Dive in La Paz
Diving expedition in La Paz
Why dive in La Paz?
La Paz and the Sea of Cortez, are one of the most magical and unknown diving destinations of Mexico and the world. Diving with friendly sea lions, playing with their pups, and exploring ship wrecks are but a few of the wonders hidden at La Paz underwater world.
Any season is good to dive in La Paz, but October and November are the best time of the year for scuba diving, with excellent visibility of up to 80 feet, and water temperature at around 72-84 F. From January to June we can enjoy dives at around 66-71 F, and a visibility of 19-49 feet.
Here, in Mexico Travel Adventure we are diving fanatics and we perfectly know what is needed to have a completely satisfying underwater experience. We make sure you dive with people with your level of experience. We work with small groups because we don’t like crowded dives, and we want our divers to experience authentic, fulfilling adventures.

Our diving expeditions in La Paz take place in such incredible places as wrecks, rocky reefs, and colonies of friendly sea lions. In addition, it is common to see sea turtles, mobulas, schools of fish and some marine invertebrates such as octopuses or nudibranchs. And sometimes, in the right places and with a little luck, we can see sharks, dolphins, diving cormorants, and giant manta rays.
Diving with sea lions is not allowed during their reproductive season (June, July, and august). We'll take you to other cool dive sites!
