NileGuide Expert tip:
Cabo Pulmo is one of the only living coral reefs in the Western Hemisphere, and although this is a seasonal dive, should be experienced by all visitors to Los Cabos.
Owner Devore Sherman has one of the oldest dive shops in San Lucas, and offers dive tours of local undersea landmarks, where you can interact with over 800 species of tropical marine life. The best of these tours include Sand Falls, where sand endlessly trickles over a wall into the depths of the Sea of Cortez, and the north, middle, and south walls in Bahia San Lucas. Tours of Gordo Banks and Cabo Pulmo are available, but only from July to November, as strong wind and waves make these dives inadvisable during the Winter and Spring. Cabo Pulmo is spectacular, one of a handful of living coral reefs in the Western Hemisphere. Baja Dive offers a number of PADI certifications, including Beginner/Open Water (400 USD), Advanced Open Water (350 USD), Rescue Diver (400 USD), and Dive Master/Master Diver (700 USD, with Dive Master for professionals, Master Diver for experienced amateurs). There is also a discovery dive for beginners that is only 85 USD, and includes gear. One tank dives are 45 USD, two tank dives are 65 USD, and include weights.
