My wife and I had an incredible time on Marlin Adventures panga to Espiritu Santu. The panga departed on time and had adequate space for 8 guests and two guides, Alberto and Sergio. The panga was clean, well-maintained and expertly captained. The tour was as described on their website but with the addition of a third snorkeling site. The first... More

If you are ever in the La Paz, Baja California, Mexico area, you want to go to www.marlinadventures.net for your adventure/excursion needs! They have kind, helpful staff, great variety and pricing, and are honest and ethical. This is part of my email to them, after they were ethical enough to turn us down. They didn't want to take our money,... More

Yesterday I went diving. Everyone was waiting to get gear. Arturo, the instructor said "it's going to be a long day, but it will be amazing". He set the mood. On the boat Arturo pointed to dolphins "Tursiops truncatus is their scientific name". He then named all the rocks, points on this island and told historical stories. The lady next... More

We have used this company 2 times and would highly recommend them! The first time we went out (January) I was a bit hesitant getting in the water with the Whale Sharks. Sensing this, the guide took me into the water and held my hand, guiding me alongside these huge gentle giants. He did the same with my 14 year... More

We originally booked our trip through Mar Y Aventuras but they couldnt book the tour since they needed at least 4 people to go and my wife and I were the only ones that were willing. The company then asked us if we wanted to go snorkeling which we agreed to but little did we know that it was with... More

Marlin did a great job. Javier and Alan were safe, fun and knowledgeable. We saw 20 dolphins, 10 whale sharks and 2 breeching humpback whales. The snorkeling with the whale sharks was phenomenal. I can't imagine not doing it if you are in la Paz in season. Just magical!

Our hotel's Sea & Adventures company was booked during our stay. So they contacted Marlin Adventures and arranged our tours through them. So they already came in as highly recommended. We were picked up on time by the taxi service. Once in the office, we paid and were fitted into wet suits, fins and snorkel equipment. Our first tour was... More

We arranged a whale watching experience with Marlin Adventures. While the experience is something that we will never forget, the customer service was lackluster. Marlin Adventures called us the night before to let us know to be ready in the lobby of our hotel at 5:50am for pick up. By 6:20 we were still waiting and so we called to... More

Roberto did a nice job arranging our trip. The whale sharks were incredible. The crew of Javier and Juan were very courteous and did a nice job. Roberto also helped set me up for a fishing trip out of Bahia de los Muertos - very nice of him!

We went on a snorkel trip Tuesday December 3, 2013 with Arturo and couldn't have been happier. We drove up from Cabo which with morning traffic and a stop at a military check point took us about 2 1/2 hours. They wanted us there by 9 am we arrived around 9:05 panicked we missed them to which they reassured us... More
