The world‘s finest diving


Valentina is 38-meters (130-feet). She accommodates up to 20 guests in 10 cabins and dives the Sea of Cortez from the Bay of La Paz and Socorro from Puerto Los Cabos.

A word from Dom: “This powerful vessel has what it takes to ride comfortably through the sometimes rough waters of the eastern Pacific. Her interior is a bit dated but the warmth of the welcome on board is something that never goes out of style.” Dominick Macan
