We live here and keep going back to the island with Alan. It is a mystical place. So well preserved and cared for by these professional guides. It changes with the seasons from great to better. Always something new to see and learn.

This trip was definitely the highlight of our La Paz trip. We not only saw the sea lions but also 3 humpback whales and several large dolphin pods. There is nothing like seeing these creatures in their natural habitat!! Alan was absolutely amazing. He knew a lot about the mammals but also the birds and plant life we saw along... More

I can't recommend this tour company highly enough. Our tour guide, Alan, was completely bilingual, educated as a marine biologist and shared so much about the culture, history, geology and biology of the area. We saw all of the marine life mentioned in other posts PLUS a pod of three orcas playing with a sunfish. We stayed out at least... More

My husband and I went on a whale shark swimming experience with "Espiritu & Baja Tours" to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. Our tour guide Jorge did an excellent job! The company provided us with snorkeling gear and wet suits, as well as waters and snacks for the trip. The captain Alejandro did an excellent job and was able to... More

Nice large vans with air conditioning. Takes about 3 hrs for the full trip. Cost about $50 USD round trip. Book online before arrival. I was early and they fit me in on an earlier van. If you can afford it, fly into LAP. Way more convenient.

Thank you Espiritu Tours for giving my family and I the most treasured experience imaginable. Thanks to Guide Antonio and captain Saul, we swam with whale sharks and sea lions, snorkelled over pristine reefs, explored mangroves and saw Pelicans, frigate birds, blue boobies and on top of that floated alongside a huge pod of dolphins. The picnic lunch on a... More

It was wonderful. The owner of the B&B I worked at booked me here and I am so glad. I went on both the Whale Shark Tour and Island Tour. Both were amazing. We found a whale shark within 15 minutes even though it was the end of the season. It was in shallow water and I got so close... More
