The brand St. Regis has always remained synonymous to luxury for modern connoisseurs who desire the finest expressions of bespoke service. Now, sitting along the coast of Mexico the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort has introduced a signature 70-foot luxury motor yacht for cruising Puerto Vallarta’s lovely Banderas Bay. Guests can take advantage of six packages with a full day, half day or sunset cruise on the luxuriously appointed yacht. A little adventure, lots of luxury, each experience will be unique: from whale watching and secluded anchorages to an on-board chef and state-of-the-art technology, and beyond.
A Dull Day Experiences costs from $4,250 for eight hours and up to eight guests. For a South Bay Spectacular, guests will cruise south along Puerto Vallarta’s spectacular coastline with stunning views of the famous Los Arcos and Mismaloya, and experience a sea life exploration adventure. Depending on the season, charter clients are likely to see whales, dolphin pods, sea turtles, manta rays and a variety of tropical fish. For a Las Marietas Island Exploration, guests can choose to discover Banderas Bay’s unique Marietas Island Marine Reserve, a secluded scattering of islands off the Shore of Punta Mita offering some of the most abundant sea life in the Mexican Riviera, where they can anchor among the Marietas Islands to explore the secrets of their many coves.
Half Day Experiences costs from $3,450 for five hours and up to eight guests, offering guests a shorter version of the Las Marietas Island Exploration. Alternatively they can discover Punta Mita with a breathtaking tour of Puerto Vallarta’s northern Banderas Bay, searching for sea life while enjoying the sights and sounds of Riviera Nayarit. The adventure continues as the yacht is anchored off Punta Mita’s spectacular coastline and the staff serves a light gourmet lunch. Guests may then opt to “siesta” on one of the yacht’s sumptuous decks or take the wave runner out for a spin before heading back to the marina while enjoying desserts and libations. For a Marine Life Exploration or Sunset Cruise, rates start from $2,650 for three hours and up to eight guests. Itineraries include a Marine Life Exploration where guests can soak up the sun while searching North Shore coves and coastline for Banderas Bay sea life, including hump-back whales during whale season (December through March) or take a Sunset Cruise over the majestic Sierra Madre Mountain Range while gliding along the lovely waters of the Banderas Bay.
