Diving the Seamount 

Twenty miles off the arid coast of Baja California an underwater oasis beckons. Known by generations of Mexican Indians as a source of energy and strength, its renown has attracted a loose following of itinerant travelers determined to discover its secret. Slowly the seamount reveals her secret, but will that be enough for these travelers to overcome the trappings of a modern society?

Author Tom Rapko's novel Diving The Seamount is shooting up the best seller lists and he has recently launched TheSeamount.com based on his scuba diving experiences and focusing on this single dive site.

An underwater volcano some twenty miles North by North East of La Paz, Mexico in 65-120 ft. of water, the Marisla Seamount, also known as El Bajo, is a spectacular place filled with some of the most fabulous pelagics a diver could ever hope to encounter.

Besides the diving, which is described as simply magical, the location of the Seamount in an isolated region of the Sea of Cortez adds to the experience; Tom Rapko declares that it is his favorite dive site on Earth and that he grudgingly shares it, hoping that further knowledge of its existence will lead to state-sanctioned protection by the Mexican Federal government.
