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!
