Tour Summary

You won’t have more fun than swimming with sea lions in Banderas Bay at the beautiful coastal oasis of Las Caletas. Snorkeling at this gorgeous site above a splendid coral reef is worth the trip in our motorized catamaran, but when you add our fully-trained sea lions to the mix, this tour will be the most memorable activity that you enjoy while visiting Puerto Vallarta. The sea lions are playful and intelligent marine mammals that enjoy interacting with people in the warm waters of Banderas Bay. These mischievous scamps truly enjoy performing tricks and games with tour participants. These delightful animals will leave a lasting impression on you; you’ll be surprised to see how intelligent, curious, and fun sea lions really are.

The secluded cove of Las Caletas is a pristine and secluded coastal destination that attracts divers and snorkelers due to its splendid beauty, crystalline waters, and thriving coral garden full of prismatic tropical fish. Join our friendly bilingual dive guides to snorkel in this teeming marine environment. The biodiversity in the waters of Las Caletas is astonishing; you will be amazed at the amount of aquatic species living in such a relatively small area. After some snorkeling, you can relax and enjoy a delectable lunch buffet and with a refreshing beverage. Relax and catch some rays on the snow-white sands of Las Caletas beach. There are plentiful activities available for visitors to enjoy, including a nature hike, Paella cooking lessons near the shore, and kayaking in the cove with a naturalist guide.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Sea Lion Dive In Las Caletas is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
