We divide into 2 groups, one dive master per group.

We provide 80 cubic ft., aluminum tanks that are both Din and Yoke compatible.

Suggested Gear & Clothing

DIVING

Besides your normal dive gear, each diver is required to have one dive computer as well as a safety sausage (SMB) and whistle.

We absolutely recommend exposure protection (wetsuits/light drysuits) on all of our trips. What you will need greatly depends on your personal comfort level.

The Southern Sea of Cortez is a dynamic body of water.  On average, water temperature ranges from the high 70's to the mid 80's Fahrenheit.

ON THE SURFACE

Dress is very casual, shorts, t-shirts, swimsuit cover-ups. Bring a light jacket/sweatshirt for the evenings just in case. Do not forget your hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. 

Remember - You Will Be On the Ocean

Occasionally there can be times that the sea can be rough. There are several over the counter remedies that can help you. Should you have a propensity to motion sickness or are concerned that you might develop symptoms, please prepare yourself with preventive measures before departure.
