Possible upcoming Puerto Penasco trip

Hi everyone,

I am looking for more information from divers that have dove to Puerto Penasco. I am looking at possibly taking a trip there with my wife on Labor Day weekend for a short dive getaway.

My questions are:
Does anyone know of any dive shops or charters in Puerto Penasco and have any recommendations? It would be preferable if they spoke English seeing as I have forgotten most of the Spanish I once knew from high school and my wife only speaks English and broken French.
When is the best time of year to dive there?
Does Bird Island offer the best chance to see sea lions in the wild?
Is there a specific time of year that is best to encounter sea lions?
Any hotel recommendations or non-recommendations?
