Boat trip@ Puerto Vallarta (Part 9)

By in Travel

Here comes the highlight of the trip! Boat riding to secluded beaches! Away from the commercialized tourism! The bottom two pictures are obviously not mine as I’m in them…haha~

The entire gang splited into two groups this day: the surfing team and private beach team. It just so happen all married couples are on the surfing team, so a lot of us switched over immediately. 14 of us rented two boats to sail out to the ocean to wherever we want. There’re packaged big ferry tours too but they seems too lame, you’re scheduled the entire day and have to suffer regular tourists. There’re sooo many dolphins. I even spot a Man Ray up~

These rocks are diving/snorking site! The boat drivers told us that normally the water is so clear that we can see the bottom of the ocean. Our gang at the other boat was a little closer to the rock. When they dived to ocean, strong waves rush them toward the rock…and there are lots of jellyfish tehre. Some people get minor sting, they all swam toward us in horror…

I did get a bit seasick…as the little boat could get quite rocky. Later I learned to stand up all the way which helps.

There are also these packaged big ferries tour that’d take you to many destination whole day. But they’d be like “tour”, all scheduled and bunch of old people and families on them…bad idea. Two people from our gang can speaks ok-Spanish, so we could bargain with the boat people.

    hehe I’m like the kind least associate with beach and swimwear…I didn’t have one at all so I had to buy one just for this trip. But it’s winter season so I can hardly find one. I found one at last at beach side store (more $$$). The water is quite…’muddy’ ^^;;; I saw some very pretty yellow tropical fishes but that’s it. After we got back on boat, it was then we saw these pigeon pooping nearby the area we were just in, they shoot poop like a machine gun…so gross!!! (shudder to think that those water has been in my mouth…)
