return to La Paz
Dive the Sea of Cortez
October 28-November 1, 2023
5 days/4 nights/3 days of diving
Dive the Sea of Cortez with Dive World Austin.
The diving was so amazing last year that we are returning to dive the Sea of Cortez. We loved the city of La Paz so much, that we are staying in town to take in all the city has to offer!
This is a long-weekend trip format, rather than a weeklong trip. We leave Saturday and return on Wednesday.
The Sea of Cortez is nestled between the Baja California Peninsula and mainland Mexico. Jacques-Yves Cousteau called this area "the world's aquarium" because of its immense diversity.
About the Hotel
Hotel Catedral La Paz is part of the historic center of the city, surrounded by major attractions next to Our Cathedral Lady of La Paz. With its sophisticated contemporary modernist architecture, Hotel Catedral La Paz focuses on every detail to offer its guests excellent service and quality in the rooms and its gourmet restaurant.
About the Dive Operation
Cortez Club is the only PADI 5-star dive resort for over twenty-five years now in La Paz. The warm water season is from July 15 through to November 15 with water temperatures from 84-90f and visibility often over 60 feet. The whale shark season starts from October 1 to May 31 every year. The sea lion colony of Los Islotes is an excellent dive all year round with 450 brown Californian playful sea lions. In late October, giant Pacific manta rays can be seen at one specific dive site called La Reina off the island of Cerralvo. Most diving is around the island of Espiritu Santo. There are over 25 different sites to visit in La Paz.
