Plush cushions, a second-story sundeck, and a gourmet lunch (cocktail included) set this Marietas Islands whale watching tour apart from similar excursions. After your cruise—and hopefully a whale, dolphin, or sea turtle sighting—stop to snorkel, kayak, paddleboard, or ride a float on the water—your guides will swim soft drinks or cocktails from the open bar out to you.

Now it's time to experience ALL of our awesome activities provided as part of every ALL INCLUSIVE Chica Locca Boat Tour, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, not to mention our 2 exciting water slides off the second deck, and our water tubes.
