Diving Isla Espiritu Santo
Baja California, Mexico
Diving in the Sea of Cortez is truly rewarding regardless of how experienced you are. Explore the wildlife rich waters that surround La Paz and the Espiritu Santo Islands and get up close to sea lions, manta rays, whale sharks and a huge variety of fish!
Accompanied by a local, National Geographic guide, explore the Sea of Cortez which is heralded as a natural aquarium due to the rich and varied marine life which is present year-round. The dive site and marine life will depend on the sea conditions, currents, time of year and your previous diving experience but regardless of the location it is guaranteed to be an incredible experience!
The Espiritu Santo Islands are home to spectacular coral reefs which attract an array of rainbow-coloured fish and huge predators such as hammerhead sharks. Look out for tuna, dorado, Pacific mantas, octopus, eels and other shark species as you explore this magnificent underwater world. Playful sea lions will likely make an appearance, coming up close to satisfy their curiosity! Isla Ballena (whale island) includes some wonderful cave diving so is perfect for the adventurous, while other sites boast impressive sea walls or rock formations; all are equally spectacular and boast a plethora of weird and wonderful creatures to keep you entertained.
