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.

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

We had a beautiful day on the water in La Paz snorkeling with whale sharks! Jon runs a great dive shop at Amigos del Mar which is the oldest dive shop in Cabo and has quality people working with the customers. Carlos was our guide for the day and wanted to make sure we all had fun and swam as... 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.

My dad and I have dived with Luis several times now and he has been amazing each time! He is very knowledgeable about local marine life and ecosystems! We were able to see so many cool animals. Our boat captains were very friendly and great at making sure you're at ease on the water (and spotting any animals that come... More

Sarah solicits through some main resorts and is paid by commission only. She is very knowledgable and well worth avoiding the bigger booze cruise snorkelling tours with a bunch of rowdies.. this is a smaller boat and she ordered the best captain that watched for whales for us also. Yes.. we paid for a two bay snorkelling tour.. which they... More

We had a very good dive with Luis as our dive master. The equipment (tank, regulator, BC, wetsuit) was good and modern. The boat was fit for purpose. The beginners dive location is only 5 minutes from the marina. The water is a little cold in January but we saw lots of fish and even two sharks. Overall a great... More

Been in business for severall decades, it offers two tank dives in local area mostly for around $90. Slightly more if you travel cross the bay. Diving locally gives you a blend of quick on site experiences at lands end, pelican rock where sea lions, sea turtles, white tip sharks, old German (1954) freighter remains, tropical fish and deep canyons...
