Start your adventure with a fun-filled day of diving into the depths of the Sea of Cortez. We'll begin with a line warm-up and training session, followed by a free diving exploration of two wrecks using a line attached for safer and easier diving. Our expert instructors will provide instruction and practice for proper technique for safely exploring the wrecks from the inside (optional) and for prolonging dive time.
Wake up early for a day of adventure as we head to play with the sea lions in the Sea of Cortez. Learn about sea lions life, behavior, and biology, have a safety briefing on how to interact and free dive with sea lion pups, and enjoy plenty of time playing with these adorable animals and exploring the area. After this enchanting encounter, we'll chart our course to a carefully selected location, where you can refine your freediving skills, train and revel in the thrill of exploring the ocean's depths. We'll take a break with snacks on the boat and have a late lunch on a secluded beach located on the island.
Head out to a spot near Ballena island for a deep freediving session, explore hidden caves near the small island, and enjoy a break for healthy snacks and lunch. Return to La Paz in the late afternoon with the possibility of stopping by the small sea lion colony located 30 minutes from the marina.
