Espiritu Santo Island Day Tour
We will meet you at RED’s office early in the morning, and transport you to the marina. After boarding the boat, our guides will give you a small briefing about trip inside the Natural Protected Area as we head out into the Bay of La Paz. After roughly 1.5 hours, we arrive at the sea lion colony for our first stop. You will have plenty of time to swim, snorkel and interact with the playful sea lions in the company of your guide as well as observe tropical fish and other wildlife. Beginner snorkelers are welcome, but must be able to swim. We then climb back on board the boat in search of a pristine beach where we will take in a scrumptious meal (please advise of special needs and dietary restrictions). On the beach, guides will lead an interactive chat about the natural history of the island, plants and mangroves. Test their knowledge! Relax, swim or take in a hike before happy hour, where we will share our most memorable moments before starting the trip back to La Paz, arriving around 5 p.m.
