Scuba diving is one of the top water activities in Cabo San Lucas. Located between the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Sea of Cortez to the east, Cabo San Lucas and the Baja Peninsula are surrounded by some of the world’s most fascinating and active underwater habitats. Scuba diving in Cabo is known for its large pelagic species including manta rays, hammerhead sharks and amberjacks. Plus, most of these underwater habitats are just a short boat ride from the shore, offering more diving time and less travel time to all scuba divers. The two main general sites are the Marine Preserve and the Coastal Corridor, and each of these offers a wide variety of underwater ecosystems to explore!
