Comments great diving , service and unique sealife. Sea lion diving at Los Islotes is unique to anywhere in the world. Sea lions are used to scuba divers and interact freely with divers. sites are very fishy with large schools of various fish on every dive. Pelagics are common and you never know what will show up. If you want Caribbean color, don't go. Sites are rocky but the fish life more than makes up for lack of coral. You will be looking in the ID book after every dive because you will see stuff here that is no where else. The boat is old but is a workhorse and the perfect liveaboard. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable with plenty of storage. Full bathroom with huge shower. Avoid rooms 1&2 as the chain from the anchor will scare the **** out of you. Food is great and variety wonderfull. We will be going back for sure-- Fantastic dive masters and crew
