Comments Great Sea lion encounters and Whale shark snorkel experience :) Came across thousands of common dolphins after our snorkel w/ whalesharks...Exceptional underwater scene includes ginormous sea horses, giant jawfishes (found one w/egg),electric rays, endless neon yellow colored black coral gardens and octopi/lobster galore...some even saw dolphin fish, frogfish, and mobula diving...Fantastic Crew & Captain...Service top notch and experienced crew are always there to help...Wonderful crew and Gorgeous boat, Delicious meals and the sweetest owner, Dora, present to meet and greet:) Sea of Cortez worth a visit & a relaxing destination and vacation indeed...easy to get to...and a quick hop on transfer shuttle from pheonix gets you across to puerto penasco in a breeze :) They also go to soccoro and we'll definitely consider going on this boat due to the spacious rooms, delish food and Top notch crew!

Sorry--I meant to write the week AFTER you guys! Also jealous about the giant jawfish with eggs! That must have been something!
