  • Booked with Delfine tours through Mario. Tried to scam us of our deposit. We gave him 400pesos and thought we would get it back. When we were ready to board the boat he kept saying we would get it...

  • WOW...this whole area is just awesome..!! We had an opportunity to snorkel in the area, but we were restricted from climbing on the rock formations. There were coral in the area that were restricted and protected from placing a foot on it or near any of it. Even with all of the various restrictions, we still enjoyed as much of the snorkeling and exploring around the rock formations and coral in the area. We saw many varieties of fish and birds and several other unidentified life that was really great to see and explore. Kinda made us feel like we were the first to see it all! LoL Isla Espiritu Santo is a nature preserve area for snorkeling, swimming, and hanging out on the beach. We saw a variety of the local sea life including manta rays, schools of fish jumping out of the water, various kinds of tropical fish, the sea lion pups and adults. The area is best explored with a knowledgeable local or a knowledgeable tour guide who can answer any questions about the area or the licenses needed while in the area visiting. There were a many people in the area visiting with their own boats and docked in the area open water and adjacent to the land to get to the shores to enjoy the beaches or have a nice picnic under the their shade tent under the sun. The area was just awesome.
  • A must tour to do. Sea of Cortez is amazing.
  • Beautiful trip to visit sea lions and enjoy the beautiful beaches
  • Amazing place where you can actually appreciate a lot of things like the mountain layers, sea lions, whales, dolphins and many other sea Flora and fauna. Really incredible.
  • It’s not an easy island to get to, it’s far out but so worth the time! We swam with sea lions! We witnessed sting rays flying midair right out of the water en mass! Would definitely recommend!🏝⛱⛺️🏕🚤I was floating on my back when a baby sea lion hugged my leg and wouldn’t let go! Best snorkeling experience I’ve ever had!
