Description: A small rocky islet that breaks the surface near to Lovers Beach. Depth on the beach side is 25 feet, along the back, the wall drops to beyond recreational diving limits.
This is a great site for underwater photo and video. The rocky walls are covered with multi-hued corals , sponge and algae.
Inside the coral are Frogfish, Puffers, Hawkfish, Gobies and Blennies. Invertebrates like Urchins, Sea Stars, Sea Cucumbers, Nudibranchs and Octopus are common here. Scorpionfish and Coronet fish are also common, drawn by the feeding opportunity.
Seasonally there are often huge schools of Sardines, Snappers and Goatfish, with Grouper and Jacks stalking them along the back wall of Pelican Rock.
Diving in Cabo San Lucas Marine Park offers short boat trips to beautiful coral encrusted rocky reefs teeming with fish, invertebrates and seasonal marine mammals like sea lions and whales. Cabo Trek offer year round private scuba trips to these sites.
The marine protected area was established in 1973 and cover almost 90% of the bay. Most of the premier dive sites are located along the stretch of coast running to Lands End. The best thing about these sites – being protected areas for the last 37 years they have experienced a great increase in fish and invertebrate populations. Our favorite dive spots are Lands End and Pelican Rock.
Trip time from the harbor to the Bay dive sites is a very nice and comfortable 10 minutes, perfect for those who tend to suffer from sea-sickness. Our boats are stable and comfortable.
During the surface intervals we can tour the area, visiting the Pacific side of the peninsula to examine the unique geographical structures that have made Cabo San Lucas famous – like the world renowned Cabo Arch.
