Manuel Rodriguez

Born and raised in Baja California Sur, Manuel is a true sudcaliforniano. He got a degree in electromechanical engineering but it was the natural habitats of his home that called to him, and he has guided and worked as a naturalist in Baja for the last 20 years. He has led kayaking expeditions from Loreto to La Paz and been a naturalist on Isla Espiritu Santo and Isla San Jose. On the the Pacific side of Baja, he leads trips to the whale sanctuaries in Magdalena Bay, and for many years worked with Grupo Tortugueros de las Californias on sea turtle conservation. He leant his expertise to the BBC for the book Unforgettable Things to Do Before You Die and to John Farnsworth for his book Coves of Departure: Field Notes from the Sea of Cortez. Manuel is a Wilderness First Responder and a 3-star British Canoe Union paddler. When not guiding, he performs in a heavy metal band and goes free diving, fishing, hiking, and kayaking.
