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 end!

Marietas Islands Puerto Vallarta

Snorkeling Marietas Islands Puerto Vallarta

Snorkel Puerto Vallarta Mexico


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.
