Scuba diving in the sea of cortez

  • The Corridor of Cabo san Lucas
  • All year
  • Beginner to Expert

The Corridor of Los Cabos is where you will find the famous Santa Maria Bay and where Chileno Bay is our furthest dive site. During winter season it’s common to spot a humpback whale breaching in the distance or hear the haunting song beneath the waves over in The Corridor. The Sea of Cortez dive sites of the Corridor are more exposed to southern swells and north wind and is best visited in the mornings.

A private dive in the Sea of Cortez

For a truly private scuba diving experience we recommend booking a private guide or a private boat to The Corridor for your dive excursion. Although the Cabo San Lucas marine reserve is stunning and full of life, the Sea of Cortez dive sites are arguably more secluded and we encounter fewer diver groups on these tours. If you want the best of both worlds you can select a combo where you visit both areas during a 2 or 3 tank tour! Tours in The Corridor still return to Cabo in time for lunch.

What is the water temp in the Sea of Cortez and the diving conditions ?

One of the main events that define water temperature and surface conditions in the Sea of Cortez would be the cyclical movement of wind and water currents out in the Pacific Ocean. Bringing with it, the awe-inspiring large wildlife that crosses into the Sea of Cortez at the tip of the peninsula.

  • Water visibility

    Visibility will constantly move up and down from an average of 40f/12m in spring to 60 or 70ft/20m+ in autumn.

  • Water temperature

    Temperature is fairly predictable with the warmer waters arriving late August through November (82f/28c) and the coldest in spring – summer (66f/18c).

  • Wind & Weather

    The wind tends to blow strong in January through March so cancellations are regular in Cabo Pulmo and La Paz, but doesn’t affect us too much for scuba diving in Cabo. Conversely, we get most swell in September/October so Cabo San Lucas dive trips can be affected whereas Cabo Pulmo and La Paz would have open ports.

 

Sea of Cortez : Marine life & Fish Identification
