Scuba diving is one of the most popular activities here. There are a sufficient amount of locations for which you can go scuba diving here, with varying levels of difficulty.

A place to dive can be found for all divers, from beginners to advanced, whereby they can explore the waters which surround the area.

During the summer months Orcas, Giant Pacific Mantas, and schools of 200 to 300 Manta Rays can very often be seen.

There are also the Sea Lions, enormous schools of fish, and White Tip sharks that interact with divers.

There are over seventeen types of living corals located between San Jose Del Cabo, Cabo Pulmo and Cabo San Lucas.
