We were very leary about the diving in Cabo, we had only heard that the
conditions ok at best. Our experience was one of the best dive trips we
have ever made. Underwater Diversions delivered a level of support that we
had never encountered. They carried your equipement to and from the boat,
they cleaned our gear after the dive and stored it for us. They arranged
dives based on the conditions and the experience of the divers. They
realized that divers profiles differ and made arrangements for those who
could stay down longer could while keeping everyones safety in mind. Their
knowledge of the area and where and when quality marine life could be found
was second to none. We had made preliminary arrangements with the dive
operator prior to our trip. They refused our money until we had completed
the week so that they could give us the best possible packaged based on our
actual dives, not what we thought we would do. We took a day trip to La Paz
and were able to snorkle aprox 2 hours with 7 whale sharks followed by 2
dives with hammerheads - an absolutley incredible day of diving. My wife
had problems with her regulator and they provided her with a replacement,
transferred her computer to the new setup and refused to charge us rental
for the gear. All in all, an incredible diving experienc.
