Another busy year of travel is coming to a close. Things feel back to normal but my take away from the pandemic was to take advantage of last minute, small, and local underwater opportunities. This year presented old favorites and new locations that may become annual favorites.
2022 was another wonderful experience at Magdalena Bay Baja Mexico and La Paz and Cabo Pulmo scuba diving. This is my best trip with unexpected wildlife encounters with whales, seals, dolphin, marlin hunting sardines and giant schools of fish

If you are planning to get away this summer, there is no better place than Isla Mujeres, Mexico in the Cancun area to combine unique and exciting whale shark encounters with a fun and vibrant beach vacation. The annual aggregation of hundreds of whale sharks to the waters off Isla Mujeres is the best place in the world to snorkel with full sized gentle giants granting encounters with multiple whale sharks and giant manta rays.

2021 was a year to make up for postponed trips from 2020 but also to find new destinations and offer last minute trips to places open for travel. I was happy to return to favorite places like South Africa and Mexico while adding special experiences like the Sardine Run and Polar Bears. Enjoy reading stories and images from this incredible year.
