Flight information

Guests can fly into La Paz Airport (LAP) or Los Cabos International Airport (SJD). Transfers to the hotel are included for arrival at either airport, but if you arrive at 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. 

 

Schedule

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.

Discover the rich and exciting marine life around Cape Cabo and the Sea of Cortez in this 2-day shark and marine-life safari.

There is also the possibility of encountering marlin, sea lions, baitballs, numerous other species of cetaceans, and even orcas.

Swimming with sharks is an incredible experience, and one day will be spent in a prime shark spot, chumming for various shark species. The encounters are carried out with safety as a top priority, allowing guests to relax and enjoy their time in the water with blue sharks, mako sharks, and silky sharks.

With a maximum of 6 guests onboard, this is an exclusive trip providing intimate encounters with some of Baja's best marine life. Learn more about the Cabo Marine Life Safari here...
