Had a wonderful experience learning how to scuba dive with Frank from Dazante Tours. Beautiful conditions, beaches, and clean waters.

Take a tour - go snorkeling - spend a beautiful day! Check if your tour includes plenty of water/drinks and or lunch. Ours did and we noticed other folks were not so lucky.

We circumnavigated Coronados, Carmen, Danzante and Monserrat. The geology is awesome! The water is warm! One is paddling in the desert, with cardon cactus on the shore....and the desert, this Fall, is green after the hurricane rains. There were whales, dolphins, sea lions, leaping rays and colourful fish observed while snorkelling.

I see that Danzante has gotten some rave reviews here but my experience was very different. I had reserved a half day fishing trip that, due to illness, had to be postponed. I did sign up for the sales pitch at the development they represent which gave me a $50 discount. Property is beautiful, sales pitch fine including the free... More

The number one reason I booked a cruise out of San Francisco and into the Sea of Cortez was to snorkel at this marine park and the waters around La Paz. The experience was perfect. Our guide took us on a little detour to the nesting area of the blue-footed booby and to get up close and personal with a... More

Clear water, thousands of fish, and dolphins made our snorkeling trip a memorable experience. In addition we kayaked and paddle boarded the beautiful waters. Enjoy- this area is great for relaxation.
