What you'll do

For your experience, we will meet at Paddle Zone: our shop located seven-miles south of Puerto Vallarta on Mismaloya Beach. First we will introduce you to the water with an introductory safety lesson on your preferred equipment. Then we'll hop on our boards and/or kayaks and paddle about 20-30 minutes from Mismaloya Beach to Los Arcos Marine Park. Imagine gazing over the Pacific ocean as golden light reflects back onto the rocky cliff faces of Los Arcos National Marine Park. Thousands of endemic birds who have nested there suddenly take flight and circle high into the sky above you. We share information and stories of this magical place you are visiting, as well as fresh water and an energy bar for nourishment. And after dusk, you'll look down from the star filled sky to see that the waters have come alive—you’ve been gifted a chance to observe bioluminescent waters around the sea caves and grottos of Los Arcos. Once we've wrapped up our time at the park, we'll make our way back to shore to relax and enjoy some refreshments, while you have a chance to check out the photos we took on the water. Our Sunset Session is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed. PLEASE NOTE: During the summer rainy season (July-October) electrical storms often prevent us from paddling out in the evening. For this reason we recommend our Magical Sunrise Paddle to observe bioluminescence.
