Cabo diving is some of the best in the world

 

 

Cabo Diving


The Cabo San Lucas Bay provides excellent diving conditions. In fact, the Sea of Cortez is considered to be one of the most fertile bodies of water in the world. A deep submarine trench closely follows the bay and creates an unusual marine environment that attracts an abundance of marine life. Here the water is warm and the currents are gentle. Cabo is unique in that several great snorkeling and scuba diving sites are only a 15 to 25 minute boat ride from the downtown marina.

Whether you are an experience diver or just a beginner, you will find dive areas to suit all levels, from shallow to deep. Large congregations of fish are seen on the rocky slopes covered with gorgonians and graceful sea fans. Sea lions, turtles, eels and huge gropers are common sights here.

Divers with experience below 30 meters might want to see the vast submarine canyon which starts just 164 feet off Playa del Amor. This canyon is famous for its 'sandfalls', which are streams of sand tumbling over the canyon rim, forming sand rivers between large rock formations. At about 40 meters they become sheer granite walls, dropping vertically for over 9,000 feet. This amazing phenomenon was first documented by Scripps Institute of Oceanography in 1960. Since then it has been documented by Jacque Cousteau's expeditions. The edges of the canyon walls are covered with marine life and colorful coral, attracting all types of tropical fish not ordinarily seen so close to shore.
