FAQ's

Dive Sites Around Cabo San Lucas

Abundant macro life

Dive tours in the Cabo San Lucas Marine Park would be incomplete without a scuba tour that makes up the reefs and walls of Pelican Rock. At Cabo Trek this is one of our favorite sites as the area seems to be a magnet for marine life, especially magnificent macro.

Pelican Rock

A small rocky islet that breaks the surface near to Lovers Beach. Depth on the beach side is 25 feet, along the back, the wall drops to beyond recreational diving limits.

Spotted-sharpnose_webThis is a great site for underwater photo and video. The rocky walls are covered with multi-hued corals , sponge and algae.
Inside the coral are Frogfish, Puffers, Hawkfish, Gobies and Blennies. Invertebrates like Urchins, Sea Stars, Sea Cucumbers, Nudibranchs and Octopus are common here. Scorpionfish and Coronet fish are also common, drawn by the feeding opportunity.

Seasonally there are often huge schools of Sardines, Snappers and Goatfish, with Grouper and Jacks stalking them along the back wall of Pelican Rock.

Where the Pacific Ocean begins

Diving with Cabo Trek at Lands End is an inspiring experience and a different one each time. Cabo San Lucas is the meeting point of 3 oceanic currents, which translates to a huge biomass of fish that passes through and has made this area famous for sports fishing. Lands End is our favorite dive site in the Cabo San Lucas Marine Park.

Sealion_landsend_webLands End or The Point is at the southern most point of the Baja Peninsula. This is next to the seasonal home of a colony of California Sea Lions who are quite used to divers.

Depths at the sandy base of the rocky monoliths are at most 70 feet.

This site is subject to conditions, as currents and surge can be strong. While we can book your scuba tour to include diving at Lands End, please be aware conditions can change by the hour and we always prioritize safety above all.

Neptunes Finger also knows as Baja upside-down

Between Lands End and South Wall
Come and enjoy a multilevel dive with Cabo Trek along the steep drop off of Neptune’s Finger. The rocky reef extends a skinny crag skyward, likend to be Neptune pointing up to the sky. Unique in the bay of Cabo San Lucas, this dive site is best for divers who enjoy deeper tours.

Moorish_Idol_web1Neptunes Finger begins as a continuation of the deep site known as South Wall that runs from Pelican Rock to Neptune’s Finger. A series of rocky reefs interspaced by sand chutes are capped off by a shallow rocky sharp pinnacle.

Deep Walls

Come and explore the deep wall in the Bay of Cabo San Lucas Marine Park with Cabo Trek, a dive site seldom visited by typical Los Cabos  operators. A private scuba trip means you can chose these special reefs to explore.

Watch out for Mantas!

Giant_Hawkfish_web1Is a deep wall that starts at 90 feet and drops into the dark of the bay, beyond 1200 feet. Beginning south of Pelican Rock we typically drift towards Neptune’s Finger following the crest of the wall between 80 and 100 feet.

Larger pristine coral formations, big schools of fish, large groupers and chance encounters with pelagics are some of the best life to see along South Wall.

Great for beginner and advanced divers

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.

What is down there?

slider_school2There 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.
