Whale Shark Tour and Sea lion Tour – the highlight of Baja Sur
Join us for this awesome snorkel tour with the breathtaking whale sharks and ALSO play with a colony of playful sea lion pups on the enchanting Island of Espiritu Santo. Los Islotes on Espiritu Santo Island is the largest breading sealion colony with 600 adults and more than 100 cute pups annually. Taking time for lunch on a remote beach, this trip will be in your memories for a lifetime.
The juvenile whale sharks that we swim with are typically 5 m to 10 m (15 ft to 30 ft) but at maturity can grow to ~18m (60ft) by only feeding mainly on the smallest creatures in the ocean – plankton. Snorkeling with this impressive fish is often a once in a lifetime experience.
The sealion pups provide endless entertainment by showing off their extraordinary agility under the water, they are inquisitive, non aggressive and extremely fun. Also on the Island are colonies of blue footed boobies and frigate birds. We often see pods of dolphins and whales too.
Join us for this spectacular trip, it’s family friendly too and will be the highlight of your vacation.
Tours run through the Whale Shark season: Mid October until 31 May. If you are certified divers we can also dive with the sea lions and snorkel with the whale sharks please contact us to plan this nature extravaganza!
