Marine biologist and absolutely passionate about the sea. I love being outdoors and sharing my knowledge and experience in the area with people from all around, teaching the diversity of Mexico and the importance of animals and ecosystems.
I'm a marine biologist specializing in sharks. I have a master's degree in marine sciences, rescue diver with more than 500 dives, I practice recreational kayaking, snorkeling and a bit of surfing. I've been in La Paz for 8 years and I have become an expert in logistics for any trip or expedition in the area. I have organized a filming expedition for Fundación Televisa and I have participated in National Geographic Expeditions.

Tome el tour en Kayak hacía el islote muy cerca, con colonia de lobos marinos, snorkel y pausa en una linda playa accesible solo via mar. Todo fue perfecto, desde la comunicación con Pete antes del tour. En particular me sugirió cambiar el día dados los riesgos de tener mal tiempo. Lo que en efecto sucedió! Por otro lado, como es biologo marino Pete te puede dar un montón de información valiosa sobre el entorno marino. Así que sin duda recomiendo contactarlo!
We had a chance to go out with Pete Rodriguez on a Whale Shark Excursion and could not be happier with the experience. Pete was thoughtful and passionate about the Whale Sharks and his background as a Marine Biologist showed. We were really impressed with his commitment to all of the area and keeping the sea, ocean and marine life as pure and undisturbed as possible. The absolute highlight of our trip.
This was our second excursion with Pete during our trip to La Paz. Pete gave us 2 options on our kayak excursion, a shorter calmer route or a longer more adventurous route - we chose the longer route. We paddled out of Playa Pichilingue and out to San Rafaelito where we were able to get off the kayak and swim with the sea lions. WOW, what an experience! We then paddled to a very beautiful beach that is only accessible by boat or kayak, very secluded and beautiful. We went on a short hike up the cliff side where we had an amazing view of the sea and beach. All along the way Pete told us all about the various sea life and what goes on in the area, his knowledge and friendliness were the best. We cant wait to go back!
