Any good Snorkeling Spots near Vallarta Palace

We are staying at the Vallarta Palace in May and are looking for snorkeling areas near the hotel. Are there any or is scuba diving in deep water the only option?

As far as i know the snorkeling in the bay of bandarsi is not very good as the water is not that clear off the beach...But we went on a boat B.B.Q it took us past ware the film was made the night of the iguana..The boat carried on to the outer reach of the bay to ware we wier having our B.B.Q...The water there was as clear as day with abundance of fish to be seen the snorkeling there was fabulous....I do not know the name of this beach but as we was walking there was buterflys every ware ...It look like on the night time there there they have it all lit up with candels so some thing else would happen there on a night time...This was back in 98 when we was there last..But going back this year for our Holidays from England...Chris

The beach mentioned is Las Caletas. It is a private beach and you go by paid excursion.

Not precisely sure where Vallarta Place is located, but there are at least three charter operators that take people out on snorkelling and diving excursions in the area. Price is reasonable -- if your log book is up-to-date; if not, be prepared to pay for an orientation session in the pool.
