales on our Alaska Liveaboard trips and have no desire to see any more. Then, my close friend and the founder of Baja Expeditions since 1974, Timo, passed away. Timo was a diving pioneer […]
