WHEN: September 20 - October 2, 2025 (13 days / 12 nights / 11 days of diving)
WHERE: Sea of Cortez/Explore Baja
This is truly an exploration as we cover 700 miles from Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) to San Jose del Cabo!
Each day you awake to a fantastic sunrise amongst some of the most breath taking scenery in the world...clear skys, deep blue seas, and terrain only millions of years could create. Enjoy 3 -4 dives daily as we move from island to island. Dive untouched wall and reefs abounding in marine life. The north is a macro photographer's dream with nudibranchs, colorful blennies, dancing jawfish and sea horses! Encounter large and small whale species, snorkel with whale sharks, see jumping mobula rays and dive with playful seal lions.
As we go south, dive on wrecks, Fan Ming and Salvaterra, do a night dive with mobula rays, and hopefully see schooling hammerheads and giant mantas!
If you wish to hike remote islands during surface intervals, there is always a dingy available to take you to shore. There are also kayaks available to take a serene cruise around the islands. And don't forget they will spoil you with amazing meals and a great crew!
