Our group traveled from Punto Punasco to Cabo San Lucas, cruising 800 miles
down the Baja peninsula and making 25 dives along the way.  Conditions
varied greatly in terms of water temperature, current, and visibility.  The
northern areas were generally cooler than the southern areas in terms of
water temperature.  A 5 ml suit and full hood kept me comfortable the
entire time. 

The Sea of Cortez is known for its unpredictability both in weather and
dive conditions. However the boat is sturdy, roomy, and well appointed. The
Rocio del Mar is owned by a family, not a corporation, and most of the
current crew were involved in the construction of the boat.  The staff is
very responsive to suggestions by guests and many changes have been made to
the boat since I sailed with them just a year ago.
