Great place to break up a day on the water. Magnificent wonder of the world. Tie it in with snorkeling trip with whale sharks and sea lions and you have a life experience few could even imagine.

This trip was so worth the time and cost! Beautiful water that made us think we were in the Caribbean, snorkeling with sea lions and a variety of beautiful fish, the most healthy coral we've seen in years, watching dolphins play; this trip had it all! Great guides and the best snorkeling in years, due to protected environment. So glad... More

I've been to Espiritu Santo 2 or 3 times and each time it's an absolute thrill. The trip there is so enjoyable you almost forget the wonder of what is to come. Most often you will see whale sharks, dolphins and other sea creatures. The tours also take you in some of the caves and explain some of the rock... More

Wow! So much to see do and experience! Swam with manta ray's, sea lions, tons of fish and slept on white sand beaches. I can understand why joque Cousteau called the area the world's biggest outdoor aqaurium.

This is the 2nd time we have had Alan, our Marine Biologist Tour Guide and Saul, our captain of Espiritu Tours take us to Isla Espiritu Santo to snorkel with the sea lions. This time our 35 yr. old son went with us and he was so impressed. WOW. Everyone was amazed at how much information we received about the... More

Swimming with the "sea wolves" (in Spanish) was a true thrill. One female came right up to us and played, bumping me, swimming on her back below me looking up into my face, and patting my husband on the head with her flipper. Lunch was delicious, served on a gorgeous beach, and we loved seeing osprey nests and a frigate... More

While on a sea lion snorkeling trip, we cruised by Isla Espiritu Santo (spirit island). As you can see from the picture, there is a face in rock. According to the guide, the island has been the subject of legend for centuries - even prior to the appearance of missionaries and Christianity. They gave the island its current name. However,...

Baja y Espiritu Tours took us to Espiritu Santo. It's a very cool place, a desert island with unique geology and plenty of sea life. If you do nothing else in La Paz, go here. It's a protected national park, so take a responsibly run tour, don't just haul yourself over there.

Sunny days and starry nights. Kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and environmentally conscious camping. Cacti and canyons. Blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, sea lions, and dolphins. Like a miniature Galapagos (with the tortoises).
