Marietas Eco Discovery

Marietas Eco Discovery

A few miles off the coast of Puerto Vallarta, in the Banderas Bay, you will find some of the most unique and awe-inspiring island habitats anywhere in the world! The Marietas Islands are home to some of the best snorkeling and one of the world’s most incredible beaches! These one of a kind islands were made famous by well-known oceanographer and discoverer Jacques Cousteau, who was blown away by the natural beauty found in and around these islands.  

With our Marietas Eco Discovery, you and your group of travelers can see these islands for yourself! This full-day tour includes everything you need to fully immerse yourself in the gorgeous natural habitats of the Marietas Islands. Guests will get the chance to explore some of the best snorkeling anywhere in Puerto Vallarta, and they will also get to explore the islands via kayak! These are both fun, safe, and easy ways for people of all ages to take in the beauty of the Marietas. Our expert eco tour guides will also take you to different areas of the islands, giving you an education and eye-opening tour of the islands, including how they were formed and the area’s most rare natural features.

This activity is lead by one of the most talented, passionate, and knowledgeable crews around. They will be on hand the entire time to answer any of your questions and to make sure you are having a truly fun experience. The tour heads out on a large, spacious catamaran with clean restrooms and a full open bar. A lunch buffet is also included with your trip.

The Mexican government has designated the Marietas Islands as a national park, thus offering it additional environment protection. On our Marietas Eco Discovery adventure, we comply fully with all standards and guidelines to promote and support the protection of this delicate and unique environment. In fact, for each person on board, a portion of proceeds is sent to the Marietas National Park!
