This was an amazing experience. We drove from San Jose Del Cabo, which took about 3 hours. Great drive on wide highway. We booked a 1pm trip so that we didn't have to leave San Jose too early and so that we would be driving back in the daylight. The boat and equipment were great. We opted to wear the... More

Swimming with whale sharks had been on my bucket list for quite some time, so I was very excited to find this group, especially because they came so highly recommended on here. With good reason, great outfit, was about 8 whales the day we went. They are amazing creatures. Only a short ride out from the dock, so if sea... More

Dear fellow adventure traveler, We're thrilled to know we were able to facilitate your bucket list experience! Congratulations!

The trip had a nice start because the owner Mary had sent me a note that others in the group would be arriving in the Cabo airport (SJD) shortly after my arrival. We were able to connect by e-mail ahead of time and then have a beer on the patio outside the airport while the last person arrived and then... More

My friends and I visited Baja California Sur in December 2014. When I was setting up our trip I found out that whale sharks were going to be migrating in the Sea of Cortez while we were in Baja. I contacted several companies, but Mar Y Adventuras met our needs, wants and beyond. They have GREAT communication. When you deal... More

We had a trip of a lifetime with this company. They were easy to work with, friendly, and reasonably priced. We did the half day swimming with whale sharks adventure, although I would recommend the full day safari, as you get to go up close to the seals as well. The guide and boat driver were both professional and very... More

After doing a 5 day kayak tour with a different company which included swimming with a whale shark and the sea lions, I was eager to repeat those experiences. The 'wildlife safari' fit the bill perfectly. The panga captain was fine, and I thought our guide - whose name I am ashamed to have forgotten- was excellent. He did a... More

My husband and I have traveled to Baja several times. We consistently book trips with Mar y Aventuras because they offer great options for shorter trips or longer excursions to the best destinations in Baja.

This was a return trip last done 7 years ago. We had high winds which complicates a Island Hopping kayak trip like this but the excellent helpful crew always had alternative plans.
