Our journey began in Puerto Peñasco as we boarded the Rocio del Mar for a 7-day expedition with our guests in search of amazing critters and creating memorable images. Our Immersed Imaging workshop concentrated on the inhabitants of the Midriff Islands including the seemingly omnipresent orangethroat pikeblennies and bluespotted jawfish.
Although the topside conditions were hot, humid, and often very windy, we enjoyed ocean temperatures ranging from 69ºF to 86ºF. Visibility varied from 20′ to 60′, although a majority of our guests spent their dives searching for all-things macro.
On the day before our departure, we went in search of whale sharks in Bahía de los Ángeles. They did not disappoint!
