Cabo Pulmo, is almost certainly, THE MOST SUCCESSFUL REEF RESTORATION program in the Western Hemisphere, and maybe the world!
In 1995, a smallish, underwater national park was formed by the Mexican government at the request of the fishing families of the tiny village of Cabo Pulmo. Since then, no fishing, or anchoring, has been allowed within the 27 square miles that comprise this underwater park.
Within two decades, the reef sprung back to life in an amazing way. Fish returned, spawned, and grew to maturity in huge numbers, along with turtles, dolphins, and sea lions. According to Octavio Aburto, the marine biologist at the site, sea life has grown by 500-fold! This is the largest growth rate ever recorded in any protected marine environment worldwide. The reef is now alive with activity. Coral and sea life have become incredibly abundant. Fish swirl in large schools around snorkelers and divers alike. There is great variety in these shallow depths. This is a story that needs to be told and retold, shared, and shared again.
The example set by the little town of Cabo Pulmo, located at the southern end of Mexico’s Baja peninsula, dramatically delivers hope for the world’s oceans, as it simultaneously provides each of us, with an opportunity to enjoy its magnificent underwater riches.
Cabo Pulmo is a short two-hour ride from the beaches of the world-famous Cabo San Lucas. An excursion to snorkel or scuba the waters of the national park, ranks right up there with sailing the inside Sea of Cortez on the incredible Baja Cat sailing catamaran. Both are very literally, THE EXPERIENCES OF A LIFETIME!!
