Scuba Diving Trips

Scuba Diving in the Sea of Cortez

Who knew that Los Cabos was full of such fascinating dive sites? The Sea of Cortez is home to many of Mexico’s most popular scuba diving locations and is often called “the Galapagos of Mexico” for its diversity. 
With beaches, sea caves, and several natural reefs, Los Cabos is one of Mexico's top scuba diving destinations. Filled with marine life and a host of amazing geological features at every turn, Cabo San Lucas diving is an experience that simply can’t be missed.

 

See our three most popular dive excursions below.

Where we Dive

Cabo San Lucas. The Cabo San Lucas marine reserve is home to a variety of marine life, including whales, dolphins, turtles, sea lions, and Rays. The dive sites that we visit are a short boat trip from the marina and include a sea lion colony, the Sand Falls at Pelican Rock, Neptune’s Finger, and the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas. 

 

Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park. Cabo Pulmo is a small, protected National Park in the Gulf of California that features some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling locations in the world due to its crystal blue waters and an abundance of marine life, home to over 12 dive sites for experienced divers. Cabo Pulmo is also home to the only coral reef in western North America—a great site to see flora and fauna genuinely unique to the region.  Whether you are developing new diver skills or adding immersions to your scuba log, the greater Cabo San Lucas region has a myriad of diving sites that you can enjoy according to your skill level. Just some of the dive sites we visit here include El Islote, El Bajo, Los Cantiles, and the shipwreck "El Colima'', which was a tuna boat sunk by a storm in 1939.

 

When to dive in Cabo

From December to May, the water off Cabo San Lucas is home to more than 40 different types of large marine mammals, including humpbacks and blue whales, sea lions, mobula rays, and even whale sharks. This is also the best time for divers of all levels to discover the beautiful corals and dynamic sea life. 

The water temperature varies year-round from 68°F in March to 84°F in August/September. Diving conditions are good year-round.
