Trip overview

In order to visit the bigger half of La Paz, you have to go underwater. Follow in the great Jacque Cousteau’s footsteps, or shall we say in his wake; and discover why the Sea of Cortez is the world’s aquarium. Head out into the Bay of La Paz in an outboard skiff with full shade. Your naturalist guide will brief you on the sites you will be diving, as well as the natural history of the island. You’ll have the chance to explore some of the top dive sites that surround La Paz, which range from two shallow wrecks, seamounts teeming with fish, and depending on the season, the sea lion rookery (the site selection will depend on group’s proficiency and will be determined by your guide and time can be accordingly allocated for snorkeling or SCUBA diving). Between dives you’ll enjoy a scrumptious lunch. You will return to La Paz in time for dinner.


*During the sea lion mating period, from June 1st through August 31st, sea lion observation takes place from onboard our boats. After observing the sea lions from the boat, we will travel to a diving site away from the rookery to dive with tropical fish.

  • On itinerary: We will make all efforts to adhere to the itinerary described above, but we may modify the itinerary due to wind, weather, and other factors. The safety and enjoyment of our travelers are our top priorities. Please see our terms and conditions for more information. We do not guarantee wildlife sightings, interaction or behavior.

  • On trip insurance: All of our experiences are covered by  an Emergency Medical Expenses insurance. In order to obtain coverage, each guest MUST SIGN A LIABILITY WAIVER BEFORE DEPARTURE. 

  • Climate and weather: La Paz is situated on the Gulf of California on the southern part of the Baja California peninsula. It is separated from the Pacific by a desert environment with low mountains in between. We get large temperature swings, typically in the late fall and spring, up to 104 degrees fahrenheit (40 degrees celsius). This can be true even during winter. Outside of summer, we recommend packing for HOT and COLD weather. Most importantly, be prepared for a sun that’s stronger than you may be used to due to our latitude. Remember, a sunburn takes just a couple hours to develop, but it can ruin the rest of your trip. Stay shaded and stay hydrated. 

  • Luggage: For day trips, you’ll want to bring a small bag or backpack for your water bottle and personal items. Our boats have a dry storage space.
