Scuba Diving in Cabo Pulmo

Cabo Pulmo, located off the beaten path and home to a diverse reef ecosystem.  Famous for it's schooling jacks and bull shark encounters.

Cabo Pulmo is a unique dive destination, almost off the grid and home to a successful marine reserve. It's known for it's schooling jacks, bull sharks and is home to juvenile sharks, humpback whales and a healthy population of reef fish. There are about ten dive sites in the park including the El Vencedor wreck. Cabo Pulmo is located on the eastern side of the Baja peninsula, roughly a 2 hour drive from both La Paz and Cabo San Lucas.

Cabo Pulmo is a managed reserve and has more conservative regulations for diving than other places in Mexico. Group sizes are limited, maximum 50 minutes of bottom time and dive sites are on a rotation. Simply translated this means great diving but we can't guarantee which dive site you will visit during one of our tours. If your aim is to dive the school of jacks please contact us and we will do our best to get you out to that dive site. It's best to give yourself a window of opportunity and plan your trip so you can be flexible. The maximum group size is six divers for any scheduled dive trip, this includes the divemaster.
