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.

Awesome !

We booked a three tank dive online. Laura responded promptly to our inquiry. She explained everything clearly and arranged for a phone call to answer questions we might have. The entire process was easy and hassle free. We absolutely enjoyed our dives!…

Exclusive diving

Laura (owner) was very kind and obliging with the planning and execution of a 6-day-14-dive week for my buddy and I. Her team of private guides (thank you Antonio, Jenny & Felipe) is professional, experienced, knowledgeable and respectful of the environment and…

Can't wait to go back! Very professional and FUN!

Cabo Private Guide was an amazing experience from start to finish. Laura is excellent with handling communication. We started planning this trip in August. The closer we got to the trip, the more emails I would send, and she answered them quickly.…

Amazing dive group!

Dove with a couple companies while in cabo and, hands down, these guys are the absolute best dive group in Cabo. Easy to schedule on the front side, better, more well-maintained equiptment, and the guides are amazing, felt like I was diving…

Was so lucky to spend couple of days on the ocean and marine life with Laura. went between 60 foot boats to dive boats - all were greta and Laura added so muck. Thank you

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.
