Comments I went to Cabo with a goal to photograph and dive with Pacific Fish as most of my dives have been with Caribbean fish. I found that Cabo provided a great opportunity for that. I knew the corals would not be up to par with some of my dive trips but I really wanted to see Pacific fish and that goal was more than met. I saw Moorish idol, golden groupers, 3 tail Damselfish, king angelfish, cortez angelfish 8 inch blenny, spotted and yellow puffers, see horses, very unique starfish, many Murray Eels, sea lions and some fish I still need to research! The highlight of the trip was the excursion to Cabo Pulmo which was organized perfectly by Dive Cabo. Thanks to our dive emaster Carlos, we were brought to dives at Cabo that had more numbers of fish than I have ever seen in one dive. We swam with schools of hu thendreds of fish and also saw schools of groupers. A highlight was golden groupers. The resident bull shark was not on the dive but I was not disappointed. The Sandos Finnestera resort was gorgeous and extremely affordable. Overall, it was one of the most affordable trips I have taken. We will definitely return on a regular basis!
