Scuba Diving

Scuba diving in Los Cabos is one of the most unique experiences the region has to offer. The warm water, mixed with the great visibility, make it a great location for both first time divers and seasoned veterans. As with the many water excursions in Los Cabos, diving companies take patrons either out into the sea, or into the coastal inlets, to explore the corals and fish the regions offer. Based on your comfort level, both options offer a day of fun that will never be forgotten. Almost all diving companies in Los Cabos have gear available for rent, so you don’t need to worry about bringing anything other than a swimsuit. As with any diving or snorkeling region, you’ll want to make sure you hit all the iconic dive sites. With all the options available, let’s take a look below at some of the most notable places to dive while in the area.

Lover’s Beach
Playa del Amor (Lover’s Beach) is a great spot for new divers looking to “get their feet wet” in diving. With calm waters that are very swimmable, and shallow enough to make any novice diver feel comfortable in their environment, the beach sits near the edge of the peninsula, which provides for a plethora of sea life to explore when underwater. While it can be slightly hard to reach, Lover’s Beach is sure to be a worthy diving destination in Los Cabos.
Pelican Rock
Similar to Lover’s Beach, Pelican Rock is known for its calm waters and plethora of sea creatures. Unlike Lover’s Beach, however, the water can get very deep, and is filled with canyons and sharp drop offs. The coral reef itself starts at about 10 feet deep, and gradually goes down as far as 65 feet, before dropping off into the abyss. Some large schools of fish that frequent the area are sea bass, snappers, scorpion fish, porcupine, and puffer fish. Eels and a variety of rays are also residents of the area.
Neptune’s Finger
Neptune’s Finger actually consists of two of the biggest coral reefs in Los Cabos, and ranges in depth from 10 to over 500 feet. The biggest sandfall in all of Los Cabos is located here – a must-see for any experienced diver looking to see something unique to the region. Some sea creatures that call this area home include goatfish, machetes, turtles, groupers manta rays, yellow tail and even the infamous mola molas.
