Plush cushions, a second-story sundeck, and a gourmet lunch (cocktail included) set this Marietas Islands whale watching tour apart from similar excursions. After a 2-hour ride—and hopefully a whale, dolphin, or sea turtle sighting—stop to snorkel, kayak, paddleboard, or ride a float on the water—your guides will swim soft drinks or cocktails from the open bar out to you.
What to Expect
Make your way to the departure office in Sayulita for a short drive to La Cruz marina, or head to La Cruz Marina directly. Upon arrival, board a 60-foot (18-meter) vessel and set sail to the Marietas Islands. Coffee, juice, fruit, and pastries are included for breakfast.

Take your choice of seating: plush cushions, splash nets, and a sun deck provide comfortable options. With the help of your crew, keep watch for whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and other marine life during the 2-hour boat ride to the Marietas Islands.

Arrive at the Marietas Islands and snap on your snorkel gear for a  30–45 minute guided trip through caves before returning to the boat for lunch and cocktails. The crew then provides paddleboards, kayaks, water tubes, floats, and a waterslide for you to enjoy on your own over two hours.

Return to your original departure point at the end of the tour.

Ok Trip that arrives at Marietas Islands but not Playa del Amor

I feel bad about posting this review because the entire crew makes every single effort to make you feel comfortable, they sure know how to provide great customer service, but perhaps the owner should be more specific and not mislead customers like it happened to...More
