Our guide Diego was head abd shoulders above many other guides I have had on scores of excursions. He was knowledgeable and if he didn't know the abswer to a marine life question he woukd look it up. He told relevant and interesting facts and anecdotes, and he worked his ass off making all of us comfortable and well-served. The catamaran was the most comfirtable I have ever been on (dozens) becsuse instead of webbing in the bow it was solid with cushioning and the seats were padded and roomy. We saw many fish and other sea animals at great reefs, both rocky and coral, a d the staff allowed us to snorkel at will onstead of in a tight knot whike keeping an eye on all of us. And the food was plentiful abd drlicious, fresh and healthy--as good as a fine restaurant! Our bus driver, Leo, was careful and efficient and we all survived the long drive and enjoyed a wonderful day in the Sea of Cortez off La Paz.

We always have a fantastic time with Cabo Adventures. I would say this is our 6th or 7th excursion with the company and we always are impressed by the service and the experience we have. This was no different. From the door to for transportation to the fantastic food and drink offerings to the beautiful boat (with a restroom!) and fantastic staff - just everything was great. Of course the snorkeling with the sea lions and other marine life made the experience what we sign up for and was amazing, but when you see other groups going by with nothing and we are munching on yummy food and having cocktails, you know we picked the right group to book with. Don’t miss out!!

This was a GREAT day!!! Dellis and guerimo were fantastic! They made the excursion fun, easy, and comfortable. They even took the time On our way back to explore a pod of playing dolphins! Recommend 110%!!!

At first, no one was there to greet us. But after we talked with the taxi drivers they directed us to Pascal who took us to our condo

Great trip, awesome food, staff was amazing! Loved every part of this tour
