“swim with sea puppies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

It is a memory you will never forget. Take a camera and a friend I thought it was a bit expensive being a resident, but totally worth it its a lifetime experience.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Our family travelled with 2 little kids (1.5 and 3.5 years). We went on the Espiritu Santos island boat trip and the Whale Watching (touching) tour. We loved both so much that we went twice on both of them.

Our Espiritu & Baja Tours guides were so nice and friendly. We met almost everyone in the company and all of them were really great.
And our trips were a blast!

On both of the Whale Watching tours we were so close to the whales that we could touch them, our kids too! It was safe for them and a great experience. It was unbelievable to touch 20-30 tones mother whales and the baby whales too.
On our Island trip we saw about a hundred dolphins, swam with sea lions, beautiful fishes, saw a humpback whale, jumping manta ray, crabs, clams, pelicans, frigates, ....

These experiences are among the bests we ever had. (We travel a lot.)

Espiritu & Baja Tours was not just great, but the cheapest in town as well. Our hotel's staff recommended them too.

Check with Richard or Gloria at Hacienda Parisio for the name of who they recommended. Wonderful day, dolphins galore!

“Wonderful people. Highly Highly recommend people who love nature to take tours with this agency.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We were there in Feb, 2012 and they really took good care of us. I had communicated with them via email for about eight months before our tour and they answered all my questions. We had two adults and one six year old girl. We went on the grey whale tour, then swim with whale shark, then swim with the sea lions, then a fishing trip. They were the reason we booked to stay in La Paz, down the street from the tour office. The carnival was during the week we were there too. You will have the adventure of your life time.
Definitely make sure your hotel knows you are using them so that you are hooked up with the agency right away as you first check in the hotel because the tour agency needs to confirm you are there. I would schedule the fishing trip in the beginning of the trip rather than later so you can actually finish eating the entire fish!

“Exceptional day on and in the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We did the day tour to Espiritu Santo Island with this tour company. (they were recommended by a few sources as the best tour outfit around) What a phenomenal day! We saw fin whales and dolphins on the way out, circumnavigated the island, snorkelled on a beautiful reef with sea lion pups (wow!), had lunch and a chance to lounge on a deserted beach on the island, and then saw humpback whales frolicking in the ocean on the way back! (we had to choose between snorkelling more or going to see the humpbacks - but it was totally our decision - we simply didn't have time to do it all in one day!) These guys have good eyes and radios to communicate with the other boats out there to let everyone know what is going on in terms of sea life.
