Saw lots of birds, sea lions, an Oliver Ridlley turtle and a couple of puffer fish. But the best part was a shore lunch on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world.

We went on a snorkelling tour with Buceo Carey. Swam with sea lion pups, saw cormorants diving after the myriads of small fish (sardines?), lots of colorful tropical fish. Sea lion pups are so curious about you that they will come right up to you, even going as far as nibbling on your arms or legs to check you out. We were lucky enough to have a marine biologist (Rodrigo Rocha) along, and his knowledge of sea life, geology, and flora really added to the trip.

Everyone loves this place obviously and me too. My little bit of advise though is to dry off completely before getting back into the motorboat if it is at all cool or windy. I was so cold at the end of the trip I suffered minor hypothermia.

if you can manage a full day excursion and enjoy nature, you must plan to go to Isla Espiritu Santo. Baja Fun picked us up from our hotel at 8 am (yes, on time) and delivered us to the marina. From there we were outfitted with wetsuits (not everyone needs these!) and snorkel gear. We swam with whale sharks, frolicked with a large family of sea lions, and then chillaxed on Enseneda beach -- really AWAY from it all. The captain and guide were friendly and helpful, a total high quality experience to appreciate all that the Sea of Cortez is known for.

Took a boat tour of the islands with a small group and had a lovely day. Snorkeled at sea lion colony, hung out near a pod of dolphins, saw a wild frigate bird colony, pic-niced, etc. Surprisingly beautiful coral land tropical fish at the sea lion spot, as nice as I have ever seen.
