We were fairly disappointed with our cruise. Perhaps our expectations were too high given the great reviews here and elsewhere, but for the price we felt the experience was sub-par. The main problems were: 1) it's advertised as a Whale Watch tour yet we spent less than 3hrs watching whales on the Sea of Cortez portion. 2) we spent 6hrs... More

The 35 person crew was outstanding, the cuisine was excellent, the adventures were wonderful. There is something for everyone; from snorkeling with sea... More

I guess I'm the lone negative on this tour. Maybe I didn't know exactly what to expect. What I do know is...I snorkel all the time in the Caribbean and have never been so disappointed in my life! When finally spotting a whale shark When they said "go" you go! There was no waiting around to see if everyone was... More

This is a small ship cruise and there were only 54 passengers and on a ship that can carry 84 and an amazing crew on our trip. We have sailed with a big cruise company and did not find that type...

We had a fabulous trip on the liveaboard Rocio Del Mar diving our way down the entire length of the Sea of Cortez. My husband and I have been on numerous liveaboards and we really believe that the Rocio Del Mar has the best layout of any we have been on. The cabins are nice with enough room with comfy... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the Sailing course with Tim Geisler as our captain and instructor. Tim is a seasoned sailor and passionate instructor. He made the... More

Beautiful water and excellent spot fishing all year round. Clear water (seeing my feet is important to me,) and gentle waves in San Carlos make for perfect beach days!
