Client Testimonials

Our naturalist, Carlos, was incredibly knowledgeable, super friendly, and terrific fun. He could not do enough for us and was totally focused on our needs, ensuring we understood the wildlife we saw and how they were behaving and why; he explained the geology and the geography and some of the history of the Sea of Cortez. He was safety-focused when we kayaked, snorkeled, and hiked but in a very unobtrusive way.
