Well, it started off great! I emailed back and forth with Fun Baja and organized all of our trips through them, including a customized private day tour. They responded promptly and that side of things went smoothly. What I am extremely disappointed is the fact that we overpaid. I contacted Fun Baja immediately after our return back to the States...

This was one of the best animal experiences we have ever had. We wanted to do this for years and now that we have done it can't think of a good reason why it took so long! Fun Baja arranged a driver (there were only 2 of us) and Samuel picked us up at our hotel in La Paz early... More

I've used Fun Baja on three trips now. They are professional, detail oriented, very convenient to the Costa Baja Resort (in the same marina) and easy to work with. The owner truly understands the dive industry. Fun Baja has the largest fleet of boats in La Paz, all in good working order. They also offer camping at Espiritu Santo with... More

We took this trip from La Paz to Madgelena Bay with Samuel. The whales didn't disappoint and pit driver was great. Being sprayed by the blow holes and having the your whales roll sideways so they can eye ball you. We were there in mid January the baby grey whales were either just born or still waiting. If we had... More

Called same-day in the a.m. and got our own boat at 1 p.m. for the four of us to go whale shark diving. The staff made it so easy and were so friendly! We went in Bay of La Paz on a short boat ride and then literally a guide jumped in the water with us and brought us to... More

We went out with 14 family and friends. The boat was comfortable and the captain was excellent. The guide took great care and went out of his way to make sure my friends 11 year old daughter was comfortable in the water and got as close as possible to the animals as possible. We saw many whale sharks and a... More

I booked via email with Fun Baja before our trip to arrange for a dive day or two. As the trip date approached, contact was good to make sure we were on board and that nothing had changed. My kids had backed out, so it was great to make sure adjustments could be made on their end. Fun Baja is... More

We participated to Whale- Shark watching on July 28,2014. Before my making the reservation, the staff explained about the possibilities to be able to watch them very well. I understood and decided to go with them. Unfortunately we could not happen to Whaleshark but the staff suggested to have another activities. We could enjoyed to play with sealions and beach....

After seeing pictures of Espiritu Santo Island on a magazine cover I decided on a whim to go. We left out of La Paz with Fun Baja for 2 days of snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, and relaxing and 1 night in a nice, well-equipped tent camp. The camp served delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring fish that were caught that day,... More
