Cabo Shark Dive/Snorkeling Tour

The CABO SHARK SNORKELING TOUR is our most popular tour, no experience is needed, all gear and PROFESSIONAL PICTURES ARE PROVIDED. On this trips you will snorkel and free dive with pelagic sharks out of the cage under the professional guidance and supervision of our trusted shark guides and sharks behavioural experts. On all our tours we cater to both professionals and novices alike so no matter what your skill or experience level is, we will make the trip fun and enjoyable for you.
Our awesome shark dive and snorkeling tours occur just few miles 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 25 minutes boat ride from the Marina, safe and relax! Before leaving the dock we will provide the snorkelling gear to all our guests, to make sure that everyone has there right gear with the right size! Once on the spot our shark guide will give a detailed briefing explaining safety rules, how to use the snorkelling gear properly and how to interact with sharks in the best way!

Our experienced guides are always the first entering the water and the last to exit, with a constant and direct supervision of the snorkelers, they will ensure the best and safe interaction as possible, making all our guest fell comfortable during all the experience.  Anything you need in and out of the water, just ask our guides, they are always ready to help!
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!

If you want to stay dry we have another option for you: SHARK WATCHING TOUR, where you can enjoy the thrill and excitement of seeing sharks up close and learning about them from the deck of our comfortable boat.
The SHARK WATCHING TOUR is designed for families and groups of people that want to go out and see sharks in the wild without getting in the water or spending the whole day on the boat.
Shark Watching Tour are essentially the same as the Shark Snorkeling tour, the only difference being our guests simply watch the sharks from the boat instead of getting into the water.
To make our Shark Viewing trips more fun for our guests, we often use a surface bait line to bring the sharks right up to the surface next to the boat so close they often splash our guests with water. This allows our shark viewers a great chance to see these animals up close and personal without having to get in the water and still get in on all the action.


Diving and swimming with sharks is a safe, life-changing and addictive experience that makes you feel stronger, fearless and extremely happy!
ALL TOURS OPEN TO EVERYONE FROM BEGINNERS TO
PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS, no certification required
Professional underwater photos of your sharks encounter included
