Comments Leon and his family made the trip so special. Really casual place to stay. Food was outstanding! We never had the same lunch twice the 5 days we dove and this was all packed and served to us while out on some cool island during our SI.
Fish life was great. Large schools of Amber Jacks ,cudas,bait fish.
Great macro. Wide assortment of nudies. Just tons of Dolphin and Fin-backed whales on the trips out.
Aero-California cancelled our trip home so we got to dive an extra day. Turned out to be the best dives of the trip.
Next time I think I will plan to go a bit later on in the season. The wind did not help the vis and it blew hard 3 of the 5 days we dove. The panga dives were a bit rough but Capt.Kiki did a great job.Manolo the D.M. was so helpful and took us to some interesting spots. Can't wait to go back!

UW Photo Comments We shoot digital so no facilities= no problem for us. As long as we could recharge batteries we were great. Boats are pangas and were alittle tight and bouncy at times. Hold on to your stuff!
