Snorkel Center & Shop

In view of our Puerto Vallarta snorkeling shop and a short boat ride away are some very special pacific snorkel spots.

Snorkeling in Puerto Vallarta, under the cliffs of Punta de Mita, feels like stepping out of civilization into pure nature with only snorkeling equipment, as eagles, frigates, and pelicans, typical of the Punta de Mita area, circle overhead.

Empty pacific ocean beaches, backed by primeval forests, beckon you. Nearby the snorkel site, the bat cave, only on the very calmest days you can hear their squeaking.

Don’t leave Puerto Vallarta without taking a look at the Pacific Ocean below its surface to meet its inhabitants. Everyone can enjoy snorkeling to cool down on a hot vacation day. It’s as easy as swimming or easier because of the help of the fins.

Daily Snorkeling Trips in Puerto Vallarta

Snorkeling at “On the Rocks” you are at the best spot in Punta de Mita bay to snorkel close up to schools of grunts, schools of green jacks might whiz by, tiger morays are more present here than elsewhere on the Puerto Vallarta coastline.

At “Love Rocks” you might swim out a little deeper and see how the site got its name, a big heart shaped rock or to “The Last Beach.” In either case porcupine fish will swim lazily below you alongside schools of goat fish.

Summertime in Puerto Vallarta is your best chance to enjoy very calm and clear waters at these sites. In the winter humpback whales visit Punta de Mita and can sometimes be heard singing while snorkeling.
