About Bahia Asuncion

Half way down the west coast of the Baja Peninsula, is the Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve, where the picturesque fishing village of Bahia Asuncion is located.  The 3,500 residents rely on the two fishing cooperatives in town that harvest abalone, lobster, clams, giant sea snails and many species of fish.

Although Asuncion still has the feel of a small town, it has all the amenities of a bigger center including, gas station, hospital, pharmacy, grocery store, water purification plant, and hardware stores to name a few.

The kelp forests surrounding the area, make for an unforgettable dive.  Due to the fact that Asuncion is located in a biosphere reserve, there is an abundance of underwater wildlife to view.  Pacific Explorers is dedicated in keeping the ecological balance of this biosphere reserve.  As such, we employ the "look but don't touch" method of diving.  We are working hard with the Mexican Government to ensure that nothing will harm this natural wonder.

During your stay, make sure you ask about visiting one of the many islands just a boat ride away.  Ther you are able to visit with one of the many sea lion colonies.  There are over 7,500 sea lions that make their home in this area.

While staying in Asuncion we recommend you stay in one of the many guest houses that Shari and Juan have available.  They have accommodations that will fit any budget and also have a fishing charter business that we highly recommend.  Please check out www.bahiaasuncion.com for rates and availability.

San Roque is one of the best places to shore dive in the area.  The kelp forest is home to an abundance of fish such as Halibut, Sheep Head, and many different reef fish.

The bay offers a wonderful swim location, that is suitable for children of all ages.
