Coral Baja in SanJose del Cabo great & SanJose quieter than Cabo San
Lucas but not good location for a 'dive oriented' trip.  Better to go to La
Paz or get close to dive operation.  VistaSea Sports is small group
oriented with 6-pack style 130hp outboard & good shade.

Mark runs efficient, accomodating, safe operation from rather remote Buena
Vista, an hour's drive north of SanJose del Cabo & 45 minute boat ride
north of Cabo Pulmo dive area.  Our trip, one week after Hurricane
Henrietta wasn't a good example of what the diving might be.
Vis @ 15-20 feed & currents @ 3+ mph created less than optimum
conditions.  Boat captain, Diego, did a great job of monitoring diver
location & picking diver's up quickly, even though we were scattered by
strong currents.  Bat rays were entertaining & critters abound. Would
love to return & dive with these folks during "optimal"
conditions.
