Established since 1995, The Cortez Club has become the premier Scuba Diving, Sports fishing and water sports center in Baja California Sur. With its operations based at La Concha Beach resort, it expanded to the newly developed Costa Baja Marina & Resort and the private residences at Playa De La Paz.
The Cortez Club is owned by James Curtiss who chose La Paz (the city of peace) for its totally unique qualities. In particular, the Islands of Espiritu Santo and Cerralvo, the strong contrasts of desert meets the sea, its appealing year-round climate, its friendly and unspoiled inhabitants but most of all James recognized that the “pursuit of happiness” ultimately meant … La Paz , Mexico.
The Cortez Club prides itself on service and combined with the beauties that the “Sea of Cortez” has to offer, provides “you” the client, with everlasting memories.
We offer a wide range of aquatic activities including scuba diving, sports fishing, whale watching and a range of water sports.
Scuba Diving: day diving trips 2 or 3 tank dives, live aboard diving expeditions and instruction from “open water” certification through to“ instructor”. Nitrox and rebreathers are also available for the more experienced divers.
Whale watching is available from late December through to mid-April. Daily trips to the pacific bay of Magdalena, a breeding ground for the Gray Whales, allow you to have close encounters with these magnificent mammals.
