My wife and I did the boat tour of the Island, which we arranged via our hotel in La Paz. One of the best days of life I have to say. An amazing place to cruise round. We saw dolphins, marlin, stingrays, whales etc., as well as snorkelling with the wild sea lions. To top it off lunch was in... More

We drove from Cabo to La Paz specifically to visit the Isla Espritu Santo. Worth the drive. A must see for anyone who snorkels or SCUBA dives.

This was by far the highlight of our Baja vacation. What an amazing and special place. We swam with the sea lions, learned so much about the history of the island and surrounding islands, and saw blue footed boobies. This is a very special place. We went with Espiritu Baja Tours and they are fantastic! I hope to get to... More

The boat was immaculate, the guide Lorenzo was very knowledgable and helpful. Beautiful Sea Lions and pups, starfish and coral. Food on the island was prepared fresh and served to our table by friendly amigos. Beach clean, kayaks and boards readily available to only our boat. Recommend highly!

There just wasn't that much to see on the island. My real adventure was the trip out to dive around it. I indulged myself in a couple of days of diving around this desert island. It was already hot by the time our boat departed at 8am, but ocean breezes cooled us along the way. We saw pods of dolphins... More

We had an opportunity to go diving here. It was so much fun! Barking Sea Lions and playful pups. So many fish to see as well. Such a lovely adventure.

We were a party of 6 ages 17 to 48 and booked a private tour with Alan from Espirito and Baja tours. It was the best snorkel trip I have ever done! For a few bucks more you can have your own boat, tour guide and private experience. Alan grew up in the US close to our home in Santa... More

We spent the day snorkeling around the island. Stunningly beautiful. We swam with the sea lions, picnicked on a deserted beach, swam in gloriously clear, blue water. We booked for a full-day and we were not disappointed.
