Cabo Shark Dive/Snorkeling Tour

A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE IN TOTAL COMFORT AND SAFETY,
only 25 minutes boat ride from our dock!

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.
These trips get you up close and personal with the sharks of Cabo San Lucas from the comfort and safety of our seaworthy boats. Just thirty minutes from the dock and in the calm waters of the coastal Pacific ocean and See of Cortez. For shark viewing trips we offer morning and afternoon trips as well. This trip is a great way to spend half the day on the water and get to see one of nature’s greatest predators at work. Shark Watching Tour are essentially the same as the Shark Shark Tout, 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.

Ecology & Conservation

Cabo shark dive is deeply involved in shark conservation, our goal is made the sharks worth more alive than dead by bringing people swim safely with them. and increasing the demand of sharks eco-tourism. Cabo Shark Dive partners up with MEXICO AZUL FOUNDATION for monitoring pelagic shark’s population dynamics in the area. The collection of scientific data during shark tours has allowed us to perform the first formal inventory of species done for Cabo San Lucas, and to demonstrate the viability of touristic operations and citizen science as tools used for the establishment of baselines for these populations. Our main species of interest are: smooth
hammerhead shark, silky shark, blue shark and mako shark. Since 2016, we have performed more than 500 sighting records with more than 150 registers for mako sharks.

Ecological
Objectives

The shark dive and snorkelling tour also has strong ecological objectives:

Identify the main species and sex  of oceanic sharks in the area.

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

Education

Cabo shark dive welcomes and helps students from Universities of La Paz and Pelagios Kakunja to carry out the university thesis about the local shark species and complete their Marine Biology degree. We contribute to raise new generation of marine biologist and sharks lovers!

Collaboration with local communities
We work and support the local communities, especially local fishermen families. The local captains know the area better, during a shark tour they make 5 times the money the make while fishing so they can easily support their families and of course while they work with us they don’t kill any fish! this the best way to change their mind and convert fishing activities in eco-tourism activities. We have established close ties with various fishermen who are now beginning to change their habits and have become a valuable aid to successful expeditions
