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

We arrived in La Paz at the end of march, which is pretty late to watch and swim with the whalesharks. The trip left from the marina at Costa baja resort where we were staying. Fun Baja provided wetsuits and there were sodas & water on board. There weren't many whalesharks out there anymore, but after 2 hours we finaly... More

We had a great trip with Fun Baja and Carlos. We took the trip from LaPaz. It was a long day but well worth it. 6AM to 6:30PM, with about a 3 hour trip each way to Magadalena Bay. The trip was broken up with a stop about every hour, included breakfast and lunch. The breakfast was good, the lunch... More

We went out with this group two times. We took an excursion to balandra beach, which you can drive to, but the boat trip was so worthwhile. It included a snorkel stop, complimentary wetsuits, and an excellent guide, Sofia. She played with one of the kids on the beach while the rest o us climbed an enormous dune. She was... More

What an awesome experience! You have got to do this if you visit during whale shark season! FunBaja picked us up our hotel and delivered us back when finished. They were very friendly and professional. There were some other companies that charged a cheaper rate on the Malecon but their boats were not as convenient to get in and out... More
