Jorge was born in Huatulco and grew up working on fishing and tourism boats. His knowledge of the ocean and his skills as a captain are legendary. Keeps our Stenella boat in top condition and our guests safe. We have moved his attention away from fishing towards the more sustainable practice of ocean wildlife watching and now he has become a dolphin whisperer. His expert eyes and network of local captains help us ensure the most dolphin and whale sightings.
