Gordo Banks

Located eight miles off the shores of San Jose Del Cabo in the Sea of Cortez, the Gordo Banks rivals Cabo Pulmo and Cabo San Lucas Marine Preserve for the title of best scuba diving spot in the region. Because of the depths (up to one hundred and thirty feet) and the powerful currents, this locale is only recommended for advanced divers. This dive site is very active, with large schools of Jacks, swarms of Hammerhead Sharks, lone Bull Sharks, massive Manta Rays and occasionally a gigantic Whale Shark.
