What you'll do

Chek my instagram @adrenalyn_junkies and Facebook /adrenalynjunkies.

We start with a road trip along the coast until we reach the famous viewpoint of Mismaloya where we can see the Arcos and take some pictures with such a landscape.
We will walk a little through the jungle to get to the beach, where I will explain and teach everything necessary for the activity. After a session of stretching and breathing exercises we will be ready to enter the water and explore everything the bottom of the sea has to offer.

We will dive, swim and take many photos while we explore the islands and their caves, I will show you inside and out all the fauna of the place and tell the legends that have accompanied these islands since always.
After almost two hours of being in the water we will return to the beach where we can relax a little and share our experiences. We will enjoy a small snack to recover before taking the bus that will take us back to the city.
Other things to note
The photos will be delivered at the end of the tour digitally on your cell phone or via email.
The package includes 10 photos per person.

Where you'll be

Los Arcos de Mismaloya is one of the most famous places in Vallarta and Mexico due to its beauty, its large size and the importance they have for the preservation of marine species and birds, as well as the fact that the San Andres fault starts a few meters from the place makes your visit more interesting, that's why it is also one of the favorite places for those who practice diving.

Rated 4.97 out of 5 from 339 reviews.

I accidentally booked him during a zoom class and he graciously waited for me to finish so that I would not miss this experience. I am so happy he did. It’s one of the best experiences in Puerto Vallarta, he went at my pace, always made sure I was comfortable and able to proceed with the experience which at first sight may look intimidating but it’s really not. I highly recommend doing this activity with him. He is professional, knowledgeable and will customized this experience to your level so that you feel comfortable. Lastly, he is easy to communicate with and he is truly passionate about snorkeling and sea life. I’m beyond happy with my experience today.

If you aren’t sure about taking this tour, DO IT. This is by far the BEST tour I have done. You can tell Sebastian loves what he does, and is a pro at it. I am new to snorkeling and aren’t comfortable with water. He was attentive and made sure I was comfortable, and helped calm me the whole time! The view is unbeatable and get the local experience. I enjoyed it so much I booked a different tour, for the very next day.

Súper recomendado!

Sebastián gave us quick tips and training before the trip started! This helped us get comfortable with the equipment and the water. Once we got to Los Arcos the snorkeling experience was 5 star and the patience Sebastián had with our group made the trip very personalized. We got to take our time to take pictures and really enjoy all the underwater views! Gracias amigo!

Sebastian is a very friendly guy. He took a lot of photos of every person and made sure to get cool shots of everyone. I would recommend this experience for both the snorkeling and the photos that come along with it!

I had so much fun on this adventure. Sebastian took us to do things that normally you wouldn’t be able to do on large group excursions. Swimming inside a cave that swells come in and out of, learning how to dive down properly etc. I always felt safe, Sebastian knows the water well. I found I love this style of snorkeling vs coral snorkeling because you’re able to dive down and have a little more freedom. Overall I wouldn’t change anything about the experience.
