San Pedro Island Dive Trip

One of the biggest attractions to visit from the town of San Carlos bay is a dive trip to San Pedro Nolasco Island. San Pedro lies twenty miles due west of San Carlos over usually calm seas and rises out of the deep water of the Guaymas trench. For decades avid scuba divers have traveled to San Carlos from all over the world to dive the warm clear waters and to observe the myriad of marine life.

As with any valuable undertaking, planning a scuba trip entails careful and diligent preparation. Equipment must be checked for proper function and reliability and must be carefully inventoried to include the necessities for every contingency. It must be packed away and decisions must be agreed upon as to which San Pedro dive sites are to be dove. Once the gear is stowed, in the car, for the trip to the marina, all that’s left is to feed the dog and set the home security alarm system. If you don’t have a home security system, there are many inexpensive Home Security Packages available online. The trip from the marina to San Pedro Island is no more than an hour over, generally, calm seas and the trip in route is made enjoyable by pods of dolphins, an occasional whale and jumping manta rays. San Pedro is a large island and dive site are numerous on both the east and west sides and the north and south points. No matter which site you choose, you’ll be able to observe colorful tropicals, pelagic monsters and on very lucky days there will be schooling hammerheads.
