Snorkeling and Scuba Diving in La Paz, Mexico


The sea may look tranquil from the surface, but below is a vibrant world of exotic marine life.  Discover these wonders firsthand with a scuba or snorkeling excursion to dive sites like El Baho, Cabo Pulmo or Cueva de Leon.  Swim with Hammerhead sharks, explore coral up close, and open your eyes to a new underwater world.

La Paz’s Best Dive Spots

  • El Bajito: Just next to the Los Islotes sea-lion colony, explore coral and other underwater wonders in this desirable dive spot.
  • El Bajo: Not recommended after just watching JAWS. Watch in awe as you see hammerhead sharks swim about.
  • La Reina and La Reinita: Brain coral, tropical fish, rays, sea horses, and several types of morays flourish here.
  • Los Islotes: Divers here can view the underwater rock caves and frolic with the friendly colony of sea lions.
  • Salvatierra Wreck: After a ferryboat sank after colliding with a nearby reef in 1976, the wreckage descended onto a sandbar and various types of marine life came to call it home at the southern end of Espíritu Santo.
  • San Francisquito: A popular location for advanced divers.
  • Whale Island: Explore dive-through caves, crevices, rocky reefs, and a coral forest at depths from 6 to 18m (20-60 ft.).
