Espiritu Santo Island Tour

 Isla Espiritu Santo and its surrounding islands were declared part of a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1995. The islands are both uninhabited, Ensenada Grande beach, on Isla Partida, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. The reserve is made up of two main islands, Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida. There are numerous smaller islets and islands with white sandy beaches, shallow coral reefs, extinct volcanoes, endemic wildlife and interesting geological formations to explore. Due to the large size of the reserve (It would take many weeks of exploring to see everything) our tours are customized to your interests. There are opportunities for snorkeling with sea lions, reef snorkeling, free-diving, whale watching, bird watching, hiking and just plain old hanging out on the beach.   

During a typical full day tour we will encircle the islands, making stops at Isla Ballena and Candalero Bay for snorkeling and some beach exploration, the Los Islotes sea lion colony for some swimming with the sea lions and a scenic tour of the East Side of the island before returning to La Paz. Your tour includes an education on the dynamics of these habitats, the fish and wildlife species that live here and the best practices for viewing them in the wild. The tour is led by a guide knowledgeable of the history of the islands and marine life found here in La Paz.

The tour is eight hours in duration and includes

  • Wet-suit and snorkeling equipment
  • Lunch (vegetarian/vegan options), juices and water, snacks and fresh fruits.
  • In-water guide (Spanish/English)
