La Paz & Espiritu Santo Island Private Dive Day Charter

Dive pioneer Jacques Cousteau named the Sea of Cortez "the aquarium of the world". And rightly so: This is the best place to play with California Sealions and dive amongst huge schools of fish. But you can also find really great macro diving, including an uncountable amount of nudibranchs, octopuses, moray eels and colourful reef fish. And on top of that you can dive along huge volcanic rocks, that have been shaped into  incredible forms and sizes. On our way to dive site we often spot dolphins, whales or jumping devil rays. It really is a very special place. We know all the hidden gems , best dive sites and because we specialize on private trips we love to start our days early: To assure we are amongst the first ones that get to jump into the water, long before the crowds arrive.
