A real slice of paradise, the Sea of Cortez is highly regarded for its crystal-clear waters, unique coastal landscape and marine life which makes the region a must for wildlife lovers, who can see gray whales, sea lions, whale sharks and even humpback whales.

With years where there’s no annual rainfall at all, you’re guaranteed excellent weather as you relax in the sun on white sand beaches or visit chic resorts that make the area a playground for the rich and famous.

Sail to the secluded islands to be found in this beautiful corner of Mexico to experience many hidden gems. Unwind in peaceful solitude, or go snorkeling to explore a picture perfect underwater world. 

Taking a trip on land during your Mexico yacht charter will give you the chance to participate in various exciting outdoor activities, from horse riding and hiking to mountain biking and zip-lining.  

If you’re an avid sailor with a spirit of adventure, we can promise you the waters of the Sea of Cortez will certainly not disappoint.

Isla Espíritu Santo

An outcrop in the Sea of Cortez, Isla Espíritu Santo is a Unesco World Heritage Biosphere Reserve, surrounded by clear, deep waters full of shoals of the most amazing tropical fish and sea lions. Out of the sea it has wide stretches of untouched beaches.

Isla San Francisco

Known for its stunning marine life, on Isla San Francisco you can snorkel to see starfish, octopus and sea turtles. The island also has beautiful beaches and remarkable salt flats to explore.

La Ventana

Beside a beautiful bay just south of our base in La Paz, you’ll find this fishing which, because of its strong winter winds, has become a haven for kite surfers. Across the water, there’s Isla Cerralvo, known as Jacques Cousteau Island, who called the Sea of Cortez ‘the world’s aquarium’.

Guaymas

Take a trip to a pearl farm to discover how Cortez Pearls are harvested, or go diving, kayaking and snorkeling on the attractive beaches of Guaymas.

Balandra

Almost circular in shape and surrounded by sand dunes, Balandra Bay may very well be the most beautiful in Mexico, as well as being one of the calmest. In brilliant blue water, which is never more than waist deep, you can see harmless manta rays.

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”

Jonathan

Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.

David

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC

Katie

Tahiti Crewed Premium

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.

Charlie

British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.
