Big animal action like never before! Watch sea lions, cormorants, sea lions, and huge schools of fish before your very eyes. Get in the water with multiple whale sharks and interact with playful sea lions. See dozens of mobula rays feed during a very unique night dive. Potential to see turtles, mobula rays, octopus, giant morays, dolphins, beautiful nudibranchs, giant jawfish, frogfish, stunning blennies and seahorses. This is the best time to dive La Paz, with warm water, great visibility, and whale sharks.

Flight information

Guests can fly into La Paz Airport (LAP) or Los Cabos International Airport (SJD). Transfers to the hotel are included for arrival into either airport, but if you arrive into SJD, you may have to wait for the next transfer time (SJD is further from the hotel, so guests will be picked up in groups). Guests arriving into LAP will be picked up individually upon arrival for transfer to the hotel. 



Daily pick-ups are at 8:00 am for diving. The time out on the water each day can vary depending on how close the dive sites are, but generally, you will be back to the hotel by 3:00 pm. Workshop sessions and image reviews are generally held upon returning from the dive boat.
