Founder, Owner, Naturalist Guide, Dive Instructor
Marine Wildlife has always been my greatest passion. Over the last 10 years I travelled the world and worked in dive centers on 4 continents. The bio diversity and beauty of Baja have enchanted me from the first moment I arrived here. and During the last 4 years I specialized my work as a naturalist guide and dive instructor in this area and got to know Baja California Sur and its most hidden paradises.

About our Company Name
The name "Selkie" originated from the Nordic European legends who tell of seals emerging from the sea, shedding their skin and turning into beautiful human beings. In all the stories a human falls in love with the enchanting creature. The human would hide the selkie's skin to keep him or her from returning to the ocean. Many times they would get married and have children. So they live happily for many years until one of the children finds the selkie's skin, whereupon the selkie returns into the sea, because it's love for the ocean is stronger than anything else.
