On this four hour private tour, we will take you around each of the Los Coronados Islands in Mexico where you will get to view rare wildlife rookeries, unique rock formations, and animals that live on the islands.
Grab your passport and your binoculars and get ready to explore the Los Coronados Islands in Mexico!
Mexico’s Coronado Islands, off the Baja peninsula, are known for their small deserted beaches and crystal clear, azure blue and emerald green waters—only a short boat ride away.
When you arrive, the scenery and extraordinary sea life will amaze you. The sweeping landscape of rugged cliffs, natural bridges, and sea caves will make it hard for you to believe that you are only 14 miles away from the bustling city of San Diego.
Rich Biodiversity- You will get to see one of the most abundant eco-systems off the Pacific coast in a place that is wild and secluded. The perfect year round temperatures and pristine water creates unimaginable richness and bio-diversity.
Plan on seeing fantastic numbers of mammals and migratory sea birds—whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, sunfish, petrels, pelicans and the elusive boobies on this adventure tour.
