Cabo Pulmo was only a short stop in a two week tour of the Region, and I
was aware prior to arrival, that this time of year would not offer the best
conditions (colder water, poorer viz, and more wind) than other times of
year. None the less, my dives with Carmel , an Israeli born multilingual
guide were fun and interesting shallow (30-45 ft) reef dives (reef being a
relative term: mostly rock and scattered coral growing on it here and
there) We saw schools of Jacks, lots of Puffers, a school of bat rays
soaring above, many guitarfish (rays) in the sand, large bump heads, a rock
mover wrasse, scorpion fish etc. Between dives, we chased down, and got
close to Grey whales: a Mom and 1 or 2 calves, that were obligingly
breaching and showing tail. I also snorkeled in a huge school of Jacks. One
dive reminded me of New England- cold with 15 foot viz- well I guess that's
a good day in New England!
Carmel had a friend's digital camera with housing, and kindly e-mailed me
some pictures of our dives, and the whales, that turned out quite well. The
rental gear was decent, the pangas well made (they drag them up on a rocky
beach- they must be tough) but minimal.
Our rental Casita with kitchen and great shower was really nice and a 2
minute walk to the beach. No bugs this time of year (though the bed had
mosquito netting) And always fabulous stars in the desert.
