This was such a great experience! The crew was professional and very friendly. The boat wasn’t overcrowded but had folks we could chat with throughout the experience. Comfortable mats to sit/lay on while on the boat, saw tons of fish while snorkeling. The beach was really cute and impeccably clean! Banana boat was really fun, also had paddle boards. Very generous on the drinks, and the food was yummy also! Highly recommend for couples or groups of adults.

Family of five with older daughters had an absolutely lovely day. The private beach with facilities was an unexpected bonus. I like that the group is limited to 40 so not super crowded
This ride was incredible...
Ashley_M, May 2023
This ride was incredible ! The staff is a much fun and really engaging. I got a little sick on the boat and they were so helpful and sweet about it. The island is gorgeous. Snorkeling is so much fun ! I had an amazing time with my group of friends. I highly recommend this if you’re visiting
Awesome, amazing and beautiful experience
Corrina_C, May 2023
We had the best time!! the yacht was beautiful and i didnt get sick. The hosts were amazing and the beach they took us to was also beautiful. The snorkeling wasnt that great for me,,, i am not a strong swimmer so that was fun but a struggle for me. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it though. Also it was not a lot of people on the boat, maybe 15 people. Overall i will book again. This was my favorite activity out of all the tours we did. We all enjoyed it and had so much fun
Danielle_T, Apr 2023
We had a great time! Love the snorkeling! Lunch was great, we had Cerviche! Angel was amazing, he made our mother/daughter trip great!
Too expensive for services offered
Nadine_L, Apr 2023
Crew was amazing! Disappointed with the snorkeling and island experience. The food offered on this trip was minimal. Other trips we considered for less money offered a full meal. Not worth the price paid.
Great time. Would recommend
Joseph_F, Apr 2023
Great time. Water conditions for snorkeling weren’t the best but certainly wasn’t the tour guide’s fault. Food was great. Crew members were very friendly and entertaining. Noah and friends kept everyone engaged
Fun way to see PV!
Catherine_P, Mar 2023
Great time with super hosts. Don’t question this trip - just book it. Fun snorkeling followed by a nice beach break and banana boating. Lunch is the best I have had on a boat.
Worth it!
Jason_K, Mar 2023
Great adventure- great food, island, and scenery. Can’t go wrong with this choice! Fun with the family!
Very Fun Outing You Will love
Ann_M, Mar 2023
This was such a fun tour !! Our host was Noah and he and the crew were so energetic and they were excellent hosts !! They were the most important part of the trip because they set such a fun tone. The catamaran ride was awesome and we saw several whales …who doesn’t want to be on a boat on the water, right ??!! The hosts were so hospitable and the drinks and food were excellent and they were continually offering and refilling drinks and serving food. It was also a great way to meet some new people and it was just fun :)
Penelope_T, Mar 2023
Very safe and professional service, had a wonderful time and it was all age groups so that was a plus since we are in our 50s. Food and drink were top notch.
A fun adventure
Roy_W, Mar 2023
Overall, we had a pretty good time. The yacht was about what I expected based on the pictures. The crew and our primary guide (Danny) were really nice and took great care of us. The ride to each stop was nice and relaxing — nice music playing and drinks flowing as advertised. The snorkeling was good, although visibility wasn't the best because the water was a little murky and filled with little harmless jelly fish (I'm sure this freaked some people out). Our guide found a puffer fish and we were able to touch it which was really cool. The private beach stop was pretty interesting and unique. We stopped there for an hour but the time flew by. It would be nice to spend a little more time there. It also would have been nice if there were more games and activities there as well. You should note that you have to swim from the yacht to the beach. It wasn't too far, but some people struggled with because of the waves. There was corn hole but he bags were pretty much empty. The included lunch was more like a charcuterie board snack but it tasted pretty good.
Catamaran cruise and snorkeling
Steven_A, Feb 2023
We had a great time. The crew was wonderful and very attentive. We saw a lot of ocean wildlife including whales, dolphins, and a Sea Lion who came aboard for us to get a picture with! Daniel was our main guide and he was wonderful!
Great day on the water

Alexis_B, Nov 2022
Danny and his crew were the best! They were attentive and helpful the entire trip! Highly recommend this experience as you also get to stop at a private beach for some water activities! Highly recommend!
Do this one!! You won’t regret it!!
Keri_A, Oct 2022
This was worth every penny!! I’m a single, 37 yr old female traveling to Mexico on my first solo trip..and this was my first solo excursion. I will tell you, DO THIS EXCURSION!! The boat ride was great, they served us a snack on the way out, we snorkeled, then they took us to an amazing private beach (explore the island…the bathrooms, little jungle swing..it’s so cool!) **bring a waterproof box (target) to hold your camera cause you have to swim to the island. Then we got back on the boat and headed back to the main island while we had a high level lunch!! Oh, and the sea lion 🙌🏽🙌🏽Totally unexpected, but amazing!! The crew was absolutely fabulous..and if it helps, I’ve been sober for 4 years and although you definitely could have endless drinks, they never once made me feel weird about ordering bottomless waters and Diet Pepsi🥰 amazing staff (bring some money to tip the boys at the end!) I would do this one again, any day!!
Simply loveleh

Lacy_G, Sep 2022
Snorkeling and seeing all the amazing colored fish was a blast. The water was clear and warm and the beach was beautiful! The staff was fun and amazing and catered to our every need!

Amanda_S, Sep 2022
The beach they took us too was very rocky, unlimited drinks, boat add a surprise animal greet us, food that was offered was okay, can paddle boat and ride banana boat but wasn’t at the boat for a long time
JeanYves_A, Aug 2022
This Is By Far In The Top 3, Best Experience I Had In My Life. Truly Truly Amazing. The Crew Was There To Take Care Of Our Every Needs. The Beach We Had To Swim Too Was Gorgeous. Will Recommend & Will Book Again. You Guys Keep Them Polaroïd Safe 📸😁
Great time
Jamil_O, Aug 2022
Great time, great people, highly recommend. The beach it takes you to is nice with fun memorable excursions.
An awesome experience!
Emma_S, Aug 2022
This experience was phenomenal. I came on this for my bachelorette party with 7 other girls. We took over the top part of the yacht. Once on the boat, safety talk is given and then drink orders taken. We sailed around for a bit and then went to a rocky area for snorkeling. It was beautiful and the crew was very helpful and accommodating in getting everyone prepared for snorkeling. After snorkeling, we went to a private -ish island were there was a bar and lots of cute island decorations and couches. Then back to the dock. Guacamole and chips were served first thing and then appetizers after the island. No complaints at all.
Excellent experience.
Igor_M, Aug 2022
Travelled on August 11th as a family of 4 and friends family (total 8 people). Daniel and his crew did an amazing job. We had so much fun. Everything was organized very well. Thank you chicos for a great day out in the ocean 👍👍👍👍👍
A great experience
Andrea_S, Aug 2022
My two teenage kids had tons of fun. The best part was the snorkeling. The photographer was great and took tons of photos. The food and drinks were good. The staff was amazing.
Tonya_W, Jul 2022
This is an amazing excursion!!! One of the best I have ever been on. Shout out to our crew who made our trip even more fun and memorable; Captain Juan Carlos and his crew Miguel, Miguelito, Alejandro and Chris. Truly the best excursion available and TOTALLY worth the money!!
Great experience but rushed
Colleen_K, Jul 2022
I really enjoyed this experience overall. Super grateful that our boat didn’t have too many guests. It was just my husband and I and one other family of four. We were very comfortable. Service was very generous. We got the photo package, and I’m so grateful for the creative and thoughtful photography. We didn’t do a lot of snorkeling. The water was a bit cloudy, but we went during rainy season. The beach that we had access too was pretty amazing, but our time there was too brief hence the rating. We felt rushed to start lunch and didn’t get to enjoy the paddle board or the floating island. It felt like an hour was taken off our trip, and that bothered me. After all, it was my birthday.
Great experience!
Gabor_M, Jul 2022
The staff at Vallarta Adventures was fantastic and made the whole experience worthwhile! Everything was spot-on! Thank you!
Wonderful experience overall!
Laura_F, Jun 2022
The crew was very fun and helpful, our daughter was scared of the ocean and they made her feel safe and comfortable. The boat was very comfortable as well!
Luxury Snorkeling
Hope_C, May 2022
There were some good and bad parts of this trip. The crew was amazing and were very attentive. We loved the snack on the way back. Downside was the snorkeling was short, you can’t see much, and the jellyfish were BAD. We all got on shore covered in very itchy stings. The excursion said it was from 8-2 but we didn’t board until 8:30 and got back at 1:15. So overall not great for the money we spent.
