Must do!
Wow what an amazing experience I must say. I’m terrified of being in deep water but Thalia was so welcoming and gave me so much reassurance I felt so much more at ease. Thalia gave such and amazing tour accompanied by the captain. They’re very prepared for any given situation. You get see a lot of sea life and see places you wouldn’t by just visiting Vallarta. I would definitely recommend doing this activity with group! 10/10 recommended!

Thank you Thalia for the amazing experience.

Great snorkeling adventure
If you like snorkeling this is a great tour. You get taken out to Los Arcos islands in the Bay of Banderas on a beautiful clean boat with a marine biologist who really knows her field. We couldn't fault this tour. We were given lots of informative details on the bay and the different fish, corals, dolphins, whales etc, etc that inhabit the area. We even saw turtles. Simply an awesome experience. One we will never forget.

wonderful trip
Jul 2019 • Family
This was a very good trip for our family our guide was very informative. Not only did she go snorkeling with us but brought up shells from the bottom and explained what they were and how they lived. This was much more than a snorkeling trip it was more like a nature tour.

snorkeling and whale watching
Mar 2019 • Family
Had a day trip planned with snorkeling, hike, lunch and it was beautiful. Thalia was very knowledgeable. We didn't expect to see whales but we did have the pleasure of them showing up. That was exciting. You will enjoy it if you decide to go. :)

Cloudy water
Mar 2019 • Couples
Not the best snorkelling. Water cloudy. Quite a lot of fish from very small to half a metre, but hard to see. The crew were nice but did not offer the advertised option of going to the shore at Mismaloya. Slight detours to see a couple of whales and a sea lion was appreciated. Trip length 3.5 hours. A bit expensive in my opinion.

VallartaNatours
your opinion is hugly appreciated. as any nature based tour, there are some elements that we cannot predict , nor control, such as water visibility. However, you do mention that you did see lots of fish , as well as whales and a sea lion (both a big unexpected bonus). I woudl feel that it was a succesful tour, but yet again everybody is entitled to have an opinion. We will take into consideration your comments and will do much better next time.

Excellent 1/2 day snorkeling and nature adventure
We spent an amazing 1/2 day on the beautiful waters with Lisandro. Close up views of Los Arcos and the blue-footed boobies, to snorkeling the walls of Mismoloya. Great guide and a fun time.

A morning with Lisandro discovering the beauty under the sea is a great way to start a day. Nature has much to offer, we just need to pay attention and respect. Educational fun under the sun 😎

Fun and very Educational!
Jan 2019
Small group was very interesting as you got to know everyone. The marine biologist was very knowledgeable. She watched and lead us, at a slower pace which give you time to look at the fish and marine life, not just swmming to try and keep up. No booze on this tour but that was actually quite pleasant. Sandwiches and snacks are provided. Was a bit more than other tours, but WELL WORTH IT!

Nothing in Nature cannot be rushed. Nor would our tours, since each part of our tours is considered thoroughly to enhance the enjoyment of the experience at its fullest. All our senses are to be turned on, feel the current and water temperature, see the beauty under and above water, hear the sounds of waves, birds and marine animals, smell the oceans perfume and taste home made lunch ... You will feel the love we put into everything we do. Thank you

Small intimate tour makes for an incredible experience
Nov 2018
Our family had the opportunity to go snorkeling with two separate tours while in Puerto Vallarta. Vallarta Natours was by far the superior experience over the larger tour. We saw far more marine life and we’re able to explore a much larger and much more beautiful area. Thalia’s vast knowledge as a marine biologist provided our curious kids (and us too) with an amazing education and a ton of fun! Los Arcos is absolutely beautiful and Thalia brings you out early enough to beat the crowds. Wonderful day!

Dear Michelle, Thank you for allowing us to be part of your family vacations. Nature is best appreciated in smaller groups. The bases for ecoturism: Respect, education, support, awareness....having kids on oard makes the experience so much better. We get to see it all through their eyes, we learn next to them and marvel the same way. It's like starting over and fall in love again with what we do. Many many thanks.
