Los Cabos Tourist Corridor
Diving in the Corridor of Cabo San Lucas is an excellent option if you want to see a bit more of Cabo San Lucas and its surroundings. The Corridor is the coastline between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose’ del Cabo, and there are at least 4 spots that are well worth the effort to get there: Chileno Bay, Santa Maria, Blowhole, and Whales Head.

Safe and Fun
For comfort, safety, and the best Los Cabos Tourist Corridor scuba diving experience, we travel in small groups.
Along the walls and hiding under huge rocks, we can find a wide variety of marine life, including big pelagic fish such as whale sharks, tunas, and wahoos. As we get closer to November, there are chances to encounter humpback whales, and if we are lucky, it is possible to hear them singing. Nice underwater rock formations and hard coral make these dive sites very interesting: depth can be chosen according to the expertise of the divers; shallow as well as deep is available, making it perfect for both beginners and experienced divers.
Depending on Ocean conditions, the boat ride is about 30 to 40 minutes to get to the furthest dive site (Chileno Bay). The Corridor is a perfect occasion also for non-divers to join the group as the reefs close to the coast are very shallow and are great snorkeling spots, so bring family and friends on tour with you. They may even be interested in trying scuba diving by enrolling in a PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program.
Dive Sites at the Corridor
It is a large open bay with a large rocky reef structure that juts perpendicularly from a lovely beach. The site can be dove shallow exploring the crevices and schools of fish among the rocks or deep, looking for spotted rays in the sand or cow nose rays soaring by above.
We often see schools of surgeonfish, goatfish, chub, and butterflyfish. This is an excellent site to find zebra and starry moray eels, diamond and Cortes stingrays, and trumpet fish.
Santa Maria is a small protected bay with a great beach that starts our dive. We begin with the bay’s protection; we make our way to deeper waters, following the coral-encrusted rocky reef structures.
This is a good site for many pufferfish and the odd-looking spotted boxfish. There are many parrotfish, lizardfish, and giant hawkfish to see while exploring the reef structures.
The Blowhole is a small bay with cliffs surrounding a central island where you can hear the Blowhole erupting with seawater when there is a surge in the shallows. The site has high-profile rocky reef structures deeper and finger-like projections closer to shore.
We often find white tip reef sharks (in the warmer months) or guitarfish and giant electric rays (in the colder months). Schools of jacks and mobula rays often pass by.
Whale Heads is named for a rocky structure over the water, the site can be dove both as a deep multi-level profile or shallow exploring the coastline. The site has many crevices and overhangs, making it suitable for macro sea life.
Exploring the reef structures here, you may see schools of Panamic Porkfish, King and Cortez Angelfish above, and a variety of moray eels below. Keep an eye out for Leopard Flounder in the sand and the Panama Graysby perching for a photo.
