The meeting point is just a short walking distance from the cruise ship terminal. Your guides will be waiting, get you checked in and then into the transportation for a short 45-minute drive, a beautiful adventure in itself.
Driving through the city, outskirts and along a scenic highway, you will experience sights and sounds of everyday life of the locals. Your guide will be giving you information along the way as you head to the dive base. Through the hills and along the coast, your driver will take you off the beaten path to the most pristine, beautiful cove that will leave you breathless.
Once at Playa Arbolitas (Little Trees Beach), the PADI certified dive master will pass out your dive equipment, go over some basic instruction and the dive plan of the day. Then they will lead you into the water to explore the underwater world full of magic and mystery on your one tank dive. On this excursion, you will get up close and personal with lots to see and explore including kelp forests, walls, reefs and sea mounds teeming with vibrant colors full of marine life.
The sea floor is carpeted with life including algae, sea anemones, sponges, sun stars, bat stars, nudibranchs and much more. All divers should use caution with buoyancy control and always be aware of what is below them so not to damage, injure or kill the marine life. The dive master will be with you for the entire dive.
When you return back to the beach where you started, the transportation will take you back to town where you will enjoy a traditional cultural lunch of the most amazing and delicious fish tacos! Guests may choose to shop, explore and return to the ship at their leisure.
Wet suits are included. Ensenada Beaches sea temperatures range - 19 to 23C / 66 to 73F, warmest in September and lowest in February.
