Typical Sea of Cortez Dive - Pangas (classic Mexican wood and fiberglass boats) are the norm for resort diving. These versatile, outboard-powered craft provide smaller groups with fast, easy access to the dives dive sites.
Several operators have larger, more "traditional" dive boats. Liveaboards will dive from their tender boats. Dives in the Sea of Cortez can be a shallow "fishbowls" with fantastic vis or deep dives in stiff current looking for hammerhead sharks, so there are options for everyone.
Topside & Non-Diving Activities - Sea of Cortez dive resorts offer activities like fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, sandy beaches, dining and lounging by the pool. Keep in mind that swimming with whale sharks is limited to snorkels and no tanks, so it's a great opportunity to bring non-divers on an ocean adventure. Non-diving activities on liveaboards are limited to snorkeling and enjoying the sun decks.
