Beautiful tour, always great to be on the Sea of Cortes. Saw a fin whale this trip, spotted sting ray, lots of fish. Water is clearer than the bath water, and perfect for snorkeling.

This is a wonderful place to experience unspoiled marine life and coastline. This area is not overdeveloped like many resort destinations.

We fished around Carmen Island for 3 day. It is a natural rugged paradise. The cliffs were beautiful. The fishing was good and there were even big horn sheep on the rocks. Amazing place

We just got back from Loreto and spent most of our time fishing and snorkeling. It’s a beautiful area where you can get away from it all!

I think it was Land and Sea Eco Tours? A US couple own it. The office was right on a corner. We also booked a second tour in Nopolo and that was they the hotel there. Both were excellent.
