A little late but.........nice trip report. How nice that PV is so close to Mismaloya Beach. I stayed in Nuevo Vallarta and the length/time of the trip to get to Mismaloya was a deal breaker for me.
We dove with PV Ocean Tours,
PV is a place I can go with our timeshare so I have a couple of questions in case I get that way again.

1. Because of the shape of the bay, would you say that leaving from Mismaloya Beach instead of PV marina, cuts about 20 minutes off of boat rides to sites you went to?

2. Agree with @drrich2 about the website not being as complete as it could be. The price list indicates a price for a tour, such as Los Arcos - is the price for 2 dives at that site?

3. Were you able to dive your air or was there a time limit?

The water gets a lot colder then, so a 7 mil suit may be preferable in December or January, but the chance of seeing whales makes it an appealing proposition.
I dove with a 5mm in March several years back at the Las Caletas site. Temp got to 70º F at depth. If I had been diving several days, a 7mm probably would have been perfect. 5mm in Dec/Jan would probably work.

We're going to Cabo in about a week and I know the water is continuing to get cooler, but there will be whales!!
