Cruise Banderas Bay with Boatsetter
Discovering the Heart of Mexico by Boat
The Jalisco province of Mexico offers many different types of boats for rent and fishing opportunities abound. Whether you choose a yacht, a speedboat or a simple fishing boat, you can rent our different types of vessels in order to determine what might be the best fit for you. Puerto Vallarta is the main resort destination and cruise ship port in the area, and here you can rent a boat and hire a captain to help you while away the afternoon on the clear waters of Banderas Bay. Puerto Vallarta is a bustling town with a beachside promenade featuring bars, lounges, and nightclubs, which contribute to a lively nightlife scene. If you intend to spend a few days in the area, here are a few more things to do on your Banderas Bay adventure, courtesy of Boatsetter.
Authentic Mexico in Bucerias
With sparkling water and a sandy beach that stretches for more than 16 miles, Bucerias has cobblestone streets and quaint roadside restaurants, which offer an authentic and unforgettable Mexican experience. Bucerias is not far from Puerto Vallarta so it is easy to reach and dock your boat here. It offers tremendous swimming, surfing, kitesurfing, and snorkeling possibilities. The name “Bucerias” means “place of divers”, so you are sure to see a wide range of aquatic wildlife in the area! But more than anything, Puerto Vallarta fishing offers plenty of opportunities for any type of angler so cast your line and reel in something worthwhile!
Diving and Fishing in Cabo Corrientes
Toward the south end of the bay, Cabo Corrientes is a prominent navigational landmark and the southernmost point of Banderas Bay. The area is pretty remote, so it is common for boaters to discover deserted beaches and pristine landscapes. The cape offers rich ocean water that reaches a depth of 3000 feet. Deep sea divers will love the range of options available here, and the area is also excellent for deep sea fishing, of course. You can reel in spectacular sailfish and dorado and also spend some time watching whales as you head back to shore to dock your boat.
Relaxing in Nuevo Vallarta
There’s really no end of things to do in Puerto Vallarta. A luxurious resort on the Pacific coast, Nuevo Vallarta offers long, wide, clean beaches and a well-equipped, modern marina where you can dock your boat. The marina offers free wifi and extensive security for your boat. Situated just north of Puerto Vallarta, this place offers enchanting beaches and it is just an easy day trip up the coast. On the way to Nuevo Vallarta, be sure to scan the waters of Banderas Bay for friendly dolphins and large diving turtles!
