Customs: When going through Customs in Mexico, you will be asked to press a button connected to a little traffic, if you get a green light you just walk through.

Dive equipment recommendations: The water temp averages 18-21C so be sure to pack your gloves, hood and boots plus either a drysuit or a very good 7mm. Guests rotate in and out of the shark cages every hour.
Clothing recommendations: Daytime temperature will be 20 - 25C, with cooler evenings, so one pair of sweat pants and a fleece jacket or sweater is a good idea. Be sure to bring a hat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen.
Tips for the crew: It is customary in this part of the world to leave a tip or "gratuity" for the crew on a liveaboard dive boat if you think the crew are deserving, worked very hard, and went above and beyond for you. Most guests leave a tip equal to 10% of the charter fee. Gratuities form a substantial part of the crew's income.
