Cross over the U.S. border below the California state line and you’ve entered the great Baja peninsula. It is a land of vast, dry desert studded with cardon cactus and pine-rich rock mountains. Heart-stopping underwater encounters await you on sites surrounding the many uninhabited wind-raked islands dotting the coastline. The plankton-rich currents of the Pacific along the western coast of California Sur and sheltered waters of the Sea of Cortez support whale sharks, dolphins, giant manta rays and schools of sharks such as scalloped hammerheads.

La Paz and Loreto on the southern interior and Los Cabos (Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo) at the southern tip are the staging areas for expeditions to dive with the same sharks and rays that draw divers to exotic locales like Cocos Island and the Galapagos.

Out in the deep, 220 miles southwest of Cabo, the Socorro island chain, also known as Islas Revillagigedo, is an uninhabited archipelago that offers tremendous diving on its lava-forged flanks.
