La Paz Bay Diving

Spend your days diving in the Sea of Cortez and your nights exploring La Paz's active downtown. We suspect your fondest memories will be of the amazing biodiversity you’ll discover beneath the sea, but who knows what kind of wildlife may come out at night in the city! We typically offer 2 dives per day. However, the time spent at each location will be determined by the currents, weather conditions, and the judgment of the captain and dive master. The trip itinerary is flexible and as conditions allow, and can be tailored to the wishes of the group.

We will explore as many local spectacular spots as conditions allow — underwater sea mounts, reefs, and wrecks are all nearby! Our trips are designed for certified divers; depending on the underwater conditions, most of the dives are easy, though some are only for divers with more experience. Our crew members will work with your group to map out the best itinerary. The prime diving season starts in July and August and ends at the end of October. A portion of the proceeds from your expedition goes to support local environmental education and conservation research programming.
