Nuevo Vallarta Snorkeling FAQ's

Q: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "BAY CRUISE" AND A "SNORKELING TOUR"?
A: Our snorkeling tours are purely for snorkeling.  You'll snorkel at the best spots, with the most amount of time in the water.  They are on smaller boats with less people than the bay cruises, and are the best option if you really want to snorkel, and don't care so much about partying on the boat or being on the beach.  A Bay Cruise is primarily a cruise, that also allows you to go snorkeling, just not as much as these snorkeling tours, but in return they offer open bar, lunch, snacks, and even breakfast.  Depends what you're looking for.

Q: WHAT IS THE WATER TEMPERATURE IN NUEVO VALLARTA?
A: During the summer months, the water is bathtub warm, approaching 85F.  During the winter months, it cools down significantly, and you often find temperatures dipping into the high 60s  and low 70s.

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.  The Marietas Islands are a nationally protected marine preserve - there is a lot of sea life both above and beneath the surface.

Q: CAN I SNORKEL FROM THE BEACH?
A: Due to the nice, sandy beaches of Nuevo Vallarta, you'll have to take a boat to reach any good snorkeling spots.

Q: ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
A: On rare occasions, it may be necessary for your tour operator to switch snorkeling locations at the last minute due to issues with visibility, jellyfish or water conditions.  All tour operators in Nuevo Vallarta reserve this right.  It is in the interest of providing you with the best and safest snorkeling experience given the conditions of the day.
