Cabo San Lucas, Baja, Mexico

Cocos Island, Costa Rica

Coronado Islands, Baja, Mexico (via San Diego)

Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico
Cozumel is the drift diving capital of the Caribbean (great for video, harder for still photos). The currents regularly bring a variety of fish life and invertebrates to the island's colorful reef. Deep dives are available, but you'll generally find safe, easy diving in clear tropical water (visibility normally 100ft/30m or more). The favorable dive conditions, combined with direct flights to the U.S. and proximity to the booming mainland resort town of Cancun, make Cozumel one of the world's most popular dive destinations.

Guanaja, Bay Islands, Honduras

Gulf of Papagayo, Costa Rica

La Paz, Baja, Mexico
Only a 2 hour flight from Los Angeles, La Paz is a tranquil Baja city famous for its large marine life. The Sea of Cortez has more types of marine mammals than anywhere else in the world, and La Paz is their playground. You?ll find sea lions, elephant seals, whales and dolphins. Schooling hammerheads, whale sharks and manta rays are also major attractions. Boat rides to dive sites are long, but the bay is normally very calm and watching mantas, whales and dolphins frolic at the surface helps pass the time. Jan to May is considered the off season due to low visibility and cold water.

Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Socorro Islands, Mexico
Famous for manta rays and hammerheads. The mantas here actually seek out divers for physical contact. Stroking is allowed (without gloves) but no riding. The hammerheads are skittish but plentiful. The islands in this archipelago are Socorro, San Benedicto, Roca Partida (a pinnacle), and Clarion (the farthest away and rarely reached). Roca Partida is on a par with the best shark dives in the world - seeing 7 species on a single dive is not uncommon. The islands are volcanic, remote and uninhabited. Diving is by liveaboard only (a 22-hour trip from Cabo San Lucas, Baja). No night diving. Not recommended for new divers.
