.... dive at an offshore seamount !!!
Gordo Banks is located 7 miles off-shore from San Jose del Cabo. The top of this seamount is at approximately 120 feet with the width of about 2 football fields.
Schools of jacks, mackerels, tunas and snapper, large groupers, sometimes devil rays, eagle rays, cow-nose rays and mobula ray are common visitors at this offshore reef. With a bit of luck you may also see scalloped hammerhead sharks and silky sharks.
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. This is a unique location where the hammerhead sharks gather in large numbers, but please be aware that the sightings are not guaranteed.
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 (with less than 100 logged dives) to do a local 2 tank dive in the Cabo San Lucas marine park or at the Corridor prior to diving at Gordo Banks. The open water diver certification is sufficient but you need to be a competent diver with experience in blue water diving to fully appreciate the site.
