Tour description provided by Viator

The Bay of Banderas and the Mexican Pacific offer a vast array of wildlife and are available for you to explore during this exciting day tour. You'll have the opportunity to discover the wonders of nature while looking out for dolphins, whales, giant manta rays, sea turtles and tropical fish, all in their natural environment! Complete with bird watching, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking in the warm waters that surround the Marietas Islands, this eco-adventure provides for an exciting itinerary on your Puerto Vallarta vacation!

This day tour successfully combines a day of fun in the sun with the wonderful opportunity to learn more about the ideal ecosystem and diverse sea life that Banderas Bay has to offer. Gaze at Pacific Bottlenose dolphins, spotted dolphins and spinner dolphins as they swim in their luxurious Banderas Bay habitat. Watching them all-year round is a great way to learn more about these beautiful and intelligent mammals.

Encounter other marine life such as whales, giant manta ray and tropical fish as well as indigenous birds including the blue-footed booby and red-billed tropic bird that are situated at the Northern end of Banderas Bay.

During the day, you'll have time to explore the islands' rocky caverns and archways while on a kayak, snorkeling or even scuba diving! For your comfort and safety, knowledgeable and bilingual eco-guides are always on hand to help, advise and entertain you! After you explore to your heart's content, a relaxing afternoon siesta gives you the opportunity to kick back and relax on the white sands of a beautiful, secluded beach.

Please note: you will only see humpback whales during the winter season which runs between December 8th and March 23rd
