Liveaboarder on the East Coast

Just over 400 kilometers south of Los Cabos are the Revillagigedos islands, where the most famous is Relief. Here you dive surrounded by dancing giant manta rays and playing with dolphins.

In August and September, the liveaboards go to Guadalupe Island. This island has quickly become the best place in the world to dive with white sharks in specially built cages. Because hookah (hose from the surface) is used instead of diving bottles on these trips, you do not need to be a certified diver to enjoy the rush that occurs when you are face to face with a 5 meter white shark. A real adventure and which can be combined with longer liveaboard trips to San Benito's fantastic kelp forests.

The Sea of ​​Cortez, the California peninsula's own inland sea, is known for whales, sharks and very exciting marine life. Here you can dive from liveaboard as well as from land and stay at the resort. Here, where the desert meets the sea, you have access to fantastic diving.
