My daughter and I spent 4 days whale watching moms and babies on Magdalena bay. We beach camped in tents overlooking the bay, listening to the whales at night, ate 5 star food (really!), and had great guides (Miguel and Fernando). The camps were very clean and well maintained.

This was an incredible experience! My group of 10 friends spent several days in La Paz, exploring the beaches and restaurants. Then we went to Isla Espiritu for the next 5 days. Mar Y's camp was well maintained, clean, and had the perfect view of the beautiful sunsets. The guides, Marco and Hugo, were enthusiastic and knowledgeable and seemed to... More

Marco and Hugo, our guides on Espiritu Santo Isle were excellent in every sense of the word! They make the trip enjoyable and went out of their way to inform and entertain us. While we went to paddle, the weather didn't cooperate, so they found alternate activities to keep us happy. Their knowledge and experience were amazing! Martin kept us... More

It appears that this trip in combining snorkeling with whale sharks and sea lions, observing gray whales, kayaking on Espiritu Santo Island AND releasing sea turtle hatchlings is a winner.

This company seems top-notch from top to bottom. Their hotel in La Paz is cozy, clean and friendly, with a nice breakfast and swimming pool, plus cool places to hang out.
