If you don't like fishing – or just want a day off – we have an impressive list of water-related sports and breath-taking activities. If you want to get wet and physical, maybe a day wind surfing or kite boarding will do the trick. Or maybe you’d like a closer look at the Sea of Cortez from the fish's perspective, either snorkeling or Scuba diving among them. Prefer boating? How about being the Captain of your own kayak skimming across a sea that behaves like a gently flowing river . . . even if you can't see the other bank. Maybe combine exercise and lots of water on a stand-up paddleboard. If you want something more challenging and physically-demanding, how pitting your surfing skills against some of the most famous shore breaks in Baja? Our Sea of Cortez has it all.
Regardless of your skill level, our dive tours will delight you.
