Whether you are a complete amateur or a seasoned pro diver there are packages for everyone that cater to your skill and what it is you are looking to see underwater. Thanks to a team of great divers, and swimmers you will be in capable hands that will not only ease you along but also indicate some of the best geological and animal marvels that can be seen here daily. If you’ve never been on a tour before or possibly never even touched any snorkelling gear let alone SCUBA equipment, here is a brief guide that will help you.
Snorkelling vs Diving
Snorkels are the mask and breathing tube combinations that can be easily equipped by anyone, what’s great about snorkelling is its ease of use. All you have to do here is place the tube in your mouth and swim on the surface, the goggles allow you to keep your eyes open without getting sea water in them and the tube allows for regular breathing. What this does mean however is that you will need to be good at floating so weak swimmers may need to skip this one. Diving requires SCUBA (Self contained underwater breathing apparatus) gear which is a lot more cumbersome but allows you to swim to great depths without worrying about air. Luckily Dive Cabo offers some introductory tours (Discover Scuba Diving) for beginners that will get you used to the equipment and let you loose underwater with all the kit you need, so first timers don’t need to worry.
The Right Tour for You
Once you know your skill level and are capable of diving without much assistance the next thing to do is pick which tour fascinates you the most. Cabo is not lacking when it comes to marine life and so you may want to investigate what type of sea creatures you want to swim amongst. From schools of smaller fish to groups of Sharks, there are options for everyone here depending on how adventurous you are feeling.
Some of the most impressive options available include a night tour which has you heading to the deeps to see what nightlife in the reef looks like. Here a whole different line up of animals come to steal the show that would have been hidden during daylight hours, now illuminated and glowing in a rainbow of colours right before your eyes. On a different scale altogether they also provide a snorkelling option that has you swimming alongside the incredible whale sharks of the region. With so many of these gentle giants in the area you are almost guaranteed to spot several of these and swim right beside them in the clear waters. So if you’ve ever wanted to literally swim with the fishes now you can, with their tours also providing photos and video footage of you on your experience, this is something that will stay with you well after you dip your toes in.
