Tour Summary

This sailing and snorkeling excursion is perfect for a family outing while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta. Eco-adventurers and water sports enthusiasts alike will love this amazing trip out to the pristine marine sanctuary at the Marietas Islands.

First, you'll begin your excursion by sailing along the breathtaking coastline of Banderas Bay aboard or trim 60-foot sailing vessel, Isis. You can catch some rays on deck as the tropical breezes blow through your hair. Then enjoy a complimentary continental-style breakfast in one of the most beautiful settings on Earth - this isn't your crowded corner greasy spoon back home - the panoramic coastal backdrop is truly amazing to behold. Listen to soothing tropical music as you cruise over the brilliant blue waters on your journey to the amazingly beautiful Marietas Islands. Be sure to be on watch for Dolphins racing alongside the boat. In the winter, you may even spot a Humpback Whale as it breaches the surface. Our friendly and professional crew is fluent in English and always bestows the best service to our clients. The captain and staff of the Isis enjoy talking about the local aquatic species and their magnificent habitat.

Then you'll reach your ultimate ecological destination -- the immense aquatic sanctuary of the Marietas Islands, where you'll enjoy a thrilling adventure snorkeling above an amazingly vibrant marine habitat. The coral gardens that surround these breathtaking isles provide a thriving environment for hundreds of aquatic species, including a spectrum of prismatic fish, marine turtles, sea horses and even octopi. This excursion to the Marietas Islands will be the most memorable tour you take while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta.

After snorkeling, you can satisfy your hunger with a scrumptious deli lunch on deck. Nature lovers can also hit the beach, hike around and bird watch. You may also opt to just relax on the pristine sands of the beach and sunbathe - you are on vacation after all.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Marietas Islands Sailing & Snorkeling is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
