Banderas Bay offers a sanctuary for a great profusion of nature and sea life. A motorized catamaran carries you out to the sheltered waters of the Marietas Islands -- an ideal habitat for year-round dolphin encounters. These friendly, adorable mammals like nothing more than to swim alongside the boat and show off their athletic prowess.
The catamaran will stop long enough to allow you to explore the rocky caverns and archways of Marietas Island. Snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboarding gear is provided, or you can take an eco-tour around the islands.
Humpback whales are regularly sighted in the bay from December through March, leaping out of the water or noisily slapping their enormous tails on the surface. Keep an eye out for giant manta rays, sea turtles and multi-colored fish as well.
Lunch is served on board the boat.
Tour operates approximately mid-December through April.
