How safe is taking a tour to La Paz for whale sharks?

With the current state of cartel violence especially in La Paz, is taking a tour from SJDC to La Paz for whale sharks a major risk? Are there attacks by the La Paz marina?

Go, Relax, and enjoy. You will not have Banditos rushing down from the hills.

Dont deal or buy drugs, Dont get drunk and flash a big bankroll and you will have a safe fun trip.

We drove to La Paz last Saturday...the drive was fine. La Paz is great. Go to Los Islotes and snorkel with the sea lions.

Hi everyone,

We are considering taking a day trip to la Paz from Cabo San Lucas in November. From what I've read in this forum, the trip should be safe but from what is circulating in the news and other forums has stirred much sweats for many, including us.

Some in this forum said :" just have fun, don't do anything stupid" what is considered "stupid" in your opinion, can I ask?

Thank you all for your insights,
