Diving in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas lies at the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula. This unique geographic location places it right where the mighty Pacific Ocean meets the 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 acrobatic mobula rays.

At Dive Ninjas we recognize people want more than the traditional bog standard dive package. We pride ourselves on setting the bar higher and providing our guests with a more substantial quality experience. So you’ll never be on cattle boats packed with divers, or in huge groups, or see our staff passing out plastic water bottles between dives. We care about your experience and our oceans. 

Below you’ll find our Los Cabos scuba diving mini expeditions and 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!
