Los Cabos Magazine #37 - Summer 2014

SUMMER 2014 | LOS CABOS MAGAZINE 41 Loso Cutadoboorss Top activities companies are currently featuring memorable below-the-surface adventures near Espíritu Santo, an archipelago off the coast of Baja California Sur’s capital city of La Paz. One of those is SunRider’s, which offers (624-143-2252) dive trips that depart from Cabo San Lucas aboard a 33-foot catamaran and include two dives at premier area sites like Los Islotes and Fang Ming. Los Islotes is located just north of Espíritu Santo, and the islets preside over a large colony of sea lions, as well as a concentrated sampling of the close to 900 species of fish found in the Sea of Cortés. Fang Ming, on the other hand, is the site of the first artificial reef in Latin America, a wreck dive that was created by sinking two Chinese vessels confiscated by the Mexican government for transporting undocumented immigrants. Bag the Big One Fishing has always been king in Los Cabos. Long before the area boasted luxury hotels, championship golf courses, and pampering spa services, fishermen were making their way to the southernmost point of the Baja Peninsula eager to try their luck with the abundance of big-game fish, particularly marlin, in the waters off Cabo San Lucas. Annual summer and autumn tournaments like Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore, Los Cabos Offshore, and Black and Blue may draw the biggest crowds and pay out the largest purses— Bisbee’s Black and Blue is the world’s richest fishing tournament, with million-dollar-plus payouts each October—but the fishing is excellent all year off Los Cabos and the neighboring East Cape, and local companies are increasingly attempting to promote sustainability by encouraging catch and release policies.
