We shoot digital so no facilities= no problem for us. As long as we could
recharge batteries we were great. Boats are pangas and were alittle tight
and bouncy at times. Hold on to your stuff!

Leon and his family made the trip so special. Really casual place to stay.
Food was outstanding! We never had the same lunch twice the 5 days we dove
and this was all packed and served to us while out on some cool island
during our SI.
Fish life was great. Large schools of Amber Jacks ,cudas,bait fish.
Great macro. Wide assortment of nudies. Just tons of Dolphin and Fin-backed
whales on the trips out.
Aero-California cancelled our trip home so we got to dive an extra day.
Turned out to be the best dives of the trip.
Next time I think I will plan to go a bit later on in the season. The wind
did not help the vis and it blew hard 3 of the 5 days we dove. The panga
dives were a bit rough but Capt.Kiki did a great job.Manolo the D.M. was so
helpful and took us to some interesting spots. Can't wait to go back!
