Day Sailing on Banderas Bay
Enjoy the perfect mix of activity and relaxation on a day sailing tour of Puerto Vallarta, a great choice for first-time visitors and nature lovers. Catch views of Vallarta’s coastline and the Sierra Madre mountains as you glide across Banderas Bay aboard a luxury sailboat, snorkel in a secluded cove, and try to spot humpback whales and dolphins. Plus, lunch, hors d'oeuvres, and a premium open bar are included.
What to Expect
Your morning starts when you meet your crew at the marina in Puerto Vallarta. After a short introduction to sailing, board your luxury sailboat and set sail on Banderas Bay.

Sail around the bay and enjoy views of Puerto Vallarta’s coastline, tropical forests, and the rugged landscape of the Sierra Madres. Stop at a beautiful golden sand beach and snorkel in the protected waters of a secluded cove. Then relax on the sailboat’s comfortable deck and sip an ice-cold drink from the premium open bar.

Keep an eye out for humpback whales, dolphins, and sea turtles as you gently glide across the water. Savor tasty hors d'oeuvres and have lunch on the boat, and then sail back to the marina to end your Puerto Vallarta tour.

Awesome crew of Johnny the captain, Alex the bartender and Anna the chef.

Great relaxing trip. The crew really takes care of you. They are friendly and try to get to know you in the short time you are together. The food, beverages and service is top of the line. I would definitely recommend this trip.

Vallarta Adventures is the best one to ask. Is she tall for her age?

It is not a private tour, but they do limit the number of passengers to about 15, so the boat is not crowded. If you want to charter a private outing I believe they can accommodate that as well.

I believe it’s 28 but often doesn’t fill that capacity.
