Results of a 10-year analysis of Cabo Pulmo National Park (CPNP), published in the Public Library of Science (PLoS) ONE journal, revealed that the total amount of fish in the reserve ecosystem (the "biomass") boomed more than 460 percent from 1999 to 2009.

The leopard grouper and yellow snapper have congregated in masses. Thanks to Natalie & Sarah for diving with us this week and sharing this great grouper photo with Dive Master Juan Diego Rimero.
Present water temperature is 73 degrees at depth with no current. Other note worthy sightings were turtles, schools of puffer fish, king angle fish, colorful parrot fish along with hordes of colorful schooling reef fish.

With greatly improved conditions yesterday we sighted our first whale shark of the season.
Conditions for diving and snorkeling have so greatly improved. Our tours to Cabo Pulmo were 1 & 1/2 hours late in returning two days in a row. It was because nobody want to come home. Water temperature and vis have swung from below normal to better than normal in one week.
This week the water at Cabo Pulmo was up to 77 degrees with 60 plus foot vis.

Spring has arrived and conditions are improving daily. Yesterday at Punta Pescadero water temperature at depth was 72-73 degrees and visibility was 40 plus feet. The highlight of our dive was the sighting of a sea horse. Other other exciting sightings was an octopus and schooling mobula mantas. The mantas were so thick one jumped in our panga.
There are many humpback whales in the area right now. On most days during our boat rides to dive and snorkel sites we have been able to watch them breach and slap their tails on the water. It is a magnificent sight.

Noise from rays slapping on the water got my attention this morning. When I looked up the commotion they were making was amazing. The posted photo was snapped from the deck above our dive shop. It doesn’t really capture how incredible of sight it was. There had to rays that numbered in the thousands.
The water is still a little off color and a cool 69 to 70 degrees but with this beautiful weather we are experiencing I see good things on the horizon.
