Marietas Islands Eco Discovery Snorkeling Adventure
From $75.00
Low Price Guarantee
Discover the protected sanctuary of the Marieta Islands on this 3-hour snorkeling tour from Sayulita and see an array of marine life, including sea turtles, dolphins, coral reefs and blue-footed boobies. After snorkeling, soak up the sun on a white-sand beach. Lunch and transport to the marina are included on this small-group tour limited to just eight people.
What to Expect
Meet at the dive center prior to the 9am departure time. You will be transported to the marina where you will board the boat then begin the journey to the Marietas Islands.
An UNESCO protected site, the Marietas Islands are the best setting for an unforgettable journey into the wildlife.
The Marietas are a small group of islands a few miles off the coast of Punta de Mita (Banderas Bay, Nayarit). A protected national park since the late 1960's, thanks to the activity of an international group of scientists led by Jacques Cousteau, the Marietas Islands are home to an abundant marine life population; massive sea turtles, manta rays and dolphins are not difficult to spot any time of the year. On these rocky volcanic islands, wind and water have created a warren of caverns and coves. Tens of thousands of birds reside on these rocks, with species like the Blue-footed Booby nesting in only two places in the world - the Galapagos Islands and the Marietas Islands.
In winter, the bay becomes the backdrop for one of the most spectacular events in nature: the arrival of the humpback whales. The whales arrive for their mating season and spend several months close to the islands, where they give birth to their calves.

Isa and his crew are the best!

I went on this tour alone and had to be at the marina by about 7:10 for the tour which started at 7:30. First get your 20 pesos marina ticket then go to the ticket booth where you pay the park fee and get your...More

I am trying to get this review removed but looks like it's not working. The excursion described definitely do not match our trip, most of all the part where it states that not certified divers are taken in the ocean without a previous training...Definitely not...More

A service, not a tour...

The reviews posted about this company and it's snorkeling service at the Marieta Islands led my fiance and myself to believe it would be a much different experience. While I am not here to say whether it is good or bad, I would like to...More
