We really enjoyed our trip out to the Marietas Islands with Eco Tours Vallarta. Our Capitan Raul, and our guide Melissa were great. They explained the delicate ecosystem of the Islands and show all of the sea life, plants, and birds. They even went out of their way to find humpback whales in the bay on our way out and back from the Islands. Raul turned the boat around to fish out plastic bottles he saw floating in the ocean. These guys really walk the walk! I can highly recommend this expedition to the Marietas Islands with Eco Tours Vallarta!

Our group enjoyed our time aboard the Prince of Whales, with Michael as our guide. I had read all materials ahead of time and was aware there was a possibility not everyone on our tour boat would get to go to the Hidden Beach. That being said, I feel fairly confident the tour company already knows the number ahead of time of how many they will be allowed to let go in. Of our group of 8, 3 got to go. While that's fine, and I do understand the need to limit visitors, it was still disappointing. And if they would tell you on the website that the criteria is WHEN YOU BOOK the tour, perhaps people would book way in advance to increase their chances. This was how the lucky 3 were determined.

Fernando took good care of me and especially my friend who was not a confident swimmer. We were able to visit the Hidden Beach and spent enough time there for pictures. The snorkeling was fine..we had good visibility in the first half and saw a variety of fish. The water got cloudy later so we headed back. I would have preferred more proactive explaining of the sea birds we saw -- we saw lots of birds at Marietas Islands but couldn't see any blue feet. On our way back I asked and was told we couldn't see the blue feet because the birds were juveniles, but they were in fact blue footed boobies. Had I known I would have tried to pay closer attention.

The snorkelling was a bit rough at times And no washrooms on board was a challenge Otherwise trip was good
