Ocean  Tours, Activities and multi day tours
for Ocean Lovers operated by Explore Baja

The seas have intrigued and sustained human kind for as long as we have existed. The waters that surround the 1,000-mile long Baja Peninsula are no different. In fact, the marine life here is so vibrant, the biodiversity so vast, and the beaches so spectacular that it inspired Jacques Cousteau, a famous explorer, to describe the Gulf of California as the world’s aquarium.

These wonders demand to be explored, and at Explore Baja there’s nothing that we love to do more. We are sons of Baja, of the fishing villages who dot the peninsula, of the seas we’ve navigated since childhood. And we know that being in touch with nature, having hands-on experiences is what helps one feel totally alive. We also know that in Baja, you can always expect the unexpected.

Enjoy the underwater world, uncrowded areas, many  known only by locals, you  might encounter with giant mantas, mobulas, whale-sharks, variety of whales or gray whales in their sanctuaries, or simply hundreds of colorful fish. If you are advanced in water or novice you will never be disappointed and will confirm why Jaques Cousteau named us the world's  aquarium.
