Went out fishing twice and also took a tour of the islands. Great rugged scenery. Nice to see porpoises and sea lions. The fishing was real good. Seas were quite choppy.

Fishing is what brought me and my father to this beautiful part of the world and we were not the least bit unimpressed.

Had a really nice day tour with Placido- very scenic with good bird sightings, habituated sea lions, and great snorkeling without a wetsuit despite being January. Chilly, but not too bad... Placido prides himself with a spotless boat in good condition, and charged just $100 for the 5-6 hour day. Need to bring everything for a days outing yourself- food... More

excellent fishing in the Sea of Cortez! Plus dolphin's followed us out and swam along side. A fin whale came by and surfaced near the boat, and we toured around some of the Islands.

We took the day trip to the Coronado Islands. Marine life is abundant and you can see seals and sealions and all kinds of local birds. The water was not particularly warm (whales come here after all) but if you're snorkeling, you see a lot of very colorful fish. White sand in the Island, and a perfect day at sea.

Coronado Island is bigger than it looks, with lots of scenic volcanic rock formations and a sandy picnic beach. The snorkeling is good, though sometimes the plankton can obscure visibility. But, the whales like it so... The highlight form me was being able to get close to the sea lion colony in the water and see them dive and swim... More

We love Loreto bay national marine park. The sea life changes every month . We have seen blue whales, humpbacks, Menke whales , fin backs, hundreds of dolphin, rays and the list could go on! Once out on our kayak a whale shark swam beneath us. If you love nature this is an amazing place! I think February is my... More

We dove and there's not much coral, just a rocky coast. If you want great diving do Cozumel. Blah blah
