In Topic: Land based diving at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

We always used Baja Expeditions,

Not sure if they still run dive boats.

The coral reef out of LaPaz is Swanee reef. You also want to do Los Islotes, there you can see sealions

Gordo banks is very deep and way off shore.

We saw a blue marlin up close so it was worth it. If we had not seen it, it would have been a waste of a day and money.

I've done day dives around Cabo. I would waste my time.

I've heard and seen slide show from Cabo Puma, and it looks like it may be worth diving. Note it is not the only coal reef in the Sea of Cortez. There is a nice one you dive out of LaPaz.

La Paz is where you want to go diving. There is a nice packed highway there from Cabo. Takes maybe 2 hours to drive to.

Nice, I gave one away once on the board. Three people argued with me about the price.

Next time I would say 75$ with free shipping.

Disagree, you can shoot wide angle with one strobe.

You have to position the strobe more carefully, but with two you are more likely to get unwanted backscatter or to blow out one side of your image.

With one strobe you are more likely to not illuminate all of your image properly.

Both can work.
