Northern Sea of Cortez
Legendary ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau described the Sea of Cortez as the "World's Aquarium" and the "Galapagos of the North” because of its clear, deep blue waters, inspiring vistas and abundant sea life. With some of the most amazing dive sites, the Northern Sea of Cortez remains the hub of scuba diving in the Baja California peninsula. From visitors wanting to try diving for the first time to people looking for a wondrous & adventurous diving experience, the northern side of the Sea of Cortez has alluring dive sites for all levels of divers.
One of the first spots to dive in the waters along the coastline of Northern Sea of Cortez is Angel Island. It is a great site for swimming with sea lions. Dive on untouched walls and coral reefs teeming with marine life in Midriff Island. Here you can encounter great whale species, manta and jumping mobula rays.
