Tour Summary

If you want to encounter the splendor and variety of Banderas Bay, then this tour is for you! Come with us as we search for dolphins playing in the Bay, catch glimpses of the awe-inspiring humpback whales that migrate through these waters, and spend hours relaxing or engaging in one of many fun activities on Marietas Islands. Let us guide you around the gorgeous natural sites and the diversity of aquatic life of Banderas Bay on this exciting tour.

Have a day you won’t forget when you hop aboard our catamaran and go whale and dolphin sighting, take a scuba diving or kayaking excursion, or participate in many more exciting activities. Humpback whales pass through Banderas Bay from December until March during their mating season migration. You can hear these colossal creatures communicate with one another or view them rising out of the sea. We guarantee that encountering the whales in the bay will be an unforgettable experience. And there’s still more. The dolphins that thrive in Banderas Bay all year long will captivate you. You will be able to see these bottlenose dolphins jumping among the waves and view firsthand their intelligence and playfulness in their natural habitat as our catamaran sets off for Marietas Islands. There are boundless opportunities to create a relaxing and fun-filled day once we reach Marietas Islands. You can take a relaxing nature walk and catch sight of tropical birds in their surrounding natural beauty. You can stroll down isolated beaches, discover secluded caverns, take a kayak tour or go on a snorkeling adventure and investigate the aquatic life – such as sea turtles, manta rays, and a variety of tropical fish - in these placid, clear waters. In these surroundings, you can also just relax on a pristine beach and soak up some sun and enjoy the constant breeze.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Marietas Eco Discovery is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
