Diving & snorkeling
For lovers of the underwater world, Cabo is a wonderful place to go snorkeling and diving. Perhaps the best spot for easy access snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas is Playa Chileno. This beautiful white sand beach provides amazing underwater wildlife as soon as you step into the ocean. Simply go down to the main beach area and then venture to the right of the beach a bit over the rocks. Once there, head into the water and be amazed. For beginners, be careful of currents which can sometimes be strong and also tidal conditions which can sometimes leave the reef shallow and exposed. For experienced divers looking for truly unique options outside of Cabo itself, consider Cabo Pulmo National Park or La Paz. Cabo Pulmo National Park is a marine protected area with an unbelievable underwater biodiversity. Divers relish the chance to see whale sharks, humpback whales, bullsharks, hammerhead sharks, and tigersharks at the many famous divesites here. For a more playful option consider doing the sea lion dive in the Sea of Cortez near La Paz. We promise you, swimming and playing with young sea lion pups is a remarkable experience that you will never forget. If you really want to experience the best that Cabo has to offer, an underwater expedition simply cannot be missed!
With such incredible underwater biodiversity, it is no surprise that Cabo is an absolute mecca for fishing. While there are many shore fishing spots available, the real excitement starts with a deep-sea fishing expedition. Test your skills and see if you can bring home a catch of marlin, sailfish, tuna, dorado, wahoo, or many other species. At the Cabo San Lucas Marina boats leave every morning at sunrise, so make sure to book a trip with one of the many fishing companies.
