THE TEAM “El Equipo”

The staff here at Sea and Land are what really make out trips unique. Each guide, or captain bring something special to the table. We have English speaking naturalist guides, and seasoned veteran fisherman to ensure each adventure on the Sea of Cortez is a success. There is also a large number of folks behind the trips. They do everything from helping coordinate logistics, to preparing home-made Mexican specialties for the trips. We are tremendously grateful to all of them and so happy to be a positive influence in this local economy.

Who is the local expert on all things Loreto and everything else under the sun? Why Jordan of course! We are lucky to have someone on board with us that can fix an air-compressor, a rubix cube, and if we're lucky bless us with one of his crazy jokes in either English or Spanish.

If you ask for this Loretano (Loreto native) by his real name, you'll probably just get a lot of blank stares. However ask anyone in town for Gali and they'll know exactly who you are talking about. We are super lucky to have him as our logistics guru and right hand man.
