Description and details
Diving on the M/V Valentina in Mexico
Expect to dive the wondrous deep seas of Baja California Peninsular in this cruiser package. And with the recent renovation last 2013, we completely assure that this trip is 100% safe and memorable. Originally built in 1999, the Valentina still holds its complete essence despite being renovated.
Valentina can cater to any type of divers, albeit casual or professional. We heavily assure you that we have the right gears and instructors to unleash that inner beast inside you.
10 cabins are up for accommodation, perfect for groups and professional divers. We offer one Deluxe Double Cabin with an inclusion of a double bed. Couples who want luxury would find this one as a great steal. Two cabins are dedicated and ideal for couples and even solo travelers. These two Deluxe Double Cabins have one double bed and another single bed. Groups may enjoy the seven Deluxe Twin Cabins that the cruiser is offering.
Alongside the almost perfect choice for accommodation, the M/V Victoria offers an exotic and varied menu from various international cuisines. Some examples are Asian, European, and Mexican dishes.
For lounging and social interactions, an open bar is offered to all the guest, where they can chit-chat and have a glass of wine or a pint of beer. Your choice!
Transfer and transportation fees are completely shouldered by us. This provides more breathing room to the guest and removes any kind of underlying anxiety.
Diving equipment and instructors are also included! This is for the guests to completely ignore the technical stuff and focus more on reaching the docking point.
Toiletries, deck towels, and cabin towels are also provided to lessen the baggage that the guests might bring. For an additional amenity and to improve communication, Wi-Fi internet is installed onboard.
August to November is the perfect time to explore the Sea of Cortez because of active marine life. Whale sharks are definitely there, so expect to be amazed. Schools of fishes can also be seen at this time of the year.
Besides the captivating marine life that the Sea of Cortez offers, diving should always be the top priority. The water offers a lot of diving spots determined to be safe and secured by professional divers that are on board. These professionals are also tasked to maintain the safety and security of passengers and divers.
The primary departure harbor would be Marina La Paz.
Cabo San Lucas would be the arrival harbor and once all set, General Manuel Marquez De Leon Intl. would still be the airport perfect for return.
This route is easy to understand and familiarize with.
