Then fed the fish and offerred anyone who wanted to jump in and take a swim- they provided mask. Beautiful photo opportunities.

Not worth your time if you are going to snorkel. So crowded, it was very choppy the day we went, not great fish viewing. We took a sail boat which was nice and the day was nice, but the snorkeling was very disappointing.

Tons of colorful fish. Easy to get to from Mismouyasa. We snorkeled which can be limiting since you cant go as close to the rock. I can see scuba divers seeing more. Something anyone who likes snorkeling and is in the PV area should do. If you get the boats by Barcelo, can go out for about 200 pesos each.... More

We took our 8 year old daughter and had a blast! We didn't pre-schedule this excursion. We met with beach vendors and only paid $100 dollars for all of us and we had approximately 2 hours to boat and snorkel. Saw amazing sights and wonderful fish. This is a must do- especially for younger children. Great time and we would... More

Excursion set up by Vallarta Adventures. Vis 30' and temp 82F at 84' depth. Lots of turtles, small rays, trumpet and box fish, snake fish, angels, etc. Very little vegetation. Good organisation on board despite the limited space. A bit on the expensive side @ 98USD for 2 tanks (88$/1 tank), but we were happy with the excursion!

Fish galore along with an abundance of other aquatic life. This was a hoot. A fairly strong current though depending where you dive.

This is a place that photos can't do justice. Getting up close to the formations you realize how large they are. Lots of birds to see. I loved how the waves hit them. Water is clear for this area so it makes for decent snorkeling.
