Comments We have been diving in Cabo San Lucas with 4 different dive operators and Sunshine is the BEST. They took wonderful care of us and we will be back every year. The whole staff is great but Jonatan (dive master) and Solomon (captain) are the best team I have ever been diving with.

I have 150+ dives but my husband has about 30 and we were with a friend with about 15 dives who hadn't been in the water in a couple of years. Traun stuck to her - adjusting gear and staying beside her. She said "That was the best dive I have ever made. Now I like scuba diving!" [this on a dive with about 15 ft visibility.]

I am 60 years old with back trouble - I love to dive but need assistance getting in and out of the water. The Sunshine staff is great. They carry all your gear from the shop to the boat, put it all together for you, change your tank between dives, disassemble at the end, and carry it all back to the shop where they rinse it and will store it if you are returning.

Previously we were in Cabo in October/November but this year we visited in June. The visibility is bad in June and the water is cold but there are more fish - the visibility and temps are better in November but there are fewer fish.

Nitrox is free, they have loaner dive computers if you don't have one (I do, so haven't used them) and take photos which they give you for free.
