TRIP REVIEW:

Increíble
Lela y su equipo fueron ABSOLUTAMENTE INCREÍBLES en todo momento. Consiguieron que todos nos sintiéramos cómodos, consiguiendo que un grupo de desconocidos se hicieran amigos. Son personas atentas, profesionales, conocedoras y apasionadas que no te dejarán indiferente. La flora y fauna del Mar de Cortés es simplemente asombrosa. Navegamos en kayak, hicimos snorkel, nadamos con el tiburón ballena, vimos leones marinos y las aves más increíbles. Paisajes impresionantes y sorpresas siempre encantadoras (¡como encontrar tortugas marinas bebés en la playa!). ¡Oh! Y a bordo, deliciosas comidas y bebidas, siempre disponibles.

MUCHAS gracias a Lela y su equipo y felicidades por todo lo que hacen. No cambies nunca!!!!

Amazing
Lela and her team were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING at all times. They made us all feel comfortable, making a group of strangers become friends. They are attentive, professional, knowledgeable and passionate people who will not leave you indifferent. The flora and fauna of the Sea of Cortez is simply amazing. We kayaked, snorkeled, swam with whale sharks, saw sea lions and the most incredible birds. Breathtaking scenery and always delightful surprises (like finding baby sea turtles on the beach!) Oh! And on board, delicious food and drinks, always available.

A HUGE thank you to Lela and her team and congratulations for all you do. Don’t ever change!!!!
