Destination Overview

Your Summer Get-Away Begins Here
Dive the World’s Aquarium

The Sea of Cortez is a diver’s paradise. With it’s unique ecosystem and the overall natural beauty, have earned a UNESCO World Heritage Site status. We have been diving here for almost 5 decades and every time it has been exciting! Come see firsthand why this sea is called the “Aquarium of the World” and all of it’s natural wonders.

Meet the playful sea lions, surround yourself in a tornado of big eye jacks and schools of skipjacks. Lets not forget the huge pods of dolphins, turtles, mobulas, the hammerhead sharks around El Bajo & Los Animas, whales of all types of descriptions, shipwrecks and night diving. And if you’re lucky, giant mantas swimming around La Reina and orcas.

What an incredible adventure about the Gallant Lady! Each day brought us something new to see and experience. Days 1-4 included thousands of mobulas, hundreds of dolphins, multiple fin whales, a huge (possibly pregnant) whale shark, a humpback whale, a brydes whale, sea lions, turtles, and more! Day 5 the trip hit max velocity with the spotting of a pod of ORCAS! Minutes later we splashed on the curious pod and had the snorkel of a lifetime! The orcas milled about as we squealed in the water. Two babies and multiple adult orcas in the pod provided us with memories we will never forget!

The Sea of Cortez Vibrant with Life

The Sea of Cortez is loaded with life from huge pods of inquisitive dolphins, sharks, giant whale sharks, friendly sea lions, mobula rays, cow nose rays, swirling tornadoes of fish and sometimes even Manta Rays. Whales of all descriptions visit over the winter and into spring. Huge squadrons of mobula rays numbering upwards of 100,000 aggregate every spring, orcas have been frequent visitors over the last several years. Also, hammerhead sharks migrate into the sea in May and stay until early winter.

Operated For Safety

Operated For Safety

Safety is a very serious business. Mother Ocean can be capricious and unforgiving. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and you should expect and demand no less. In our view, every dive boat should be operated within a certified ISM safety management system, outfitted with sprinklers, emergency smoke hoods for everybody and the same safety, fire, life saving equipment and radios as the largest cruise ships. Captains, mates and engineers should have professional commercial mariner qualifications and all crew should have STCW professional mariner certification. Safety is not something to publish in a brochure. It’s part of our DNA. A cornerstone of our culture. Something that we have been living by for every day of the last 30 years.
