What to Expect
Meet your boat at Puerto Vallarta’s Maritime Terminal in the early morning. Travel light, since all recreational equipment, as well as breakfast, lunch, and beverages, are provided.

Keep watch for Pacific bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins, and spotter dolphins. December through March, you may see humpback whales in the area, too. Learn about the local marine life’s biology and behavior, as well as Mexico’s conversation efforts, from your guide.

Take guided kayaking and snorkeling expeditions throughout the bay and islands. Instruction and equipment are provided, so even beginners will feel comfortable. Learn about other Mexican Pacific inhabitants, such as blue-footed boobies, red-billed tropic birds, manta rays, and tropical fish.
