El Bajo reef is arguably the most spectacular. This site is a great opportunity for U/W photography as you can expect to see turtles, large schooling groupers and snapper. Green jacks suddenly shoot by like bullets flying through the water. Rays hide in the sand and bull sharks can sometimes be seen further out in the sand. All of this might be accompanied by the love song of a Humpback Whale.
Enjoy diving above small canyons covered in sea fans and stag horn coral. Since Cabo Pulmo has become a protected area huge schools of fish congregate north of the reef. Mexican goat fish, snapper, pork fish and grouper make for a colourful array of life. Schools of huge dog tooth snapper live here. Keep your eyes open for the reef shark that lives in a small cave on the deeper side and rays flying by out in the sand.
One of the most popular dive sites created from the wreckage of a cargo boat that sunk 30 years ago. It is now a cleaning station for bull sharks and is also a shelter to impressive schools of snapper and large grouper. Amberjack, Pompano and Golden Trevally are commonly seen hunting smaller fish on the wreck. A consitently great dive and the unofficial bull shark dive site of Baja California. If there´s one 10ft jaw-dropping reason to go to Cabo Pulmo it´s to dive among these magnificent animals. The sharks swim slowly and peacefully. We encounter them approximately 75% of the time.
Floating somewhere between the coral reefs of the north and the rocky canyons in the south of the marine park awaits a huge school of big eye trevally Jacks. With a bit of luck and a keen eye a dark patch on the surface gives away the location for our descent directly into this tornado of schooling fish. This is one of the most iconic dive sites of Cabo Pulmo.
slopes steeply down from 25 feet, boulders and sand channels point into the abyss. The site is very protected from waves and is our ‘fall back’ dive site when conditions are rough.
There are schools of Butterfly, Angel, Damsel, Wrasse and Goat fish followed by Grouper, Jacks and Coronet fish. Small coral formations dot the rocks that hide Eels, Puffer and Scorpion fish This is a good site for those who like to take their time peering into crevices and exploring.
For those who have no fear of disorientation i recommend a “jump” in the blue
