Travel companies and outfitters offer a variety of guided tours and organized activities, from island kayak trips and whale-watching to language immersion and cooking classes. A number of the newer ones are committed to promoting environmentally aware tours and trips.
Since each outfitter may partner with others to offer unique trips, it’s difficult to keep up with all the options. Aside from the activity-specific outfitters mentioned earlier in this travel guide, Espíritu & Baja Tours (Obregón #774-A, btw Allende/Juárez, tel. 612/122-4427, www.espiritubaja.com ) runs professional and reasonably priced trips, such as snorkeling at Espíritu Santo  (US$65 pp), whale-watching trips to Bahía Magdalena  (US$120 pp), sportfishing (US$240 per boat), kayaking along the Pichilingue Peninsula  (US$70 pp), and airport transfer services (airport to hotel US$15, hotel to airport US$7).
