Best Scuba Diving Sites in Cabo San Lucas

Jacques Cousteau raved about the sea life he discovered in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico, calling it “the world’s richest sea.” And we can tell you – there’s awesome scuba diving in Cabo San Lucas!

The Sea of Cortez (also called the Gulf of California) is the 700-mile-long sea of water hugged by the Baja Peninsula on one side and mainland Mexico on the other.

Land’s End

Land’s End is one of the most popular local dive sites in Los Cabos because it’s so close to the Cabo San Lucas Marina. Land’s End is just a 5- to 10-minute panga or boat ride away.

The Corridor

The Tourist Corridor is the 20-mile stretch of coastline running between the two main Los Cabos towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.

Gordo Banks

Schools of hammerhead sharks are the big draw, inviting experienced divers to sink deep into open blue water at Gordo Banks. You may also spot giant manta rays and whale sharks.

Diving La Paz

Another one of the best Cabo scuba diving activities is to dive with sea lions at Los Islotes near La Paz, about a two-hour drive northeast of Cabo San Lucas.
