TRIP REVIEWS:

TripAdvisor 1
We did it all on this fantastic 5 Day Expedition with Panterra Eco Expeditions! We boarded the MV Adventure, a beautiful 110′ ship and headed out on the Sea of Cortez for 4 nights and 5 days of sunshine, swimming, snorkelling to our hearts content, kayaking, bird watching and all the while being taken care of superbly by the Panterra crew. Lela, the owner, has created such a lovely ambiance for her expeditions’ guests and crew. You can tell immediately that the crew has been together for some time as everything works like a well oiled wheel. They just appear at your side when needed, the food is always amazing and served in a timely fashion (like when you get out of the water and there are amazing snacks laid out for all), you never see any areas that require cleaning as it is just always clean. It all just works and in a very professional way. Our most favorite experience on this trip was swimming with the mobula rays – we came across a couple of thousand of the and we all went in and snorkeled with them. Wow! It was so cool! Loved it! Loved the trip! Loved Lela and the crew and really can not think of a single negative experience on this trip. It was all fantastic and we can’t wait to go again 🙂 Definitely on my bucket list …. again!
