Today Nautilus Dive Tech conducted an extended range tri mix dive to a local site in the submarine canyon.  Cabo San Lucas is an excellent location to conduct technical diver training.  The logistics allow for deep dives close to support facilities.  Several sites allow for decompression stops to be made near natural references all the way through the 10 foot stop.  The area has seven different deep dives available with in 10 minutes of the harbor.  

Today the swell was about 4-5 feet.  In shallow water the group experienced moderate current and significant surge.  The tidal exchange has been dramatic the last few days.  In shallow water the visibility was limited due to the swirling sand, but after 20-30 feet it cleared up nicely.  The group saw several diamond rays foraging in the sand together, a large school of moorish idols, schooling damsel fish, schooling goat fish, trigger fish, bonitas, sierra mackrel, and a giant bait ball of grunts.

Nautilus Dive Tech offers all levels of technical diver training.  For more information please check out our training page and contact us at:
