Imagine a luxury camping trip with your closest family and friends except this time you're on a boat - diving, snorkelling, kayaking, island exploration. The choice is yours. El Duque is a 53 ft converted trawler, she has 2 air conditioned cabins with 6 bunks and a bathroom in each. She is full of character, the original boat builder knew John 'The Duke' Wayne hence the name of the boat and some of her history. The bunk style accommodation will build camaraderie and lead to adventures on the high seas. There is a fully stocked galley and living area where you will enjoy a variety of home cooked meals and snacks throughout the day.

She also comes equipped with fishing rods and kayak for you to use in your spare time. We are set up for scuba diving and snorkel adventures and carry equipment with us. We have a spacious sun deck which is great for relaxing with a book or perhaps having a BBQ and cocktail in the evening. You may even decide to bring your bedding up here to enjoy sleeping under the stars. The dive platform allows easy access in and out of the water and there is some space for your camera and electronics too. She carries all safety equipment as required under Mexican Law, including oxygen, life vests, and fire suppressants. On our trips we also bring our 20ft panga to allow easy travel to/from the beach or for excursions. The price shown is for boat charter and your trip out at Sea. Please contact us for more information and for any promotions we may be having. We will be happy to help you create your own personal itinerary with the activities you want.
House Rules
Pets not allowedKid friendlySmoking allowed
The boat is suitable for children but I would not recommend it for infants due to the safety of being out at sea. Smoking is allowed on the boat but not inside - there are designated areas of the boat outside for smoking.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

It's another world!
After landing at La Paz which must be the friendliest airport ever and a 5 minute transfer to the marina it was like being in another world. Staying on a boat and travelling around the coast must be the most relaxing way of seeing the scenery and wildlife ever. Helping yourself to soft drinks and snacks with meals provided takes away any worries about feeding yourself while on holiday. Total chill out!

About the neighbourhood
La Paz is the capital of Baja California Sur and has lots to see and do; whether it is strolling the Malecon with an icecream or a coffee or investigating the catherdral and cultural centre you will want to allow a little time either side of your trip to have a wander. Isla Espiritu Santo (the island that we will mainly be adventuring on) has been described as the jewel of the Sea of Cortez due to its rich life above and below the water. Beautiful sandy beaches, healthy mangroves, and desert hiles define the landscape above the water. Below the surface it teems with life - from playful sealions, to flying mobula rays and the smallest nudibranchs there is always something to explore.
Getting around
For getting around Baja we recommend a car although this is not necessary, especially during a charter.
How to get there
The Marina where the boat is located is close to the airport in La Paz and only a short drive from downtown. There is secure parking at the marina with 24 hour security. When everyone is on board the boat and ready we depart on your adventure into the Sea of Cortez.
