The Sea of Cortez is one of imposing beauty, dramatically framed by islands with broken edges and tall cliffs and sandy beaches, contrasting with the desert’s reflections and turquoise water surrounding them. Diverse shapes and colors compliment marine and bird life. The abundance of marine life associated with spectacular submarine views and water transparency make the area a divers’ paradise.
We will be operating in 3 different areas of the Sea of Cortez depending on the time of year.
- The Bay of La Paz in the south;
- Loreto National Marine Park mid-way up the peninsula;
- Bahia de Los Angeles and the Midriff Islands in the north.
We booked the 7 night liveaboard package on The Zeppelin. Every part of our adventure and experience exceeded expectations.
Imagine spreading out your mat on the foredeck of Zeppelin with turquoise blue water surrounding you. Your senses come alive with the breezes of the Sea on your skin, the sweet aroma of local flowers from the nearby shoreline and the sounds of singing birds in the trees. This is the wonderful blend of nature and yoga at its finest. Now you can truly connect your mind, body and breath as you enjoy your practice. While you are a guest on Zeppelin you can do your own practice each morning or be led in a practice by Elly, Certified Yoga Teacher.

Liveaboard Diving with Zeppelin
Are you ready for some boat lingo... did you know boats are called ‘she’? Zeppelin is 47 feet overall with 15 feet of beam (width), center cockpit (area that you steer from and has seating) and a flush deck forward (flat open area). The combination of the wide beam and center cockpit design provides a large, comfortable living space and the flush deck makes for a terrific area for lounging, yoga and viewing ocean life. The design also gives us three sleeping cabins, two heads (bathrooms) both with showers, a large galley (kitchen) and spacious main saloon (living/dining room). The cockpit is partially enclosed by a fixed windshield with side glass panels and the hard top can be enclosed by canvas and clear panels. This provides protection from the sun, wind, rain and spray making her comfortable in all sea conditions.
Other goodies include – 2 solar panels (power from the sun), generator (more power), water maker (from salt to drinking water..very cool), large BBQ, outdoor shower, swim platform with boarding ladder (getting from the water onto the swim platform), deck chairs and tables, 2 paddle boards, water noodles (more lounging or aqua fit), tandem ocean kayak, dive compressor, tanks, weights and dive gear.
Accommodations onboard Zeppelin
The sleeping accommodations on Zeppelin consist of 3 cabins, including a large master cabin with full queen size bed, vanity, drawers for clothes and ensuite bathroom; a passageway cabin with 2 bunk beds and shelving for clothes; and a forward cabin with a double berth, drawers for clothes, and ensuite bathroom. Cabins are assigned based on the number of guests and whether the group is singles or couples. All the cabins have fans & opening hatches with screens so there is good ventilation. The cabins are separate from the main living space and you can close the doors for privacy. Guests share the 2 bathrooms.
