While on board we will provide cold cut sandwiches, coffee & tea, soft drinks & cold water and sweet breads.

We suggest that you bring a hoodie or wrap to keep warm as it can get a little chilly after the sun goes down, and don’t forget a camera!

Monday Whale Watching Sober Cruise

Jan 20th 9:00 AM – 6 PM

$40

January is the best time of year for Whale watching here in Puerto Vallarta. Join us on Monday for the day (See FAQs Section: When to come and go for important details) 

With permission of the parks department and the guidance of an on-board biologist we will tour the mainstream of the migrating path of the Humpback Whale pods and their calves.

Then, depending on the weather and the captain, we’ll continue more north for a guided Eco tour of the Marieta islands or more South to the famous Los Arcos. In either case, we’ll anchor for lunch in front of one of the famous dive spots to allow a swim, snorkel, and/or kayak break.

The day starts at 9:00 a.m. with a light continental breakfast (juice, coffee, sweet bread, and cookies, yogurt and granola). Coffee and beverages with light snacks are available throughout the cruise with an onboard lunch while anchored off the island coast.

Lunch will consist of a baguette with deli meat and cheese, green salad, and pasta. After the whale watching we will go to the famous beach crater on the island, anchoring just outside.

Bring your sunscreen and sun hats and layers of clothing, so you can dress to keep warm if it’s cool, and to keep cool if it’s warm. There will be an opportunity to snorkel, swim and sun bathe at the island stop, so bring your bathing suits if you like that idea.

There are only about 200 seats on board, and this cruise does sell out, so sign up now. Don’t be left ashore!
