  • I went with my family to take a tour to ARCOS, ÁNIMAS Y QUIMIXTO with this company. First of all, they use the SARAPE boat which is very poor quality (recommend that you see reviews about the SARAPE B...  more »
  • Perfect way to spend a day! The boat trip was awesome and the crew was so incredibly accommodating and over the top with service! Trip includes breakfast yogurt/sandwich/juice. After a 30-minute stop ...  more »
  • We took the trip to Yelapa for the day. The staff on the boat were amazing! They were attentive and kind, and they kept us laughing all day. We went on another tour with a different company and loved ...  more »
  • Absolutely fabulous time and the crew really add to the ambience with their creative ways of interacting w others. The games were a blast. I felt like they all went over the top to ensure all passengers had an excellent time. The island was breathtaking. We hiked to see a waterfall. I highly recommend getting fresh coconut at top. The food and service was fabulous. We ordered a passion fruit margarita and it's the best 9 US dollars you'll ever spend. Remember Vallarta by Boat a little bit of Heaven.
  • Not really recommendable in terms of value for money. Staff is friendly and willing to help. Doesn't compensate for pinworms in the included food we were served at las animas beach though
  • If you like being confused, crowded & herded around like cattle, this is the tour for you. Otherwise save your money....or bring enough for a water taxi back after you spend an hour waiting in line in sweltering heat to get off the boat to go to the crappy beach. All the bad reviews are true! Just wish I had saw them first.....
  • We just happened to find this tour online and booked it just a few days in advance and what a stroke of luck. The tour was mostly Mexicans but very international with other Americans, Cubans and numerous other countries. The crew is OUTSTANDING. They are hilarious and do all kinds of slap stick, dancing and jokes. We had 11 family members go including my 73 year old mom and everyone had a fantastic fine. The food is excellent, service is fantastic, the Marietas islands were gorgeous and the open bar and dancing on the way back to the marina from the islands was so memorable. We were so lucky to see about 7 whales! I would highly recommend this tour if you want a real authentic experience not just being with 80 other americans in Mexico.
  • Our tour was for Yelapa/Majuhitas. The crew was fun. The drinks were fine not great, but kept coming. Don't expect first class amenities but you will have some fun. The continental breakfast food on boat was less than great, granola yogurt and some fruit. The snorkeling was good, but be aware that if you lose any part of the gear you're gonna owe them $500pesos! The hike to the waterfall is free but if you wanna ride a horse it's $400 pesos extra per person. The beach/town is beautiful. Lunch on beach lacks organization but food was good. Drinks on beach are not included with lunch. Saw some whales on the way back and captain doubled back for a better view. Crew: Lazaro, Claudia (photographer) Herber, Pedro and Mauricio. Fun people We paid: 1400 pesos for 2 people which is not a bad price for 8 hours of entertainment.
