underwater macro photography - Nudibranch in Cabo

Macro lover

Sometimes we overlook the small animals here in Baja California Sur because of the abundance of large animals that peak the interest of our divers.

The truth is, when we look for the small animals we are moving slowly and carefully and this means that, naturally, sometimes the large animals just come for a look too!

So why not focus on both? You can see macro (nudibranchs, frog fish, sea horses, crustaceans, eels, coral worms, sea hares etc) year round in Cabo – so it doesn’t matter when you book this package.

We do recommend considering this package if you are intending to come in spring because the visibility is generally lower and this would be a great time to focus on small animals and get more from your dives.

Women scuba diving in Cabo San Lucas

The Mermaid Trail

Cabo Private Guide has long been affiliated with scuba groups such as Scuba Women and Scuba Mar Maids. Here in Cabo, CPG’s owner (Laura) has forged good partnerships with like-minded female business owners to create ‘The Mermaid Trail’ package. A fun name (!) to describe a dive trip that shows off the best Baja California Sur, while striving to always use female owned businesses in a safe, female-friendly environment.

Our focus IS on women supporting women but is very much intended to be inclusive of MEN and WOMEN. The businesses themselves are a collective of amazing dive pros of all genders and you don’t need to be a female to sign up!

If you sign up for this package then the tours you attend with CPG will endeavour to provide a female guide whenever possible and we will request the same from our partners.

Need a pick up from the airport? You can also request a female driver to collect you as soon as you land in SJD!

Diving in Cabo San Lucas Bay and The Corridor


Season : Year round

Although we can see sea lion or sharks such as whitetip reef sharks and rare sightings of horn sharks on our local reefs, this first day of your dive package should offer encounters with many ray species including; guitar rays, eagle rays, mobula rays, butterfly rays, bullseye rays, southern stingrays, diamond rays and even bat rays!

Going diving the Cabo San Lucas bay area and The Corridor allows us to cover the greatest area of the Los Cabos dive sites. Please note some times of the year The Corridor of Los Cabos will be unsuitable due to swell or wind and we will stay in the bay for shelter.

Cabo San Lucas Bay

The Corridor


Diving in Cabo Pulmo National Park


Season : Year round

Cabo Pulmo, a 2 hour drive away in a small fishing village that has dedicated the last 30 years to a fishing ban, we can take you to reefs famous for resident bull sharks, whitetip reef sharks and huge squadrons of cow nose rays. We cannot guarantee specific wildlife encounters.
Please check our Cabo Pulmo diving page for full information about the rules of the park to manage your expectations. However, diving here IS a privilege and the mass of fish and abundance of wildlife means that if nature does not deliver sharks and rays, you will see a lot of impressive aquatic life nonetheless.

** Mobula Ray Aggregation


Season : June to July only

We take you on a 3 hour open-water adventure snorkel swim with mobula for your last day – a good idea for off-gassing before your flight home.
The mobula rays are cousins of the manta ray and arrive in the bay of Cabo San Lucas in a swarm of hundreds of thousands.
It’s easier to encounter rays in Cabo by swimming at the surface rather than scuba diving. If you’re here during these months and you would like more of a chance to see them while diving check out our special mobula ray combo tour.

** Blue Water Shark and Ocean Safari


Season : Year round

Cabo Private Guide partner with a 3rd party operator that conducts open-water shark snorkel safaris.

This tour does involve chumming for seasonal shark species – we appreciate not all our divers like the idea of this so we would be happy to substitute this for a different tour!.

You might encounter silky sharks, blue sharks, hammerhead sharks and makos. Blue Water safaris also mean you might see a number of other pelagic animals such as dolphins, mobula rays, orcas, false killer whales and more!

Blue water snorkeling


** Whale shark snorkel day trip to La Paz


Season : November to April only

One of the most impressive and predictable shark encounters here in Baja California Sur is swimming with the slow and docile whale shark in the bay of La Paz. Once we arrive after a 2 hour road trip the whale sharks congregate very close to shore and we spend 2- 3 hours on the boat.

This is a full day tour from Cabo but totally worth it!

La Reina at Cerralvo (Jacques Cousteau) Island


Season : Year round

The Sea of Cortez offers some beautifully secluded day trips from Los Cabos. One of our favourite Baja Sur expeditions is to La Ventana: a kite surfing town with a small population of local fishermen and home to a gateway to Jacques Cousteau Island.

Jacques cousteau island


Hammerhead shark at Gordo Banks Deep Water Pinnacle


Season : Year round

Best season from July To January. For our Advanced Open Water divers we have the option to take you to look for scalloped hammerhead sharks that school (in their hundreds!) 7 miles from shore (22 miles from Cabo) in Gordo Banks.

This is a HIT OR MISS dive. This means that, due to unpredictable currents and unpredictable Mother Nature, we cannot guarantee seeing the Hammerhead sharks who may be residing deeper than our dive plan, or the current just won’t allow us near to the pinnacle despite our captain’s expert drop.

When we do hit the jackpot, it’s easily one of the most exhilarating shark dives in Baja California Sur and Cabo San Lucas.
