La Paz, Snorkel & Birdwatching at Gaviota Island
This will be a nautical excursion to a sanctuary of beautiful bays, full of marine life, and one of the best-preserved ecosystems of the peninsula of Baja California. Your first stop will be at the little island  of San Rafaelito where you can observe a colony of sea lions, seagulls, sardines, snappers, and many more fish living in the coral reef. Jump into the clear water and snorkel with these beautiful animals and admire at the same time the colorful reef around you. Get back in the boat and travel to one of the most beautiful and unknown beaches in Baja California Sur, “El Merito.”Afterwards your journey will continue to Gaviota Island. As you come closer you will already notice that this volcanic rock island is covered with birds, since it is a natural refuge for thousands of seabirds. Your guide will give you all the information about the different species and with some luck you can even see blue-footed boobies, yellow-footed gulls and great blue heron. Get your snorkel gear ready again and enjoy another amazing snorkel time in the Sea of Cortez.

La Paz, Snorkeling at Balandra Beach
Enjoy the sea breezes as you travel past Pichilingue Beach on the way to San Rafaelito Island. With a low-depth reef, San Rafaelito Bay is a great spot to snorkel. The calm, clear water has a visibility of up to 30 feet and sea lions love to frolic nearby. Home to over 4,000 different marine species, San Rafaelito also offers a magnificent powdery soft, white-sand beach, numerous reefs and underwater rock formations. Some of the aquatic life you'll encounter during snorkeling could include schools of speckled blue and yellow Cortez angelfish and neon-bright queen angelfish, moray eels, coral heads and of course, sea lions. Then, you'll head over to Balandra Bay, where you'll find eight inlets, a coral reef and beautiful white-sand beaches framed by purple and ochre cliffs. But Balandra is more famous for its unusual rock formation known as Mushroom Rock, or El Hongo, as it's called by the locals. After a snack and refreshments, you can relax on the white-sand beach, gaze out at the vivid turquoise water, take a hike in the low mountains, or snorkel in the salt lagoon teeming with thousands of fish. You'll find that the water is so shallow here that you can walk across to the volcanic cliffs that run down to the shore or to the mangroves that surround the bay. When your exciting adventure comes to an end, you'll return to the boat for a restful ride back to the pier.

Please note: This tour is not suitable for guests with neck or back problems nor pregnant women. Wear your swimsuit, bring a towel, sunscreen, camera and change of clothes, and extra money (USD or MXN).
