Great sights and entertainment!

Great tour. The group is very helpful and entertaining. I would recommend this tour for everyone. It may seem like a long tour but it’s not. There’s so much to do that time flies by. The waterfall is an amazing sight! And the food at Marlin was fantastic!

They gave us the wrong time to depart!! Our email said to arrive at 8am at Puerto Magico.
They told us to arrive at Puerto Magico at 8am in the confirmation email. They explained that only on Tuesday the boat leave earlier and they made a mistake. We asked for a refund they said they will send us an email confirming the refund. We have received nothing. Our tour was supposed to be on 11/16/21.

Pedro and Boat #8 - Top Rate!
Pedro and the crew in Boat #8 are the stars of the day! Right from the first welcome as we boarded, their warmth, humor and outstanding customer service had us grinning from ear to ear! This is a fun-filled afternoon with cool adventures guided by a great crew of guys who take great care of every detail for each passenger while also serving up belly laughs and comedy routines! They really work hard to make sure you to have a great day, and they are complete pros. 5 STARS!!

Beautiful Adventure
Oct 2021
his was a gorgeous excursion with A LOT of exercise. If you are looking to just relax for the day then this may not be the excursion for you although you do have the option of staying on the boat and not doing the adventure part. The boat ride over to Yelapa is fun, scenic, and leisurely. We had a beautiful weather day and were able to see everything in the brilliant sun. The hike to the waterfall is about 20 minutes and it is very hot and humid so dress accordingly. The hike is on a cobblestone path so no rock climbing to speak of. There is a gauntlet of people selling their wares so bring money. The pool at the base of the waterfall is a cool refreshing treat after the hot hike. The waterfall is worth all of the sweat! Now the hike to the restaurant on the beach in Yelapa is quite an adventure. It takes another 20-30 minutes all around town onto a sandy beach through a very sandy river that is a foot to 2 foot deep and really tries to grab your shoes. At this point it has probably been awhile since you have eaten or drank anything so it is extra tiring. The tour guide says you have about 30 minutes at the restaurant but it is a Mexican 30 minutes which was more like an hour plus. Order food from the restaurant!! It is very inexpensive, they take credit cards, it is so delicious we gobbled every bite and you definitely have time to sit and eat before hiking the rest of the way down the beach to the boat. The lunch on the boat, while free, is really just pasta salad and hoagies so go ahead and have the authentic Mexican at the restaurant! The snorkeling at Majahuitas was nice but very crowded - we did see a spotted eagle ray and an eel along with the tropical fish, but just soooo many people it is hard to maneuver. It is about a half smile swim from where the boat drops to snorkel and where the beach is - so more exercise. Lastly the boat has to dock about 100ft off the beach so you need to follow a tow rope to climb back on board. The crew is amazing and such fun and there is definitely plenty of booze for the taking if that is your thing. Overall this is a great adventure but it is also very tiring so keep that in mind when picking the day you want to do this!

Not our style
We had less than hour to snorkel on a seven-hour-plus excursion. Definitely more of a booze cruise. Volume of music was mind-numbing.

Beauty and Fun!
Oct 2021
A great day out on Banderas Bay. The south coast of Banderas Bay is hard to reach except by boat, so we snorkeled at a secluded bay, and I finally (after five previous trips to PV) made it to Yelapa.

Rustic hillside town with a beautiful beach and bay and a short hike to a waterfall. The fresh water dip was nicely refreshing on a hot day, and it was a bit of a comedy show watching all the people maneuvering on slippery rocks to take their photos. After the hike we relaxed on the beach until we had to go. We seriously thought about staying longer because it was so relaxing and beautiful and we could have taken a water taxi.

But we did get back on the boat, and the crew had a great and entertaining show on the way back so we were glad we returned with them.

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.
