Diving in the Sea of Cortez

Diving in the Sea of Cortez

Mexico
The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, is a 700 mile (1,126 km) stretch of water that separates the Baja California peninsula from the Mexican mainland. The sea, sheltered from the swells of the Pacific Ocean is usually very calm. It contains numerous islands, pinnacles and rocks around which are countless Liveaboard dive sites. What makes the Sea of Cortez truly special, however, is its unique and rich ecosystem. Unforgettable encounters with hammerheads, sea lions, mobula rays, wild dolphins and whale sharks - all in just a few days of diving - are pretty commonplace in the Sea of Cortez.
