Cabo Pulmo has so much to offer on its own, but Adventures in Baja turned an amazing park into an amazing adventure.
Karen made the day feel as if we were out on the boat with an old friend who knew just what to say and just where to go in order to make the day special. Every need was taken care of before we even thought of it. Even when the forecast looked questionable, she contacted us several days in advance to make sure we had the option of rescheduling for a more favorable date.
The snorkeling at Cabo Pulmo is truly amazing and the town is quiet and charming. We had a wonderful day!
This is definitely on our to-do list for our next visit.

My boyfriend and I took a snorkel trip with Karen to experience the Mobula Ray migration. It was the highlight of our trip for sure. Karen‘s passion for the marine life in Baja is palpable and contagious. I am somewhat nervous in open water, and she made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. We were able to snorkel with a school of rays estimated to be 8000. It was breathtaking. Karen is extremely knowledgeable and she took pictures and video which she so kindly forwarded to us almost immediately after our snorkel trip. She brought snacks and drinks, and I can’t express what a wonderful experience we had. In fact, it was so wonderful that we booked another trip to Cabo in November to take another excursion with Karen to snorkel with whale sharks (a bucket list item for me) and baby sea lions. I can’t wait!!

Karen helped me arrange diving for myself (current/experienced diver), as well as my friend who is certified but had not been in the water for 20+ years. We were working with limited time to dive and we manage to have two fantastic days… My first couple dives were just Karen and I while my friend went through a refresher course that she had arranged and then we all went out diving together in the afternoon in Cabo. Day two she picked us up at the hotel and we made the trek down to Cabo Pulmo for a fantastic day of diving. She not only worked with us and our varying levels of experience in the water, but also arranged amazing boat captains and an instructor for my friend as well as gave some great pointers to him to help with his buoyancy after not being in the water for so long.

In short, I can’t recommend Karen enough… She is extremely knowledgeable about the region, proactive with following up, provides exceptional service to her guests (I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have to change out my own tank!!), and is overall just a great person to spend a couple days with. I will definitely dive with her again next time I am in Cabo!

I travelled to Mexico and Baha in January 2020, It was a 50th birthday celebration and I travelled with 2 of my closest girl friends as we were all seeking an experience of a life time as we had grown up together.

We were not to be disappointed, we were met by Karen (our host and owner of Adventures in Baha) and her passion for outdoor adventures and the environment was easy to see. She looked after us for the entire trip and was a fantastic host, and she is fluent in both English and Spanish.

On our first day we headed out to sea to find the whale sharks, to my surprise in no time at all we found them, lots of them.... maybe 30 in total. Before I knew it, I was in the water swimming with them. It was both terrifying and magnificent, the experience of being alongside these amazing animals in the wild was truly unbelievable and Karen was a great instructor. She was very clear with her instructions and calm with her approach to all those that got in the water. I always felt very safe.

Over the following days we headed out and were never disappointed, we saw Grey Whales, more Whale sharks, Sealions, giant schools of fish and pods of dolphins. Karen was very knowledgeable about both the wildlife and the country and area that we were in.

Following each day we would return to our accommodation then we would head out for an evening meal. Karen joined us and introduced us to some of the best local food and dishes, and the Mexican wine isn't to be sniffed at, we had a blast.

We also took the opportunity to do some hiking and had lunches out whilst we were out and about, I noted that Karen always took time to ensure that no one was left out.

I would strongly recommend both Karen and 'Adventures in Baha' she always made that extra effort and clearly takes pride in what she does, and obviously loves doing it too. We will all definitely come back....

We have the most fabulous time and experience, one that we wont forget.

Dear Elaine, Thanks so much for your wonderful review of your special celebration week in Baja California with us. It was such a pleasure to be your host and guide for this beautiful week and introduce you to our amazing marine and desert life. We were gifted by nature for sure with so many feeding whale sharks all around us, grey whales coming to our boat to check us out, humpback whales and fishes everywhere. Thanks for your passion to explore this superb part of the world and we look forward to meeting and taking you adventuring again soon. Kindest regards, Karen.

Our experience with Adventures in Baja was phenomenal. Karen was a dream to work with- from scheduling until the end of our trip. We booked a private whale shark and sea lion snorkeling trip and loved her company so much that we added on a whale tour! It was a life changing experience- whale sharks are magical creatures. She was kind, informative, patient with our kids and worked hard to meet them at their level. We felt that we had stumbled on a gold mine of experience. Her commitment to the environment was astounding and reflected in her relationships with local support staff (boat captains were both rock stars!) My kids have declared that they would both like to be marine biologists and help advance Karen's work after spending the day with her. My 6 year old also asks frequently when our next adventure is with Karen and my answer is wholeheartedly- as soon as possible!

We had a terrific day with Karen and crew! We were a party of 9, 5 of which we children ages 6-12. We had an amazing time watching a male humpback jump and swim so close to us we could hear him breath. She brought drinks and snacks which was so helpful with the kids. She was so patient and accommodating with all the children when snorkeling as this was all their first items. She is very knowledgeable and respectful of the animals and the land. We had a great time with Karen and could not be more please!

Karen at Adventures in Baja came highly rated. From the beginning we had a comfort level with her deep knowledge, diverse travels, and stories that are unreal. She absolutely knows her stuff and knows how to take care of her customers just as much as she cares for the animals if not more. I’m sure our trip was the most eco friendly with insights and considerations for the well being of the whales.

For us this was two excursions. The first was whale watching on a boat out of Cabo San Lucas with the second whale shark snorkeling out of La Paz. We worked out the prices and put down our deposit to secure our boats just a couple days prior. We knew it was going to be epic and it was... no disappointment at all. The pictures speak for themselves. That being said, none of us captured the baby whale full breach, but we all saw it... and it took our breath away.

Getting in the water with the bus sized whale sharks may have been intimidating for some, but within minutes that all melted away as we realized they were happy to have us swim right along these majestic giants. I treasure this experience we had seeing about a half dozen whale sharks and swimming with them for about 10 minutes at a time if we could keep up. We each got amazing close up photos and videos with go pros, but Karen’s fantastic under water photos and videos were tops! Can’t wait to go again. I have no hesitation recommending this company. It’s the whole package.

I am so glad we chose Karen for our Whale Shark Snorkel. She had everything planned to perfection! She picked us up at the hotel at 6:30am sharp and drove us to La Paz from Cabo. From there, we got wetsuits and then headed to the boat. The captain, Sergio, is a real pro. Between their laser vision, we found a whale shark that we had pretty much to ourselves! What an amazing experience! 3 in our party were relatively new to snorkeling and Karen eased their concerns and even pulled them along the whale shark so they could snorkel beside it easily! Everyone had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend Karen for any adventure travel! She is very personable, knowledgeable, and eco conscious. It's hard to imagine having a better time!

Had an amazing whale shark trip with Karen! Karen was very helpful in setting everything up, from helping us pick the date with the most ideal weather to making sure we have the best reservation into the whale shark area, she's a great guide with years of experience making sure our trip was a success. After our boat got to our designated zone, we spotted a whale shark soon after. We spent the entire time with two whale sharks, getting dropped into the water a bit ahead, swam alongside the sharks for as long as we can, getting picked up by our boat, and rinse and repeat all over again. At the end of the tour, we stumbled into a pod of dolphins that were probably just as excited to see us as we were to see them. They circled around us for a bit while we're in the water and capped off a great tour. Thanks Karen!

Dear Alvin, What a day for you and Rose, finally her dreams came true with the whale sharks, she was so excited and what a magical end to your snorkeling trip when the big pod of playful bottlenose dolphins stayed with us. We hope you return to meet the sealions and other for other great adventures on your next trip. kindest regards, Karen

Such a great day diving. This was not the first or even second site we booked Karen from Adventures in Baja worked super hard to ensure we got the best dives possible. The first sites had less visibility and instead of saying oh well that's what you booked like other companies might have Karen called and explained everything and offered us other locations. This is the third country I have dove in and I cannot express how good Karen's customer service was or how knowledgeable she was about the dive site history and local creatures. Would 100% recommend Adventures in Baja to any diver worth their salt.
