Comments Electric diving- not for beginners. Lots of sharks, 7 different species. Huge pacific mantas, Hammerheads, Tuna, huge schools of fish- topography is unreal. Food was great, Crew even better, very professional. Been on this boat in the sea of Cortez twice. Lost an engine on the way back- made for a very long ride. Got back to the dock and got internet service to find out about the lockdown- Cabo airport was packed! Sacramento airport was a ghost town.
