ScubaEarth Featured Destination – Baja, Mexico

Posted by

MexicoThe latest ScubaEarth Featured Destination is the stunning region of Baja, Mexico!

Baja is not easily encapsulated. It stretches 1240 kilometres/771 miles from the US border to Cabo San Lucas and “Land’s End”. On one side, you have the endless expanse of the Pacific, on the other side, you have the fecund, marine life rich Sea of Cortez, and 368 kilometers/230 miles south of Land’s End, you have the unique rocky islands and pelagic wonderland of the Revillagigedo Islands. Most of Baja is remote and uninhabited.

The Sea of Cortez is one of the richest marine environments in the world. Whale sharks, whales, rare sea turtles like leatherbacks, sea lions, mobula and manta rays, humboldt squid, and dozens of endemic species, keep this body of water lively year-round.

This is a bucket-list destination which should be high up any keen diver’s list!
