Scott is hands down the most experienced Documentary Film Logistics and Dive Safety Supervisor in Mexico. Scotts knowledge of Baja California, its wildlife, its oceans, its communities, and the way to make it all work to get results is unsurpassed.
Olegario Leon Alvarez
is the captain of m/v Storm. Originally from Baja California Sur he has been on the ocean for over the last 40 years, first on commercial fishing vessels before switching to tourism. Olegario operates with great experience the Revillagigedos, Guadalupe, and the Sea of Cortez. Everyone who has traveled has been aware of the hard work dedication he puts into our Custom Expeditions. His is a difficult task as all our trips are different, we (luckily) dont operate Storm on a constant cookie cutter "standard" trip like the rest. Come aboard and meet Olegario and see the difference his experience makes.

Ernesto is responsible for a bulk of our photos on our social media but additionally has worked on numerous productions and documentaries over the last decade. Ernesto is fluent in both his Native Spanish and English. He is much more than just our "DiveMaster", he is a highly specialized and dedicated diver and instructor.
