Comments I didn't come to dive but thought I would go out at least once. I chose Cabo Adventures because they have a free shuttle from the hotel which is about 20 kilometers from the port. Taxis are fairly expensive so this is the best bet if you are far from the dive center. They have a huge and I would say well run operation with a fleet of shuttle buses to support many other activites other than diving. BCD rentals were weight integrated. Depth gage was not too accurate so I was glad I had my Suunto Stinger watch. Dive masters prepped our equipment. First dive was 3 per dive master and second was 6 per. Visibility was not that great but on the plus side we couldn't see all the other divers in the water so it felt more intimate. Saw two sea lions frolickig underwater, trumpet fish, stone fish, eel, white tip reef sharks, puffer fish etc.
