Enjoy a family cruise
to the Marietas Islands protected paradise and
marine preserve, hitching a ride on board our
beautiful double-decker catamaran. You'll enjoy
watching humpback whales (in season), dolphins,
sea turtles, manta rays, and several kinds of
marine birds as you enjoy continental
breakfast on the way to one of the most famous
icons of Banderas Bay.
After a wonderful cruise, you will arrive at Las Marietas,
where you can enjoy great snorkeling in the protected marine
park. Our expert guide will point out the spots where you will
be able to see the most diverse marine ecosystem and swim around
colorful fish. If you’re lucky, you'll even see the Blue Footed
Booby, a bird that only lives here and the Galapagos
Islands! After snorkeling, you can enjoy some kayaking, paddle
boarding, or just swim and have a refreshingly good time.
After all water activities, back on the boat, the bar will
open and you can relax and grab your favorite drink! Get ready
for a hot cooked lunch while we cruise around the Marietas
Islands, as our tour guide will tell you more about this UNESCO
protected area. On the way back to Puerto Vallarta the dance
floor finally opens, so you can enjoy the music, dance or even
sing on karaoke! Our friendly crew will also have fun
games prepared, so the fun continues all the way till the very
Passengers: Sorry, this tour is
too long for most cruise ship schedules.
If you're in doubt, ask us.

This is a big
boat with a lot of people on it. It's
pretty basic, but fun as long as you're not
picky and you are into the lively
atmosphere, complete with music,
dancing, karaoke and all of that. This is
more like a family oriented kind of boat, this
tour is an incredible value for what you
get. But if that doesn't sound like
your scene, check out our
Marietas Islands Sailing for a more
upscale and relaxed experience, or our
Marietas Islands Eco-Snorkeling for a
true eco-tour experience.
You may be asked to leave either a room key,
your ID, or 200 pesos as a security deposit for the snorkeling
equipment. The water at the Marietas Islands may be
a few degrees cooler than sites closer to shore. Something to
keep in mind in the winter and spring months.
