DESCRIPTION

This day is the perfect mix of ecological discovery, natural beauty and spirited entertainment. As you reach the islands, designated as a National Park, you will encounter over 90 species of birds that call the island home. Enjoy time in the clear refreshing waters around the islands swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and exploring. Following the water activities, the entertainment starts—Vallarta Adventures style—with a deli-style lunch, open bar, music and an entertaining performance by the crew. A great way to end a great adventure.

Just offshore, inside Banderas Bay, rests a group of small, volcanic islands known as the Marietas Islands. These islands, made famous by oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, provide the perfect environment for an entertaining eco-adventure. Experience wildlife above and below the water as you kayak, snorkel and explore the unique ecosystem with our informative and fun guides and crew.

Don't miss out on the best snorkeling conditions we have had all year. With light rains this year, the waters around the Marietas Islands are as clear-as-can-be and the marine life is abundant. Our guides will take you snorkeling and introduce you to all the creatures that call Marietas home. The islands offer the best conditions in the bay; come see why Jacques Cousteau fell in love with the islands and started the movement to protect them.

Once out at the islands, our bilingual eco-guides will get you set up for some amazing kayaking and snorkeling - even leading you on a guided trip. They create a fun, safe environment so you can focus on fun and exploring the rocky caverns and archways and truly experience the natural beauty of the Marietas Islands.

Designated as a National Park in 2005 and an important refuge and nesting area for over 90 species of aquatic and sub-aquatic migratory and native birds, the islands offer plenty to see above the sea. Our guides will take small groups for an up-close eco-tour - educating guests on the wildlife, formation of the islands and showing the area's unique features.
