great for camping and kayaking

Isla Espiritu Santo is still a great destination for families and others interested in getting away and taking it a little slower. Sea Kayaking, snorkeling, diving, fishing

We saw an amazing array of sea life, from the obvious (sea lions) to the unusual (numerous pods of various whales species, manta rays, & hundreds of dolphins!) Pick the boat company carefully so you are assured good service & a memorable outing. If you do, the price will be more than worth it!

Enjoyed a day trip to Espiritu. Ther are different companies with excursions to the islands. The high end ones leave on time, the others 'fill' up as they can and get a boat for your group.

Such overwhelming natural beauty. It's a spiritual experience that will leave a lasting impression. The landscape, plants and animals are all so incredible that there are few places in the world that could rival it's beauty and diversity.

$50 per person from Tecolote beach, for a boat ride out to this island (we used Azul Tours) You will see mobula's, dolphins, you will snorkel with sea lions, you will visit a pirate cave, and you get lunch and beers, on a beautiful beach....go you will be happy!

I would discourage anyone booking with SunRider. They do not have safety as a prime concern and in particular the dive guide Sergio. Two major issues: 1) They encouraged an older man who did not even swim to come into the water in this challenging environment. They strapped on a life jacket and then told him to lean on another...

My boyfriend and I went to the island with Fun Baja. We snorkeled and paddle boarded. The best part of the trip was the incredible sea life and having your own personal beach.

We took a tour from the harbour in La Paz with the Sun Rider company out to Isla Espiritu Santos to swim with the Sea Lion colony and sight see along the way.

The Island is a must see. Charter a boat for the day, take your family and explore this natural treasure. So much to see. Don't miss it if you come to La Paz.
