Nuevo Vallarta's location on Banderas Bay lends itself
well to one of the most wonderful experiences to be had in Puerto Vallarta
- seeing the city from the water. It's picturesque setting, cut
into the jungle-draped hillsides of the Sierra Madre, with the city skyline
reflecting in the blue waters of the bay, is truly memorable. Aside
from that, these great bay cruises will take you to the best snorkeling
areas and beaches Puerto Vallarta has to offer. During whale season,
you can often see whales from the boat.
of the most popular tours in Puerto Vallarta, Las Caletas is a private
hideaway, owned and serviced by only one company. Relax, snorkel,
kayak, or swim with a sea lion.
These cruises visit our best beaches for beach activities and snorkeling.
The weekends are normally the least crowded days. Mid-week is the most
crowded time of the week.
Vallarta Bay Cruise FAQ's
Q:WHAT IS THE WATER
TEMPERATURE IN PUERTO VALLARTA? A: During the summer months, the water
is bathtub warm, approaching 85°F. During the winter months, it cools
down significantly, and you often find temperatures dipping into the high
60s to low 70s. The Marietas Islands tends to be about 5 degrees cooler
than the sites closer to the beaches.
Q:WHAT IS THE VISIBILITY
LIKE? A: The best visibility is found during
the summer months, when visibility can reach 100-130 feet. During the
winter months, you'll find it to be about 15-60 feet.
Q:ARE THERE FISH? A: Yes, there are a lot of fish to be
seen. To really see lots of fish, we recommend Los Arcos followed by
the Marietas Islands the most, though all the sites will have plenty to see.
Q:I'VE SEEN ANOTHER
BOAT SOMEWHERE THAT I DON'T SEE LISTED - WHY? A: Essentially, all the bay cruises are
very similar. The differences are in the crew and the locations that
they go. We've found our favorite crews for each of the different locations
around Banderas Bay - to add more would just be duplicating tours. There
are several dozen boats in the bay, and they aren't much different from each
other. We also have many more to choose from that depart from the
Vallarta marina, about 10 - 15 minutes by taxi from Nuevo Vallarta.
