The trio cost 800 Pesos as far i remember; Lunch is included in the price - the ceviche was quite good. I would have really appreciated if the triop... More

I highly recommend Marlin Adventures for a whale shark adventure. The experience exceeded our expectations and everyone we dealt with at Marlin Adventures was friendly and professional. We arranged the trip ourselves via email exchanges and drove to La Paz from our hotel in Todos Santos. It was a bit of a challenge finding the Marlin Aventures office on the... More

I really liked going out with Marlin to see and swim with the sea lions at Espiritu Santo. The trip was fun, the guide (Jaciel) was always positive and encouraging, and it was an overall good day for us. I would recommend their service to friends and family. One thing though: the snorkeling gear we were given was not of... More

We went scuba diving and it was worth every penny! Sophia was a great scuba instructor. It was my first time going and I was a little scared but she made feel at ease. I would recommend to everyone.

During our three-month stay in La Paz, a hiatus from Alaska's winter, a friend and I have many friends and family members visit. In the last two weeks we took two groups of visitors out to snorkel with the whale sharks in La Paz Bay, both times with Marlin Adventures, and with Jahziel as our guide, and Martin, as boat...

Went to La Paz for a friend's wedding, and this tour was highly recommended. It did not dissappoint. We had a large party so 4 boats were needed. Our Captain/Guide was super enthusiastic and took the time to explain and show us the sights. We saw several whales, and our Captain seemed as excited as we were to see them.... More

I can't say enough about this boat excursion. I went to Mexico for a wedding and this was the featured activity and couldn't have been happier. I got to see whales close enough to photograph. Swimming with the sea lions was amazing too! The instructors were knowledgable on so many things, so it was not only fun, but intellectually stimulating... More

I love these guys! Roberto and his team are the best! We took 4 boats for a group of 36 during our wedding and everyone love them. I have taken several trips with them and can't say enough. Do not try any others, these folks are pros! We saw about 6 whale sharks and even humpback and blue whales! I... More
