SOUTHERN BAJA SAFARI
EXPLORE THE SEA OF CORTEZ
The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California is a strip of water separated from the Pacific Ocean by the Baja Peninsula. This isolation, on land and underwater, provides a unique series of contrasting ecosystems from the vast solitude of the desert to the rich underwater realms and black coral gardens.
Trip prerequisites: must be ready and willing to experience the adventure of a lifetime! We will be at the right place at the right time to see Blue Whales, Bull Sharks, and flying Mobula Rays. Go on day and night dives at remote islands that are inaccessible without a long-range liveaboard like ours, encountering the abundant sea life that the Sea of Cortez has to offer. We will also explore popular dive sites such as Los Islotes where we’ll encounter friendly sea lions, El Bajo, which is known for its schools of Hammerhead Sharks and a fabulous night dive with Mobula rays. Included in our itinerary is a day spent diving in Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park, the only living reef on this side of the hemisphere where divers can experience schools of fish that are over 40' tall. This is a voyage you don’t want to miss!
