We were fortunate to have this opportunity through our Vacation Club & I can highly recommend it to anyone who is staying in the area. Not only were we afforded a view of the most gorgeous sunset over the bay as we cruised, but after dark, the crew put on a Rock Show that rivalled the entertainment at any resort where we have vacationed. Drinks were plentiful & the crew served everyone ceviche, veggies, guacamole etc while we watched the sunset. Special shout outs to David, the MC for sharing all the information about the area & “star” of the Rock show, along with Edgar and the other 2 gentlemen who crewed the boat and created such a great evening for all of us to enjoy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunset cruise. Our captain, Jorge, was very entertaining, as was the rest of the crew. Initially there was insufficient wind to utilize the sails alone, but that changed on our way back from PV. The appetizers were very tasty and the beverages plentiful. The sunset was spectacular and we were able to take lots of pictures. All in all, an Excellent time!

My husband and I weren't sure what to expect when we booked our Sunset Sailing experience, but we had a night that we will never forget! When we first pulled up to Vallarta Adventures we were greeted by friendly staff and clean surroundings. We grabbed a couple of sodas from the snack bar and were encouraged to see the dolphins while we waited. Unreal! We hadn't even got on the boat and we were already impressed.
Once settled on the Catamaran we relaxed on the deck and were served delicious appetizers (more than we could eat!). It was peaceful and beautiful when we spotted fins in the distance. Noah, the captain turned on the motor and eased closer to the family of humpbacked whales. He proceeded to tell us all about what we were seeing - a baby playing in the sunset, the adoptive father being protective and the mother whale taking care of her little one. It was simply breathtaking. Noah's information as we watched these magnificent creations was a worship experience I will never forget. God's purpose for life extends even into the depths of the seas and I had a front row seat!

We had a fabulous time sailing with Jorge, Kelvin and Salvadore! Everything was perfect—the boat is lovely, a 46’ catamaran and these three made sure we were happy, serving cocktails, a surprising lovely platter of hits d’oeurves and entertaining us with stories. The sunset (of course) was stunning and we seemed to be suspended in time. I would highly recommend this lovely, peaceful cruise!!

This was by far my favorite excursion we had done over our two week honeymoon. Our friends had gotten it for us through Puerto Vallarta Adventures as a gift and we had never sailed before.

The check in was easy to find on the dock and the staff were great. They showed us the way to the boat and we met our crew Noah, Angel, and Ruben. Noah was the captain with a lot of knowledge on the ocean and sailing and was fun to talk with. Angel took pictures of everyone for them while sailing and Ruben was a great bartender!

The food provided was a great bento box with a charcuterie board. It was wonderful and so were the drinks!

Highly recommend for anyone, especially couples as you get a great view of the sunset and it’s very romantic. We will definitely be doing this again whenever we get the chance to come back!

Warning, Warning, Warning. Do not book ahead for any Vallarta Adventures. They promise 100% refund if cancelled 48 hours or more. What they don’t tell you is the refund isn’t processed for up to one year from the booking date. Criminal and signs of a business failure.

Hi Ken, Allow us to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the duration of the refund process. We promise a 100% refund and have every intention of keeping our word to our clients. We have been forced to change our reimbursement process due to the unprecedented situation that we all face, and in over 25 years of business have never had to make decisions as difficult as these. We kindly ask that you reach out to us at info@vallarta-adventures.com to discuss the details of your refund. Sincerely, Vallarta Adventures.

Sunset sailing in PVR with Vallarta Adventures was outstanding . First rate staff of Noah the captain , Lilu , JJ and Victor. Once we were seated on the catamaran we were served drinks and appetizers. The boat capacity is very limited so you never feel like you are fighting for service. Our first trip to PVR and this was the best part . The sunsets were outstanding and combined with the Team on the boat and landslide was worth every penny. As a reference we do a lot of traveling and have done these type of excursions and this was in the top 3.

We did the sunset cruise last night and it was absolutely amazing.
The service from Jorge, Chava and Kelvin was First class from the minute we stepped on board. From non stop drinks service to a lovely sharing platter for me and my wife. Chava was really personable chatting about his experiences and you can see how much he enjoys his job.
Would recommend to anyone. Worth every penny.

And the icing on top of the cake. We got to Vallarta Adventures about 50 mins early with the hope of catching a glimpse of a dolphin.
We was welcomed in to the observation area and was allowed to play with the dolphins for a good 15 mins. Pouring water on them and throwing toys for them to play with

The tour started off great! Nice, roomy, comfortable catamaran, crew was great, weather, although cloudy and a little cool, was nice. We sat in the back for reasons of comfort and convenience and the four of us were having a wonderful time with three others we had met on the boat!
Then, a smoker showed up and, much to all of our surprise and chagrin, was allowed to smoke within a few feet of us, and was even given an ashtray by a crew member! No one, smoker or crew, asked if it was okay with us! Then another showed up, then another, then yet another! They didn’t come back, have a smoke and leave....they sat literally a few feet away and puffed for the whole sail! One of whom, I’m certain, was chain smoking one after the other!
So, while we were having cocktails, hors d’ouerves and visiting, second hand smoke would intermittently waft through our group...it was disgusting!
So, although boat, crew, food and drinks were all very good, an evening event that we were all looking forward to for so long was completely ruined.
If Vallarta Adventures policy is to allow smokers and smoking to infringe on the comfort and health of the other guests, then I am sad to say I can NOT recommend this tour and would, in fact recommend you STAY AWAY....unless you’re a smoker!

As a company, we welcome the opportunity to learn and improve. With that in mind, we are happy to inform immediate actions will be taken to designate more smoke-free areas for our guests. Hoping to make this up to you, would you mind sharing your email address or writing to us at info@vallarta-adventures.com? It's really nice to know the crew, food and drinks were all very good. Once again, thank you for your time and visit. We hope to hear from you soon! Best regards,

An enjoyable experience with the excellent crew of Captain Jorge. Pleasant and relaxing with beautiful views and a spectacular sunset. At $95 a person a bit expensive given the disappointing quality of the food and average cocktails.
