About this trip

About this trip

Join us on an epic adventure that is close to home in La Paz, Baja Sur, Mexico. This snorkeling safari and wildlife adventure is the perfect combination of R&R and guided activities. You will snorkel with sea lions, whale sharks and have amazing up-close encounters with gray whales in Magdalena Bay. 


Spend four unforgettable nights glamping on Espiritu Santo Island — a billion-star resort, of which The Travel Magazine has dubbed as “absurdly beautiful” and swimming in its water is like “swimming in a bottle of Curacao.”  Enjoy chef-prepared meals with fresh ingredients brought in daily, a variety of beverages, and the support of a full crew.


From our camp, we have quick access to the best of Espiritu Santo Island.  Each day is filled with fun outdoor adventures including snorkeling with sea lions at Los Islotes, hiking through pristine desert, and sea kayaking along towering volcanic arches.  On our way back to La Paz, we stop in the Bay of La Paz to get gill-to-snorkel with the largest fish in the world, - the whale shark!

Have you ever looked a whale in the eye? One night and two days will be spent in Puerto Lopez Mateos,  gateway to Magdalena Bay. We will meet Gray Whales up-close and personal. Baby gray whales are like puppies. They come right up to the boat to check you out. 


Trip Highlights:

  • Snorkel & free-dive in a place Jacque Cousteau named, “The Word’s Aquarium.”
  • Glamp on one of the world’s most beautiful bays – it’s not roughing it at all.
  • Guided snorkeling trips in small groups to explore coral reefs, rocky reefs, and sandy bays.
  • Sea kayak along volcanic rocks, sea caves, and arches to get up close to shore birds and sea lions.
  • Spend a day having close encounters with Gray whales at Magdalena Bay.
  • Plunge in and play with 400 wild and friendly sea lions.
  • Taste tequila! This tequila talk will introduce you to different types of tequila and the tequila making process.
  • Informal evening presentations about ecology and conservation.
  • Snorkel with whale sharks!! These gentle giants are the largest fish on Earth. 

Open to men and women ages 18+.  All skill levels welcome. No experience necessary.   

If you can swim, you can do any activity on this adventure. We’ll help you become comfortable with snorkeling and kayaking through personalized instruction, proper gear fitting and education about the surrounding environment so you can focus on taking in the sites, soaking up the experience, and capturing your moments with photos and videos. – Your friends will not believe your pictures.

This trip was a fantastic adventure. The staff was professional, knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rafting 80 miles on the Main Salmon River was my first experience with Green Edventures. They are a top-notch company and I hope to join them for another trip. Everything from registration to the beginning our trip months later was handled very professionally and expediently. Their staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They have been in the adventure travel business long enough to work out the kinks and deliver a smooth and outrageously fun trip.

Iceland is a beautiful country and Green Edventures is a wonderful way to visit and experience many Icelandic adventures. From hiking to waterfalls, riding Icelandic horses, kayaking and beautiful beaches, the group was a terrific mix of like minded women sharing their enthusiasm for exploring the world. Needless to say, I had a great time! Thora, our Icelandic guide, was delightful! Diana Lyster

A wonderful trip for anyone who loves the ocean! So much wildlife and a much larger appreciation for the island of Roatan. Never a boring day, great food, even better people. Scuba not required but heavily recommended.

This trip was refreshing and it certainly kept my attention! Iceland gave us dramatic beauty, a large variety of experiences, and for me, exposure to a different way of governing and living. Tara was, of course, enthusiastic, aware and in charge every step of the way and she solved small problems efficiently. Thora (driver and guide) was an excellent companion for us all and very knowledgeable. The other guides (kayaking, horseback riding, iceberg exploring, and so on) were also skilled and always friendly. I was a single traveler and enjoyed meeting the groups of women from elsewhere. Good job, Tara!

I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
