We took an boat tour of the area and visited the national park. It was beautiful, with something to see everywhere you looked (fish, birds, and rock formations). I would highly recommend a visit.

Fabulous waters off of Loreto. Take a boat , snorkeling or scuba trip. Not crowded. Gorgeous scenery with all the islands and mountains. A little chilly in February, rent or bring a Wetsuit.

I think it was Land and Sea Eco Tours? A US couple own it. The office was right on a corner. We also booked a second tour in Nopolo and that was they the hotel there. Both were excellent.
