Welcome Aboard!

We are a team of Professional Divers and diving trip experts, and we are dedicated to introduce you to new destinations with ocean and culture based on our staffs many years of combined diving experience.

Your satisfied smile is what moves us forward. We have pride in new and exciting routes developed by our experienced Guides, the variety of food prepared by our Chef, service provided by the staff on board, and the Japanese hospitality provided by the headquarters throughout your trip.

We strive to offer the best service and develop the best routes from our experience, while maintaining the highest safety standards. With our branch office in Los Angeles, we became Pioneers that introduced Mexico and Central America to Japanese Scuba Divers. At the same time, we started developing the Sea of Cortez as a destination for the cruise line. Fun Baja and Club Azul established a co-operation in Baja California, Mexico in 2000 and have a trusting partnership that continues until today. In 2013, we established Fun Azul Fleet, cruise lines around Socorro Island, Sea of Cortez. In Mexico, we obtained “M/V Valentina” which is owned and operated by ourselves. Fun Baja manages the supply and diving service locally in Mexico.
