Explore the best of Banderas Bay: snorkeling at a marine reserve, exploring a beach side hideaway, sightseeing in an indigenous fishing village or traveling to a remote cove.

Photo Gallery South Bay Experience

Ada Sailing’s 6-hour South Bay Experience offers the best of the Bay.

Select from snorkeling at a marine reserve, exploring a beachside hideaway, sightseeing in the indigenous fishing village or traveling to a remote cove accessible only by boat.

Of course, you will enjoy a first-class al fresco dining experience on a secluded beach. Large groups will also enjoy our canopy for intimate beach dining.

If you’re visiting the Banderas Bay from December through March, you may spot Humpback Whales in our warm waters. Of course, this is an added bonus for our South Bay Experience, but if you’d like to devote an entire excursion to whale watching, then check out our popular Whale Watching tour.

There are many places to see along Puerto Vallarta’s picturesque coastline. Create your own “surf and turf” experience and then indulge in our first-class service.
