We dived with Sunshine June 24-30 2012.  While we didn't go to Cabo
primarily to dive, Sunshine was a real find.  The level of service was the
best we've ever had from a shore-based operation.  Their divemaster Ryan
took personal charge of us, and did an outstanding job.  Nitrox and a CD
with pictures from our dives were included at no extra charge.  Sunshine
stored and cleaned our equipment for the week; they also transported it to
the dive boats for us, and set it up for each dive. There was a hot shower
in the dive shop for apres-dive. Everyone involved was pleasant and
helpful, and very safety-conscious.

The water was quite cold (62-67 F) and we needed 7mm suits with hooded
vests.  Water clarity ranged from 40 feet to 100+ on one really outstanding
dive.  We were told the water gets much warmer in Oct-Nov.  We saw lots of
fish and eels, guitar fish and rays.  No large pelagics, but we didn't go
the day they visited Gordo Banks.

All in all, a great dive experience given the location. I wouldn't
necessarily go to Cabo to dive, but if you want to scuba dive while you're
there, look no further!
