Scuba Diving & Freediving in Cabo San Lucas

Our PADI 5 Star Dive Center is located in Cabo San Lucas which lies at the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula. This unique geographic location places it right where the mighty Pacific Ocean meets the beautiful Sea of Cortez. The meeting of these two bodies of water creates an incredible environment for diving boasting thousands of species of invertebrates, over 900 species of fish, and a multitude of marine mammals. Throughout the year we are blessed with the migrations of multiple shark species, humpback whales, bait balls, and one of the largest migrations of rays on the planet – the acrobatic mobula rays.

At Dive Ninjas we pride ourselves on setting a new standard for the dive industry. We don’t see ourselves as a dive shop, but instead a unique purveyor of experiences centered around marine conservation, education, research, and most importantly, a passionate love for the ocean and all its fun inhabitants. We offer a delicious menu of multi-day dive packages and mini expeditions, as well as private guided scuba diving and freediving tours. Below you’ll find our list of Los Cabos scuba diving & tours that we offer at our home base in downtown Cabo San Lucas. Scroll down to the bottom to check out the quick facts and our Cabo San Lucas photo gallery. Then give us a shout so we can start planning your dive expedition in beautiful Baja!
