About Loreto Coastal Expeditions Glass Bottom Boat
Take the best tour in Loreto aboard the WANTOSEA glass-bottom boat, comfortably cruising the waters around Isla Danzante in the Loreto Bay National Marine Park. Boasting 42 sq ft of underwater viewing area and a swim ladder that almost anyone can climb, the WANTOSEA glass bottom boat provides you a relaxing and unique way to see a variety of marine life – from the comfort of your seat. It’s common to see many kinds of local fish, dolphins, whales, manta rays, sea turtles, ospreys, blue-footed boobies, and more. For those that want to swim, each trip includes at least one snorkeling / beach stop. The tour includes fresh and healthy snacks, lunch, drinks, use of snorkel equipment, and a knowledgeable and friendly crew. The Wantosea does NOT have restroom facilities. The beaches we stop at do NOT have restroom facilities. There are plenty of places to relieve yourself if you have an adventurous spirit. :) We have daily tours, however reservations are required. Each trip is unique!

We spent a wonderful day on Wantosea in Loreto and we cant say enough great things about the experience! My three small daughters loved watching all the sea life through the glass and then jumping off the boat into the beautiful turquoise water. Boat staff was knowledgeable and VERY accommodating. Snacks, drinks and lunch were delicious! I have family who live in Loreto and we will definitely do this experience every time we visit.

I wasn't actually able to take the glass bottom boat tour due to it being closed down as a result of Covid when I was visiting Loreto, but I wanted to comment and give a great review to the owners simply because of their willingness to provide me with added information and Tim went out of his way to respond to my questions and provide me advice about the area even though he couldn't take me out on his tour. The next time I come to Loreto Tim Yarbrough's glass bottom boat and/or fishing trips will certainly be on my list of activities. Thanks Tim for your helpful and friendly text exchanges last week proving me with answers to my questions about your services and other Loreto-area questions I had. I really appreciate your willingness to help!

Five family members enjoyed this glass bottom boat tour. Mike, our tour guide, and Tim, the builder and owner of the boat, we great hosts and made this trip memorable. The highlight of the trip was the encounter with dolphins. We were able to observe the dolphin feeding and then later they came to the boat and almost appeared to be playing with us. A great memory!

Thank you! We love having families on board, it often makes for the memory of a lifetime. Several regular guests we know bring their friends and family every year, they tell us it is the best way they know for new visitors to really get to see the variety of life that exists here in the Sea of Cortez. Look forward to seeing you and your family again!

Friendly crew. Excellent English spoken. Big, safe, clean boat. Just show up with a hat and sunscreen and everything else is taken care of! Delicious food. We saw tons of fish, sea stars, shells. We even got to snorkel off of a terrific beach. If you only do one excursion in Loreto, this should be it. The scenery was breath taking. It was a tough decision every minute whether to look at the fish under the water or the stunning scenery that we were floating by.

This trip was incredible. The captain guided this wonderful glass bottom boat within inches of coral and rock and never scraped bottom. The snack food was home made and all very good. A must do in Loreto.
