We enjoyed two trips with Marlin Adventures, both with Jahaziel and Alan, and also Sofia when we visited Isla Espiritu Santos. Espiritu Santos is a natural wonder and we were lucky to visit on a day when conditions were perfect and we were able to enjoy some up close encounters with incredible marine life. It is the quality of the... More

Kudos to Jahaziel and Martin from Marlin Adventures in La Paz. Yesterday's adventure was mui fantastico! They both went out of their way to make sure 5 abuelos got to swim with the whale sharks but also to then follow a humpback whale who must have breached 30 times. They were very knowledgeable about the sea life. Great sense of... More

Today I embarked on a boat tour to Isla Espiritu Santos for some snorkeling, sea lion sightings and maybe whales. It took the crew over an hour plus to hand out masks and wet suits in their "office". We departed in a small old panga boat on the Malecon and then went to pick up another guest and crew member... More

We contacted company by email before our trip, but when we wanted to finalize booking, we were not able to get a response. On the day of our cruise stop, a lady at tourist information tent hooked us up with them. As I cannot swim, snorkeling has always been anxiety raising for me. The guide was extremely helpful. He held... More

Marlin Outfitters took a group, including me and my wife, out to snorkel with the whale sharks. This is a great trip, short boat ride (15 mins), and you get up close with the whale sharks. Roberto, at the desk, was helpful in encouraging us to wait for a low wind day, (not trying to push us into doing it... More

we did Espiritu santo snorkel excursion after the whale shark excursion because we were pretty ok with Marlin, but they send us to swim with sea lions without fins! We wanted to do it from Tecolote because is faster in car than to spend 40 minutes in the boat from La Paz so Roberto told us to go directly to... More

We would definitely highly recommend this experience - snorkeling with the whale sharks was fabulous! Making reservations was easy. They supplied all the needed gear (although we had brought some of our own) and made the trip a blast! We had Sergio and Jaziel, who were both a lot of fun and made sure all of us enjoyed our trip...

This was the highlight of our trip. Sure we went whale watching in Cabo and that was cool, but swimming with whale sharks??? The largest fish in the sea??? Are you kidding me??? Our pilot (Sergio) and guide (Jaciel?) were fun, extremely helpful and informative. Jaciel worked his butt off to make sure everyone had a once in a lifetime... More

We had an amazing experience with Marlin Adventures swimming with the Whale Sharks. Twice one swam right under me (not intentionally, but amazing nevertheless). Sergio, our captain, and Carlos our guide did a terrific job making sure that each client had an opportunity to swim with the whale sharks and not be in a position where they had to compete... More

Sergio, our captain, and Carlos, our guide, did a fabulous job in leading this snorkeling with the whale sharks trip. They made sure that the groups were small enough each time we entered the water, which was 6 times, for each of us to have a really cool experience swimming with the whale sharks. According to friends, they were also... More
