Comments Took one day to dive Los Islotes and Espiritu Santu out of La Paz. Long boat rides, which also makes the diving pricey. Los Islotes was really nice, great viz, plenty to see. The main attraction there are sea lions, I was skeptical about that as I hate Stingray City and any place where the fauna act like underwater squirrels at the park. These were hilarious, though, and I admit to having to clear my mask a few times from laughing when they would grab my wife's fin or swim through her bubbles.

Also dove the Fang Ming wreck off of Espiritu Santu, it was OK, not that exciting. The boat ride out, past and among the islands, was really beautiful. Easy to imagine Baja years ago, before Cabo San Lucas became spring break / condo hell.

Two dives doesn't make this chock full of info, but glad we went. Cortez Club was a good operation.
