After landing at La Paz which must be the friendliest airport ever and a 5 minute transfer to the marina it was like being in another world. Staying on a boat and travelling around the coast must be the most relaxing way of seeing the...More

About the neighborhood
La Paz is the capital of Baja California Sur and has lots to see and do; whether it is strolling the Malecon with an icecream or a coffee or investigating the catherdral and cultural centre you will want to allow a little time either side of your trip to have a wander.

Isla Espiritu Santo (the island that we will mainly be adventuring on) has been described as the jewel of the Sea of Cortez due to its rich life above and below the water. Beautiful sandy beaches, healthy mangroves, and desert hiles define the landscape above the water. Below the surface it teems with life - from playful sealions, to flying mobula rays and the smallest nudibranchs there is always something to explore.
Getting around
For getting around Baja we recommend a car although this is not necessary, especially during a charter.
How to get there
The Marina where the boat is located is close to the airport in La Paz and only a short drive from downtown. There is secure parking at the marina with 24 hour security. When everyone is on board the boat and ready we depart on your adventure into the Sea of Cortez.
