AMAZING and GORGEOUS!!!!
Oct. 2021
First off BEST day trip sailing on the ocean!!!! Captain Juan Carlos and crew were absolutely fantastic. They all were so knowledgeable of the city and the culture of Puerto Vallarta. Food and open bar was amazing. We did not leave the hungry at all. I give this day trip a 10 out of 10. Great trip for a couple and older children who love to be on the water. Thank you again for GREAT service and fun!!!!!

Great Day for Sailing & Staff
Oct. 2021 • Couples
We really enjoy the sailing! The music and the people on the boat were awesome. Make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen as you may not be sitting under the covered area: The staff was very knowledgeable and personable. Major kudos to Cristian, Jairo and Freddie.

Luxury Day Sail
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Had a wonderful experience on the Vallarta adventures Day Sail today. The staff were very accommodating even when I became a little “sea sick”. Offered remedies to help me feel better, served an amazing appetizer of fresh made guacamole w/ tostadas (it was the best I’ve had in a long while) Lunch consisted of Japanese inspired bento box meal and a meat & cheese charcuterie board. Open bar was amazing as well. Overall we had an amazing experience, Cristian & Juan Carlos went above and beyond. I remind to check this excursion out!

Day Drinking Cruise
Jul. 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed our sailing cruise around Banderas Bay. Positives: the staff was super friendly and attentive to any request. They really went out of their way to help us have a good time. The lunch was a light selection of assorted meats/cheeses/salad/rice and a pleasant surprise as we were expecting a box lunch or some mass production meal. The bar was flowing and the staff was happy to mix up any request. The boat has four restrooms which is a big plus! We also enjoyed the fact that only around a dozen people were on the trip. Many of these excursions are a mass of humanity crammed on a boat and this was definitely not the case as we had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the trip. The only negative would be if you really want to experience sailing that is not the focus of this trip. The motor is used to efficiently get you out to a little cove for some water activities and return in a timely manner.

Good Day!
Jun. 2021
I had a great time on this little sailing adventure. The best part was getting to the destination and hanging out on the lilypad. If you need to get away for part of the day and chill, it's great! If you're looking for more of a luxury experience this is not the tour. I'd do it again!

Amazing day of fun on the water
Jun. 2021 • Couples
The crew was amazing, catering to your every need. A bit of a party boat atmosphere with the elegance of a sail boat. Snorkeling wasn't great the day we went due to ocean conditions, but that didn't stop us from having an amazing time! The photography team was fantastic as well. Normally I don't buy photos from excursions, but Eli did such an amazing job, we had to!

Beautiful relaxing day on the ocean. Our Captain Noah and Alexis were beyond exceptional. Not only did we sail, snorkel, and paddlerboard but the captain made sure to cruise us along dolphins. The food was fantastic. An outstandingly relaxing day!

Captain Carlos and Crew Julio were fantastic! We had an awesome adventure seeings whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and manta rays, and we did paddle boarding, power scuba and snorkeling. Carlos was awesome - he explained sailing and gave us great drinks and food. We can't wait to come back and bring the kids! It was a great day.
