Tour Details

Located in the Sea of Cortez, there is a beautiful archipelago named Espiritu Santo, surrounded by blue waters and pristine beaches of soft and white sand. The catamaran that we are sailing in this cruise is a 33’, made in Mexico and designed specially to navigate the Sea of Cortez waters. It’s built with the highest standards of quality and security without sacrificing any comfort, and also can take a wheelchair. Has comfortable seating, shaded areas, head, freshwater shower, and easy access to the sea and back, this makes the difference and makes it the ideal boat for this kind of trip.

Venture starts in Marina Fonatur, from there passing in front of La Paz city downtown will reach the south of the archipelago, crossing it until we get to Los Islotes, one of the biggest sea lion colonies in the Sea of Cortez. Here you will be able to experience swimming with them! They are very sociable animals and like to show off with acrobatics and chasing each other, if you are lucky there’s also a chance to interact with one of them.

Later, we will continue with our tour to one of the majestic bays on the island, where its beauty will captivate you.

Once the catamaran is anchored, the crew will set up for you to relax, enjoy, explore, take great pictures, and of course a delicious lunch. Also, time to swim or just relax on the white sand and turquoise waters.

The archipelago of Espiritu Santo is without a doubt home to many species from the region, more than 32 types of reptiles, more than 98 of birds and most of them are available to watch year-round. Also, there are remains of the Pericu tribe that lived in the region until the end of the XVIII century.

In this venture on our way back, you can capture images close to the impressive and rare rock formation “The Mushroom”, icon for La Paz. Keep sailing hoping a pod of dolphins that live in La Paz Bay will accompany us for part of the journey. Trip will end at the same marina where we started, this will be the end of a lifelong experience.

If you start your venture in Los Cabos, we have transportation available, where we will make a brief stop in an iconic and famous local restaurant with typical Baja Sur food, have breakfast and then continue to Marina Fonatur.

World Heritage Site

Today, the incredible waters of the Sea of Cortez that wash the shores of this Island, have motivated many investigations on marine species, and that is why many scientists are interested in participating. The importance of the conservation of this site is paramount for survival, which is why UNESCO has declared this as WORLD HERITAGE SITE, by being one of the most visited ecotourism destinations.
