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.
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.
