Set off in search of magnificent humpback whales and frolicking pods of dolphins when you climb aboard a zippy Zodiac on an exhilarating 2.5-hour adventure on the Bay of Banderas. Puerto Vallarta is a preferred destination in Mexico for the sighting of whales, and although there are no guarantees, whale-watching excursions in these waters have a high success rate. If whales are spotted, the agile nature of the vessel allows the captain to get up close and personal for a unique encounter and spectacular nature photographs. The waters are also home to a plentiful dolphin population. Your 2.5 hours spent on the ocean is ample time to relax and take in the natural wonders of the waters. Bring a light jacket and your sunscreen. Enjoy the views on your ride to port.
