SEA OF CORTEZ DAY DIVE HOTEL BASED PACKAGES

Baja Dive Boat

Baja California is one of the great spots to dive in the world. Picture yourself diving in beautiful Baja.

"My first warm-water trip was to La Paz, and it was memorable. We easily had 100 foot visibility in 90 degree water."

La Paz is located between Cabo San Lucas and Loretto in Baja Sur (south). September through November is an excellent time to dive La Paz. The water is still warm and clear. Day diving boats are comfortable and well run by excellent dive personal.
