Tour Summary

Enjoy an entire day of outdoor fun as you travel via sailboat to an amazing snorkeling spot, before reaching the charming coastal village of Yelapa, where you'll hike inland to beautiful waterfalls. 

This journey begins aboard the 54-foot sailing craft, the Tinuviel. First you'll sail to an amazing coral reef where you can snorkel and witness a sample of the remarkable array of marine life that inhabits Banderas Bay. The sheltered waters of Banderas Bay offer excellent visibility for snorkelers and divers alike. 

Then you'll sail aboard this trim vessel along the southern shores of Banderas Bay to the sleepy little coastal hamlet of Yelapa. There are no roads to this still-undeveloped village which can only be reached by boat or on foot or horseback along a jungle trail. After reaching this picturesque coastal town, you'll have the sense that you have travel backwards to a more relaxing time. Yelapa is the perfect place to relax and wind down and really feel as though you are on vacation away from the trappings and hectic schedule of the contemporary world. This sailing excursion to Yelapa is the perfect cure for the workaholic in your family. 

The jungle that surrounds Yelapa contains some hidden oases as well. You can hike along a forest trail lined with lush vegetation, blooming tropical flowers and colorful songbirds to remote waterfalls. These hidden cascades are truly a wonder to behold. You'll feel as though you've stumbled upon the Garden of Eden. Take a dip in a placid pool alongside a waterfall. After your jungle excursion, you can lounge on the beach at Yelapa or try more snorkeling at a secluded cove.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Yelapa Snorkel Adventure 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!
