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.

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
