We booked Isabella II for a 4-hour trip and Jose and the crew were super amazing with us. We were lucky that in that day, the weather was nice and no wind which allowed us to move freely around the boat without falling overboard caused by the waves. I am definitely recommending Mike's to anybody that wants to enjoy - at least for a few hours - what boating in luxury is all about.

We booked a 4 hour charter and snorkeling trip for seven adults on a the Nicole 38' boat through an agent at our hotel. We were all dissatisfied with the experience for a number of reasons. Upon arriving at the marina, they switched boats on us and had us board their 42' Karina II boat. This boat was older then Joe Biden, and looked like it the SS Minnow recovered from Gilligan's Island, and should have been retired 10 years ago. I don't know where to start, so I'll just say that one of the boats engines was spewing black diesel smoke for the entire trip. Because of this the driver was driving the boat very slow. We kept asking him to speed up but he wouldn't. We later learned that he was purposely driving very slow to avoid creating a bigger cloud of black diesel smoke. Some of us had headaches from the smoke. The snorkeling gear looked like it was just purchased from the Walmart's kids section, with much of the equipment not matched between mask and snorkel. Instead of having normal floatation vest for snorkeling, they gave us old emergency life vests which are poorly suited for snorkeling. The bathroom was disgusting, and none of our three four female would touch it. The crew aboard were more concerned with getting us photos so that we would purchase their photo service package. We fought for a credit, but hey, this is Mexico and we had to prepay. So, it's good luck getting your money back. Give them a deposit, and pay a final after you receive the services if you charter with these guys.

Had a blast!! Food was good, drinks flowed, music played, facilities were clean, and the staff were great!! We got closer to the whales than I expected. I didn’t even need my binoculars. The sandal I busted while dancing was even repaired thanks to Riki and Roberto!!! If I’m even in Puerto Vallarta again, I’d hit the seas with them.

For our first full day in Puerto Vallarta on 12-28-20, I wanted to organize a fun boat trip to start the week with all of our friends, many who came from all corners of the country. Ricki and his crew facilitated an absolutely magical day at sea for myself and dozens of friends from my LGBT family. Our boat arrived to the Los Muertos Pier (as requested) right on time, and it was easy to take the panga boats to our 90ft. Canuwa catamaran and leave the bay on schedule. The boat was in brand-new condition, our DJ equipment was set up and working correctly as expected, and helpful staff were ready to serve us from an open bar and a large selection of appetizers and other assorted tasty bites. Ricki and Captain Joger William were very flexible with our requests mid-trip to go whale watching, to stop for lunch at Mike's Beach Club (which was included in our per person cost), and to skip the snorkeling excursion we thought we originally wanted to do. I really appreciated how Ricki and the crew allowed us to change our minds about activities during the trip, depending on what we felt like doing in the moment. At the last possible minute, we even held a wedding ceremony onboard! Ricki is a fantastic public speaker and great at keeping any audience entertained. Overall, the six-hour excursion was even better than how I envisioned it. Throughout the rest of the week, many people come up to me and told me what a great time they had, and how it was the perfect start to their New Year's vacation. Whether you are organizing a wedding, a birthday celebration, or just a get-together of any size with friends... you must contact Mike's Charters & Tours and ask for Ricki and his crew. I have many friends traveling to Puerto Vallarta in 2021, and I will absolutely tell all of them to use this group for their sea excursion needs.
