Awesome experience. Very good boat with 225 hp motor and life vests, was the best boat I saw doing tours that day. Very good suits, snorkel gear and fins. The operators kept us away from other groups and we had multiple sharks to ourselves. The guys spoke good english and told us they have counted 26 whale sharks in the... More

We went for a day trip with Martin as a captain and Jaziel as tour guide. We really enjoyed the special attention they had for us when we saw a group of dolphins and made a stop to stay around them for a while. We really enjoyed the snorkeling too even if the lobos marinos were a bit lazy that... More

Went out to snorkel with whale sharks. Did some shopping and was a good deal compared to others. Showed up at their shop, walked a couple hundred feet to the boat and away we go. 10 minute boat ride and we are already seeing hump back whales. 10 minutes later we are in the water with two 20+ foot whale...

We had a great time and saw a lot of whale sharks. We were stayed in Cabo, rented a car and drove to La Paz, no problem. Snorkel equipment provided was avg at best. Also we booked via the web. Some folks on our boat booked in town and paid $20 less than us. All in all it was great.

My family and I had an unbelievable time on the tour. Our tour guide Jaziel and our captain were excellent. They knew all of the hidden treasures around the Sea of Cortez such as the best coral reefs I've ever snorkeled in and one of the nicest and most beautiful remote beaches in the world. Jaziel and our captain knew... More

Here is the activity/day trip that you should NOT miss!! In fact, we loved it so much that we went twice during our two week stay in Cabo San Lucas. Both times we boarded the boat to Espiritu Santo at El Tecolote. The itinerary and the routing depends a lot on whether there are divers on board, and also who... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, were fortunate enough to book a trip to Espiritu Santo with Marlin Adventures out of La Paz. Jahziel the guide and Sergio the captain are two very talented individuals. Jahziel is VERY knowledgeable about the local geology and ecology and was able to answer every question we asked and more. It's clear... More

Great deal (price-quality) Good professional staff (you can tell these guys love what the y do for living). The diving spots they chose were really good (specially the sinked boat). Daniel (dive master) did a great job. The ceviche was delicious.
