The Marietas Islands are perhaps
the premier snorkeling destination in Puerto Vallarta. A protected wildlife sanctuary and marine preserve
made famous by the famed Oceanographer Jacques Cousteau,
the waters or the Marietas Islands are home to a
dazzling array of sea life. On the ride out
to the islands, giant manta rays, sea turtles, dolphins,
and humpback whales (in season) are common sightings. The islands are also home to rare species of birds,
such as the Blue Footed Booby - only found two places
on earth - the Galapagos Islands and here at the Marietas.
This snorkeling tour takes
you to the Marietas Islands marine preserve for
snorkeling - you'll get twice the snorkeling
time as any other Marietas tour in town.
This is not a bay cruise, but a true snorkeling
tour with one of the top scuba and snorkeling
companies in Puerto Vallarta. You may see
manta rays up to 25 feet across, eels, octopus,
and even sea horses as well as a wide variety of
tropical fish and other sea life.
Yes! This tour makes a
