My adult sons and I came to Cabo in hopes of diving with hammerhead sharks. East Cape Explorers was the best choice we could have made! Charlie and Pablo made sure our day was fantastic with them! It's been a few years since we have been diving and Charlie made sure we got a thorough dive briefing and gear checks. He and Pablo helped us get all our gear set up and ready to go. Safety was their first concern with a lot of fun along the way. Pablo was a careful captain and got us quickly and precisely to our dive locations. Playa the whale spotting dog came along for the ride and made our experience that much better. (If you are not a dog lover Playa will stay home.) We love dogs and having her excited energy on board was contagious. During our surface interval she spotted whales, sea lions and dolphins before we did! When the dolphins came over to play by our boat, Playa joined in the fun. We had two great dives in search of the hammerheads. We saw mobula rays, schools of fish and on our second dive we found the hammerheads. Visibility this time of year is poor, but Charlie found us some in the green expanse. The dives were filled with the sounds of humpback whales singing. What an incredible experience! Charlie was a consummate professional under water. These were deep dives and I ended up with a bit of nitrogen narcosis and he quickly took charge and got me slowly and safely up while still making sure the others on the dive had time to still enjoy the dive. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience Charlie and Pablo and the whole East Cape Explorer team!

We don’t dive a lot and decided to book a trip with East Cape Explorers. While we did a refresher course prior to leaving home just to make sure we knew what we we doing. My wife is still a little timid.

At any rate, I booked this last night. We showed up at the shop (missed an email this morning due to phone issues), and Charlie had some semi bad news for us when we showed up at the shop.

He was doing a training session for another couple and wouldn’t be able to take us out today unless we joined in the training.

We decided to go for it. It was a two tank dive. We saw some Wales (both Humpback and Grey) along with a sea lion, an octopus, a scorpion fish, and an abundant variety of sea life.

We will definitely dive with this team again!

Thanks everyone!

I have joined the dive center for two days of dives and everything was excellent. Did a local dive in Corridor and then Gordo Banks. Excellent dives lead by Charlie, the manager, and the rest of the very friendly team. I've booked a few more days diving with East Cape Explorers while in San Jose.

We did our padi open water diver cert with East Cape. Great little dive shop and the instruction (our instructor EV) was fantastic! Could'n't have asked for a more professional, thorough experience. These guys really care about the sport and sharing it with people safely. We'll be back for some guided dives for sure!

I took a solo trip to Cabo and searched out a Padi Scuba Certified dive shop and was so happy I found Charlie and his East Cape Dive Shop!
Not only is Charlie knowledgeable and a great scuba leader, he’s also super friendly and patient as well. He and his crew took care of everything needed to make for a smooth dive.
The dive itself was good. We got to see an octopus, a few sharks, some scorpion fish, and eel and plenty schools of fish. After our dive we even had a couple whale encounters right next to the boat!
If you’re wanting to dive in Cabo, check out these guys, you’ll be happy you did!
