Snorkeling in Tehuamixtle

Snorkeling in Tehuamixtle

Hooligan Adventures recently discovered a hidden snorkeling gem just over an hour south of Puerto Vallarta, in the quaint little fishing village of Tehuamixtle (pronounced TAY-wah-MISHt-lay), or shortened to “Tehua” by the locals. The bay offers good protection from ocean swells, and the sandy beach is soft and gentle on your feet. Swimming here is very pleasant as the water is clear, calm and warm.

As soon as you wade in to a few feet of water you are quickly surrounded by hundreds of fish, and swimming out just 20 or 30 feet you will find plenty of rocks and coral that is teeming with sea life.

40 yards from the shore there is a sunken fishing boat that makes for a very intriguing place to snorkel.  Just a little further beyond the wreck, fishing boats moor to buoys on the north side of the bay. Beneath each of the boats hundreds of fish huddle for safety, shielding them from hungry birds diving from above.

This tiny little bay is an exquisite slice of heaven for snorkeling, or just hanging out on the beach and enjoying one of the many restaurants that are serving up fresh ceviche and delicious margaritas. Hooligan Adventures is picking Tehuamixtle as their #1 Snorkeling Adventure Destination. We are very excited to sail the Hooligan down for future tours.

The very funky, affordable and comfortable “El Rinconcito” Hotel is just a 5 minute drive away in Mayto.  Hooligan Adventures would love to bring you to Tehuamixtle for a snorkeling adventure that you will never forget.

Tranquility on Tap

What a wonderful Wednesday sunset cruise it was as the Hooligan motored out in to the bay and within 15 minutes was surrounded by a pod of 7 or more whales that were feeding and teaching their babies how to breach.  We quickly cut the engine motor and then raised the main sail so that we could cruise around silently, and were pleasantly surprised shortly after as a pod of dolphins approached the boat in curiosity and playfulness.

The sunset turned out to be quite spectacular as the extravagant cloud formations inspired our imaginations to find infinitely intriguing designs and shapes within them until the sun finally set beyond the horizon, which was pleasantly peppered with misty sprays of dolphins and whales across the bay.  Just before we dropped the main sail and prepared to head back to port, we saw something floating on the starboard of the boat, and as we got closer to inspect, a friendly fin raised out of the water to wave us on by.  A happily bobbing old tortoise was out for a leisurely evening swim and just wanted to say hello before it took a deep breath and dived deep down below.

The Hooligan then fired up her engine as Patrona Dana motored her back into the marina, and we closed out another beautiful afternoon cruise with a brilliantly colorful dusk behind us, and smiles from cheek to cheek on everyone’s faces.

Cruising with Dolphins


Come aboard the Hooligan and get within almost touching distance to pods of playful dolphins in the Bay of Banderas!  This is the time of year and there are hundreds of dolphins cruising around the bay, from Puerto Vallarta to Yelapa, across to La Cruz and all the way up to Punta de Mita.  Every day is a great day out on the water, just take a look at our latest video where we came across a pod of over 100 dolphins that swam all around the boat and some of them even swam ahead of us for quite a distance.

Imagine cruising along on the front perched lookout seat of the Hooligan while the dolphins weave and dive just beneath your feet as they tilt their heads up to look right into your eyes!  Book your tour today and jump aboard the Hooligan for a private tour on our comfortable sailboat.  Whether you want to head out first thing in the day to fill your hearts delight with sightings of whales, dolphins, turtles and rays, or if you would prefer to set out in the afternoon to enjoy a breathtaking sunset, we have you covered.
