Sea Lion Dive La Paz

Sea Lion Dive La Paz is one of the best dives you can do while visiting Baja California Sur. This is one of the only places where you have the chance to interact with baby sea lions as well as diving amongst huge schools of fish.


Espíritu Santo Island is a protected area and was declared part of a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1995. This beautiful island is located in the sea of Cortez a few miles off the coast of La Paz. The island is home to around 600 sea lions giving you a high chance to enjoy cuddles on your dive with cheeky sea lion pups.

As you are scuba diving in a protected area there are a high number of different species in the area.  You have the chance of seeing hundreds of baby sea Lions as well as the impressive big bulls. Diving off these islands in La Paz gives you the chance to see mobula rays, dolphins, birds, and even dolphins and orcas on the way out to the dive site.
