Did the boat trip to Coronado Island. Did try the snorkeling with the sea lions. But it was February and even with wetsuits the water was too cold to enjoy the experience. Stopped on the beach for lunch. Walked the path to the other side...More

We booked with Danzante Tours from Villas del Palmar just south of Loreto. Great staff. They showed us dolphins, sea lions, hiking, snorkeling and lunch. Great staff with a passion for teaching us about their beautiful marine park. Fun bunch.

Excellent tour of one of the islands of Loreto. Our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable of marine life. They include a very nice picnic lunch and snacks.

Had two, two-dive trips so I knew I’d see fish, but there is so much more. Sea lions to swim with the first day. Then Blue Whales and an unexpected whale shark the second day. Brown pelicans, White Egrets, Great Blue Heron, Frigate Birds, Blue-footed...More

Beautiful, protected marine park. Clear waters, mostly calm seas, great snorkeling, fishing, swimming and photo ops. Beaches for sunning, sitting and sand castles too.

Loreto doesn’t have a lot to see but look around and you will find nice walks and boat rides. It’s a great base from which to drive to see the gray whales of Magdalena Bay at Lopez Mateos

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.
