Full description
Spend a day observing the majestic humpback whales off the coast of Puerto Vallarta and snorkeling in the beautiful Marietas Islands National Park.

The humpback whales are some of the most playful animals, especially during their migration to mild tropical waters for mating and calving. Males initiate mating rituals by singing and display impressive demonstrations of power such as tail flapping, pectoral fin slapping, and rising above the water, and newborn whales splash around their mothers as they learn the ways of the water.

Sail past these spectacular sights on a classic sailboat, and observe the majestic creatures without disruption. Learn from your guides about their habits and habitats as you slowly approach the beautiful Marietas Islands National Park. Once at the park, you can snorkel and visit the beautiful Nopalera Beach. There are also some limited spaces to journey onto the hidden beach of Playa de Amor. Then, raise the sails in the afternoon breeze and look for more whales on your return.
