Absolutely Amazing experience at the Sea of Cortez

Had an amazing time aboard the Gallant Lady. The crew was very hospitable and also very down to earth. Silvia was attentive to everything, constantly asking us if we wanted drinks or if we needed anything else.  She would always have a smoothy ready for us after each dive, something I always looked forward to. 

The Divemasters, Stein and Celina, were very knowledgeable of the aquatic life in the area. Celina even hosted a fun game where she named 4 sea creatures and the first person to find them on the dive and show them to her would get a free drink!

There was a schedule of events for each day, but Captain Yahn and his first Mate Oscar would purposely interrupt the schedule (slightly) to allow us to take advantage of unique situations, like snorkeling with Dolphins. The food was absolutely amazing and they kept us well fed.

During my time onboard, I completed 15 dives including 2 night dives. During one of the night dives I was able to witness a Moral Eel devouring its dinner. However, the most memorable experience for me was interacting with Sea lions, some of which came within a few feet of us. On one of the dives there was about 15 of them, each taking turns to come down from the surface to interact with us, but right before the end of the dive they all came down at once.

At the start of the trip I was with 7 strangers but by the end of the trip I was able to call them friends. Absolutely amazing experience, can not wait to do it again.
