    My fiance wants to do part of our honeymoon in Cabo but I have one question I need a very honest answer too.

    Is the ocean water in Cabo crystal blue? I know it isn't like the Caribbean, but I was wondering if you dive off of Cabo do you have at least 20-30 feet of clear visablity. I love to dive but I need at least some visablity or I get weirded out.
    I know this is the pacific, so I assume the water is pretty foggy.

    Does anyone know the answer. I would totally appreciate any info. Online sites don't really give a clear answer, and I have never really heard of Cabo being a great place to dive.

      I can help on this one as I live here and I dive. I have done quite a bit of diving in Belize (Caribbean) and loved the reefs and clear vis there. I have not been thrilled with the dive sites here in Los Cabos. Most if not all the local diving is done in the Sea of Cortez and not the Pacific. Depending on the time of year visibility will vary but it is not the Caribbean. If you are getting married in PV you should check out Belize for diving if that is the focus.

        Thank you. Is there anywhere is specific you would recommend in Belize both to stay and to dive. We are looking at Victoria House in San Pedro and Turtle Bay (Frances Ford Coppola's Resort) in the southern area.

        Any suggestions would be highly recommended.

          I have not Dove, but snorkeled in May and it was somewhat cloudy but still enjoyable. If I had to guess it was easy to see about 15 feet, could see farther but pretty cloudy.

            I definitely recommend Belize too if you want to dive. We got certified and dove a lot in Ambergris Caye (which is where San Pedro is) and the diving was amazing - on our certification dives we were swimming with sting rays and nurse sharks. The visibility is great and we saw so much. My fiance dove the Blue Hole there also and he said it was really cool - I was too scared back then b/c it was so deep. We dove with Amigos Del Mar in San Pedro - they were great, but this was 5-6 years ago.
            We also dove with Turtle Bay and it was really good diving also- but Ambergris Caye was a little better.
            We went to Cabo 3 years ago and dove twice there - it was okay, but not that great. But the nightlife in Cabo is better and the resorts are more luxurious there also..
