Enjoy breathtaking displays of color during a magical sunset at sea

As the sun sets into the horizon, it often creates breathtaking displays of color. This is a perfect, romantic ending to a beautiful day in "Paradise".

What a better way to end a day than on a boat with friends or family and a beautiful sunset?

Just sit back and relax while enjoying snacks and beverages. Be on the lookout for resident dolphins, turtles, manta rays (and whales in season).

Enjoy this 3 and a half hour Sunset Cruise as you watch the sun set on the horizon from Bahia de Banderas. Departing from either one of the 3 marinas in Bahia de Banderas, this cruise includes a brief narrated tour of the area. Enjoy time with friends or a romantic evening with someone special.
