SCUBA DIVING GORDO BANKS

GORDO BANKS DIVING
The Gordo Banks near Cabo San Lucas are legendary for their seasonal (June-Nov) schooling of hammerhead sharks and whale sharks, as well as massive pelagics like marlin, sailfish, and tuna. Dolphins and mammoth manta rays are also frequent sightings here, as are huge schools of mackerel and other baitfish.

The Gordo Banks rise to within 110 feet of the surface about eight miles off the tip of the Baja Peninsula. The summit of the bank is a dark maze of canyons and rocky spires covered with a dense forest of small gorgonian corals.

Dive Site: This is an advanced dive for experienced divers that can feature strong currents at times. Average depths are between 110 and 130 feet.

OUR ADVICE:

There is no other site in the Baja that features as many pelagics as the Gordo Banks. If big game fish like marlin and tuna, as well as whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, and dolphins sounds like a good time to you, then Gordo Banks may be for you.

HOWEVER

This dive is for experienced divers only. If you're not sure if you are experienced enough for this dive, then you probably aren't. We recommend Cabo Pulmo instead.

EXTRA INFO

Gordo Banks is located 40 minutes in boat from San Jos� del Cabo bay, dive equipment rental must be paid in cash directly in front desk, cost is $30.00 US dollars per rental.
