ShoreTrips says...

Maru is a marine biologist. Edwardo is a wildlife photographer, whose work has appeared in National Geographic magazine. Together, they operate a wonderful guided service that gets you out into the wild to experience these magnificent sea creatures.

This trip offers you the opportunity to visit these fabulous animals in their natural environment and to participate in a research project that assists scientists in understanding and protecting the dolphins in Banderas Bay. Although there are no guarantees, you may get the opportunity to slide into the water and swim with some of the members of the dolphin family!

This wonderful excursion begins with a light breakfast, followed by a briefing. It will take about 30 minutes to boat out to the bottlenose dolphin pod and then you'll spend about 1.5 hours visiting the dolphins. This will surely be a memorable experience!

Soft drinks and granola bars are provided on board.

Remember that these dolphins are not enclosed and this is the NATURAL way to observe and enjoy them.

  • This tour includes:
  • Dockside briefing
