Diving The Archipelago Liveaboard La Paz

Diving The Archipelago Liveaboard Sea of Cortez

La Paz

In the warm, crystal-clear waters just minutes from La Paz lies one of the most intact ecosystem in the world. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. the crown jewel of the Sea of Cortez, Espiritu Santo Island Archipelago boasts 500 species of fish, unique plants and diverse wildlife. One-third of all the world’s whale and dolphin species either live or migrate here including the year-round resident fin whale.

Los Islotes is home to an important rookery of some 400 resident sea lions, Zalophus californianus. Snorkel with curious pups that swim straight at you only to zoom away in a froth of bubbles, tugging on your fins when you least expect it. Observe dynamic schools of uncountable colorful fish, magnificent sea turtles, breaching mobula rays and the occasional Humpback.

We will explore as many spectacular spots as conditions allow — sea mounts, reefs and a wreck are all nearby! Our trips are designed for certified divers of all skill levels. 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. Welcome to your ideal Baja Ex-perience. A portion of the proceeds from your expedition goes to support local environmental education and conservation research programming. .Questions? Contact us.
