Quick Summary: In this special Girls That Scuba expedition I got to meet some incredible, strong, funny, smart and interesting women. It was one of the most hilarious yet empowering trips I’ve been guiding. We had so many amazing wildlife sightings! Makos and humpbacks in one day in Cabo, at least 5-6 Blue whales around us in Loreto and the most heartwarming Grey whale babies coming to our boat to play and check us out in Lopez Mateos. There’s nothing like a baby whale coming right up to you and allowing you to have such intimate interactions. This trip was a life changing experience for all of us, full of inspiration, excitement and new friendships.
