I booked a one day Sea Kayaking adventure for 8 people in the Sea of Cortez while we were staying just outside of Todos Santos. La Paz is an easy hour drive from Todos - although we ran into a bit of rush hour morning traffic coming into La Paz. We left TS at 7:15 and arrived at Mar y... More

Swimming with whale sharks is an opportunity of a lifetime, and this is the company to do it with!! From reservation process to check in, the guide (Angel) and capitan (Alejandro), everyone was fantastic. Capitan made a great effort to get us in with dolphins as well which was incredible! Absolutely recommended, don't even bother looking elsewhere!

We did a group day tour sea kayaking & snorkeling on Espiritu Santo and Ballena Islands and it was the highlight of our 5 day break in La Paz. Benjamin was our guide and he was professional, fun, and safe. I highly recommend this excursion to anyone interested. The islands were much more beautiful than we realized. My only disappointment...

La isla Espiritu Santo is enchanting in the winter, and staying there for 5 days over Christmas with Sea & Adventures was a real gift. We were able to alternate kayaking, snorkeling, swimming and some island discovery with Miguel and Fernando our guides. The entire team: guides, cooks and boat drivers were extremely attentive to everyone's well being and comfort.

At 73 and 69, we were the oldest members of our group. This was our first time camping on the beach, sea-kayaking, paddle boarding. Wonderful, challenging, exhilarating!

For a 5-day, 4-night kayaking trip, the guides only took us on two kayaking outings for a total of 3 hours of paddling. Instead, we did a lot more snorkeling and some hiking. I would've liked to have done more paddling.

Dear Guest, We apologize for not getting you out paddling more on our Espiritu Santo Quick Getaway trip in December. Our guides are happy to accommodate folks with more of any activity if asked to do so unless the weather creates unsafe conditions for any given activity. Unfortunately there were lots of high winds on this trip which curtailed kayaking... More

Some advice for anyone (older than 50) who wishes to swim with whale sharks and who doesn't really have the physics, stamina or swimming skills: enjoy the sight from the boat instead. Besides from getting the cramps and losing my breath I never really managed to swim fast enough to see more than the tail of the fish. Interesting in... More

Dear Guest, Thanks so much for sharing your advice!
