Dellis was excellent with our younger son (9yrs old) who was a little nervous in the water. She was always watching out for everybody in our group to ensure we had a good view of... More

The company is very professional with a knowledgeable guide who was very helpful with the young members of our group and very attentive to all of us. They obviously cared about our safety as well as the safety and security of the whale sharks that we were privileged to swim was. The gear they provided was in very good shape... More

Excellent service. Great tour and information. Swam with whale shark, saw humpback whales, flying manta ray, swam with sea lions and topped the day off with dolphins. Tour guide and captain went out of their way to make trip memorable. Looping back to get as close as possible to whales. Thank you Captain Martin and tour guide Hacien!

We had a party of 9 adults that went out to snorkel with Whale Sharks and Sea Lions. Weather conditions were pretty lousy, but because of the expertise and experience of Sergio and Armando, we had a GREAT once-in-a-lifetime experience. Even timid participants were guided to a great time. I would recommend this company above any other. Thank's guys for... More

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
