Marietas Islands: Snorkel Cruise from Puerto Vallarta
Spend the day immersed in the marine life of the Marietas Islands and the Bay of Banderas on this full-day cruise from Puerto Vallarta. Even those with no experience will feel comfortable participating in guided snorkeling and kayaking tours, with all equipment included, to catch a glimpse of the Mexican Pacific’s abundant flora and fauna. Travel light, as breakfast, lunch, and an open bar are included on the boat.
What to Expect
Meet your boat at Puerto Vallarta’s Maritime Terminal in the early morning. Travel light, since all recreational equipment, as well as breakfast, lunch, and beverages, are provided.

Set out for the Bay of Banderas and the Marietas Islands. En route, take in the scenery and eat breakfast while your crew handles logistics. Keep watch for Pacific bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins, and spotter dolphins. December through March, you may see humpback whales in the area, too. Learn about the local marine life’s biology and behavior, as well as Mexico’s conversation efforts, from your guide.

Take guided kayaking and snorkeling expeditions throughout the bay and islands. Instruction and equipment are provided, so even beginners will feel comfortable. Learn about other Mexican Pacific inhabitants, such as blue-footed boobies, red-billed tropic birds, manta rays, and tropical fish.

After enjoying lunch and an open bar, return to the Maritime Terminal in the mid-afternoon.

Most of the time is spent on the boat

I expected this tour to be more educational (like an ecotour), especially since it says "guided" snorkeling. The snorkeling was wonderful and I got some great footage on my GoPro (definitely recommend bringing one), but there was no guidance or education on the sea-life or...More

Boat #5 went above and beyond for us!

So while on our excursion, one of my daughters jumped into the ocean from her paddle boat and dropped her glasses. We had to be in at least 20 feet deep water. Thanks to these guys and their awesome diving skills they found them! Thank...More
