Snorkel & Dive Cabo Current Conditions for January

 
diving caboThe 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, snorkeling, 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.

Hi! My husband and I are coming down at the end of January and want to make sure we get a couple days at Cabo Pulmo. I work for an organization called Ocean Conservancy here in the States, specifically on MPAs, so I am excited to check out CP.  
 
But I am also pregnant and my husband isn't certified to dive, so we'll be limited to snorkeling. My question is: is it still worth it and still phenomenal? I hope so! 
 
Thanks, 
samantha

I'm a snorkeler, I don't dive, but have snorkeled in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Gulf of Mexico and there is no better place to snorkel than Cabo Pulmo. Have the boat take you to La Serenita, and the drivers will know where else you should get in the water. The rays alone are worth going for, and you can kayak out to watch them jump at this time of year. Have fun!

Hi there, 
 
My girlfriend are traveling to Cabo Pulmo in mid February and cannot wait to dive! Is there wildlife in particular that we can anticipate seeing in February? Also, can you provide a guess at what the water temperatures will be. I'm used to drysuit diving in BC, but I just want to get some indication of what the February temperatures typically are so that we can mentally prepare. Thanks! So excited!

Hi David...In February you can expect to see humpback whales and what we call "flying mantas" They are actually called Mobula Rays, and are part of the Manta Ray family. They have a wing span of approx 4' and they are constantly jumping out of the ocean and belly flopping. Its quite a spectacle. Check our websitewww.cabopulmo.com for photos. Water temps will range from 70 to 74 F with vis from 20 to 60' We use 7mm wetsuits during this season which can be rented for 5usd a day.
