|First time back to SC since a Columbus Day trip in 2006. First, I shouldn't have stayed away so long. I was not afraid for a single second of anyone or any situation either there or while traveling (Mariposa crossing, toll road). I was only stopped once, very briefly and professionally, by military on the return trip.
As you'd guess from the main page averages of water temps, this was not the Windex-blue, boardshorts-only, see forever Sea of Cortez I had in early October a decade back. The sea was greener, in the mid-to-high 70s, with visibility about 25-30'. We were comfortable in full body wetsuits ranging 3-4mm. I tried just shorts on the first snorkel and regretted it within 15 min or so. Reef life was about the same in general, although triggerfish seemed less common than before. Snorkeled Martini Cove, Piedras Pintas, Aguila, and the ever-amazing sea lions at San Pedro (fantastic trip with Gary's).
Food was great. I was impressed by pretty much every aspect of the town - clean, convenient, welcoming.
I WILL BE BACK!
