Balandra Bay Private Snorkeling Trip

The bay of Balandra and its white sandy beaches have become famous around the world and are a natural protected site. What makes it special is that it is accessible by boat in 30 minutes and on the way there we have spotted uncountable dolphins friendly whales, turtles, and devil rays. In winter we take you to one of the small rocky islands, where you can see great blue herons nest inside a galloping cactus! There is a small sea lion colony with its own coral reef and over 7 different beaches to be explored. This is the perfect trip for everyone:  a family that wants to spend little time on the boat and more exploring, animal lovers, dedicated bird watchers, or a romantic couple that would enjoy a photoshoot in the turqoise blue waters.
