The Extreme Zip Line Adventure has a zip line nearly 4,000 feet long running through a tropical forest and includes off-road rides through the forest, a hillside water slide and suspended walkways. The Marietas Eco Discovery takes place on a group of volcanic islands known as the Marietas Islands. The islands and surrounding water are host to numerous wildlife species, including seasonal humpback whales and year-round dolphins. The program has several activity components included, such as snorkeling in the bay, kayaking and guided tours showcasing area wildlife.

Sea lion programs include Sea Lion Encounter, Sea Lion Encounter at Las Caletas and Sea Lion Dive in Las Caletas, the latter giving scuba divers the chance to swim with trained sea lions. Sea Safari has horseback rides through the Sierra Madre mountains, snorkeling through reefs and visits to the village of Pizota. This hidden community has beaches and several fine restaurants on site.

Whale-watching tours take place during the seasonal whale visits between mid-December to the end of March. Additional information is available at Vallarta Adventures' official website.
