A Dive Site Like No Other

The journey to Sand Falls begins with a scenic boat ride from Cabo San Lucas Marina. Exiting the marina is a trip of no more than 5 minutes.

Steering towards Cabo Bay and the legendary Neptune’s Finger, this iconic rock formation rises impressively from the sea bed. It isn’t just a guide for scuba divers; it’s a prelude to the marvels below.

As you submerge, the clear waters of the Sea of Cortez unveil their secrets. The site, a haven for divers of varying experience levels, offers a glimpse into an aquatic world teeming with life. At Cabo Bay, each dive offers new sights in an ongoing oceanic saga. Today, the magnificent manta rays; tomorrow, the elusive moray eels.

The Phenomenon of the Sand Falls


What sets Sand Falls apart is its extraordinary underwater terrain. Imagine an underwater cliff descending into the abyss, where sand and small rocks cascade like a submerged waterfall.

This phenomenon is visible at various spots along the underwater cliffs. Dive sites include Pelican Rock and Neptune’s Finger, creating an underwater eerie and mesmerizing surreal landscape.

Diving Conditions and Considerations

While Sand Falls welcomes divers of all skill levels, it’s particularly thrilling for the experienced. The site’s strong currents and depth, reaching a sandy bottom at about 300-600 feet, demand reasonable buoyancy control and comfort with deeper dives.

Depending on the season, the water temperature varies from a refreshing 65 to a warm 80 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 26 degrees Celcius). These temperatures add another layer to the dive’s dynamic environment.

At Los Cabos

I used to live in Los Cabos for some time and worked here as a boat captain in one of Cabo San Lucas' leading tour companies. Back then, I came for 6 months but stayed for 18. I've done a bunch of things, and visited multiple hemispheres. I traveled and lived in other countries. And now I'm back here, At Los Cabos.
