Great trip with Margarita, the "Turtle Whisperer". Saw dolphins, dozens of whales with their calves, and a leather back turtle. Margarita was a great host and guide, providing information about the area, the whales, and the other creatures that make their home in Banderos Bay.

We booked a snorkeling tour to Los Arcos fairly last minute and Vallarta Undersea was very accommodating. Some members of the group were annoyed that our disembarkation was delayed 1 hour, as Hector (our dive master) awaited to customers who never showed up. We eventually...More
