Overview
Plush cushions, a second-story sundeck, and a gourmet lunch (cocktail included) set this Marietas Islands whale watching tour apart from similar excursions. After a 2-hour ride—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.
What to Expect
Make your way to the departure office in Sayulita for a short drive to La Cruz marina, or head to La Cruz Marina directly. Upon arrival, board a 60-foot (18-meter) vessel and set sail to the Marietas Islands. Coffee, juice, fruit, and pastries are included for breakfast.

Take your choice of seating: plush cushions, splash nets, and a sun deck provide comfortable options. With the help of your crew, keep watch for whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and other marine life during the 2-hour boat ride to the Marietas Islands.

Arrive at the Marietas Islands and snap on your snorkel gear for a  30–45 minute guided trip through caves before returning to the boat for lunch and cocktails. The crew then provides paddleboards, kayaks, water tubes, floats, and a waterslide for you to enjoy on your own over two hours.

Return to your original departure point at the end of the tour.

Beautiful way to see Marietas Islands and Bay of Banderas!

Excellent from the start to the finish. We were lucky enough to see Dolphins, Whales, birds, and other fish on our tour. The boat was very large and did not feel like a typical "party boat" you might find elsewhere. Only negative was that the...More

AMAZING Experience

The team at Chica Locca Tours were absolutely incredible. Long story short, I ended up getting extremely sick half way through the trip (stomach parasite from Mexico) and the team on-board looked after me SO WELL. I couldn't have made it through the day without...More
