WHO WE ARE
DeepBaja is a sustainable tour operator company. We love and understand nature, therefore we want to share with all of our clients the passion we feel for the ecosystems that surround us in the peninsula. In order to appreciate and respect the different environments that we live in, we need to acknowledge their complexity and perfection without human’s influence. Now a days we live in a constant rush and we don’t take the time to connect with mother nature. DeepBaja wants to give you the opportunity to have a hands on experience with diverse natural areas that will take your breath away!
The owner and founder of Deep Baja is a Marine Biologist with 13 years of professional experience as a competitive freediver that has enriched his understanding and passion for the ocean and its wild life. He is a freediving (AIDA) and scuba (PADI) instructor, with wide knowledge on managing and leading expeditions with big groups of people.
AIDA International has the largest community of freedivers in the world and is responsible for dictating the most efficient safety standards to perform the sport of free diving.
This is a theoretical-practical course, basic for those who have the desire to experience free diving. Only by dedicating two days to basic apnea learning you will learn the principles of breathing, apnea psychology and relaxation exercises in order to feel the depth of the sea. You will understand what we will do in its entirety, and then we will have a session at sea to put into practice what we have acquired. Level 1 limits you to 20 meters deep.
Directed to anyone who is familiar with the sport of freediving and have their LEVEL 1 certificate. You will strengthen your free diving technique and also learn to use apnea fins (long fins) in the category of Constant Weight with Fins. Depth is an achievable challenge because you are able to submit to water pressure. In the end you will be able to hold your breath for 2 to 3 minutes, swim horizontally in a pool at least 40 meters and descend 15 and 20 meters feeling relaxed.
From August to November we offer AIDA Level 3 courses, because we enjoy teaching in the best conditions of the Sea of Cortez. The warm water, the great visibility, the wind and sometimes even the wildlife swimming around the lines will help you achieve relaxation in the perfect environment. Advanced sea practices, pisciona trainings and theoretical classes are what we will focus on. The program consists of 4 days of practice.
