Welcome to a magical, 6-hour tour of the legendary Marietas Island. These small, volcanic islands were made famous by oceanographer, Jacques Cousteau. Today they are a UNESCO protected landscape and water way for birds and turtles.

Take in the jagged coastline, coral reefs and abundant ecosystem. Then explore the white sands of Playa Amore, a hidden beach which is perfect for sunbathing. Play in the water, go for a kayak ride or explore your way through clear waters with a snorkeling adventure.

If you’re in joining us from December through March, you may be treated to Humpback Whale sightings.

Our journey begins northward along the crescent-shaped coast line of Banderas Bay. We'll cruise by charming Mexican villages and beaches on our way to the Marietas Islands. Explore this protected landscape from the deck and then jump in the warm waters for a swim or kayaking adventure. Finally, relax on the white sands of Playa Amore.
