Diving Cabo. Is it worth it?

I just got my feet back on the ground after an epic dive trip to Cabo San Lucas. Eight days and seven nights spent blowing bubbles with the amazing Nautilus Dive Tech team, all while enjoying the gracious hospitality and comfort of their private, three-bedroom, three-bath, on-site casa!

While I have many, MANY things to say about this trip, I thought I would just sum it all up in one brief post.

Where IS Cabo San Lucas?

For those edukated in the US, Cabo is at the tip of the little dangly bit just left of the country below us. For everyone else, Cabo San Lucas sits nestled between the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean at the tip of the Baja California Peninsula. 

There’s a rock formation which travels south east to the sea, and is appropriately called “Land’s End”. The iconic “El Arco” rock formation frames the confluence of the waters. It shelters a colony of sea lions. 

My Report:

An eight year Marine Corps veteran, Dr. Strand discovered Chinese medicine as a last resort when recovering from a military related injury. He has since dedicated his life to the practice of medicine; a doctor to all - a healer to many. In recent years he has turned to SCUBA diving as a meditation aid in his quest for ultimate peace. The desire to share that gift led to the creation of Spartan Scuba. Doc’s experiences and travels abroad impact not only his writing style, but his passion for life, scuba, and medicine.
