Diving in Baja California

Filled with amazing diving opportunities, Baja California is the long peninsula on the west of Mexico. Baja California offers one of the most thrilling underwater adventures: cage diving with Great White Sharks on the world-famous Guadalupe Island. These unique adventures fill up fast between the months of August to October, so make sure you book well in advance. Feel astonished by the abundance of large pelagic in the Socorro Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site accessible only by liveaboard. We recommend you visit around November through May, which are the best months to dive in Mexico. Baja California has something to offer for everyone. If you are a less advanced diver and you are looking for an experience that is just as unique, you can submerge in the crystalline waters and admire the rich wildlife of the Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, on the eastern side. Visibility is high and water is warm most of the year. Baja California has two large cities that are perfect for scuba diving due to the wide variety of sea life you will find: Cabo San Lucas and La Paz. Spot stingrays, fascinating coral reefs, sea lions and plenty of colorful fish species in Baja California.
