Sunrise Session to Los Arcos kayak & SUP

Aguacate, Mexico

Experience hosted by Alberto

3 hours
Includes food, drinks, equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

For your experience, we will meet at Mismaloya Beach, seven-miles south of Puerto Vallarta.

First we will introduce you to the water with an introductory safety introduction on your preferred equipment. Then we will hop on our paddle boards and/or kayaks and paddle about 20-30 minutes from Mismaloya Beach to Los Arcos Marine Park.

Pink skies paint the clouds above you and calm morning waters will beckon you through the rocky islets of Los Arcos. Catch the sunrise over the Sierra Madre Mountains as you make your way through hidden sea caves, thought by the ancients of this place to be a kind of sacred portal. And then, put on a mask and snorkel to catch a glimpse of life below the sea. We will share information and stories of this magical place you are visiting, as well as fresh water and an energy bar for nourishment.

Once we've wrapped up our time at the park, we will then make our way back to shore.

Our Sunrise Session is a spectacular experience from start to finish. And from there, your day is only just beginning.

Other things to note:
Choose single or double kayak, or stand up paddle board (SUP). Availability dependent on weather. Children are 50% off the listed price when riding along

Where you'll be

Where the Sierra Madre mountain range meets the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, Mismaloya is a small fishing village found seven miles south of Puerto Vallarta—a beach town boasting spectacular views of the natural wonders of Los Arcos Marine Park.

We'll start and end the experience at Mismaloya Beach. And during the trip, we will visit and explore the islets of Los Arcos by paddle board or by kayak.

Fue una gran experiencia. Si no tienes experiencia, ofrecen una clase un día antes para que te puedas adaptar. Ampliamente recomendado.

We had a great time with our guide, Felipe! We ended up having a quiet tour and he took my daughters and I out for a bioluminescence tour in the early morning. Felipe did a great job making my daughters and I feel safe and comfortable and entertained us with some epic ocean stories and fun movie facts about Moana.

Incredible time. Beautiful location. Highly recommend this excursion. Felipe was an incredible guide. If you are prone to seasickness maybe bring some Dramamine.

This was a fabulous tour! Felipe met us at 5:30am so we could go out and see the bioluminescent. He was really knowledgeable about where to go, what to look for and helped make us feel safe and comfortable paddling in the dark! Watching the sun come up on the water was a really incredible experience. Felipe took tons of photos for us which we are so grateful for. I highly recommend this tour!

Our SUP trip with Felipe was amazing! We left in the darkness and were able to see the bioluminescence and then explored Los Arcos while watching the sun come up over the mountains. Highly recommend!
