Bird Island - Mexico

Bird Island is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Mexico. This dive site has an average rating of 3.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers. The average visibility is 41-50ft/12-15m.

A haven for Sea Lions with other typical Sea of Cortez life.

Dive boats only go if they have minimum number of divers, usually 3/4 so better if you are with a group.


Bird Island (Isla San Jorge). Located 25 miles (40 km) southwest along the coast, this tiny island is home to 3,100 California sea lions, the largest colony in the Sea of Cortez. Barely three-fourths of a mile long and one-fourth of a mile at its widest point, its entire 150-foot (46-m) height is painted in the white guano of resident sea birds. Visiting boaters are serenaded by the continual squawking of boobies, pelicans and tropic birds accentuated by barking sea lions, in contrast to the relatively silent underwater ballet of the graceful marine mammals.
