10X better then Expected!
Oct 2021 • Family
We had the absolute best time. These guys and gals give their all and make it a fun time. At first you have life jackets for when you stop and go snorkeling but after your pretty free of things. Just apply sunblock and have a blast! Definitely let them take those amazing pictures because they are amazing photographers and worth the little they charge 10X over. The waterfall is less of a hike and more of a uphill stroll through the beautiful town of yelapa. Bring some Pesos so you can support the community, give a tip and have some coconut water/ beer :) right on the beach. On the way home the party really starts, hopefully you get a group that likes to dance like ours did. I wanna thank the crew again for an amazing time xo

Fun in the Sun Yelapa & Majahuitas
Sep 2021 • Family
We started from Nuevo Vallarta before picking up the Puerto Vallarta folks. The registering process and boarding was top notch. Our crew that was directed by Chai was awesome: Omar, Allan, Alejandro and our bartender Alexis were so great, profesional, helpful and friendly. Also Captain Jaime, his mate Elder, and the photography crew added so much fun and value to our adventure. Not only was the service superb, the actual stops were as well. On our excursion day the waterfall was beautiful, the water clear for snorkeling and the beach at majahuitas was perfect. From any tour we have ever taken this one ranks no.1 or pretty close to it and the folks that made it happen were a big part of it.

Day trip to Yelapa
Sep 2021
We didn't go to the waterfall because the tour host made it sound like a somewhat difficult hike. We found out later that it really wasn't that bad. I would suggest going on that hike. We spent the time at the beach relaxing and enjoying some food and drinks from the small cafe there. The cafe is not included in the cost of the excursion so you pay for everything there. On the way back, we stopped for short time to snorkel which we didn't do. We stayed on the boat to have some lunch and drinks. The lunch is cold cuts, pasta salad, etc. which I was fine with. They don't really have any way to serve hot food on the boat. We stopped one more time at a private beach to relax and there were banana boat rides. It started to rain so we didn't stay there long. The boat ride is fun. The crew is very nice and they make both trips fun.

Great day in Puerto Vallarta
Sep 2021 • Couples
Really enjoyed this excursion while on our Carnival cruise. The weather was not the best the day we were there but that didn’t matter. The guides were amazing and made this one of the best excursions we have done on a cruise. They finished off the day with the crew show that just completed the day perfectly. Plenty of drinks to be had throughout the day and the included sandwiches were very tasty. Thanks guides for a great day!

Great way to experience PV outside of the city
Such a fun way to explore PV! The check in process was very straightforward and it was easy to find where we needed to go. The one miscommunication was not bringing the proper shoes for a brief jungle walk, so I recommend bringing a towel and tevas and extra pesos for sure. The staff was so friendly, fun and hardworking and made the adventure so memorable for us. We were served fresh pineapple juice upon boarding the boat and were offered our own snorkels for $5pp USD in light of COVID. We had about 30 people on our shared ferry/boat. Our first stop was snorkeling at Majahuitas. The visibly was really poor, but it was a perfect day so we floated around and then swam to shore to hangout on the beach club, grab some beers and Aqua Fresca and paddle board around the ship. The music was so fun and there were lots of photographers around to capture you living your best life. Be weary of the bees! They smell the lunch on the boat and the fresh juice and came out in DROVES maybe 200+. Once the boat started going they mostly flew away. Then we had lunch on the boat while we drove to Yelapa. They provided delicious torta bread with some sandwich fixings and sides. Nothing mind blowing but good to fuel up. When we arrived to Yelapa, you could either walk 10 minutes to the waterfall or take a horse for $450 pesos or ATV. Be sure to buy a coconut at the waterfall! So pretty. Afterwards, we took a small boat to the opposite shore and hung out on chaise chairs at a beach club. I got a frozen margarita (not included in ticket cost), and hung out in the water. Be careful of the iguana guys, don’t accept it unless you are willing to pay! We walked back to the boat and had many delicious tropical drinks on the way back to the dock. The staff put on a hilarious musical impersonation show and it had us all cracking up. Be sure to tip big, these guys are working so hard! Awesome experience and would highly recommend.

Good activities (not food & drinks though)
Aug 2021
Pros:
The snorkeling was better than I expected. I caught a few glimpses of a spotted eagle ray and even saw some bioluminescent creatures. Yelapa was a great. And the trip to the waterfall was a great little walk. However, the peddlers were a bit too much once on the beach. Majhuitas was fun too. The banana boat rides were a blast.

Cons:
Drinks are included, but the water is tap water and the ice looked suspect as well. The sodas are hot, so if you are concerned at all about traveler's dysentery, either drink hot soda, beer or make sure you bring drinks with you.
The lunch is premade sandwiches, so if that doesn't work for you, make sure you have snacks or some food.

All in all, it is a great trip, especially if you are more interested in the activities than the food and drink.

Overall, fairly disappointing experience.
The whole experience seemed very rushed at times. I used to work in entertainment for cruise ships, so I understand the nature of the business, but it felt as if we were just being shuttled from one set of vendors to another. And it’s advertised as a “snorkeling” tour. Requiring the wearing of life jackets and only providing masks and not fins is not snorkeling in my opinion, it’s just floating on top of the water trying in vain to see things on the bottom. Lastly, the constant music was played so incredibly loud that it was literally painful. I had one pair of earplugs that I gave to my friend, and I spent most of the time with my fingers in my ears. The noise was excruciating. All in all, fairly disappointing. In the future I would probably pay more to set up a similar excursion privately so I could have more control over the time and destination and do some proper snorkeling without a life jacket and with a mask and fins and not have ridiculously loud music blasting in my ears the entire time. On the positive side, the crew were all very good natured and friendly, and the break dancer was excellent. And the waterfall itself was really enjoyable.
