First of all when I booked this trip for my husband my children and their boyfriends we were told that we didn't need to bring any equipment and they had wetsuits and snorkel for us to use. Well when we got there they didn't have barely enough wetsuits for us. They were all very old wetsuits and pretty raggedy .... More

We booked very last minute with Marlin Adventures. Going on a trip the same day we spoke to them as they already had another couple going out. The office staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't need a wet suit as the water wasn't that cold and using one makes swimming more difficult. The masks, snorkels and fins were great... More

Had booked this with Adventure 19 in Todos Santos. They partnered with Marlin Adventures, who provided the tour. Our Marlin guide, Raul, was excellent. A smart, nice fellow, who speaks English fluently and clearly cares for the animals we are viewing and the clients he is guiding. The pangas we rode in seemed well maintained and the captain, Sergio, knew... More

La Paz has became an special place for us; specially for whom loves and respect the ocean; and when it's about swimming with whales, see dolphins playing and sea lions... the only name it comes to my mind is Marlin Adv. I like the boats that they have; they seemed more improved than the others and of course Roberto is... More

This was one of the most amazing trips. We were graced with a glorious day and a great group of adventurers. Raul was our guide and he was so knowledgeable. He has studied marine biology and he is a great people person. He was also very aware of keeping everyone safe. I went on the trip solo and feel like... More

The treatment was amazing, our guide was knowledgeable and made our tour remarkable, we took the Espiritu Santo snorkelling tour and were fascinated. Look for Sergio's ceviche, best ceviche ever created!

Marlin Adventures really went out of their way to accommodate us! With very little notice they put together a wonderful snorkeling tour for us. Our tour guide Jahaziel and our Captain Sergio really went the extra mile to help us see dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays, and many different birds on the way to snorkel with the sea lions. Jahaziel... More

To an extent, any marine life tour needs luck. We had that last Sunday. Boy did we have good luck! Escorted out by dolphins till we saw twin flukes in the near distance, and then Luck gives way to skill. Sergio is an expert captain. This guy moves his boat like a dancer. The boat is solid and well maintained... More
