We had a great day trip to Espiritu. Benjamin was our guide and Alejandro was our captain. The tour was nicely run, the lunch was good, and the spots we visited were SPECTACULAR. On the way back, Alejandro rescued a juvenile frigate essentially drowning in the Sea of Cortez. He drove it back to a huge colony and set it... More

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.
