Diving the Sea of Cortez
What sets La Paz diving apart is the big stuff: giant mantas, sea lions, and impressive numbers of sharks, including whale sharks and hammerheads.La Paz is among the world's great dive destinations: More than 25 dive sites surround the islands outside La Paz's bay, such as Espíritu Santo, San José, and Cerralvo. Here are the area's most notable dive sites:


  • El Bajo: This is a pinnacle starting at 18m with a relatively flat top. The sites often attracts big schools of hammerhead sharks. Also present is the Panamic green moray e. Visibility is general very good. In the area you can also see a few other pinnacles with peaks between 18-45m below the surface.
  • La Reina & La Reinita: A rather deep wreck dive possibility down to 45m. The wrecks are in front of the tiny islands of Cerralvo, about 90 mins from La Paz. Here you can see brain coral, tropical, fish, rays and different types of moray eels. In the summer mponths it is possible to also see giant sea horses in the area. Encounters with whales are usual during the winter calving season.
  • Los Islotes: Famous for its rock caves and friendly sea lions. These 2 large rock islands (one has a natural arch where you can dive thourgh the centre). The dive site is about 90 mins from La Paz. This is an easy dive which startes at 5m down to around 30m.
  • Salvatierra Wreck: This 75m long ferryboat sank in 1976 after colliding with the nearby reef. The vessel now lies on a sandbar at 18m, making it an excellent wreck dive. The wreck is located in the San Lorenzo Channel and is filled with sea life.
