What you'll do

For your experience, we will meet at Paddle Zone: our shop located seven-miles south of Puerto Vallarta on Mismaloya Beach. First we will introduce you to the water with an introductory safety lesson on your preferred equipment. Then we'll hop on our boards and/or kayaks and paddle about 20-30 minutes from Mismaloya Beach to Los Arcos Marine Park. Imagine gazing over the Pacific ocean as golden light reflects back onto the rocky cliff faces of Los Arcos National Marine Park. Thousands of endemic birds who have nested there suddenly take flight and circle high into the sky above you. We share information and stories of this magical place you are visiting, as well as fresh water and an energy bar for nourishment. And after dusk, you'll look down from the star filled sky to see that the waters have come alive—you’ve been gifted a chance to observe bioluminescent waters around the sea caves and grottos of Los Arcos. Once we've wrapped up our time at the park, we'll make our way back to shore to relax and enjoy some refreshments, while you have a chance to check out the photos we took on the water. Our Sunset Session and Sunrise session is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed. Please note: the different times on the experiences offer the best time to observe the bioluminescence. WE OFFER THE SUNRISE & SUNSET SESSION EVERY DAY IF IS NOT AVAILABLE JUST LET ME KNOW!

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 our surf shop on Mismaloya Beach. And during the trip, we will visit and explore the islets of Los Arcos by paddle board or by kayak.
