I started writing Mr Ramirez (the Hotel Manager) about staying at Club Cantamar several times before arriving in La Paz. I wanted to know about dive trips to Espirito Island and w/the Whale Sharks. He assured me that tours went every day from his Club and I would enjoy my dives with the finest dive masters in all of La...

This review only refers to boat trips I did with Cantamar. Overall, I was very pleased with their service. All the crew, starting from the office guy (marine biologist) to skipper (Armando) and guides (Jorge and Javier) were attentive, informative and helpful. We got a briefing before we entered the water as to how to behave in order to stay...

Beautiful location, nice beach on property. Small pool. Place to be for whale and sea lion tours as boats leave from there. Nice rooms but outside damaged by last hurricane. Chef and food outstanding. Prices and drinks inexpensive. Times for anything are loose. Have to admit we were only persons there so sometimes had to hunt for people but when...

My husband and I visited here 10 years ago and finally got back, bringing our teenage son and 8 other divers with us. We definitely won't wait another 10 years before we return. Our group loved the resort, staff and diving so much they are already asking for us to return. As a trip leader I can't say enough about...

This is a review of the whale shark trip we had the misfortune of booking through the Club Cantamar office on the Malecon in La Paz. If you have any interest in wildlife conservation, DO NOT book a tour with this irresponsible company. Why? 1. Due to skipper carelessness, our boat HIT A WHALE SHARK when returning to shore, knocking...

Hello Hayles, We have read your opinion, and want to clarify the following: 1) During an internal investigation, who included, but it is not limited to the following facts, we found out that there WAS NOT presence of any organic matter or damage to the plastic spoiler, the propeller nor the rudder of the ship "Baja Uno" that operated your...

We found this to be a great resort/hotel, once i settled after the initial surprise of its location. It turned out to be well organized, and great morning and evening views. We dove 2 days here, headed up by Freddie, with great crews, day 1 with our guide Ellaina( hope i spelled that correct) and second day with Thierry, both...

On my first dive trip to the Sea of Cortez I randomly chose Club Cantamar (every dive outfit in La Paz has as many good reviews as bad so I flipped a mental coin). I absolutely loved my dive master, Aaron. It was low season so the divers weren't abundant. The company arranged for me to join a snorkeling group...
