Crossing South To The Baja Oceans

CROSSING SOUTH is a travel show which explores Tijuana and Northern Baja. Bilingual travel companion and host Jorge Meraz takes the audience on a journey and de-mystifies the area. Jorge goes further down Baja in this ocean-themed special. First we go to the "Natural Sea-World" at Bahia de Los Angeles, where we go fishing, snorkeling, and searching for the famed whale shark. Then we head to San Quintin where we explore the fascinating world of seafood farming. Our last adventure takes us to Ensenada where we watch the ocean water fly into the air at the largest ocean-geyser in North America, La Bufadora.
