First day of diving, near Lands End off Cabo San Lucas, at end of dive
after number of divers had called it quits we were watching a reef shark
below us, suddenly a whale shark, maybe 20', came within six feet of us. 
Most exciting!  Reported to be highly uncommon, it was our Divemaster's
first sighting.  Also saw Sea Lions in same area.  Other dives near Lands
End we saw guitarfish, scorpionfish, sting rays, some interesting coral and
rock formations.  Visibility wasn't great.

Also took trip to Cabo Pulma one day to dive Sea of Cortez - about two hour
journey - at the end of a long long bumpy gravel road came to an area on
the coast with a restaurant and small diving operation.  Saw lots of morays
and turtles, big schools of Jack, lots of fish in general.  Was worth the
trip.  After diving, I noticed some fisherman snacking on something, went
to investigate and they were cutting slices of freshly caught tuna, dipping
in soy and lime sauce - excellent!

We went to Cabo for other reasons but were glad we went diving.  We would
highly recommend it as a destination - great restaurants and beaches.
