Comments Sunshine Dive and Charter were great again (went out with them before) - and now in a new, very convenient location right at the marina in the Hotel Tesoro.

We did six dives in two days, and although I've been at the dive sites in Cabo many times it was really great again. At landsend the big bait ball was swirling, Pelikan Rock again awed with teaming, colorful fish, and the best (plus a first for me in Cabo!): Five sea horses at Neptun Finger!! Extra very cool.

Visibility was first rate, the water warm and I didn't need a wet suit.

Lars Helten, the extremely experienced, knowledgeable and capable owner of Sunshine Dive and Charter (and, full disclosure, a fellow German expat) even showed me a new dive site (Cabeza Ballena) 20 min up the shoreline from the marina. Viz was medium due to some swells, but nice fan corals and a bunch of bass, reminding me a bit of Northern Cal diving (minus the kelp obviously). Always fun to see new sites!

All in all again a fully satisfying experience with Sunshine Dive and Charter.

I can highly recommend them to both the experienced and the novice diver. Very solid, well run operation you can trust.
