Live this adventure in the Pacific and feel like a true local ...
Join me to explore Los arcos de Mismaloya in a truly authentic and personalized way, with enough time in the water to discover all the beauty that this place has to offer.
Get ready to learn new techniques to snorkel, dive and pose in the water to get spectacular photos.
YOU DON'T KNOW TO SWIM ... Don't worry, I have floating devices, and I will be by your side all the time giving you the confidence so that you feel safe and relaxed, you will see that after some advice and exercises you will feel like a whole fish .

We start with a 15-minute trip by truck where we will enjoy spectacular views of the Bahia de Banderas until we reach the viewpoint of Los Arcos, from there we will walk a couple of minutes along the road until we reach the hidden entrance of a beach that hides an impressive landscape little known even by local people.
We will gently enter the water, explore the caves and tunnels of the islands, swim slowly in search of the most colorful fish, elegant manta rays and friendly turtles that inhabit the area, all this while capturing the best moments with my submersible camera (you can check my work on instagram @Adrenalyn_junkies)

Don't think twice and book now ... !! it will be a pleasure to be your guide

with my camera i will captured the best moments of our underwater trip so you have a photo shoot out of the ordinary in one of the most emblematic landscapes of Vallarta.

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 353 reviews.

Sebastian was an excellent snorkel guide. He is very helpful and really teaches you the techno. We broke outbid our comfort zone and I am so glad we did. It was exhilarating! Although I struggled a bit, Sebastian would step right in and give me an extra push...literally. We felt more like we were just hanging out with a friend. We will be sure to contact him again on our next trip to Puerto Vallarta.

Sebastian is very friendly and fun. He’s also knowledgeable and makes sure that you’re comfortable the entire time. My experience overall was fun and exciting. I’ve never snorkeled like this before and I had a blast. I recommend this experience!

Sebastian is very nice and super patient. I got very scared and didn’t go through with snorkeling. I was scared bc of the waves & the length of the swimming. I have done basic snorkeling in calm water and I am a pretty light swimmer, but the waves and the rocks scared me! They were unpredictability high! Sebastian was still super patient and encouraging regardless of my decision, and he took good pictures of me on the rocks! This would be a great excursion for a true adventurer and it looked so beautiful, but I was concerned about safety!

Fun experience! My partner wasn’t comfortable snorkeling but by the end of it he was vibing. The pictures we had taken were pretty neat, but the area itself was a real highlight. Beautiful cave!

La experiencia es muy divertida y entretenida, Sebas sabe bien como guiarte, hace que las cosas sean muy sencillas y las fotos son espectaculares :) lo recomiendo muchísimo y volvería a hacer el tour, no es como otros paseos comerciales que hacen todas las agencias de viajes, es distinto y muy único.

Super experience autant par l'activité en elle même que par le profesionalisme et l'attention permanente de Sebastian durant la session. Vraiment à faire si vous êtes à Puerto Vallarta.
