Recommend VDP Loreto, Danzante Tours and Wild Loreto Tours, all out of Villa Del Palmar...had a great stay other than the time share presentation from hell, although Maki was a great breakfast companion, it was the salesman that irritated.....

What a beautiful Park. It was like our own private paradise and we hiked to the other side of the island as well. You need to pack your own food and beverages but well worth it.

Great fishing . . . this trip we caught yellow tail, cabrilla, sea bass, pargo, dog snapper, marlin and dorado. The contrast from the mountains to the Sea of Cortez is breathtaking! Snorkeling is fun and fascinating! Each island has its own character and wildlife to enjoy!

Spent six days camping and kayaking in the Marine park and coast. Windex clear water, wonderful beaches. Great snorkeling and glorious skies to watch at night.

Activities planned worked out well with Danzante whale watching and snorkeling trips well organized. Disconnect between marketing group managing this property and on site concierge services. Overpaid trips which required a refund and a lot of aggravation, which could have been saved.

I have fished Loreto the last few summers and last year I took a tour to Coronado Island that included snorkeling. And this spring I was with my wife and had my fishing captain take us on a similar tour without snorkeling, the water being cooler. Both enjoyable tours. We got into a pod of about 60 dolphins for 20... More

Wonderful snorkel tour, and we loved all the dolphin. The tour guide was very knowledgable and made the tour more interesting.

We sailed to the islands in the Marine Park and encountered the vibrant marine life and spectacular natural beauty of the Sea of Cortez. Watch the winds and weather, go with someone experienced if you are not.There are many ways to explore, and many ways to experience this beauty spot. It is like nowhere else on earth!
