Not many places you can do this. Great experience and great scenery to and from the island. Our tour also included a picnic on a beautiful, secluded beach. Try it.

My friend and I read about this as one of the trips to do in la paz. We booked through fun baja, as our hotel recommended them. I think we paid $105. The journey out to the island takes over an hour. We had glorious weather and the scenery of the coast line is just beautiful... When you arrive at... More

For the ultimate family get away and bonding experience, lease the beautiful Maranatha for an extraordinary holiday. Our family had a fantastic time on the Maranatha, it was 5 days of bliss, staggering beauty, excellent fishing and snorkeling, and the best family time ever.

If you are here in the Spring don't miss seeing the baby Frigates nesting. Absolutely amazing.We were lucky enough to be invited on a friends private boat, but it is really worth the price to pay the tour guides as well.

This was my most memorable place in Mexico! Isla Espiritu Santo is an absolutely beautiful island with a breathtaking beach. The water is as clear as ever and we got to snorkel with sea lions. There are small boats leaving to Isla Espiritu Santo close to La Paz so it's a bit of a drive if you are staying in... More

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

We saw Whale Sharks, (we swam with them earlier in the La Paz Bay) At the Frigate bird sanctuary we saw babies. juveniles and adults... 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. If you want to experience a National Geographic type moment, this tour if for you. The tour is basically an all day event. Our tour guide,... More

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
