We did 2 trips with Baja Ex on our recent trip to La Paz ! One day snorkelling to Los Islotes and 1 day just snorkelling by Isla Espiritu Santo. We had Willy as our captain and Eric as our guide . They were both top notch experienced, knowledgeable, and fun operators . Highly recommend them both . Only thing dis -appointing this trip was the delay of the permits being given out for trips to see the whale sharks . That’s what we really wanted and were looking for . The water was still warm and seas not too rough .

As I reflect on my snorkeling excursion with Baja Expeditions the first thing that comes to mind is — I am so glad I did it with this company! It was such an amazing experience I couldn’t stop telling other travelers about it for the remainder of my trip. I was doing this activity solo as my travel companion was planning to dive. The ladies in the office worked very hard to put a day together where I could snorkel and my friend could dive AND on the same boat AND with the sea lions (omfg!!!!!). Our experience was top notch. From what I hear most dive/snorkel experiences are good but this stood out as spectacular. Alex our snorkeling guide was great, knowledgeable and so helpful. Josie my friends master dive guide was super nice and so helpful to my friend. But let’s not forget the captain! This amazing team set up a lunch on a beautiful beach in between Tecalote and Balandra! Apparently no one else does this. They set up a table with tapestry covering, dishes, silverware, a giant salad, burritos, sweet snacks and a giant tub of the greatest fresh ceviche! I ate 2 full servings it was so good! 10 stars out of 5 haha — thumbs up!

Would definitely recommend Baja Ex for a diving adventure in the La Paz area!

I did my open water certification plus two additional days and my partner who is a more experienced diver joined for four of those days in October 2022. Our instructors/guides Maria and Simon were excellent teachers and had great knowledge of the local dive sites. We visited multiple areas over the 5 days including Los Islotes (Sea Lion Colony), the Salvatierra and Fang Ming wrecks and the Swanee Reef all of which were vibrant and teeming with sea life.

The team at Baja Ex were lovely to deal with, food on the boat was delicious and they were very accommodating of dietary requirements (my partner is Vegan). Each day finished up with lunch and beers on a pristine secluded beach (which could easily be an excellent day activity on its own)

Amazing private boat tour to Isla Espiritu Santo with snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding stops with our guide Eric (who happens to be a marine biologist) and captain Willy. It was a real pleasure to learn from Eric, he is the best at explaining all the marine phenomenons of the region. Isla Espiritu santo is a hidden gem, never heard of it and it goes straight to my podium of best beaches in the world. The color of the water is really amazing, only comparable to Maldives. We will certainly come back during whale season because I'm sure it's beyond amazing, and I plan to contact Baja Expeditions again. They were the 1st company to launch these activities in the region and have a lot of experience. Their staff is THE BEST!

This is the day we all look forward to each time we’re in Baja… a day on the Sea of Cortez with an experienced captain and marine biologist, teaching us about the environment, wildlife, and marine life. Our team, Willy and Eric, gave us an amazing day of learning and FUN! The lunch on the beach was icing on the cake! Highly recommend this adventure company for your next visit. Great for all ages and levels! 😊

We would give Baja Expeditions and our guide, Eric, 10 stars if I could. We had everything we needed, including a fabulous lunch on a secluded beach complete with shade, chairs, festive beverages, and delicious food (meeting everyone's dietary needs!). Eric was very knowledgeable about the islands and their occupants - he is an excellent naturalist and guide. I never expected to snorkel with rays, dolphins, and sea lions in a single day! Cuco was excellent at navigating the boat and getting us everywhere we wanted to go. To top it off, Eric made excellent suggestions of places to dine and things to do in La Paz and Todos Santos. He helped us make some amazing memories outside of our trip to Isla Espiritu Santo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Our guide Eric, and captain Cuco took us on an amazing tour of the Islands. We saw plenty of Sea Lions, from cute babies being fed by their mom, to large Alpha males defending their turf. We also saw a lot of Sea turtles, rays, and many varieties of birds. It was all capped off with a beautiful, and delicious beachside lunch. Eric himself was very knowledgeable, and passionate about the wildlife, and geography of the National Park. Cuco was also very skilled in navigating the boat through the coral, and near the wildlife.

We had an amazing, otherworldly experience with our guide Eric and captain Cuco spending a day at Espiritu Santo national park. They both love the park and all of its wildlife, and shared their love with us. It felt like they weren't just there to do their jobs and get paid, but they really wanted us to see as much as we could and begin to appreciate the park as much as they do. Their service and guiding were of the absolute highest quality. I very strongly recommend BajaEx, and espeically Eric and Cuco.

We saw dolphins, rays, sea lions, turtles, and many other incredible animals.

Many thanks to Eric and Captain Tito for an absolutely incredible day. It was a privilege to visit such a beautiful park and UNESCO site with Baja Expeditions.

We saw an amazing amount of wildlife (including swimming with mobula rays and sea lions) and learned a lot about the marine biology and geology of the region. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

It's worth booking with Baja Expeditions due to the awesome communication from the team, friendly and knowledgeable guides, and top-notch gear. The delicious ceviche lunch also helped to make our experience unforgettable.

Baby whale watching camp was fantastic! We had interactions on every excursion. The tents were very comfortable. We even had a king-sized bed and a toilet and shower. The food was wholesome, tasty, and plentiful. There was nothing at all I would have changed. A word of advice, do bring some warm clothes and something wind-proof. We would recommend this trip for anyone who loves nature, animals, and adventure!
