Half-Day Snorkeling or Swimming with Sharks Tour in Cabo San Lucas

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Experience the emotion and adrenaline to swim and snorkelling safely out of cage with blue sharks, silky sharks, mako, smooth hammerheads and other incredible marine creatures in the pristine waters of the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean.
  • Swim safely with sharks in the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean with a guide
  • Advanced certified scuba divers may dive; 50 logged dives is required
  • The tour includes use of snorkeling gear
  • Snacks and beverages are provided
What to Expect
From the Cabo San Lucas marina, head out into the waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean to an exclusive dive site that’s about a 30-minute boat ride away. There, safely swim with sharks, as the tour is led by guides, instructors certified by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), and marine biologists. Along the way, learn about the aquatic wildlife of Baja California Sur. The tour also includes stops at the Arch of Cabo San Lucas and a sea lion colony. Plus, between December and April, you might be able to spot whales. For your safety, avoid wearing yellow, silver, white, and red, as well as jewelry—all of which resemble fish traits that could attract sharks.

We brought all of our own snorkel equipment. The operators want it to be dark colors though, so no bright colored equipment. They also provide snorkel equipment, wetsuits, water, and snacks.
