The mid sized town of La Paz, on the Sea of Cortez has a great waterfront location in the middle of a long bay. It's clean with lots of restaurants, newly painted buildings & friendly people. Diving is off a series of islands that extended out from La Paz into the Sea of Cortez.

A 2 hour boat ride (including a stop-off on one of the larger islands) took us to the Isla de Islotes, home to a sealion colony. Friendly sea-lions: as soon as we dove in, they came out to play. Playing included aquabatics & posing & playful nips on our arms (& our cameras!). Lots of fun, though the water was chilly (60 F) in late February. It warms up substantially in the summer to the mid 80s! In the video (shot snorkeling), if you look carefully, at one point you can see a set of whiskers brushing right across the face of my camera! The rest of her brushed along my forearm. Now THAT’s what I call a close encounter!

We stopped off at another reef location, plenty of smaller fish & a couple of stonefish! Here's a short video of the reef.

Whales come in to the Sea of Cortez, including the largest: the Blue Whale. We didn't see any diving, but did see some on the surface. I definitely plan to come back to the Sea of Cortez in the near future.
