Diving from Loreto Baja California Sur is some of the best diving in the Sea of Cortez and maybe even the world.  Dive with giant round rays, huge schools of fish, beautiful abundance of nudibranchs, turtles, tropical fish, and a variety of landscapes.  With over 40 dive sites spread out over 3 islands all within 1 hour of Loreto Baja California Sur the sky's the limit!  Our dive masters and our dive captains have over 20 years experience exploring these waters.  Based on ocean conditions and your personal experience they can choose the site that best suits you.  PADI courses and refreshers also offered. We have large boats designed for large family groups or dive clubs. Smaller dive boats for private tours also offered.
