Going to San Carlos Mexico Friday April 21st - Sunday April 23. Trying to go to Seal Island. Have already reserved a room with 2 beds at the Marinaterra Hotel & Spa. I will be driving to San Carlos early Friday from Tucson. Am interested in diving with Gary’s dive shop going to Seal Island at the minimum. Information on hotel and dive shop found here marinaterra.com/en/index.php and here garysdiveshop.com/intro.htm . You don’t have to travel with me or stay in my room but could be an option. I’m more or less putting this information so that you know I am serious and not going to flake out. Would consider using other charter in town. Please be pretty secure in your diving ability.

....if I were you I’d dive with Ocean Sports, their boat the Ocean Spirit can make it to San Pedro Island in less than an hour, but those old run-down boats from Gary’s take more than 2 hours to gt out there!

....water temp out there at the island will be around 70 degrees at the surface, but below the thermocline (below 30’) it will be in the low 60’s, so be ready for that!

...if you get a chance, stop by the Soggy Peso for a beer! Great place to watch the sunset! And once the sun dips into the Sea of Cortez, you can see the Tres Maria’s! It’s 3 mountains on Baja, but you can’t really see them until the sun is behind them! Beautiful site to see!

Will definitely check it out. You should come lol. Really hope I can find someone to dive with. Have been itching to dive for a while. Would hate to cancel the trip.
