ShoreTrips says...

It is thought that this horseshoe-shaped bay was formed by an ancient volcanic crater. The waters of Bahia de Banderas are protected from the inclement weather of the open seas because it faces west and is framed by the Sierra Madre mountain range.

This sailing tour is meant for the sailing enthusiast. Our 40-foot Hunter Legend performance sailboat, which easily catches the consistent breezes, holds just 15 passengers plus crew, so you'll have a very personalized day.

If you wish to participate in the sailing of the boat, you are more than welcome. However, you can be sure that this crew is accustomed to pampering its guests and no one will mind if you would rather sit back and relax on deck.

If you are looking for a bit of shade, there is a small bimini for you to lounge under for some relaxation. There's plenty of time to take in the wondrous marine life that can be spotted around the bay. Keep an eye out for dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays, and, in the winter months, you may even see the magnificent humpback whales!

There will be time to stop for a fun snorkel in a secluded cove as well. Here, the fish are numerous and the coral reefs are healthy. Snorkel gear will be provided for your use.

  • This Tour Includes:
  • 4-hour private charter on a 40-foot sailboat
  • Time for snorkeling
  • A relaxing 1/2 day ON and IN the water!
