The boat rip was fun. We used Dolphin Dive Shop and they took care of everyone's needs. The trip was tailored to the desires of the group.

This park is the pride of Loreto for good reasons. Mexico deserves recognition for having set it aside for protection. It is beautiful and has abundant wildlife.

Scenery just out of this world. Saw a few blue whales from afar but the boat outing was definitely a great experience.

Well worth a day trip to Coronado for a swim/hike/boat ride around the island. Easy to catch at the marina. Amazing water for swimming/snorkeling.

No commercial fishing here, only the locals from a nearby town who go fishing in Pangas. No parasailing or jet skis.

We went with Francisco on a Blue Whale tour. We saw a pod of at least 12 Blue Whales surfacing for over an hour. Totally awesome trip, more than we had expected. This whale watching excursion made our entire week!

If you want to see marine life, take a boat trip out of Loreto to see it all. The Dolphins were so numerous around the boat it felt like you could walk across them. Hump back whales, sea lions, several types of sea birds, rugged island formations and beautiful white sand beaches are all there.

Went with Sea and Land Tours out of Loreto. If you want to actually hike into the volcano, then ask them for that fare.

Lots of marine life to view. The whales were present for the winter and the protected waters create an oasis for many species.
