What you can expect

Snorkel, swim, and kayak through the stunning rock formations scattered around the Marietas Islands. Beloved by Jacques Cousteau for their rich marine life and clear waters, this underwater playground is an ideal place to spend the afternoon.

Meet up with your boat at a convenient departure location on the waterfront in Nuevo Vallarta or Puerto Vallarta. Enjoy a scenic boat ride as you make your way out to the Marietas Islands. When you arrive, don snorkel gear and jump into the water to look for graceful manta rays, leggy octopus, and scores of bright, tropical fish.

Follow up your snorkelling adventure with a guided kayak trip. Learn about the islands' geologic past and keep your eyes peeled for migrating whales and playful pods of dolphins. Back on the boat, tuck into a tasty deli-style lunch featuring delicious sandwiches and salads, or kick back with a drink from the open bar while your crew sets a course for your return to port.
