Amigos Del Mar is one of the leading SCUBA diving operators in Cabo San Lucas, Mexio - many say the leading SCUBA diving operator - and has been for the last 30+ years. This is due to our outstanding safety record, our service levels, our location and our resort partners. We have pioneered many of the legendary dive sites in the Sea of Cortes and, in fact, Amigos Del Mar pioneered recreational diving in Cabo San Lucas back in the 1970's.

The dives were mostly made comfortable and enjoyable by my fabulous instructor Daniella!, and the great visibility of the water.

We've gone diving with Amigos Del Mar twice now (two years apart) and had a great time with both experiences. Luis Bringas is an amazing instructor! He brought my husband out on a two-tank drive and they explored the Arch. On a later trip he took my son and his friend out on their first dives. Both experiences were excellent!

My family had never had any dive experience and really hadn't planned on trying scuba on this trip because my youngest son was too young to scuba (7) even though he was really interested. We kind of fell into this experience when our guides/instructors Shaggy and Abby came to the resort we were staying at and asked if we'd like... More

While my husband went diving, I rode along to watch the sea life. It was whale mating season and between dives, we stopped and watched the whales. This is a small business. Friendly, and helpful. Knowledgeable about the area.

We had an amazing day and saw whales up close and personal!! The watching was so good they stayed out for an extra hour or so. We also made friends with a sea turtle that stayed by our boat for a long visit. Crew was great, best day of our trip!!

Great time and expertly handled. Ricardo and Nardela (boat captain) provided us with great diving experiences. Ricardo is a master diver, who speaks English well. Good instructor and excellent in the water. Highly recommended. Jonathan is the manager. Excellent. He addressed a problem with my dive computer, expertly handled it and got it to function after being filled with water.... More

We went diving in Cabo with Amigos del Mar Diving based on recommendations from long time locals. We had a great time. The staff was great and very helpful. We saw lots of fish but the water was a bit chilly. Other than that we had a wonderful time and will most certainly return when in Cabo.
