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.

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
