This was by far the neatest thing we did on our trip to Baja. Edith was incredibly helpful in booking the reservation. I don't have a lot of experience snorkeling so wasn't sure I'd be able to get very close but Erick (our guide) was super and helped me keep up, essentially pulling me along. My husband got face to...

We did both the whale shark snorkel and the seal lion swim with this group, and they were wonderful. Let me start by telling you about my experience and then I will address some of the concerns I read about in other reviews. First off swim with baby seal lions, awesome!! So we were lucky enough to have our own... More

Seeing whales for the first time was so beautiful. The mother whales were swimming with their babies, It was such an amazing feeling to experience their joy. Being so close to the whales you really got an idea of their personalities. They're sweet, loving creatures and deserve to be admired.

This trip with Fun Baja was a last minute decision for us. Our guide was punctual picking us up from the hotel. We were only 4 people on the boat + guide and driver. The ride to the island was fairly smooth, coming back a bit rougher. Fun Baja seems to be more expensive than other companies, for that you... More

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
