When booking a two tank tour in Cabo Pulmo, this is how we organize the day.
We meet the divers at 8.45am in Cabo Pulmo, usually at El Caballero Restaurant if you drive from Los Cabos or La Paz. You will have time to take a coffee and we can start to discuss the dive plans for the day. From there, we go to the beach (500 meters distance) where we have the boat, and access to bathrooms and showers.
You meet the dive guide and the boat captain and try your rental equipment. When all the divers are ready with their equipment checked and on the boat, you will be given a dive briefing.
After the briefing, you will walk to the beach, pass by the Marine Reserve Ranger Station and board the boat (200 meter walk). Dive sites are close to the beach, 10/15 minutes boat ride in average.
After the first dive, you will spend the 45 minute surface interval on the boat: The whole tour lasts three hours approximately from when you board the boat to your return to the beach.
What to bring:
Sunglasses and hat
Sun lotion (preferrably biodegradable)
Long sleeve shirt
Cash for local expenses (restaurants / gift shops, etc..)
Dive certification card
There is a cooler on the boat with water and cookies.
