While somewhat limited due to visibility in the region, snorkeling is a possibility for anyone not scuba certified. In particular, the San Luciano Wreck can be explored to the surface. It begins just 4 feet (1 meter) below the surface. In Puerto Vallarta, the Banderas Bay is a protected area full of fish flitting along the rocky bottom. No matter where you find yourself, snorkeling tours will abound in these southern waters.
In terms of pristine natural beauty and scenic seaside vistas, few areas in the world are richer than the Marieta Islands. Protected as part of Marieta State Park, these natural wonders are home to a number of native wildlife species, as well as some of the most breathtaking landscapes in all of Mexico.
The Central Pacific Coast of Mexico has it all. From tiny to huge, your log books will be full of interesting creatures. In terms of pelagic species, frequently reported sightings include humpback whales, whale sharks, oceanic white tips, manta rays, hammerheads, reef sharks and dolphins. You might also see schools of grunts, puffer fish and hawksbill turtles around the brightly colored sponges and stony corals. The seahorses and octopus love to hide out in the walls, reefs and wrecks. The Central Pacific Coast certainly doesn’t disappoint in the marine life category.
The Vallarta region boasts a diverse ecology, including scattered reef systems and the chance to see blue whales and dolphins.
