Tour description provided by Viator

Snorkeling at Los Arcos is one of the most popular tourist activities and it's not hard to see why! Nature has provided wonderful scenic surroundings for your snorkeling expedition, with arches and caves that have been sculpted by the forge of the ocean for thousands of years!

Departing from the Puerto Vallarta Marina, your friendly crew will have breakfast ready for you as the catamaran passes close to the shoreline, with views of downtown Puerto Vallarta.

Snorkel approximately 330 feet (100 meters) offshore in the warm and scenic bay of Los Arcos, otherwise known as 'The Arches', where granite rock formations of arches and caves have been sculpted by the forge of the ocean. All things natural are protected here so that you can have the amazing opportunity to snorkel in a rare environment and explore the brightly colored fish and steep rock walls that engulf this marine area.

Afterwards, you'll be taken to Las Animas Beach where you can enjoy a leisurely swim.
