ITINERARY (7 hours)
You will meet your guide in MARINA LA PAZ, once onthe boat the guide will supply biodegradable sunscreen, wetsuits and snorkel gear and will brief you about biology, enviroment, safety and how to get the best of this experience.
It takes 1.5 hours to reach the Islotes, north of Espiritu Santo, where you will snorkel near the biggest sea lion colony in Sea of Cortez. There is more than 500 sea lions, with many curious pups. Please notice due to park regulation is mandatory to wear life vest in the water. Some close up interaction with the sea lions pups is possible but not guaranteed, but surely they will swim near you.
There are several magnificent beaches on the islands, many operators choose Ensenada Grande for lunch, and sometimes is overcrowded. We prefer Candelero or Corralito, not short of beauty and less busy. You guide will set up a delicious lunch in one of those paradisiac beaches with table, shade and chairs for you to enjoy fresh ceviche, tasty meat and beans/cheese burritos and fruit.
Lunch can be customized for vegetarian, vegan, gluten or lactose intolerance. Please let us know if you have any other food restrictions.
Optional: shork walk on the island to find the fresh water well, or snorkeling in other coral area or over the C-59 wreck if there is good visibility.
