Marlin Adventures really went out of their way to accommodate us! With very little notice they put together a wonderful snorkeling tour for us. Our tour guide Jahaziel and our Captain Sergio really went the extra mile to help us see dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays, and many different birds on the way to snorkel with the sea lions.

To an extent, any marine life tour needs luck. We had that last Sunday. Boy did we have good luck! Escorted out by dolphins till we saw twin flukes in the near distance, and then Luck gives way to skill. Sergio is an expert captain. This guy moves his boat like a dancer. The boat is solid and well maintained... More

This was my third snorkel trip with Marlin Adventures! Every trip is unique and full of exciting experiences! Sergio Romero, our captain, located whale sharks on each of my snorkeling adventures. Jahaziel Arriola, our guide, taught us so many interesting things about the beautiful islands of Espiritu Santo. It was so much fun to swim with the sea lion pups!... More

Awesome experience. Very good boat with 225 hp motor and life vests, was the best boat I saw doing tours that day. Very good suits, snorkel gear and fins. The operators kept us away from other groups and we had multiple sharks to ourselves. The guys spoke good english and told us they have counted 26 whale sharks in the... More

We went for a day trip with Martin as a captain and Jaziel as tour guide. We really enjoyed the special attention they had for us when we saw a group of dolphins and made a stop to stay around them for a while. We really enjoyed the snorkeling too even if the lobos marinos were a bit lazy that... More

Went out to snorkel with whale sharks. Did some shopping and was a good deal compared to others. Showed up at their shop, walked a couple hundred feet to the boat and away we go. 10 minute boat ride and we are already seeing hump back whales. 10 minutes later we are in the water with two 20+ foot whale...

We had a great time and saw a lot of whale sharks. We were stayed in Cabo, rented a car and drove to La Paz, no problem. Snorkel equipment provided was avg at best. Also we booked via the web. Some folks on our boat booked in town and paid $20 less than us. All in all it was great.
