Today Nautilus Dive Tech conducted certified diver tours to a couple of the local sites in the Bay of San Lucas.  Dael led the group and Casey accompanied the divers using his Hollis Prism 2 rebreather.

On the first dive the group descended near Neptune's Finger and made a reciprocal heading/ multi-level dive.  The principal rock and the surrounding cleaning stations had a lot of activity.  Although the visibility could have been better, there was still a lot to see.  The group encountered several lobsters, jeweled moray eels, green moray eels, a large stone fish, guitar fish, schooling tropical fish and an extended visit by the bait ball of grunts.  During our ascent we saw several bonitas feeding on the bait ball.  In shallow water we road the surge during our safety stop playing chase with a school of moorish idols.

For the second dive we had hoped to dive Land's End bu the swell was more than 5 feet.  We opted to head back in to Pelican Rock for our second immersion.  During the shallow repetitive dive we met up with the resident white tip sharks, spotted an octopus, and found a sea horse.  Some of the group aborted the dive early due to a marginal camera housing leak...fortunately the patient (camera) survived to dive another day!

Check back from time to time for more trip reports and information about what sights there are to see here in Cabo San Lucas!
