We arrived early at Vallarta centre had a nice breakfast to start, then was allocated our boat ours was num 4 . Is a was our tour guide we went out yo the island spotted a couple of dolphins no whales. Once we hot thrre we went snorkling , the water was fine, saw lots of colourful fish, you could also do paddle boarding , kayaking rec, we was tired after our snorkling,. Then back on board for light lunch which was very good. Lots of drink. We enjoyed the margaritas. On way to a different island I spotted the tail of a humpback , then it diisappeared for a few minutes then I saw again to the left side , by the time the boat stopped it was away from us but stilll put on a tremendous show in the distance think it was a mother and calf. Amaxing made my year

My first time in Puerto Vallarta and my first time doing an activity like this and I must say, from someone will really high standards for things, this was fun and my friends and I had a blast. The trip took roughly 5-6 hours but that gave us plenty of time to enjoy the activities at hand and enjoy every moment. Especially, being on the boat with the crew members, who were awesome and very friendly. I came to like them and my friends and I enjoyed their company. Take advantage of this. Make friends out in the sun, on a boat making memories, that is what this trip is about. The best part, in my opinion, is the boat ride itself and just enjoying the company of friends, crew, and strangers. Enjoy it because when I come back, I'll be doing it again.

Know for the private beach you have to swim to the beach which is fun and literally a 20-second swim. Really close
Also, the beach sand is very rough on the feet at water level but regular once out of the water
Know for snorkeling, the water isn't crystal clear but not too hazy were you can't see anything

This tour was exceptional. Every crew member was fun, positive, professional, thoughtful, and caring. I traveled with another single mom and these guys did every possible thing they could to help us have a safe and exciting time. The weather didn't cooperate, but that didn't slow them down - they brought us blankets to be warm until the sun came out, kept our kids smiling and cheerful, and did the most amazing job. Of all the tours I've been on, this was hands down the very best. I can't thank Benjamin, Donny, Beto and the rest of the crew enough. You guys are amazing!!!

We had a great day on the boat. The service was outstanding and the crew was friendly and fun. The finally, a show put on by the staff was very entertaining.
The snorkeling could have been better. The water was not real clear and there wasn't many fish. We did see lots of humpbacks and ever witnessed 3 breaches. The captain was able to get us close to the whales but not too close that they would be affected. It was a wonderful day and I would recommend it

This was one of the best snorkelling experiences we've ever had! There were so many beautiful fish!! The day we went it was raining and stormy but even with nasty conditions the snorkelling was absolutely amazing! The water was warmer than the air! The boat ride was long, but entertaining. The food was good and staff were fantastic! They entertained us with a fabulous show! The bonus part of this trip were the whales! We say so many! Even breaching whales! It was truly spectacular! If you go to Puerto Vallarta you absolutely MUST do this trip!

we loved this. just my hubby and i and the crew was just amazing!!! the food was ok and the drinks were plenty...but the water and the views were just amazing. we found ourselves just wanting to sit in the water and rest...it was peaceful, enjoyable and quite pleasant. lots of great history shared and appreciated the crew's knowledge. a definite highlight was the crew's closing out show with lip syncing and dancing....i was bummed i ran out of storage on my phone. they were charismatic, funny, and well rehearsed. they were definitely unsung MUSIC ARTISTS as they sang songs from Prince, Bruno Mars and maybe...Elvis. I don't know...it was all a good time and i would do this AGAIN!!!

The snorkeling itself was OK we had to stay in a group which made it a bit difficult to enjoy things at your own pace. The visibility was not great and I did not see much variety of sea life. They offered standup paddle boards and kayaks, which was fun, if you didn't mind waiting in line to use them. The crew was fantastic and really made the trip for us. They were all very friendly and attentive and made sure that we were enjoying ourselves. A member of the team noticed my niece was itching she has eczema and offered her a cream to help, which I thought was so thoughtful. The performance on the way back totally made the trip!

With a few hiccups along the way, boat broke down we were offered an exceptional back up plan and upgraded tour. Food was exceptional and service on the island as well as the on the boat was superior.

The waters were murky but we still got to see fish, Birds, whales and dolphins. The boat ride out was really choppy so I got seasick along with many other people but the crew was vee accommodating and prepared. The ride back was perhaps the most fun part the crew was fun and entertaining!

I was going to rate this 4 stars because there were 100 Pesos fees that had to be paid upon arrival that I was not aware of. But, the experience was great, so I can't complain too much. You get rent kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear to check out some of the island's sea life. The water was pretty murky on the day I went, so I wasn't able to see much. Not sure if that is typical. Nevertheless, it was still a very pleasant experience. The on board breakfast and lunch was... sufficient. The staff was friendly and entertaining. I enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to others.

So the tour is not what I expected it to be, but I loved it and would highly recommend to everyone, children and adults alike.

Basically, a group of 10 hilarious people got together to put on a great show and entertain tourists. Yes, you get to go see Marietas Islands, which is pretty neat. However, the water is a bit too murky to snorkel, the sights aren't that amazing it's basically a rock..., and you no longer get to swim under the rocks to get to the hidden beach the beach is now protected. All that said, none of it really matters because that is not the purpose of the tour. Neither is the bird watching or whale watching, especially since I don't think Keven the head guide knows much about whales or birds.

Instead, you get to spend 4 hours hanging out with a really cool crew. They entertain, make everyone laugh, put on a great show, and keep an open bar where they pour you strong drinks. At some point, everyone loosens up and starts to dance, and that's when the good times really start to roll.

If it wasn't for the crew, this trip would get 2 stars. I'm giving it 5, and you will too!

Kevin and the crew on boat 5 were excellent and very happy to help in any way they could. The water was crystal clear and so warm. So many different types of fish to see. Even saw a few dolphins on the way back.Kevin did a great job explaining the birds and showing us around. Would definitely do this again. The entertainment on the way back kept us in stitches laughing. Don't know where the crew gets their energy.

This was an unbelivable experience. While the actual excursion was a lot of fun, the staff made the trip...I have never been so impressed by this level of service. Food was good, drinks were great, staff was on top of everything and very knowledgeable and it was a very well planned trip. The only downside, which has nothing to do with the company, was that they closed off touring of the beach on the island, but that was a governmental decision, so nothing could be done. I still highly recommend the experience.

Even though we did not get to see the hidden beach, this trip was SO MUCH FUN!!! Between the snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding, and bird watching, there was more than enough to do. Top that off with a nice lunch, awesome crew, the open bar, and the fantastic show the crew members put on during the trip back to shore, this is a day of fun the whole family will enjoy and remember for years to come!

I went to this trip on a Thursday and it was amazing. I took my aunt my 3yr old niece and grandma! The crew was very sweet and took well care of my grandma always made sure she was okay. Given she wasn and #39;t able to snorkel paddle board or kayak she still had a great time with the show drinks and food.
