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.
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

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
