We did 2 outings with May y Adventuras, over 2 different days. The first was Snorkelling & Kayaking at Isla Espiritu Santo (1-day trip) and the other, Swimming with Whale Sharks (half-day trip). We chose a few of the best companies doing these tours based on the good reviews written by others on the TA site. However, after having written... More

Our family of 7 had an amazing trip! The sign up and prep were smooth and painless. Benjamin gave us a briefing and history before we left which was very interesting and prepared us for the day. We left the dock promptly and saw a whale shark within 15 minutes! It was absolutely exhilarating to swim along side such a... More

Over the years my family and I have taken about 6 or 7 trips with Mar y Aventuras and have always had a wonderful time. This March we went on the Island Hopping trip from LaPaz to Loreto. It was the first time for my daughter who is 12, but my wife and I had done it before. We can't... More

The food was very good, and the guides and boat captain, Angel were very helpful. Snorkeling with the sea lions was great, but it was disappointing that we were taken to Isla Ballena for the only other snorkeling opportunity, rather than Partida Island. A bench or some other way of keeping gear off the sand floor or the tent would... More

Dear Guest, It's great to hear how much you enjoyed the food, guides, captains and snorkeling at Los Islotes on your trip with us! I'm not sure why you were disappointed with snorkeling at Isla Ballena vs Isla Partida? Our guide Miguel, who led your trip, has over 30 years guiding in this area. I guided there for 18 years...

In this wild area it must be difficult to make all the arrangements for food, equipment and personnel work smoothly, but these folks did it wonderfully.

Completed the snorkelling & wildlife safari during a short visit to La Paz in Feb 15. From the initial online enquires to the day itself, I found MYA a highly professional organisation. They are located a little off the main strip in La Paz but well worth the diversion. In comparison to other tours I took in La Paz their... More
