This experience was so cool. First time we found a smaller whale shark and chased it all around the Sea of Cortez - lots of swimming. Second time we went we swam with 4 or 5 huge ones who were feasting on plankton (much easier). Both times were a blast, the staff is incredible at this company. They are extremely... More

I'm a Dive Master who has traveled all over the world to dive and also has worked at dive shops. I spent 2 days in La Paz diving with Fun Baja to see the Sea Lions of Los Islotes. I found them to be professional, service oriented, safety conscious, with nice, fast boats. My Dive Guide Roberto was a Sea... More

We went on a morning excursion in Bahia La Paz with FunBaja through our UnCruise trip. I was a bit concerned to be on the bigger boat with 24 others, since we were told only 4-6 people would go in the water at one time. But we all got several chances to snorkel with a number of juvenile whale sharks.... More

I was impressed with how well we were briefed (in excellent English) by the crew on how things would go and what to do/not do. The crew did a great job managing the tour. It was a little wild because the wind was up and the seas were choppy, making it fairly challenging, but there was definitely a focus on... More

We took a fishing trip to La Paz through Tailhunter's International. We had a free day -- no fishing -- and were looking for something else special to do. Jonathan, who runs Tailhunters, recommended snorkeling with the whale sharks. A van was sent from the marina to pick us up. The marina we went to was beautiful! The guys fit... More

On the recommendation of our local dive shop, we spent three great days diving with Fun Baja. They were professional, nice, had good equipment and everyone we met there seemed to enjoy what they do. They picked us up in Cabo, drove us to La Paz, picked us up every morning at our hotel and dropped us off in the... More

Poor Equipment, Poor Customer Service: In May of 2014 I rented gear for two people from Fun Baja, myself and my dive master. We planned to dive two times each. During the second dive my mouth piece detached from the regulator--after sucking water in twice, I realized I had to use my secondary for the remainder of the dive. We... More

Snorkeling with whale sharks, courtesy of Fun Baja, was an option provided by our hosts at Un Cruise Adventures. The Fun Baja people really knew their stuff and brought us directly to where the whale sharks were feeding. The guide swam with us as many times as needed to ensure that we all got good long looks at the whale... More
