All the details were taken care of so we could get there and "go". Transportation was easy and effecient. The whale camp was great glamping. Dynamic whale watching excursions and peaceful kayaking/bird watching in the estuaries were wonderful counterpoints.

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.

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.
