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 85°F. 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
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
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.
