Took one day to dive Los Islotes and Espiritu Santu out of La Paz. Long
boat rides, which also makes the diving pricey. Los Islotes was really
nice, great viz, plenty to see. The main attraction there are sea lions, I
was skeptical about that as I hate Stingray City and any place where the
fauna act like underwater squirrels at the park. These were hilarious,
though, and I admit to having to clear my mask a few times from laughing
when they would grab my wife's fin or swim through her bubbles.

Also dove the Fang Ming wreck off of Espiritu Santu, it was OK, not that
exciting. The boat ride out, past and among the islands, was really
beautiful. Easy to imagine Baja years ago, before Cabo San Lucas became
spring break / condo hell.

Two dives doesn't make this chock full of info, but glad we went. Cortez
Club was a good operation.
