The dive conditions were not very good during my visit, but hearing stories
I missed some good diving by a week.  I guess there was storm south us
messing up the water.  The owner of the operation did everything he could
to make things comfortable.  I came with enough exposure for 70 degree
water, so the owner let me use a 3mm jacket at no charge while I was there.
 He also went out of his way to schedule a trip to Cabo Pulmo.  The
conditions there were much better.  Water temp. was in the 70's and the
vis. was 60' to 70'.  Fish life was much better as well.  If you are going
to Cabo, don't miss a chance to dive Cabo Pulmo.
