DO NOT GO ON A TOUR WITH THIS COMPANY! The boat we saw yesterday morning (March 19, 2022) from Desert & Sea was extremely aggressive and harassing to Blue and especially Orca whales. The driver went very fast, close to, and actually zipped in front of the whales and other boats, which had stopped and were adhering to the legal distance limits. Each time, their actions caused the whales to sound and leave. Our driver and guide (from another company) as well as many people on our boat, were very upset by Desert & Sea's actions, but I doubt if they will report Desert & Sea to the Marine Park authorities, therefore I wanted to write a review.

We did a one day Boat Trip out of Loreto Bay with Desert and Sea Expeditions. Everything about it was fabulous and we were particularly impressed with our guide Julio! Great personality, good English and he found all the whale pods and was as enthusiastic about seeing them as we were. We were picked up and dropped off on the beach in Loreto Bay which was super convenient and the lunch was quite good – mini burritos. Could’ve asked for more!

My wife and I had three tours on different days with Desert and Sea Expeditions. Two snorkel tours and 1 land based tour to the Mission San Francisco Javier. The first snorkel tour went to Coronado Island and the other snorkel tour went to Carmen Island. On the Coronado tour we snorkeled with the sea lions...so much fun. On the 2nd tour the tropical fish along the island of Carmen were amazing. Kiki was our guide. Julio was our guide to the Mission and he was knowledgeable and fun. the price of the tours were competitive when compared to other tour companies.

Definitely use Desert and Sea or your snorkeling trips to Coronado Island! Great lunch and no rush was ever put on us. "Enjoy, relax, swim, and snorkel"! was our instructions. Our guide helped us with our equipment and was very professional.

We thought we’d only see sea lions, so when after 5 minutes we were surrounded by a troop of playful dolphins not much could go wrong anymore. Everything was very good, the boat tour, the sympathetic and knowledgeable guide (Necki), the beach, even the burritos.
