Based on the reviews on here, my friends and I made reservations with Marlin Adventures and we couldn't have been happier. We went out with Capitán Beto and Carlos and Luis. Shortly after leaving La Paz, our boat was met by some playful dolphins that swam around us and raced the boat for a while. We stopped at Play Tecolote... More

Diving trips are well organised, especially with captain Beto and dive master Luis. The quality of the diving gear is not good. The office does not make you feel like coming in. We went there upon recommandation of our hosts at the B&B. We were on the same boat as snorkellers, a bit crowded but the captain and dive master... More

The tour itself was amazing (we saw lot fishes, sea lions, dolphins, turtles, beautiful beaches and wonderful sea), but the professionalism of the staff was super! Carlos and his capitain explained us lot of interesting info, prepared for us a delicious lunch and took care of us for every small detail, demonstrating an admirable passion and high level of professionalism....

We did the sea lions tour with these guys and we enjoyed so much! They take care of everything from the the moment you leave ' till they bring you back. The guide and the captain were really kind helping us to see as much fishes as possible and giving us a lot of information. We had lunch on an... More

So I also tried to book thru Mar Y Adventures but they are more of a kayak adventure company so they set me up with Marlin Adventures and I was glad they did. It allowed me to meet a group of new people staying at a different hotel. There are also plenty of families from Mexico that travel to La... More

My wife and I had an incredible time on Marlin Adventures panga to Espiritu Santu. The panga departed on time and had adequate space for 8 guests and two guides, Alberto and Sergio. The panga was clean, well-maintained and expertly captained. The tour was as described on their website but with the addition of a third snorkeling site. The first... More

If you are ever in the La Paz, Baja California, Mexico area, you want to go to www.marlinadventures.net for your adventure/excursion needs! They have kind, helpful staff, great variety and pricing, and are honest and ethical. This is part of my email to them, after they were ethical enough to turn us down. They didn't want to take our money,... More

Yesterday I went diving. Everyone was waiting to get gear. Arturo, the instructor said "it's going to be a long day, but it will be amazing". He set the mood. On the boat Arturo pointed to dolphins "Tursiops truncatus is their scientific name". He then named all the rocks, points on this island and told historical stories. The lady next... More

We have used this company 2 times and would highly recommend them! The first time we went out (January) I was a bit hesitant getting in the water with the Whale Sharks. Sensing this, the guide took me into the water and held my hand, guiding me alongside these huge gentle giants. He did the same with my 14 year... More

We originally booked our trip through Mar Y Aventuras but they couldnt book the tour since they needed at least 4 people to go and my wife and I were the only ones that were willing. The company then asked us if we wanted to go snorkeling which we agreed to but little did we know that it was with... More
