Marietas Eco Discovery

Just offshore and inside Banderas Bay, rests a group of small, volcanic islands known as the Marietas Islands. These islands, made famous by oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, provide the perfect environment for an exciting eco-adventure.

Participate in snorkel, kayak and paddleboard activities to view the abundant marine life, and enjoy a guided eco-oriented tour around the islands while observing the unique wildlife (including blue footed boobies) that call this place home.

Getting there and back onboard a modern catamaran is half the fun as you can observe wild dolphins (they usually swim in the wake of the catamaran), whales (in winter), rays and even sea turtles.

The catamaran comes complete with an open bar, full buffet lunch and a friendly crew who put on a spirited and entertaining performance that will keep you dancing all the way back to shore.
