What to Expect
Your morning starts at the Puerto Vallarta marina. Board a 26-foot (8-meter) yacht for your personalized sightseeing cruise. Your captain can suggest stops and help customize the itinerary to your preferences. Cruise along Puerto Vallarta’s south shore and enjoy unobstructed views of the Malecon (waterfront promenade) and the Romantic Zone. Stop to snorkel at Los Arcos National Marine Park and then cruise to Las Animas, a secluded beach that's only accessible by boat. Everyone is able to get down from the boat and the water is calm and shallow, so kids can enjoy this activity too. Take a kayak out for a spin and then have lunch at one of the beachfront palapa restaurants (own expense). Relax with an ice-cold beer on the yacht’s covered deck and then cruise back to the marina to end your tour.

Had a great time, the captain and owner Fernando did a great job, laid back pace and adjusted the normal tour because we wanted to see some whales, and we got lucky to find some. Highly recommend, we will use his services again.
