Post-Conference Monday Sober Cruise

Jan 21st

$39

January is the best season for Whale watching and cruising in the Banderas Bay. With permission of the parks department and the guidance of an onboard biologist, we cruise the mainstream of the Migrating path of the new herds/pods and their calves. Guaranteed to see lots of Whales! Then we continue more North for a guided Eco tour of the Marieta islands where we will anchor and have some more relaxation and fun.

The day starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends around 5:00 pm. The day starts with a light continental breakfast (Juice, Coffee, sweet bread, cookies, fruit, yogurt, and granola).

We then cruise for about an hour out to join the whales. After cruising with the Whales we’ll continue to the Marieta islands and anchor in front of one of the famous beach craters. Lunch will be served onboard and will consist of a baguette with deli meat and cheese, green salad, with fresh pasta.

Coffee and beverages will be available throughout the cruise…

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 sunbathe at the island stop, so bring your bathing suits if you like that idea.

There are only about 250 seats on board, and this cruise does sell out, so sign up now. Don’t be left ashore! Extra seats for the cruise may be purchased.
