While traveling and diving through the Baja Pennisula of Mexico

Anyone that has ever been scuba diving will tell you, it's a whole new world once you slip below the surface.
One of the best known ocean documentaries, Blue Planet, is so aptly named, because it really is like you're on a different planet, even just a few meters down.
Nothing comes close to the thrill of spotting a turtle munching on sea grass, an eel poking its head out from beneath a rock, a dolphin swimming circles around you, or a sleek and silent shark cruising past.
