South Shore Private Sailboat Charter

South Shore, also known as Puerto Vallarta or Vallarta for short, is a city that boasts of centuries-old buildings, stylish shops, cozy restaurants, and artistic street vibe. It is one of Mexico’s most enticing coastal getaway destinations with the bay on the Pacific coast and palm-covered mountains. This inviting location is noted for its beautiful secluded beaches and coves that are only accessible by boat and that’s why many of our tour destinations are concentrated in the South Shore line.

With nature taking center stage in this spectacular place, what better way to enjoy it than to bask on the golden sandy beaches and take a dip in the warm water in the sunny weather? If you want something more exciting then put on your snorkeling gear and explore the colorful underwater scene of Puerto Vallarta where you can encounter fascinating marine creatures like colorful reef fish, sea turtles, dolphins, manta rays, eels, and more. You can also observe wildlife from the surface such as observing a wide variety of tropical birds. If your timing is right, you can witness magnificent whales from your boat during their migration.
