Swimming with sharks in La Paz! A fun video from Pelagic Life.
From Pelagic Life:
“During one of Pelagic Life’s Open Ocean Safari we decided to move one of our expedition days to La Paz in search of warmer weather and abundance of sharks. Given the annual shark ban in Mexican waters during the months of May through July we went to a well known seamount in the Sea of Cortez in the Baja Peninsula in hopes of finding large congregation of pelagic sharks once very abundant in the area. To our surprise, with plenty of luck and perfect weather we managed to get over 7+ silky sharks in flat seas and blue waters. As far as we know this is the first time a shark dive using attraction has been performed with success in this seamount, which opens up the massive potential to increase the value of sharks through sustainable tourism in La Paz. All of our guests got comfortable with the silky shark bonanza with over 3 hours in the water. Some were even lucky enough to see some hammerhead sharks cruising in the distance below. The school of common dolphin and mobula mantas on our way to the seamount just added to the whole experience. To finish the day we swam for more than an hour with the sealion colony on our way back. A day to remember with our friends from Baja Adventure Co (bajaadventureco.com). Thank you for making this happen. June 6, 2016.
