Two highlights of the trip were diving with the sea lions and we also had a
45 minute snorkel encounter with whale sharks on the way back to the dock. 
Nice boat although a little cramped topside when you have a full complement
of divers.  Rooms were very good compared to other liveaboards.  Diving is
out of skiffs.  Diving on the Sea of Cortez trip is not all that varied so
things get a little boring after a few days....but, there were the
highlights noted above.  Bus trip to and from Cabo to La Paz is long but
stories of difficulties in flying out of La Paz made the trip necessary.
