We learned and had fun while snorkeling with the Mar y Aventuras team. We loved Benjamin as our guide! We didn't want it to end. We are glad that the island is a protected area.

Once you find them, which is pretty easy, they offer a variety of packages that will accommodate your adventure outing. Ours took us snorkeling and kayaking to Isla Espiritu. Ben, our guide was a very knowledgeable and fun guide. The staff was helpful..spoke english well and their equipment was quality. Our captain of the boat was very accommodating and proficient.

Our second time with this company and it was even better than the last! We hired the boat for ourselves as there's a 4 person min and we were 2. It was very reasonably priced at $300 for the day.

I have repeated the Island Hopper trip for many years. While it is the same title to the trip, it is always a variety for different experiences. The guides continue to excel, and the excursions always vary. Activities are often determined by wind, weather..... and group discussion. Any way you look at it, this is a superb trip, and I...

We had a wonderful time camping and fishing on Espiritu Santo Island. Lovey weather in May. Gorgeous sunsets. Great food. Good fishing! Our group wanted to focus on fishing instead of paddling and so that's what we did. Wonderful time.

A great experience circumnavigating this national park island. Camped on beautiful beaches after kayaking during the day. Guides Miguel and Alva were terrific. Food and relaxation in the evening while viewing the most amazing sunsets ever. Challenging sea kayaking, but very doable and worth it. Whales, dolphins, manta rays and short desert hikes. Stayed at Posada Luna Sol Hotel. Great... More

Our trip started in the comforting hotel Posada Luna Sol with a tasty breakfast and hot coffee. The pastels of the hotel and the gorgeous mural of the Sea of Cortez set your mind right knowing you'll soon be on the water.

Great trip for those that have no problem beach camping for 3 days. Miguel and Alba are excellent guides and hosts for the party we thrust on them! Optional morning and evening fishing trips were great as well. Food was always excellent and prepared very well.
