MV Adventure

The Adventure is La Paz’s newest charter boat surpassing any other ship in its category. Originally built as a day cruiser, the Adventure underwent a live aboard conversion and started its international dive operation in September of 2011. What makes this ship unique and stand out among its competition is the professional input of its owners.

The owners are engineers and ship builders with 15 years of building, owning, and successfully operating charter boats in Cabo, San Lucas. It is with great pride that Panterra and the ship owners have partnered up to offer guests from around the world the best the Sea of Cortez has to offer.

The upper deck is ideal for wildlife viewing, relaxing with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and watching sunrises and sunsets in general group gatherings. Half the upper deck is covered so guests can be sheltered from the sun. The other half is not covered so guests can enjoy the sun.

One of the two accesses to the wheelhouse can be found forward of the upper deck. The bow offers a spacious area for a spectacular view of the sea and wildlife. Comfortable seating provides for a relaxing experience while underway. The companionway allows easy access to the bathrooms, showers, salon, and stern.

There are two separate bathroom facilities, one set for men and one set for women. Three showers are conveniently located in each bathroom facility. The salon is spacious, comfortable, and inviting. The entertainment area offers the comfort of home with a flat screen television that you can use to review the photos of the day.

The aft deck is designed for diving and snorkeling with benches and storage bins for guests. Thoughtfully designed to accommodate the needs of divers, snorkelers, and beachcombers, the swim grid also features two dive ladders. Steps away from the aft deck leading down to the swim grid makes it easy for getting on and off the ship, ideally designed for divers and snorkelers.

The stairs lead from the main deck salon to the lower deck cabins. Each stateroom bunk has its own reading lamp, plug in, and the mattresses are made of memory foam. The staterooms come equipped with air conditioning, sink, vanity, drawers, and cupboards for unpacking your suitcase.

November is a spectacular month to visit La Paz and cruise the Sea of Cortez. The crystal clear waters, sun-filled blue skies, and the beautiful warm temperature are a perfect blend for on board yoga, hiking, snorkeling, and wildlife encounters. Experiences like these are extraordinary and often life changing, leaving you with unforgettable memories of a lifetime.
