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.
