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

This outfitter was amazing. My wife and I visited La Paz as part of a cruise. We didn't take the cruise-sponsored shore excursion, thank goodness! These guys were 1/3 the price of the cruise excursion, and we were the only ones on the boat. Carlos and Serge took us out into the bay and we rode around for about 30... More

We had a great time with Alan and Sergio. They are very professional, informative, and kind. Although we are here in September which is an off season for seeing the whale shark we had an amazing time swimming with sea lions and snorkeling around the Espiritu Santos! Muchas gracias!

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....
