Espiritu Santo Island Day Tour We will pick you up at your hotel early in the morning, and transport you to the marina. After boarding the boat, our guides will give you a small briefing about the trip as we head out from the Bay of La Paz. After roughly 1.5 hours, we arrive at the sea lion colony for our first stop. You’ll have plenty of time to swim, snorkel and interact with the playful sea lions in the company of your guide. We then climb back on board to navigate around the island in search of a pristine beach where our hosts await with a scrumptious meal of fresh seafood (special needs and dietary restrictions will be taken into account). On the beach, guides will give a talk about the natural history of the island, plants and mangroves, and you’ll be able to ask all the questions you like. Relax, swim or take a nature hike before happy hour. We’ll share our most memorable moments before starting the trip back to La Paz, arriving around 5 p.m. You’re on your own for dinner.
All year round. Every Tuesday and Saturday for open groups. Ask for private departures any other day of the week.
