Scuba diving shops and dive centers are a short 5-10 minute stroll from the resorts over near the marina. Some of the dive shops in alphabetical order include Amigos Del Mar, Baja Dive, Cabo Dive Center, Dive Cabo, Dive Ninja Expeditions, Kraken Divers, Manta Scuba Diving, Pelagic Fleet, and the list goes on. When the cruise ships enter port, the local dive shops can get quite busy. If you have enough people in your party, you can charter your own boat, captain, and all. So, there are five main dive sites near the cape and close to Solmar Hotels & Resorts.
Starting near the marina we have North Wall, Pelican Rock, Middle Wall, South Wall, Neptune's Finger, and Land's End. North Wall has a rock covered slope and if you look closely between the rock crevices you may find an octopus holding rocks out in front of itself to blend in with the rest of the scenery. So, in the summer, seahorses are found here. On the far southern side at Land's End, is the wreck of the Nurnberg at 40ft of depth. The Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet just south of Solmar Hotels & Resorts, so diving at the tip of the cape is dependent on waves and currents. The sea lions are all over this site too.
At all the other sites, the one constant is the sand that perpetually cascades down the slopes, which is mesmerizing to watch.
Attractions and Activities
There is literally everything to do except snorkeling or swimming in the ocean due to currents. However, with so many pools at Solmar Hotels & Resorts, this may not be a problem. Other than that, you might want to try fishing, parasailing, wine making and tasting, or shopping in town. You can also walk to the Arch, Lovers End, or Land's End. The resorts either have their own restaurants, or visit one of the outside restaurants such as Puerto San Lucas or Rome & Julieta. Oh, and don't forget the six dive sites leading towards the Sea of Cortez in El Corridor.
