Diving in La Paz

From Loreto it was another 4 h drive back to La Paz. Which was uneventful while I was already missing my friends from Loreto. Shortly before La Paz there was a police control but we didn’t have a problem. They were busy taking apart an expensive looking car… 😉 Once arrived at my hotel I checked in and later walked along the Malecon – the beach promenade. Then had dinner at the restaurant of a nearby hotel and it wasn’t good. That night there was a party somewhere close by which was still raging at 4:30… I asked for a different room the next morning. And I got it. Diving for that day had been cancelled due to the weather conditions so I walked over to the dive-shop which was just around the corner to do the paper work and bring my equipment. The next morning we went out on a wreck dive first and a reef afterwards. During surface break we saw the first mobula rays jumping. On the reef we got company of two sealions but pics were not easy. The next day we went to the sealions first which was fun (took some macro there as well) and the second dive was a wreck dive again which I didn’t want to do. The third day I woke up sick and decided that diving was not a good idea. I went along anyway because the second dive was supposed to be whaleshark snorkelling. I can tell you that being on a boat when everyone comes out of the water with that big smile on their faces because the sealions were so playful that morning is not a good feeling. We ate on the boat as we had to go back to La Paz to get our slot for the whaleshark snorkelling. In between we saw mobula rays jumping again and a big school of dolphins… here are the underwater pics – overwater will follow later…
