Mar de cortez

La Paz, the “Gateway to the Sea of Cortez” offers the best opportunities to explore the wonders of the beautiful Baja California south peninsula.

 

We cannot wait you to join the exploration of the pacific coasts of Mexico. World famous destination that offers the chance of diving with Whale sharks, Hammerheads, Sperm Whales and Sea Lions. Dolphins together with us in the navigation to the dive sites.

 

The colorful coral reefs are protected from the strong currents coming from the Sea of Cortez and old underwater volcanoes, canyons and pinnacles represent the great landscape of this area. Of course topped by amazing Mexican food at the end of our diving day.

Photogenic funny animals that spend their days sunbathing on the surrounding rocks. While diving we might have special encounters with very unique species like gray whales and seals.

La Paz and the surrounding islands witness wrecks, caves and wide range of pelagic species.

 

In the summer season in calm waters there are many baby seals and sea lions that are extremely interactive and friendly with visitors. They are so playful with divers that will make our day brighter.
