We really enjoyed this tour. We started with a safety seminar that including an overview of the wildlife we might see during the tour. Many of the pictures show were drawings made by the owners daughter - beautiful and priceless! We headed out to the Hovercraft and headed up river from the beachfront. The driver/naturalist was very competent and professional.... More

My husband and I took the tour in January 2010 during our second trip to PV. It was unlike any other tour we have done in PV and would highly recommend. They are passionate about what they do, the environment and making sure you have a good time. Talking with the local fisherman and families was a highlight. Make sure... More

Took the morning tour on 3/23. We learned so much as they are very concerned with PV environmental issues. The walking tour and the fishing demonstration are great, but the Hovercraft ride itself is a "must do". We saw lots of crocs and other wildlife. It was great fun. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I can't believe how much fun the hovercraft is! We were skimming over the mud, and spinning in circles over the water. We saw crocs that must have been 16 feet long, and the birds were just swarming over us. Truly a fantastic trip!

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks in Puerto Vallarta. The one tour I wanted to do this year was the Hover Craft Tour. We were not disappointed in the tour. The Hover Craft ride was like nothing we have experienced before. Although the ride is exciting, nobody should be intimidated about going on the Hover Craft. The... More

took the Hovercraft tour Jan. 27/10 and loved it! Took us up stream from the mouth of Ameca river and we experienced wild life the whole way. Saw tons of birds and some Crocs as well as local fisherman. Had a blast!

The tour was a great way to spend the afternoon with your family. The staff is incredibly friendly and very well educated on the eco-system of Puerto Vallarta's treasures. First we went through a guided tour where we learned about the Mangroves and it's influence on the beach we enjoy. Then we headed through a fisherman's village (one of the... More

We found the ad for this adventure in the Vallarta Lifestyle Magazine, checked with the Concierge at the Marriott Casa Magna but they had no information, so look around and review the magazines to find this ad. My 13 y.o. grandson and I went and had a very fun and exciting adventure. We saw crocodiles and so many exotic birds!... More
