Summer on the Sea of Cortez

Called "The World's Aquarium" by Jacques Cousteau, the Sea of Cortez provides a world-class international dive experience with a domestic flight. Simply fly to Phoenix, Arizona, and, in just a few hours, you are boarding the boat in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.

Encounter large and small whale species, snorkel with whale sharks, dive with playful sea lions, and see countless eels, octopus, fish, and jumping mobula rays. It's a macro photographer's dream with nudibranchs, colorful blennies, dancing jawfish, and sea horses.

Between dives, you can hike and explore remote uninhabited islets and at night you can gaze at the Milky Way. You will dine on incredible cuisine and enjoy the friendly service that has made us famous.


The Sea of Cortez is a breathtaking destination for scuba diving, snorkeling, and exploration. Give us one week and we will create a lifetime of memories while forging new friendships aboard Rocio del Mar and Quino el Guardian. Contact us for dates, rates & availability.
