Our instructor, Cynthia, and our boat driver, Rafael were amazing to work with! They were extremely knowledgeable about the fishies, wild life, and towns around us! They made us feel extremely safe the entire time. They even took pictures of us on our phones, free of charge! Most other adventure companies would charge for that. I really appreciated the knowledge and the professionalism of both of them. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking to explore Yelapa and snorkel to see colorful fish! We even saw a huge sea turtle! 10/10!

The tour was really fun. Went with my wife and we really enjoyed ourselves. Especially at the tequila tasting. The guide was really nice, knowledgeable and really helped in making sure the entire group had a good time. Doesn’t matter what age you are, because by the end of the tequila tasting you’ll be having a good time. I highly recommend that people book this activity when coming to Puerto Vallarta.

Joana was a great guide. She was pleasant, knowledgeable and always concerned with everyone's well being. The other people taking the tour were fun and exchanged information on where they had been. The food was great. The experience was one that needed to be repeated again and again.
