5-Night Stay on Magdalena Island
2-Night Stay on La Ventana
See Whales, Mobula Rays, Dolphins, Orcas & More!
In the surface, the mountains covered with Baja California Sur’s cactus and the ground landscape make a remarkable contrast with the exuberant vibrating underwater wildlife. The amazing one on one encounters with the megafauna make diving in Baja California Sur so special. It’s a pleasure being able to watch orcas, dolphins or whales from the boat before getting to the diving spot.
