"The Acquarium of the World"
This is how Jacques Yves Cousteau nicknamed the Cortez Sea when in 1974 he first explored the seabed. He faced a sea of incomparable beauty, an intact habitat unchanged for 25,000 years, with thousands of different species, over 1,200 according to today's biologists.
To protect forever the coral reef of Cabo Pulmo, the only one in the North Pacific, and Revillagigedo Archipelago, UNESCO proclaimed both as “World Heritage Sites”. They are considered by many documentarists at the top of world diving. Baja offers unrivaled reef and close encounter with hammerhead, tiger sharks, silk sharks, mako sharks, thresher sharks, whale sharks, sea lions, dolphins, orcas, humpback whales, blue whales, sperm whales, giant mantas, marlin, big tuna, six species of turtles, groups of thousands of carangids and much much more. It is believed that about 30% of species of living cetaceans frequent the waters of Baja California.
For those who are looking for great emotions we propose the exciting 4 day cruise to Guadalupe Island where it is possible to face great white sharks among the largest in the world. The cage will remain in the water at disposal of divers for the 24 hours, giving endless possibilities to film and admire in their natural environment these impressive giants of the sea.
Bajaescape organizes diving trips conducted by expert guides on board of specially prepared Suburban Chevrolet that touch the best diving spots on the peninsula and offers cruises in the Cortez Sea and around Socorro Island, in the remote archipelago of Revillagigedo, for unique and guaranteed encounters (this last cruise is reserved to high experienced divers and provides 22 dives).
