There are the full range of operators that will take you there, from $40 to 200 each, depending on your pocketbook and taste. Find operators at La Paz and some at Playa el Tecolote ready to go.

Great place to visit by Panga for snorkeling, spearfishing. Especially nice in the summer with clear water and enough fish life, turtles, and occasionally a Pekagic to keep family happy. Spearfishing can be good depending on season, weather, and your abilities.

Amazingly clear water with sheltered anchorages. Plenty of sea life when snorkeling , and not TOO far to travel from La Paz.

This tour was the highlight of our trip to La Paz. Booked through Espiritu Baja Tours and they out did themselves on every part of this trip. Punctual pick up at hotel, easy ride out to the island, stopped to share history and stories of the island, snorkeling with sea lions and fish were the best we have ever seen.... More

It is a bit pricey for what you get. The boats are okay, and the guides are very nice. May be worth doing once.

Went Snorkeling with Costa Baja adventures. Great trip, Great Crew and a must see! Boat ride was approx. 1 1/2 hours to get there and smooth water. The bay is more like a Lake than Ocean.

We went to Isla Espiritu Santo with Marlin Adventures located on the malecon in La Paz. They run a superb operation ---great captain, great boat, well timed, and knowledgable about the area. This is NOT to be missed if one goes to La Paz, and I would also give Marlin Adventures 5 stars too.

If you go to la paz, you MUST go to Isla Espiritu Santo! Dive with the sea lions, watch the whales, the fish, and have a great meal on the beach!

If ever you have the chance to see this beautiful island, or even better-circumnavigate it by boat, drop everything and say yes. Your eyes and spirit will thank you!
