The Boiler

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

"The Boiler" at San Benedicto is world-renowned for the up-close and personal encounters divers experience with the Giant Pacific manta ray. This pelagic, which is a relative of the shark, can grow to a wingspan of over twenty feet, yet they are gentle giants. Mantas commonly greet divers upon their arrival and stay as long as there are divers around.

The Canyon

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Located on the south side of San Benedicto, The Canyon is likely to provide you with more unforgettable experiences with marine mega-fauna. Mantas are often seen here too! Sharks are more the order of the day at The Canyon with healthy numbers of silky sharks, Galapagos sharks and hammerhead sharks being the most frequently sighted. While the silkies and Galapagos sharks may travel solo or in small groups, the hammerheads can be present in vast schools. There are also swirling clouds of reef fish cascading up and down the slope, and always a chance of a passing pod of dolphins, making it a great site for photography.

Cabo Pearce

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cabo Pearce is located on the east side of Socorro Island. Look around immediately after you roll in – you might be surrounded by bottlenose dolphins. And if you are even luckier, they might be in the mood for company. Nothing is better than spending your whole dive with 20 to 30 friendly dolphins. But don't despair if the cetaceans are scarce –this is a great site for sharks, particularly whale sharks and there are plenty of giant manta rays.

Roca Partida

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Roca is a guano covered pinnacle about 85 miles from San Benedicto Island. As long as a football field, the pinnacle is in the middle of nowhere and is a magnet to pelagics. This is where Imany sharks, mantas, huge schools of fish, and whalesharks have been seen on past trips. Mantas, sharks and large schools of skip jack and yellowtail can also be seen.
