Smith Diving is leading a scuba dive vacation to Baja, Mexico. Come along with us for an exploration of the Baja peninsula, the Sea of Cortez and Mexican Pacific coastal waters.
We will be flying out of Los Angeles on the morning of August 4th, 2007 and staying at the Club Cantamar, located on the water 12 miles east of La Paz.
This trip is a tremendous value. Our trip price includes airfare, hotel, diving, transfers and all meals at the resort!
June through August are prime Manta and Whale Shark months along Baja, and Club Cantamar has it's own spotting plane to ensure great encounters. Advanced divers on this trip can visit El Bajo, a series of 3 seamounts. These pinnicles start at 60 feet and drop off thousands of feet. Around these seamounts schooling hammerheads, mantas, whale sharks and pelagics are seen year round. This is also the home to a large school of panamic green eels.
Baja is not a coral experience but a big sea animal adventure.
The Sea of Cortez is home to more than 700 species of identified fish including marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dorado, amberjacks, yellow tails and schooling baracuda. The sea lion colony of Los Islolotes is nearby. There you can snorkle and play with these pups of the sea.
Jaques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez
"the aquarium of the world".
Water temperature will be around 85 and visibility is normally around 80-100 feet.
