Comments All diving at Cabo is done from small outboard powered boats using backroll entry and BC removal to get back into boat. Only 6 - 10 divers on each boat. This operator is steps away from harbor and almost everyone speaks good English. Divemasters and boat captains at Land's End are eager to help, will do everything for you if you like. We stowed our gear in their hanging area after each dive, they rinsed it and had it back on the boat the next day. No particular grouping of skill levels but they weren't concerned about bottom time so more experienced people could stay down as long as they wanted. Most of dive sites are a few minutes from harbor and are generally pretty well trampled. Plus side of this is that shore intervals are done back at the harbor so food/drink is easy to come by. There are public showers right next to harbor (by cruise ship pier) to rise off salt. Lots of fish, especially if you feed them. Generally no current unless near the point between Pacific and Gulf. Dive operator provided bottled water on the boat after diving. If possible, ask to go east from harbor towards San Jose, to sites such as the Blowhole and Whale's Head, which have much less traffic. On our last day they took us to these sites per our request and the diving was great. Cabo is probably a 2 or 3 day diving desination, don't book anything longer or you'll be going back to the same places.
