“Kayaking Espiritu Santo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is a fantastic trip with great guides.
It is a camping trip and a bit of and adventure holiday but well worth any slight lack of luxury that there may be.
Our guides were knowledgeable and conscious of our safety at all times. The support staff were fantastic and the meals they managed with one stove were out of this world. They far exceeded my expectations and were as good as those at the resort we went to after this trip.
It was a week of new sights for us - dolphins, sea turtles, sea lions, manta rays, blue footed boobies to name just a few.To wake up with a heron six feet away from your tent makes it all worthwhile.
At night the stars were as glorious as the landscape during the day.
Throughout it all the guides were flexible and accommodated the wishes of the group.
The only thing you don't want to do is to go to the closing dinner. The food at the restaurant we went to is sub standard.

“Memorable Day Trip - Snorkeling & Kayaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

We booked a kayaking daytrip with was actually more of a snorkeling trip with the option to kayak for a little bit, but it was well worth it! We were able to snorkel with whale sharks, sea lions, and see some coral reef areas. We stopped at a quiet cove with turqoise clear waters for lunch and time to swim/kayak. On our way back we saw some turtles, whales, and manta rays. The tour lasted from 8:30 - 6 PM. Our guide and boat driver were great as well (Christian & Francisco). And Beatriz was very helpful when making the reservation. I would highly recommend the tour.

“wonderful family multi-sport adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

We just returned from a week long multisport adventure with the BOA
What a pleasure this trip was. BOA contracted the bicycling portion with Katun and our guide Rafael was an amazing multi talented guy/friend. We truly enjoyed the week of Kayaking, Snorkeling, camping, hiking, and enjoying the wonderful food and sunsets. We are a family of 10 ranging in age from 2 to 65. I would highly
recommend BOA for a memorable family adventure.

“Brilliant but crowded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The BOA guides and logistical arrangements were excellent. The only thing is, and it's not their fault, is that the Espiritu Santo trip has gotten too popular. We had to camp with other parties on the beaches every night. Motorboats constantly buzzed through the channel, dropping off new people, servicing the parties all over the island and taking excursions to Los Islotes. A mini-cruise ship landed a hiking party. Sailboats and giant yachts were anchored in the coves. In other words, there was no sense of solitude. I did the same trip 25 years ago, and we were the only party on the island save for the pescadoros. I'm happy that this activity (industry, really) has created jobs for the guides, but If you are looking to get away from humanity, this is not the place.

“These Guys Are The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Have been meaning to write a brief review since going on a Baja Outdoor Activities trip over last Thanksgiving. We had a group of 12 friends for a 4 day/3 night sea kayak trip. This was my 3rd trip with Baja Outdoor Activities, and they simply know how to do it right. The guides, food, equipment, planning. etc. Even though we had some strong winds the first day or so, there was plenty of other things to do. They take care of all aspects of the trip and the entire group had a wonderful time. Snorkeling with the sea lions on the last day was nice ending. I'll be back.
