Punta Martir is a remote dive site located in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico, and is known for its unique underwater topography and diverse marine life. Underwater, divers will encounter a combination of walls, pinnacles, and sandy flats, with depths ranging from 20 to 100 feet (6 to 30 meters). The walls at Punta Martir are covered in colorful soft and hard corals, and large schools of fish such as snappers, jacks, and grunts can be seen swimming along the currents


When To Go Diving

The best time to dive at Punta Martir is between July and November, which is considered the peak season. During this period, the water temperature ranges from 26 to 30°C (79 to 86°F), and the visibility is excellent, up to 100 feet (30 meters) or more. This makes for optimal diving conditions and allows for the best opportunities to spot the diverse marine life at the site, including the oceanic manta ray. It's important to note that while the peak season offers ideal diving conditions, the area is known for strong currents, making it more suitable for experienced divers. It's also worth noting that weather conditions can affect diving conditions, so it's important to check the weather forecast before planning a trip to Punta Martir

One of the highlights of diving at Punta Martir is the opportunity to see the oceanic manta ray, which is known to frequent the area. These gentle giants can reach a wingspan of up to 20 feet (6 meters) and are a sight to behold as they glide effortlessly through the water. Other marine species that can be found at Punta Martir include various species of sharks such as the hammerhead shark, silky shark, and Galapagos shark. Sea turtles, schools of barracudas, and octopuses are also commonly spotted during dives
