Excellent organiziation of passengers on our cruise ship who needed to get to Mar y Adventuras for their various experiences. My husband and I lucked out and we had our guide all to ourselves. A very pleasant and informative morning was spent kayaking in the bay. Very reasonable price which also included snacks. Would highly recommended this company. Very professional.

We signed up for the 4-day kayaking, snorkeling and camping trip on Isla Espiritu Santo. We had a nice group (though 16 guests at a time is a bit more than I like). Nevertheless, Mar y Aventura did a great job! Our guides and crew were excellent - knowledgeable, energetic and easy-going; the canvas tents and cots were very comfortable;... More

As seasoned travellers and avid kayakers my son (age 13) and I can only say one thing- PERFECT! (I never write reviews - this is my first, but this company deserves one). All equipment was EXCELLENT (tents/cots/kayaks/paddles). My son caught fish each morning. Food was fresh and varied with P&J as a back up and popcorn at every "happy hour".... More

I most recently traveled to La Paz, Mexico just to see the whale sharks and Mar y Aventuras gave me the best day ever. I not only saw the amazing whale sharks but I snorkeled with sea lions, had a great lunch on amazing beautiful beach, and even saw humpbacks and a ton of dolphins on the ride out/back. Best... More

'Once in a lifetime' in a phrase that is often used but in this case I believe justified. We joined a tour of Espiritu Island in January 2015 and we were simply blown away by the whole thing.

While planning our recent trip to Baja (Christmas week, 2014), we got a tip from a family member who owns a house on the Pacific side to definitely experience La Paz and definitely take an all-day trip with Mar y Aventuras. We were assured that this is the most professional guiding company in the region, and that we would pay... More

We enjoyed every minute of our trip--loved snorkeling with the abundant sea life, getting to know the other guests, listening to stories around the table at night, and sleeping on the beach. The night skies were incredible. We'll be back for a longer trip!

Beautiful location, the guides were professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and the food was AMAZING.

Dear Guest, It's always disappointing for us to hear the weather did not cooperate during a trip. In recent years clients continually request shorter and shorter trips and with this comes the chance of not being able to fully enjoy all the activities available. With only 2 full days on the island the chance of the wind blowing the entire... More
