End of the season, but we still saw whales, and caught some game fish, you can find the owner on line, or FB, if you speak Canadian you can ask for a discount. ;-) Boat is a dual inboard diesel-- fast, roomy, with a toilet.

Loved the travel around it plus I later stayed at Majahuitas Resort on the bay. Beautiful area. Drove past Mismaloya. Colorful sights.

The Bay of Banderas offers so many attractions. From the truly cliche para sailing to the adventurous deep sea fishing, you will find it here.

The afternoon winds offer fantastic sailing opportunities, and the bay is protected from big Pacific swells.

The main time to see the whales in Banderas Bay is between January and end of March when many types of whales are breeding. We booked the snorkeling/kayaking tour with Vallarta Adventures through Scott's Tours in Bucerias. Scott and his wife Vicki are very helpful. Our tour started in Nuevo Vallarta and took us out to the mouth of the Bay to the Marieta Islands. The real bonus was that if the crew spotted whales then the captain would head in that direction (within our route to the islands) To and from the islands we saw many whales fairly close-up from the comfort of our large, comfortable cruiser. After the snorkeling/kayaking the bar was open and the crew prepared the buffet lunch. I found the tour to be extremely well run.
