Diving Pelican Rock in Cabo San Lucas Marine Park
The Amigo Uno was scheduled to start the dive day by diving Pelican Rock in Cabo San Lucas Marine Park. Amigos Del Mar had a mixed group of divers going out on the Amigo Uno. The group consisted of eight people, six of whom were certified and two were making their first dive ever. They may be on the same boat but we split the groups up so they are enjoying two entirely different experiences.
Luis got his group of experienced divers ready and then they stepped off the dive platform and started their scuba experience by diving Pelican Rock in Cabo San Lucas Marine Park. Todays group saw a variety of fish, including snappers, groupers, Moorish idols, parrot fish – to name a few. They also saw the green moray eels. it is almost impossible to dive in the Cabo San Lucas Marine Park without seeing a green moray eel. Their second dive was at The Point – where we have the best opportunity to play with the sea lions.
The non-certified divers were escorted by Karen – a newly certified PADI instructor. They have already seen a safety video, but Karen still takes them through an extensive briefing and then gets them suited up and ready to enter the water. And then the dive starts!. The first step is to get them comfortable with their gear while on the surface of the water. And then they gradually submerge and wait to see what comes across their path. The instructor will point out various marine life – but their primary function is the safety of their charges. At the completion of the dive, they ascend together and, after the safety stop, enter the boat. And then they re-experience the dive as they review the experience while onboard.
What a great way to enjoy your vacation!
