#2 of 18 in Nature in Baja California Sur
Snorkel with a colony of sea lions within a protected habitat at Isla Espiritu Santo.

The fun doesn't end there, as you'll be able to relish in the picture-perfect beaches, bird-watch as you move farther inland, and kayak as you spot dolphins leaping out of the ocean.

  • Learn about the island and the sea lions loved, they did not touch me whales but Tour the penalty lasts almost the whole day voucher worth

  • Personally I had some reservations of this tour, not by fate but by the contracted tour to visit the island. Fortunately, I hired a tour of professionals in the La Concha Hotel (located in La Paz). By the way: also highly recommended Hotel - voucher worth, both the captain of the trip as the people who are supporting the tour are expert members, respectful and careful guidance to travelers along the way. What one can observe in this tour is worthwhile (turtles, sea lions, stingrays and even a whale! I really enjoyed the ride. Thanks to Benjamin, Hector and all that made possible the lovely experience of visiting holy spirit

  • I have been kayaking here twice and it is a special place in Mexico. For a protected area that allows only limited access, it is as close to untouched that you will find in Mexico.
  • Amazing island. This is one place that you don't want to miss if you visit La Paz. I'll recommend start the trip at "playa El Tecolote" instead of La Paz, because if you start the trip at El tecolote, they take you all around the island and you can watch wonderful places at the other side of the island and spend more time swiming with sea lions, swimming at the Gran Ensenada beach and snorkeling reefs.
  • Incredible, definitely worth kayaking around or along part. We took five days on the island but more would be nice too. Sea lion rookery in the north is very cool!
  • Beautiful island off la paz.
  • Just beautiful and peaceful!
