Trip Advisor Honors Huatulco with the #6 position on its 2010 List of Top 10 Beach & Sun Destinations in the World.TripAdvisor
Huatulco stretches 22 miles along nine bays between the Coyula and Copalita rivers. It lies about 300 miles east of Acapulo, but there are no bunched-up high-rise hotel strips to mar the scenery, just soft sands, clear ocean, striking cliffs and dense forest.New York Times
What better way to visit the many bays of Huatulco than on a stunning 42" cabin cruiser yacht. This Huatulco yacht tour allows you to casually cruise the Mexican coast line while taking in the gorgeous scenery. Complete with crew, this luxurious yacht tour truly gives you an A list experience.
This lavish tour costs $120 dollars an hour with a minimum reservation of 5 hours. However it's recommended that you go for around 6-7 hours to give yourself enough time to explore all the bays at a leisurely pace.
The boat includes space to fit 12 people comfortably, with plenty of seating on the upper and lower decks as well as a spot to soak up some rays on the front sundeck. Other features of the yacht include; Canopy coverage to protect you from the sun, fishing gear (upon request), a small kitchen, and restroom.
The gorgeous coastline and sparkling waters offer the perfect backdrop for those of you who are looking to do some fishing. The yacht is able to drop the lines in at any time and either head out to deep sea fish for marlin or sailfish, or just troll the coast line for tuna and other local catches.
If you're lucky enough to reel one in, the on board crew will fillet the fish right there on the boat and give you a bite of the freshest sashimi you will ever taste!
**those that would like to do some fishing must provide 24 hours notice to the tour group**
The tour begins in the Santa Cruz harbor, it is here where you and your guests will board the chartered yacht. As you depart you will quickly come upon el faro (Spanish for lighthouse) which overlooks Entrega beach on one side and Organo Bay on the other.
Located on the protruding coastline next to Organo bay, this site offers a little something extra...thanks to the repeated impact of the water crashing into the rocks, a blowhole was formed that spews water as the waves collide with the coast. The captain will pull up alongside the blowhole to give you some great photo opps here.
Continuing on, you will come to Maguey bay, typically once here, the captain will drop anchor to give you an opportunity to explore if you wish to do so. While here you should grab a bite to eat at Ay Caray, a beach front restaurant offering outstanding seafood and ice cold drinks.
Located directly beside Maguey bay is, the previously mentioned, Organo Bay. This protected bay offers excellent swimming and snorkeling conditions. If snorkeling interests you, be sure to bring your own equipment.
Another great location for snorkeling is Cacaluta bay, the next stop on this yachting adventure. This bay is part of the ecological reserve and houses a vide array of vegetation and wildlife, with pristine beaches for you to enjoy.
Carrying on, you will travel to Chachacual bay, also a part of the eco reserve, this bay is home to the renowned beach, La India.
Another interesting fact about Chachacual bay is every year more than 100 000 sea turtles travel here to lay their eggs. An amazing natural phenomenon.
Finally, you will be taken to the well known tourist spot, San Agustin. You will quickly notice that this area is far more developed than the other bays you've encountered on your tour.
Here you can hop of the boat and venture into one of the many palapa style restaurants to enjoy a full meal, and/or some refreshing drinks before returning to the Santa Cruz harbor.
It should be noted that Huatulco's waters are not for the faint of heart, the waters out at sea are always rough. For this reason, if you are prone to sea sickness invest in the patches that go behind your ear, which must be purchased before you head to Huatulco.
You can find them at local pharmacies in the United States and Canada. They are one of the only motion sickness remedies that do not cause drowsiness or other unwanted side effects. They will quickly become a life saver.
Booking this amazing yacht tour can be done at My Huatulco Vacation. There is only one yacht of this size, so it is highly recommended that you book as far in advance as possible.
Overall, this Huatulco yacht tour is an outstanding way to view the surrounding bays. The majestic waters and breathtaking beaches make this five-star tour something that is truly worth your while.

This protruding rock face offers more than one attraction. First of all the amazing lighthouse or "el Faro" acts as a guiding light for those entering the harbor. And secondly, the repeated impact of the water crashing into the rocks has created a blowhole, so that every time the water makes impact it spews it several meters into the air.
As you leave the lighthouse and blowhole, you will turn the corner into Maguey, it is here where the captain will typically drop anchor and allow you to do some exploring.
As you can see, Maguey bay includes some minor developments; however, it is still relatively barren. While here you should make a point to check out Ay Caray! a palapa style restaurant offering the freshest seafood you can imagine.
You may ask the captain to stop the boat and allow you to do some fishing; if you're lucky, you may even catch one! Those that would like to fish, must give the tour company 24 hours notice so they can arrange the fishing gear.
As you continue the yacht tour, you will come upon "faces in the rocks". An amazing natural occurrence where the rocks naturally formed to look like a face looking back at you. **see if you can spot it, centered in the photo**
