Comments The owner, Oscar Hernandez does everything to make sure you have a good dive. The maximum number of divers we had on the boat at one time was 6, and we returned to the marina after each dive for additional tanks (although there were always spare tanks on the boat). The dive sites included the North Wall, Lands End, and Pelican Rock, all about 5 minutes from the marina. The bait fish at Lands End were phenomenal! It was a moving wall of thousands of fish, that parted for your entry there were also a few dorado and bonito passing through). The sea lions kept their distance, but came by us several times. Saw 2 small manta rays and 3 eagle rays (divemaster Erick was great at seeing them), along with butterflyfish, puffers, porcupine fish/burrfish, parrotfish, Moorish idols, sergeant major, chromis, tangs, surgeonfish, coronetfish, small groupers, snappers, grunts, eels, and lobster.

My dive computer broke after the first day, so Oscar loaned me his
back-up. You can keep your equipment in their store, where it is rinsed, and wetsuits are hung to dry, ready for the next day of diving. The Hotel Tesoro lobby area is a maze of stores (including 4 other dive operators). Make sure you go to D-1 and Cabo Deep Blue!
