Today I taught a "Resort Course" to a new friend Remi. Remi had never scuba dived before. He and his gal Veronique came to dive Cabo Pulmo on their way from Los Cabos to La Paz. Veronique was a certified PADI open water diver so she elected to embark on a certified divers boat (good choice). After a thorough briefing, Remi & I jumped on a snorkel tour boat to head out and dive Cabo Pulmo's famous Sea Lion Colony. As we motored out to sea our captain (Gato) spotted a school of Skipjacks (more or less an amber jack fish). Not only a school but a bait ball of at least 3000 fish. We donned snorkel gear and jumped in. So many fish that you could almost swear you can smell them through the water. It was incredible, to say the least. Next, off to dive cabo pulmo's sea lion colony. This time we were detoured by 4 different sightings of humpback whales, - mama's and calves. Watching them dive when their tails come completey out of the ocean as a waterfall cascades of it can only
be described as majestic. Finally we made it to the sea lion colony. We geared up, back rolled in and after a few surface skills we made our descent to approximately 15'...We found a platform to kneel, completed a few more skills and off we were descending to 40' for Remi's first time scuba diving. The guy was having so much fun. Even through the mask and regulator I could see that he was smiling and in awe. We spotted 2 turtles, 7 sea lions and 2 mantas...This was impressive even for me. Now Remi & Veronique are on their way to La Paz where I'm sure they'll keep diving.
My husband and I did the Cabo Snorkeling Tour with Cabo Pulmo Dive Center at the Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park.They picked us up at Mykonos in San Jose Del Cabo, it was a little under 1 1/2 hours drive from there to the park. We were suited up with wet suits and inflatable life vests, and headed out in a panga with our guide and the driver. We say manta rays, two grey whales and a calf that was frolicking in the waves - an inbelievable sight! The sea lion colony was awesome!! They were so playful, and loved to swim circles around you and blow bubbles, they were hilarious. The coral was beautiful and plenty of tropical fish. At the end of cabo snorkeling tour, we had a delcious lunch (included in the tour fee) and then the drive back to our resort.
If I ever return to Cabo or San Jose del Cabo I would definitley take this tour again! The staff were very friendly and very knowledgable, not one bad thing about it!
Above is a lovely blog from one of our recent customers who took our cabo snorkel tour. We here at Cabo Pulmo Dive Center not only arrange snorkel and dive tours for scheduled/reserved customers, but we also take walk-ins and provide day trips for those staying in Los Cabos.

Tell'em Rick sent ya!!!
“Cabo Pulmo Dive Center Was the Place For Us” Reviewed January 31, 2012 My husband and I were back in Cabo Pulmo, my favorite place in the world, for diving & snorkeling. We had received our advanced open water certificate with Rick in July, and wanted to come back to see the whales and sharks that migrate around the Baja during the winter. During our dive we saw schools of rays, white tipped shark, sea fans, and lots of parrot fish. Captain Memo knew exactly where to drop us, and pick us up. He is excellant at navigating around the reef. He also took us by to see where the tiger sharks are mating. It was thrilling to see the giant sharks cruise under our boat, but then we saw something even more spectacular! The tiger sharks had caught a pelican, and a feeding frenzy ensued.
That was really cool! Since it was January, we had a couple of days that
we couldn't dive because of the wind. However, Rick gave us great tips on where to go to get out of the wind and hang out. The snorkeling is unbelievable! We rented most of our gear from the Dive Center. The equipment was in perfect shape. Since the water temperature was so cold, I got to try out a 7 mm hoodie. It kept me nice and warm. Cabo Pulmo Dive Center has everything you need to dive. They even have a pool next to the center where you can get your certification. They have a number of talented instructors who can get you educated and in the water. I feel extremely confident recommending the Dive Center to anyone. We had most of our meals at the restaurant
upstairs while we stayed in Cabo Pulmo. It is not the typical fair that one would expect to find in a small town. Along with tortilla soup (awesome!) and burritos, we had coconut shrimp, seafood pasta, pizza, and steak. They also had a nice wine selection in addition to beer and margaritas. And they are one of the few places in town who take credit cards! We had a great time in the evening hanging out in the restaurant/bar above the dive center, and getting to know the people who live and vacation in Cabo Pulmo. Visited January 2012
The current snorkel & dive cabo conditions during the first part of January 2012 are absolutely amazing here at Cabo Pulmo
. Just yesterday one of our PADI
Instructors came back from a Cabo Pulmo dive tour and said "we saw everything except for whale sharks today". The dive customers returned wide eyed with big smiles claiming to have spotted 12 dolphins, 3 orcas, & 100s of mantas, and this was just during the surface interval. Underwater, along with the usual suspects we spotted a white tip shark, turtles (not just one) and bat rays flying by unaffected by the divers. People are starting to catch on that Cabo Pulmo is a relatively undiscovered paradise for diving
, biking and hiking
. Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort is a "must visit" destination resort. Our family atmosphere and friendly staff
are ready to welcome you and make your vacation experience one of the best experiences of your life.
I went for
a dive this morning to train and orientate one of our new PADI Instructors (Antonio
). It was his first dive here. We made our descent into a school of grouper, golden grouper and saw 4 mammoth grouper (300-400lbs). The dive continued with huge pacific sting-rays, swarms of puffer fish, grunts by the 1000s, beautiful school of porkfish, trumpet fish (cornet fish), even a turtle. After 40 mins or so we started our ascent to make a safety stop at 15ft for 3 mins when all of a sudden approximately 800 manta rays swam by lasting the whole safety stop. I've been diving here for 2 years, and it never gets old, or seases to amaze me.
It was a private dive trip in Cabo Pulmo's national marine park with just the owners of Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort, Maribel and I and our good friends from Sun Valley ID, Mike and Becky Brooks. We went out to find the sharks that have been seen in the past outside of "The deep Reef". We bought Pete too who is an instructor along to help. ( Park Regulations ).
We dove down to 80 feet and then continued out to 95 feet in the sand. Pete was telling us that there were sharks out there that we couldn't see just yet, then suddenly a big bull shark about 8-10 feet came in for a look at all the plastic bottle crunching going on. Before we knew it, more showed up (maybe 6 or more) then they were out of site. One came up to me as I coasted into him, he met me head on as i kicked slightly toward him (he came extremely close within 5 feet!) they circled us for a while in about 40 feet of visibility. What a nice surprise, diving in Cabo Pulmo is incredible!
Next dive site was called 'El Cantil". We had quite a pleasant dive at about 50 feet. 85 degree water temp and abundance of large Dogtooth snappers weighing 4-50 pounds. Large schools of bait fish and tons of Cabrilla too. Life was super abundant all around us.
Excellent dive today!!!
