Yesterday I tried diving...I was encouraged, kept safe and enabled to enjoy an experience, which I found terrifying, in the most competent way. Everyone in the Dive Cabo team was cheerful, helpful and friendly. This professional team gave me the courage to manage a dive. Thank you to everyone.

Today, recognising my own limits, I stayed on the boat while others in my party completed their certification. This showed me a different view of the team; the instructors continued their professional duties of looking after their parties. Pablo the Boat Captain enabled them all, making their jobs easier. His knowledge of how to deliver his divers to the right place and keep them safe in a busy waterway close to rocks was epic. He knew where they all were and positioned his boat to protect them in an effortless way.

While doing all of that, he took the time to chat to those of us left on the boat, making nervous people feel safe and for me, enhancing my experience with local knowledge and genuine interest in what I had to say too....a class act!

I would highly recommend Dive Cabo to anyone who was anxious about diving...but most of all to anyone who would like a truly wonderful experience. Thank you Pablo, you made my day.

My wife and I dove with Dive Cabo last week and had a great time. Our captain, Ramon, made sure that not only did he take us to our dive sites but chased down whales during our surface intervals where we got to see them up close. Furgus was our dive master who made sure everyone was safe and he really knew his way around the sites. If you are a diver and come to Cabo, I highly recommend using Dive Cabo as your dive company. You won’t be disappointed.

Dived with these folks 2 days - one day at Lands End (local dive) and 2nd dive along the corridor. This is a repeat visit and they are simply one of the best dive shops I've experienced (800+ dives). Dived with Diego (leader) and Pablito (captain) first day. We had a guy go too deep then run low on air and Diego handled the situation very well. Pablito always had the boat nearby. I'm having to cut this short, because the 2nd day of diving was INCREDIBLE. Had Fergus as leader and Pablo as Captain. Saw HUMPBACKS multiple times on the way out and had a great first dive with good viz and 80 degree water. As we were nearing the boat after dive #2 Pablo yelled GO and pointed. There were 3 humpbacks playing on the surface, not 50 feet from our boat (he had, of course, managed to get us surfacing close to them). We swam toward them and had the awesome experience of being within 20-30' of them as they interacted. I was about 10 ft under and could clearly see their bodies, eyes and faces while Fergus dropped down about 25' and shot video. I will treasure that forever, as well as the wonderful memories in my mine. With only three of us + Fergus, it was even more special.

Hi Marilyn! Thank you for sharing your unforgettable experience! We had such amazing luck in seeing the 3 humpbacks at the end of our 2nd dive. It was a first for me too so thank you for being such a pleasure to dive with! We hope to see you again very soon Marilyn! All the best and safe diving, Fergus and the Dive Cabo Team!

I do not recommend this Dive Cabo. TLDR: if anything goes wrong they'll blame someone else and not make up for it appropriately. Full story: My family (4 of us) went on a whaleshark tour with them and they did not meet their end of the deal. Included in the whaleshark tour is pictures and videos. The guide that Dive Cabo procured for us took all of our pictures promising we would get them all afterwords in an email from Dive Cabo, so we trusted this and let the guide use her phone/GoPro for all pictures and videos. The day after the tour I emailed Dive Cabo asking about the pictures and videos, I believe 3 or 4 days went by and no response, so I called. I was ensured they are trying to track down the guide to get the photos. Another week goes by and I call again, same thing, Dive Cabo says they are still trying to track down the guide and that's that. Nearly 3 weeks after our tour Dive Cabo sends me an email saying the pictures and videos have been deleted and offered a free snorkeling trip for two people (remember there are 4 people in my group and Dive Cabo is in Cabo). I emailed them back saying that we were sad to hear that but we don't feel a snorkeling trip for 2 people was a suitable recompense. For 1: We already left Cabo and have no plans to go back 2: They only offered 2 of the 4 of us a snorkeling tour 3: they passed the blame to the guide they hired for us. So I asked them instead of the snorkeling trip for 2 people we just get the cash value of the snorkeling trip for 2 people they offered. They declined and doubled down on it's not their our fault. So in the end I said we were unhappy with this outcome and do not think Dive Cabo have taken my family's concerns or value seriously. At your own risk, just know if anything goes wrong even something small like pictures/videos Dive Cabo will not provide you with the customer support one deserves.

Hi Justin, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you felt that we deserved a 1 star review. You had previously said that you enjoyed your day - swimming with whale sharks, the provided lunch and transportation. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to have our Dive Cabo guide join your party on the boat to provide you with the free photography service. Boat capacities are limited to 50% at this time. Due to this restriction, we offered your party a partial refund or a voucher for a free snorkel trip for 2 with no expiry date. We feel this is a kind gesture to make up for the inconvenience caused. Thank you and good day. Fergus and The Dive Cabo Crew

We booked the intro to scuba diving, as it had been a few years since our last dive. Johnny was our dive master, and Pablito the boat captain. There were 3 of us and it was unanimous that the instruction and safety briefings were very good. We completed 2 dives, one at 25 feet and the other at 40. Saw many fish, octopus, moray eels, and highlight was 3 sea lions playing around us for 5 minutes. We also had another family member signed up for the dive, but when a medical concern arose the manager made clear that the number one consideration was safety, rather than pushing for another diver and fee. We had a great time, including our first time diver, and highly recommend Johnny and Pablito at Dive Cabo.

My husband and I did their 7 day dive package (spread out over two weeks) and it did not disappoint! Over our 14 dives, we dove in all locations (Corridor, Marine Reserve, and Gordo Banks). Not only did I find that Dive Cabo had the lowest price in Cabo for diving, but the free extras they included (storage of our gear and free pictures that the dive masters took), along with their friendly and professional personalities made our experience amazing! We were super lucky this trip seeing some giant creatures in plentiful numbers. Visibility was great the first week. By the second week it went down closer to shore, but was still clear further out. If you get cold I'd definitely recommend a 5mm full suit. I used my old 3 mm and was a bit chilled at the end of my dives.

We did the majority of our dives with Diego. By far one of the best dive masters we've been with. He was like diving with a friend. Super chill, allowed us to explore at our own pace, all the while looking out for awesome stuff that we might have missed. He was friendly and professional, and kept safety first. Our experience with Cesar (another Dive Master) was very similar. He was also awesome. I am sad, however, we didn't get to dive with Fergus (the whale whisperer). He was awesome to talk to and visit with on our surface intervals. He seemed to be in charge of training divers. I could definitely see why and strongly recommend doing your training with him. As a teacher seeing another teacher in action, he was very calm, patient, and easy to speak to. Even his students on the boat exclaimed about his skills. If you are thinking about getting trained, go see Fergus!

Our boat drivers Pablo and Miguel were also awesome! We had Pablo most of the time and he took us on some detour whale finding during our surface intervals. They were both easy to speak with and professional.

Overall, we loved our experience with Dive Cabo and would definitely dive with them again!

I booked a 2 day dive package with dive cabo, The first day was in the Cabo San Lucas marine park and the second day at Gordo Banks. The dive at Gordo Banks was the highlight. We saw a large group of scalloped hammerhead sharks on both dives and as if this wasn't good enough a humpback whale swam pass us during the safety stop. Absolutely amazing experience. I will be back in late summer for the warm water.

Hey Ralph! Thank you for leaving us a nice review! What an epic dive at Gordo we had, I will remember that one for a while too! You were lucky with the good visibility too. Now you have the videos to show off to your mates! We hope you will be back later in the year to see the Silky sharks at Gordo! Thank you again and all the best, Fergus and the Dive Cabo Crew!

I initially signed up for a 3 day morning dive package but ended up extending it to a 6 day morning dive package instead. The diving here is incredible due to its large variety of sea life. The water is extra salty here too so you will find large schools of fish and anything from sealions, eagle rays, cow nose rays to tiny creatures like colorful nudibranch and frog fish.

Nevertheless, what impressed me the most was how good the dive shop operated. They took care of all my gear, rinsed it everyday and made sure it’s back on the boat the following day. The dive boat was spacious and provided adequate water and snacks in between dives. The divemasters are very friendly, communicates well and are very passionate in what they do. Thank you Leroux, Sandra, Fernanda, Andres and also Renson (I didn’t dive with Renson but he’s a very friendly guy!)

If I had one suggestion for improvement, it would be to extend the dive time to 60min instead of capping it at 45min, as most diving in the Caribbean last for 60min.

Overall, I highly recommend Dive Cabo as the dive shop of choice for anyone looking to dive in Cabo San Lucas. Oh and pay in cash, you get a 10% discount!

Jeff and I ventured to Cabo San Lucas specifically to scuba dive and after doing our homework we decided to experience this with Dive Cabo. I am a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and my husband, an Advanced Diver; with over 200 logged dives, hands down, this was our best overall dive experience. The diving was not what we thought it would be, however, we were not disappointed. We saw caves, overhangs, water mountains, hard coral and oh so much more. First guitar shark and balloon fish and never so many trumpet, puffer and box fish. On almost every dive, the boat captain found us humpback whales. Truly exhilarating above and below water and we will never forget! We spent 5 days with Dive Cabo and only once did we return to the same dive site. Key Differentiator from other dive teams was the absolutely outstanding Customer Service; not one dive, one day or one person. From the time we reached out to the time we said see you later. This team was responsive, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. We felt safe and had so much fun. We tip our hats to the best-in-class dive team of Pablo Santiago, Stewart Porter, Fergus Kenny, Solomon and Diego for providing us the best overall dive experience ever! Thank you so much for the pictures, video's and experience. I will recommend you to any diver, any level!

I've been wanting to get scuba ceritfied for a while now and had to pleasure of getting it at Dive Cabo over the Thanksgiving holiday. My friend and I signed up for the open water certification. We had the option of taking the classroom part of the course online so no classes in Cabo means more vacation time. We were scheduled for three days of training - the first day was in the pool and the second and third day was in the ocean. Our instructor, Diego Martinez, was very knowledgeable and patient. Don't let his poker face fool you, he's a funny guy. We had a lot of fun and even though I was nervous over some of the exercises, his confidence and demeanor helped eased the jitters.

Even though this was during COVID, I felt safe. I'm not sure what is the normal amount of students per instructor is but there were just three of us. I saw them sanitize the equipment after each use and everyone wore masks while inside the shop. Snacks and water were offered on the boat and the whole process was seamless. I would highly recommend them if you're looking to check out scuba diving. It was such a wonderful experience. Thank you so much!
