Came in from Cabo for the day to scuba. Our hotel connected us with FunBaja. The drive took longer than expected and although they waited extra 30 minutes, they left without us. No fear... a private FunBaja charter was boarding and the group graciously allowed us to join and connect up with our original diving group. The dive was great.... More

Glad it was fairly calm with our trip. We had a wonderful guide and that made the trip, he was very knowledgeable. Had an excellent lunch on the beach, standing in clear water watching the fish dart in and out of my feet. Friends had the wonderful experience of swimming with the sea lions

I have a sailboat in La Paz. I love to take short cruises out to the island to enjoy the quiet beauty of the nights. The endless activities include snorkeling, hiking, bird watching, and the sea creatures from sea lions to whales are fantastic. Go anyway you can get there!!

Incredibly beautiful (and huge) island! We went with Marlin Adventures- they have a little shack on the beach of Tecalote'. Amazingly kind and knowledgable guides who cater to the interests of the guests on the boat. We saw whales, swam with the sea lions, saw turtles, beautiful snorkeling and crystal clear turquoise warm waters with white sand as fine as... More

The islands (there are three included in most boat trips) are a marvel. We snorkeled with seals off Los Isoletes, stopped at Ensenada Grande beach on Espiritu Santo, visited the Frigate bird rookery, and snorkeled off a reef. We were extremely fortunate toward the end of the trip to be very, very close to a pair of breaching humpbacks. They... More

Great for our family with 11 and 13 year olds. Took BajaFun tour of island. Actual time with sea lions about 40 minutes. Would have liked to stay longer. I recommend you spring the extra $200 and get the private tour because the boat is smaller, faster, and gets you more time snorkeling with sea lions. Nice lunch on a... More

We selected Mar Y Adventura to take us out to Isla Espiritu Santo for a day of kayaking and snorkeling. Our guide was Benjamin and our Panga Captain was Alejandro. They were a great team who assured our day was fabulous. The equipment, lunch, and trip planning was perfect. And a day out at the island is such a special... More

We went on the Isletas and swim with the sea lion tours with Baja Bay tours (which I already reviewed) and it was just wonderful. One of the owners of the company came out on the boat with us and he even made the best cerviche we have ever tasted!!!! Great swim with the sea lions, saw the huge frigate... More

Go kayaking or snorkeling out to Espiritu Santo with Mar Y Aventuras. Drive up the Cliff hugging San Juan de la Acosta road. Take a cool day trip to Todos Santos.

We did a kayaking/camping trip with BOA that circumnavigated Espiritu Santo Island. It was a challenging and wonderful trip. We had calm waters on the day we visited the caves and arches, just spectacular!
