Cabo Pulmo is one of Baja’s favorite attractions for divers that come from many different parts of the World. Why? Its incredible amount of life! Get ready to dive in a storm of thousands of jack fish, get to know bull sharks eye to eye and discover the beautiful variety of fishes that the Sea of Cortez has to offer.
In the 1990’s, local fisherman from Cabo Pulmo started realizing that tourism could be a better way to make a living. The community at Cabo Pulmo started to slowly shift from fishing to tourism, and by 1995 Cabo Pulmo officially became a National Park, which means it is protected by Mexican law and any type of fishing is prohibited. This has allowed the fauna to recover and thrive. By 2009, the fish biomass of Cabo Pulmo increased by 463%, and now it’s even higher! Year after year we see more and bigger fish.
