Trip overview

Meet early in the morning for a trip out into the Bay of La Paz on an outboard skiff with full shade. Along the way your naturalist guide will brief you on the natural history of Espíritu Santo Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to turquoise waters, a sea lion colony, numerous fish species and marine birds. Navigate the waters around the island, and after roughly 1.5 hours, we will arrive at the sea lion colony. You’ll have plenty of time to swim, snorkel and interact with the playful sea lions* accompanied by your guide. Afterwards, our world-class nature guide will seek out a secluded beach for a tasty lunch (dietary restrictions taken into account). You’ll have time to relax, swim, explore the island and learn about the natural and cultural history of this unique place before heading back to La Paz in time for dinner.


*During the sea lion mating period, from June 1st through August 31st, sea lion observation takes place from onboard our boats. After observing the sea lions from the boat, we will travel to a snorkeling site away from the rookery to snorkel with tropical fish.

  • On itinerary: We will make all efforts to adhere to the itinerary described above, but we may modify the itinerary due to wind, weather, and other factors. The safety and enjoyment of our travelers are our top priorities. Please see our terms and conditions for more information. We do not guarantee wildlife sightings, interaction or behavior. All travelers must comply with communicated protocols and regulations regarding activities within natural protected areas and interactions with wildlife.

  • On Trip Insurance: All of our experiences are covered by  an Emergency Medical Expenses insurance. In order to obtain coverage, each guest MUST SIGN A LIABILITY WAIVER BEFORE DEPARTURE.

  • Climate and weather: La Paz is situated on the Gulf of California on the southern part of the Baja California peninsula. It is separated from the Pacific by a desert environment with low mountains in between. We get large temperature swings, typically in the late fall and spring, up to 104 degrees fahrenheit (40 degrees celsius). This can be true even during winter. Outside of summer, we recommend packing for HOT and COLD weather. Most importantly, be prepared for a sun that’s stronger than you may be used to due to our latitude. Remember, a sunburn takes just a couple hours to develop, but it can ruin the rest of your trip. Stay shaded and stay hydrated. 

  • Luggage: For day trips, you’ll want to bring a small bag or backpack for your water bottle and personal items. Our boats have a dry storage space.
