Ever was our guide and he was an absolute blast! He was extremely friendly, explained everything fully, allowed for questions and even let us make decisions on what we were doing (I.e. swim more or see if we could find sea life) He explained history of the National Park and pointed out the amazing animals we came across. My husband and I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone wanting to have a great time, with a possibility of seeing some incredible sea life and little history included. Thank you so much!!

I'm flying, Jack!
Cami_A, Sep 2023
Great fun tearing about on the ocean on jet skis! The whole group wore big smiles from start to finish. Our guide was hilarious and committed to both safety and a great time. Because of the multiple rivers that empty into the ocean near PV, you must expect brackish water for snorkeling, this is not the crystal Caribe that you might have snorkeled before...that said, we saw some amazingly huge parrot fish, a sea turtle, a lionfish, a puffer fish, and a multitude of small swimmers!
Best Jet Ski Experience
Eric_M, Aug 2023
I strongly suggest you jet ski while in Puerto Vallarta it was the best experience. The distance you will travel to enjoy the jet ski is amazing. Ever, the tour guide, was the best. He explained what is required in the simplest form. When I do return to Vallarta I will definitely jet ski with them again
Alexandra_C, Aug 2023
We LOVED this experience. I had gone jet skiing in Cabo in the past, and you just kind of go in circles near the start point for your alotted time, and this was SO much better. It was an amazing way to see the coastline. Saw a lot of turtles. Evar was an awesome guide, and his partner even tried to retrieve my fallen sunglasses. So nice. Would absolutely do again and recommend to others!
Jet Skiing with Dolphins 🐬
Clare_L, Aug 2023
It was our first time riding jet ski and was pretty scary at first. But it was overall great experience as we got to see a pod of dolphins swimming around our jetski!!! It was such a surreal experience. *** You are forced to learn fast but it's doable.
Awesome ride , many hours!

Gio was an awesome guide. This is a nice long ride across the bay. Our two twenty year old sons, my wife and myself had a blast!

raul_c, Jul 2023
Not worth the price at all. Would not recommend at all. Felt rushed through out the trip. Definitely would not be returning to do this
Book the excursion!
Cecelia_A, Jul 2023
This was the highlight of our trip! It was our first time jet skiing and Ever explained things clearly and made us comfortable. The tour was great, we felt safe, and by the end felt like jet ski experts.
A fantastic first that will not be our last!
Allison_G, Jun 2023
Ever was such an amazing host and guide through the Bahia de Banderas! Neither my 68-year-old mother nor I had ever ridden a jet ski before, but by the end agreed that we would definitely want to do this again. Ever was clear on how to safely operate the jet skis before we ever left the dock, and ensured we were comfortable with the speed and maneuverability. We took an awesome scenic route out to Los Arcos, saw sea turtles, tiny coves and caves, and even pointed out high-up birds' nests on the rocks. Snorkeling was fantastic in the clear water around the rocks, and we saw a sea turtle and many varied schools of fish! On our return trip, we went further out into the water and he taught us how to maneuver a bit more and get even more comfortable in controlling the jet skis. By the end, I was happy to catch a little air over waves and pull some tight 360s. My mom even managed the slowest 360 known to man, but she did it! 10/10 would recommend to friends or family staying in the area!
This tour is great!
Jason_G, Jun 2023
We have done this tour twice! We will do it again. Ever is a rockstar! Go early in the morning while the bay is smooth. That much more fun!
Great fun for all kids, teens and adults
Erika_R, Jun 2023
Everyone had a really good time. We did not snorkel but just played on the jet skis and they let us drive fast and mess around so it was a lot of fun.

Amy_G, May 2023
The jet skis were fun. Go early in the day when the sea is most calm. Be prepared to go fast! It’s harder with a passenger because you can’t stand up to absorb the shock. Overall a good experience!
Fun Fun loved it
Bernard_A, Mar 2023
The instructor showed me how to work the jetski and towed me out of parts of the harbour. After that I drove. When he knew I could handle the jetski we put on speed after we left the harbour. We went allover banderas bay including the nature reserve. I saw 3 Wales one was breaching again and again. We were moving sometimes max speed. I loved it The instructor Evers let me have a bit of fon on my own while he watched. He went far beyond what I was expecting. Again 5 stars
Fun filled day!!!
tharine_w, Mar 2023
Ever was a great guide! We had a blast! The jet skis were newer and could really go fast!! It was a fun filled day! The office staff was great and got us out and on the water quickly. I would definitely recommend this tour!!!
Highly recommended!!!
Bridget_H, Mar 2023
Such a fun experience! Jet skis were top quality and FAST. Our guide Evar was great with a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend! Would 100# do again if back in PV! Great dining place in Marina also!
Fun and exciting way to spend an afternoon
JB_B, Feb 2023
We went on a jet ski tour with Evar as an activity for when our cruise got to PV. We arrived a little late, but Wendy from the Eco Explorer home office was so easy to work with and were flexible with the timing. The jet ski safari was SO MUCH more fun than any excursion the cruise line could put together. We realized most excursions are really just an excuse to get you somewhere to spend more money on gifts or whatever. So glad we went off Viator and found this. Evar was awesome, he took us up close to national parks, took us to play with dolphins, and in general let us have a good time on the jet skis. The jet skis were top of the line, ran smooth, and were FAST, the safari itself was a good 90+ minutes, but time flew by because it was so much fun. Totally worth it, you'll be glad you went!
Beware!! Don't book it if you are on a ship cruise!!!
Michelle_J, Feb 2023
We did not go on this excursion as the ship's time was not the same as the local time. This time difference was not shared with us prior to the excursion or during the many emails sent back and forth between myself and Wendy (tour operator). We were contacted by Wendy a week or so before the excursion and was informed the tour company needed to cancel, that there would be no tour the day we originally booked and offered another day. I explained we would only be in port on that day and to go ahead and cancel the tour. Miraculously, the tour was still on!! I told Wendy multiple times, when I tried to cancel the excursion, that I didn't think we could make the 1:30 slot. She assured me there would be NO problem and gladly accepted my money. Well, we didn't make it due to the time difference and they kept my $290.00 as we were considered a no show. I also reached out to Viator, who we originally booked the excursion through, of the issue and they were no help. They called Wendy and spoke to her and she said we were a no show (which we actually weren't) and would not assist us in getting our money back. I recommend you make sure the company you are dealing with, is on the same time zone as the ship's time you are on. We have never experienced this issue with any other private tour in all of our 13 cruises, including Alaska and the Mediterranean.
Lots if fun!

Awesome experience! Senor Ever was a great host! We even got up close and personal with some whales while we were jet skiing. Almost like getting 2 excursions in one!
Great experience!!!

Amazing ride across the bay. Got to play around on jet ski and saw lots of fish while snorkeling. Second time with the company and did not disappoint.

Our tour guide, Ever (I hope I remembered his name right) was phenomenal. Incredibly knowledgeable about the area. Felt comfortable under his guidance on the jet skis. Super fun excursion ! Highly recommend!
A wild ride
