Shark Diving • Gordo Banks

Dive with hammerhead sharks at an offshore sea mount

Gordo Banks is located 8-10 miles off-shore from San Jose del Cabo. There are different seamounts, while the top of one is approximately 120 feet, the other is at 180 feet.

This is a unique location where hammerhead sharks gather in large numbers, however please be aware that sightings are not guaranteed. Schools of jacks, mackerels, tunas, snapper, groupers, eagle rays, cow-nose rays and mobula rays are also common visitors at this offshore reef. Silky sharks and whale sharks may be seen with a bit of luck in the cooler months from April – June.

Due to the advanced conditions at Gordo Banks there is no time to adjust weights, gear etc. at the surface, this needs to be done prior to this dive. Please also note that this a hit or miss dive. The dive conditions at Gordo Banks can be quite challenging, due to the depth, strong currents, visibility and heavy seas. Therefore we require all divers to do a local 2 tank dive with us or our sister location “East Cape Explorers” prior to diving at Gordo Banks.
