Caught a taxi to the centre in Nuevo Vallarta just before 7am from Riu Vallarta hotel. Had a light breakfast there (not enough seats). Left the jetty in a Zodiac rib twin engine style boat with driver & guide on board. First off we saw a whale & baby but not very active. Saw a copule of schools of dolphins. Gradually saw more whales, some blowing their spoutsa, others showing their tails/flukes just as diving then we saw them jumping and two slapping their dorsal fins in unison.
Lasted 3 hours 30 minutes and was very enjoyable. We went as far out as going around the islands at the north end of Bandaras bay. The female guide was excellent and delightful (wish I could remember her name. The ocean was very calm all morning & was great as my wife is not keen on boats. Got back to the jetty at 11am.
No toilet on the boat, so dont drink too much before going. They did issue aa small bottle of water and some fruit part way through the trip.More
