Diving with Cortez Club

La Paz is among the world's top ten destinations to scuba dive and has the opportunity to see Hammerhead Sharks, Sea Lions, Giant Pacific Manta Rays, Whale Sharks and more...

Cortez Club'sunsurpassed service is geared toward a hassle-free and relaxing dive experience. You will find all your equipment waiting for you on the boat in the morning, which will be moored at our private jetty.

During the day, all your equipment will be set up for you, unless you wish to do it yourself. Leaving you only to slip your equipment on and dive. At the end of the day, just stroll up to the Sunset Bar to order your favorite drink, while your equipment is unloaded, rinsed in fresh water and stored for you, ready for the next day of spectacular diving.



The waters of La Paz and the Sea Of Cortez offer world class snorkelling due to its marine diversity and in particular the Island of Espiritu Santo with its numerous white sandy beaches and rocky parameters it lends itself to exploring and snorkelling.

There are sites closer to La Paz such as Balandra Bay and San Rafaelito where we offer daily excursions.

However there is nothing that comes close to a trip to the Island of Espiritu Santo where you have a sight seeing extravaganza and a most memorable snorkelling experience.


Snorkeling with Whale Sharks

The Whale shark is the largest fish on the planet and there are few Whale species larger in size.

Thought to reach up to a possible 20 meters and 34 tons it seems difficult to believe that Whale Sharks feed on microscopic plankton and small fish.

The combination of its immense size and characteristic checkerboard pattern makes the Whale Shark almost unmistakable and completely unforgettable.

Snorkeling with the Whale Sharks has got to be one of the most uplifting experiences in the world. In season The Cortez Club will take you over to where you can swim with as many as 12 Whale Sharks in one area.


Whale Watching

Whale Watching is a year-round activity around the Baja Peninsula.

Baja California is fast becoming the premier location to watch whales in the world. More than 20 species of whales are encountered around Baja (most year-round), making this area an important center for whale observation.

In addition, whale watching is becoming more common in the Sea of Cortez. The magnificent Blue Whales, the largest living creatures on earth, come to the Sea of Cortez each year, as do Humpback Whales, Sperm Whales, Finback Whales, Minke Whales, Orcas, schools of dolphin and Pilot whales, and many other creatures of sea, land and air.

My friends and I dove La Paz with Cortez Club Scuba to experience diving w/ Sea Lions. We had booked through Bluewater Travel with Tristyn who included our hotel stay at La Concha Beach Resort, which is adjacent to Cortez Club Scuba. We received exceptional service and couldn't have felt more welcome by Cortez Club. We were greeted by Hose the day before our dive to drop off gear and finalize paperwork. Hose couldn't have been more gracious and offered a driver to escort my friends & I into La Paz. We took the offer and had a wonderful lunch and visit to the city.

The next day of diving provided an even better experience. Pablo (our Divemaster) and Ray (boat Captain), had our dive gear setup and we proceeded to the Sea Lion colony 1.5 hr boat ride. The ride was smooth and the scenery along the way was Beautiful. We were the 1st boat to the dive site which also includes snorkelers from other resorts. Being the 1st boat to arrive was very important to our experience as we avoided crowds which appeared later (towards the end of our dive day).

The dives included lunch, beverages, and snacks. The dive briefing was very complete and included safety precautions for how to dive with the Sea Lions. This is important as Sea Lions can be extremely playful and mischievous. I felt totally Safe due to Pablo's competent dive skills. He allowed us to interact safely with the Sea Lions and helped to make the whole experience Fun and memorable. We did 2 dives at the colony and Pablo also escorted us into a small swim through. We were able to take pictures of the aquatic life.

We did a 2nd day of diving and explored other dive sites that included an artificial reef alive with Moray Eels, Scorpionfish, Parrot Fish and other colorful Nudibranch's. On our 2nd dive day Cortez Club took our boat closer to the shore where we could had a much closer view the Beautiful coast of Mexico!

I would not hesitate to dive again with Cortez Club Scuba and would suggest using Tristyn ( if you are in La Paz looking for a wonderful dive experience.
