Cabo Shark Dive/Snorkeling Tour

A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE IN TOTAL COMFORT AND SAFETY

Our awesome shark dive and snorkeling tours occur offshore, in the blue waters of the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean. Our exclusive dive sites are the best places to sight the amazing marine wildlife of Baja California Sur. The sites of our regular half day tours are located only 30 minutes boat ride from the Marina, with a nice and comfortable super panga or fisherman yacht, safe and relax! Once in the water, we have all time we want to swim with sharks, the duration of the experience depends from how long the sharks want to stay around, and usually the stay for a very long time!

 

Here the Northern California current, the Southern California countercurrent and a strong coastal upwelling work together to create a marine environment with an incredible biodiversity, making CABO SAN LUCAS: THE BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO SNORKEL AND FREE DIVE WITH THE SMOOTH HAMMERHEADS (Sphyrna zigaena) AND WITH MAKO SHARKS (Isurus oxyrinchus) The smooth hammerhead is a pelagic shark that lives close to the surface and migrate to Cabo in large number in March  for mating and feeding. Is a rare and magnificent shark that can grow over 12ft! The mako shark is the fastest shark in the world, pure adrenaline, with an average size of 6 ft!

 

Visibility varies a lot during the whole season, from 60 to 100 feet. The water temperature is 70-80 f (Jan-MaY) and 75-90 f(Jun-Dec)

 

"not only sharks... During our shark dive tour,  we always look in the surface for PELAGIC ACTION OR BAIT BALLS. We have high chance to jump in the water with other big marine animals like stripped marlin, mahi mahi, wahoo,  dolphins,  sealions & other big marine mammals.... everything can show up!"

 

THE OCEAN ONLY FOR US!

Since Cabo Shark Dive is the first, one and only shark diving company here, and since we discover most of our shark dive locations, we are always the only dive boat in the spots during our shark dive tours.

Observation of  the behaviour of different species of shark

 

Identify important concentration points ("hotspots") of sharks and other pelagic species such as preferential habitat of these species in the area, in relation to the distance to shore

 

Evaluate the capacity and potential of the region as a possible site for shark watching as alternative to fishing, to decrease the fishing pressure in the area

The Cabo Shark Dive experience is highly recommended to underwater photographers and videographers, shark lovers, thrill seekers and to everyone who wants to live a once in a lifetime experience.
