Discover a snorkeling site and see beautiful saltwater species of fish, corals, and rays on this snorkeling tour from Puerto Vallarta. Explore Los Arcos and swim in the warm waters of Bahís de Banderas. Watch Puerto Vallarta from the sea and see its diversity of marine and coastal birds.

Depart Puerto Vallarta and set out in Bahía de Banderas for this exciting tour. Relax on board the boat while traveling to snorkeling sites in the bay. Explore the bay and swim in its waters while snorkeling.

Take in the scenery of the site and watch the various species of marine and coastal birds who rest and nest in the rocks and vegetation, such as brown pelicans, frigatebirds, seagulls, and herons, among others.
