I started doing the Island Hopper trip in 2009. I have done it every year........ and as I say, although the same trip, it is always different. I have had the same guides and crew and they remain awesome. They are so in tune with your needs and wishes...... just ask, and they provide. I cannot say enough about the... More

The guide Carlos and staff were amazing observant, knowledgeable. The food was great and I agree a cookbook should be made from an earlier review. Swimming with whale sharks, sea lions, kayaking and fishing were just a few of the activities. It is like being at camp again with a national geographic naturalist kick.

Took my family on a day long boat trip to snorkel with the whale sharks and go to Isla Ispiritu and snorkel with the sea lions. We had a great time. The sea was warm with our wet suits (provided) on.

Mar Y Aventuras organized a great trip. We formed our own group and kayaked/boated down the Sea of Cortez. The guides, Carlos and Hugo were fabulous- very knowledgeable and skilled. They certainly enhanced the trip. The food was delicious with emphasis on lots of fresh seafood. We would definitely recommend this trip.
