There were 4 of us so we did a private charter. We fished, had lunch at a small cove, saw the sea lions and thoroughly enjoyed our day with Raul.

Fabulous camp site, kayaking and nature with mar y aventuras! Loved it. Isla Espiritu Santo was magical and just one part of the tour. The setting, kayaking and snorkeling was wonderful and staff was excellent as well.

Please take care of the nature, it is beautiful but every time I come back I see more trash on the island. I hope all can save this nature beauty.

Spent three nights on the island. Snorkeling, fishing, kayaking and hiking. A lovely trip. Our guides were very knowledgeable about the history, land, plants and animals. Great experience. Highly recommend if you can. Snorkeling with the whale sharks and sea lions.
