Swim with sea lions at Espiritu Santo island

Your morning begins by departing from your Los Cabos resort to the city of La Paz, where you can take a transfer or make your own way. If you opt for the transportation option, you'll enjoy an authentic Mexican breakfast during a stop at the famous Hotel California in the town of Todos Santos. Then return to your vehicle and head toward La Paz, whose main dock awaits with the catamaran that will take you on the Sea of Cortez.

Once you board, sail away and feel the breeze as the vessel takes you to the island of Espiritu Santo. Its natural reserve, nicknamed ‘Islotes’, is home to a colony with more than 300 sea lions. The protected national park that’s part of the Espiritu Santo Archipelago is also home to more than 500 species of fish. You'll have a chance to snorkel in the beautiful blue waters, surrounded by all of these colorful marine life forms.

Enjoy panoramic views of beaches and rock formations

After you’ve completed your swim with sea lions and other sea life during the Espiritu Santo snorkel tour, sail to the beaches of the islands of El Candelero or Ensenada Grande, where you can enjoy an included ceviche lunch, with a baguette and other snacks on the way. As you sail back to La Paz, you'll visit the renowned rock formation at Balandra Beach. At the end of your exciting Baja adventure, you’ll be comfortably transported back to your resort in Los Cabos.
