This was by far one of the most memorable parts of my trip. Jorge was an amazing tour guide, he really took the time to tell us facts about the island and explain the overall history. He truly wanted everyone to have a great time and enjoy the experience and without a doubt my friends and I certainly did! We also got the chance to swim in the water and snorkel. Jorge took such great care of us while we were swimming and he took so many amazing pictures for us to keep. I highly recommend this tour if you get the chance!

We have had many excellent tours with Fabiola and Jorge and have high regard for their expertise as marine biologists and concern for passenger safety and comfort. Stable, quiet boat. Always a great experience.

We had an amazing tour with Jorge and the Capitain. They know a lot regarding the environment and region, we had a very good time listening and learning from them. The snorkelling was incredible, we had the chance to swim around beautiful fish, and Jorge took really good care of us while swimming. He also had his camera so we have very nice souvenir of us on the beach and swimming. We definitely recommend to book the tour with Explora Vallarta, amazing time guaranty :) Thanks again, we enjoyed so much our time in the region, and we will be back!

Many Banderas Bay tour operators advertise "whale watching" trips, but if you are serious about seeing and understanding whales this is the tour for you! Marine biologists Fabiola and Jorge have a deep understanding of the Bay's ecology and the unique features that draw hundreds of these magnificent creature to these "nursery grounds" each fall. The small boat (six clients max) is another advantage due to its maneuverability and responsiveness to whatever whale activity is in progress. They keep their camera clicking and send the photos to you afterward, so you can put your energy into simply observing the whales, dolphins, boobies, etc. These are folks who really care about their work and their mission to protect the unique ecology of Banderas Bay.
