Cabo Shark Dive was founded to protect sharks and pelagic predators by offering safe, close and personal underwater interactions. We believe that educating people is the best way to raise awareness, and what better way to do that then to expose them to the beauty of the underwater world. Shark diving, snorkelling or shark-watching expeditions are fun, exciting and entertaining activities that are also environmentally sustainable.
We aim to prevent the destruction of marine environments and to encourage an increased understanding of sharks. We hope that through our efforts, we will be able to contribute to the protection and conservation of marine life. In our tours, we also involve local fishermen, to help the community. Not only have some of the local fishermen joined our project, but we also make sure to ethically source our chum from the remains of fish that would otherwise go to waste.
While on the water, our number one priority is safety; of both you and the sharks. With our extensive background in shark diving, marine biology and the Cabo area, we have a 100% safety record – and plan to keep it that way! We were the first in to bring people to swim and dive with sharks and pelagic fish in Cabo San Lucas, and our entire team strives to provide the best service, in and out of the water.
