Comments 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.
