Espiritu Santo Island Private Day Excursion

The archipelago of Espiritu Santo is a Natural Protected Area declared a World heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. 

This volcanic island is only inhabited by a few fishermen and is home to many endemic species, including birds, mammals, reptiles and plants. It is also home to the healthiest sea lion conlony in the sea of Cortez. This is an incredibly pristine place, with breathtaking views, beautiful beaches and astonishing wildlife. Here you can hike to hidden volcanic craters, swim with playful baby sea lions, dive with marine turtles, sunbath on white sandy beaches and relax in turquoise blue waters.

This really is paradise on earth.
