This just in from my good friend and diving partner Skip Stubbs, who has just returned from another of his excellent dive expeditions, this time visiting Mexico’s wonderful Sea of Cortez and Cabo Pulmo
Since 2001 we have also visited Cabo Pulmo national marine park, on the east cape of Baja at Cabo Pulmo, and stayed at Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort for land-based diving.
The park has been well protected since 1999 and it shows. Large schools of leopard grouper, huge gulf grouper, and large schools of beautifully colored reef fish, including porkfish, burrito grunts, and yellow snappers as seen in the photos. The diving is quite different from further north in the gulf, with many species not seen elsewhere. I highly recommend a visit for a few days or a week to enjoy the great place.
