The Marietas Islands are an excellent choice if you don't mind the long boat ride - lots of fish, coral, and things to see.

Please note that the water temperature at Marietas is a few degrees cooler than the sites closer to shore.


For safety reasons, expecting mothers and people with back, heart or neck problems are not permitted. People older than 65 years old can't do this activity. For snorkeling, guests must know how to swim and should have a general level of comfort putting their face in the water.

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.
