I discovered Baja Outpost through its web page, but I picked it for my
diving vacation because of Leon Fichmans business-like manner on the
phone.  I was entirely satisfied with what I foundextremely comfortable,
quiet and well-appointed accommodations and well-prepared hot breakfasts. 
Leon maintains a wide-range of equipment to supplement what I had brought,
which was essential as the water is colder than I am used to.  The Baja
Outpost dive boats are equipped with big engines, a real plus when the dive
destination may be 20 miles distant.  And the Baja Outpost boatmaster,
Kiki,  is the best driver I have encountered, which is another advantage if
the wind should pick up during the return journey.  Among the unexpected
pleasures of the visit was a late afternoon meal of clams, fresh-picked
from the Sea of Cortez and roasted with cheese at the Baja Outpost kitchen.
 Diving is predictably unpredictable and so, though  I went to Loreto to
see giant mantas I was happy enough to see 5 of the 8 local species of
nudibranchs instead.  I look forward to a return visit.
