Just returned from the Mar Y Aventuras West Coast Skiff Supported Trip on Espiritu Santo Island. One word to describe it: Fantastic. My standards are high having worked for another adventure travel company for a number of years. My expectations were exceeded and then some. Spectacular scenery both on land and in the sea. The guides were phenomenal: engaged, attentive,... More

Was very disappointed. We have now booked to swim with the Whale Sharks on 2 separate occaisons and received calls in the morning saying they had boat troubles and could not take us out. Don't waste your time - just book with another company.

Physically demanding, spectacular landscape, surprise sightings, excellent food! That IS my review. Only one other comment: the six guys who ran our trip (Miguel, Martin, Angel, Gilberto, Roman, and Balerio) were the best---completely cordial, highly competent, and frighteningly energetic.

My wife and I participated in Mar Y Aventuras' March 15-23 kayak/camp/snorkel Adventure in the Sea of Cortez. If you love paddling adventures, semi-rough camping, and snorkeling with sea lion's who blow bubbles at you, and nibble on your fins you will have the time of your life. We kayaked daily, dealt with winds and tides and currents, enjoyed good... More

My husband and I took a multi-day sea kayaking trip down the Baja coast in between Loreto and La Paz. This portion of coastline is wild and mountainous, and the sea is rich with marine life of all sizes and colors. May y Adventuras provided outstanding trip leadership and organization. The food was great, too. Our fellow-kayakers were an international... More

This experienced group of guides brought the beauty of the Sea of Cortez to life as they provided a safe, fun, diverse experience for all of us. The equipment was above average, the food and sanitation excellent, and the overall days purposeful but unrushed. For me alone with the 7 day trip (total 10 days with travel), hotels, taxi, bus,...
