We went w. Mar Y' Adventuras and had an absolute great day of swimming, snorkeling, eating and sightseeing! The water was calm, the boat ride long (but broken up with little stops and/or commentary from our guide), and the swimming/snorkeling utterly fantastic! I, myself, had a sea lion swimming upside down underneath me through the cave section. It was so... More

My wife and I did the trip to the Espiritu Santo Island tour with Cabo Expeditions. Let me start by stating that this was by far the highlight of our trip to Los Cabos.

Took a tour out to this island where they not only take you to swim with the sea lions they educate you on your surroundings and landmarks. Lunch is usually provided on the tours. The larger boats usually have toys to float on where the smaller boats do not have the room for that. Either way this place is not... More

I really enjoyed the trip with them. Snorkling, Lunch on the beach. on the way to beach and snorkling, we stopped by some places to see something so that transportation period is little too long for me. my suggestion is they can concentrate more into shorkling and beach. Maybe 15-20min we can extend to enjoy snorkling or spending time on... More

A must do in La Paz, the captain and guide were fantastic. Swimming with the sea lions was a great experience. The boat is small, but works out to be a good thing as you get to enjoy chatting to everyone on the boat.

There are the full range of operators that will take you there, from $40 to 200 each, depending on your pocketbook and taste. Find operators at La Paz and some at Playa el Tecolote ready to go.
