Dive & Snorkel with Sea Lions in Mexico - Guided by a Marine Biologist


Whale shark and Sea Lions around La Paz, Mexico

Pick your favorite: SCUBA dive or snorkel with sea lions in Baja California Sur. The water is warm, the sea lions are always playful and you are invited to help with marine research!

Jay uses the opportunity of each visit to the sea lions to contribute to research and you are invited to join. Help answer questions about population dynamics, seasonal abundance and other useful information. If you have an underwater camera, please bring it! Otherwise there are options to rent one - perfect for your own memories as well of course.

You can join a trip to see sea lions every month. From June until the end of August you are not allowed to enter the water. This is because it is breeding season for the sea lions and they are protected by law. In June, July and September we take you to them so you can watch 'the show' from the boat. It is great fun to watch!
