Cabo San Lucas is one of the finest places to fish in the world. Besides the championship marlin, game fish such as the dorado, wahoo, yellowtail, and roosterfish abound in these waters. Thus there are several major fishing tournaments held each year in Cabo San Lucas, including the Bisbee Black and Blue Marlin, and For Pete's Sake.
Both full-day fishing charters and smaller pangas for half day excursions are available.top

Diving & Snorkeling
The waters of Cabo San Lucas are so pure that visibility can reach depths of 120 feet. Water temperatures average in the 70’s and low 80’s. Several shipwrecks, caves and canyon dives are available, two of the most popular being Cabo Pulmo and Sand Falls. The National Marine Reserve of Cabo Pulmo in the East Cape offers shallow water dives amid schools of colorful fish on a live coral reef (the only one found on North America's west coast). Just off the tip of Land's End is Sand Falls, first discovered by Jacques Cousteau. This deep, 90 foot water dive offers a glimpse of some of the world’s most beautiful large tropical fish. There are also more intimate coves and beaches for snorkeling, including beautiful Santa Maria Bay, Playa Palmilla, Chilleno Bay, and the famous Playa del Amor (Lover's Beach).
Some of the most famous surf breaks are:
Surfing & Windsurfing
The tip of the Baja Peninsula offers many areas for surfers including Todos Santos to the north and the East Cape, heading east and northeast of San Jose del Cabo. Windsurfers will want to head for the famous spots in Los Barriles and Buenavista, just north of San Jose del Cabo.
From January through April, an estimated 11,000 gray whales make this journey of over 10,000 miles to bear their calves and frolic in Pacific Coast lagoons to the north of Los Cabos. Daily air tours and multi-day land tours are the perfect way to witness this truly breathtaking sight.
