Cabo San Lucas Marine Park
Just a 10 minute boat ride, the Cabo San Lucas Marine Park features clear and calm waters. You can swim with large schools of tropical fish, enjoy the playful antics of the resident sea lions, or adventure out on a shark dive, and so much more. One of our favourite highlights of diving in Cabo San Lucas is to swim with large schools of migrating Mobula Rays. Tens of thousands of Mobulas show up every spring and autumn when the water begins to change temperatures. They can often be seen bursting out from the water doing, desperately flapping their wings, performing backflips, totally showing off their acrobatic skills, as they search for mates. Divers can also swim with a diverse amount of other ocean creatures such as; schools of snapper, white tip sharks, tornados of sardines, turtles, eels, puffers, groupers, sea horses, tiny nudibranchs, frogfish and much more – check out our Marine Wildlife Calendar to see who’s around and when!
The Cabo San Lucas Marine Park contains some incredible dive sites. One of Team Ninja’s favourites is Land’s End, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Here you may find yourself surrounded by schools of jacks, butterfly fish, and rays. You can also encounter our playful California Sea Lions at Land’s End. These curious salty sea dogs love to investigate divers. Not far from Land’s End is Neptune’s Finger, where you can find the biggest sandfall of the Marine Park. A sandfall is a unique phenomenon where sand pours down a cliff in the same way a waterfall does, caused by a combination of special circumstances that occur in only a few other locations around the globe. Other dive sites within the Cabo San Lucas Marine Park include the South Wall, Middle Wall, and North Wall. Explore the rocky crevices of these walls and discover moray eels, lobsters, octopus, moorish idols, guitar fish, seahorses, frog fish and more. Lastly, dive at Pelican Rock, a rocky pinnacle that is a fantastic place for both day and night dives. The waters here are exceptionally calm and teeming with tropical fish, nudibranchs, sea turtles, porcupine fish and many others making a great place to learn to dive as well as for more advanced divers.
Looking for something different? Ask one our team to take you to one of our secret ninja spots! Visit the outer wall to spot big game fish and schools of rays. Or check out Ninja Rock, a secret pinnacle that reaches up from the sea bottom away from the main sites. If you’re an experienced diver and feeling adventurous Team Ninja can even take you out exploring some of our uncharted areas.
