Captain Sam and Mate Eric were terrific. Worked the entire trip on baiting our rods and helping us reel in the many fish we caught. The fresh from the sea Bonita ceviche was delicious. Well maintained, spotlessly clean boat. Would recommend not more than 4 people fishing at one time, although the boat can easily hold more. Best time for fishing is a 7am departure from dock.

I hoped I might see just one whale! We got to see a whale love story. The girl slaps the water with her fin... the boy answers by slapping his tail. Thank you, captain Ariel! It was an amazing experience.

We had never been to Puerto Vallarta before and we came in on a Holland America Ship with just one day to spend there. We arranged a special tour with the captain's wife Celene. Basically, we were promised whale watching, snorkeling, fishing on the boat, snacks and a shore lunch. A big promise, delivered in a big way! If you are coming in on a cruise, you can meet this boat in less then 3 minutes or a $5. a cab ride to the private dock. They are super easy to find. When you do get there, you will be treated like family

As a surprise they made fresh guac served with chips on the boat. Later they also cut up melon. They found whales everywhere! They took us snorkeling in the Puerto Vallarta underwater national park. They respected the sea and the sea creatures and provide a natural and peaceful visit with the whales.

Captain Ariel is a treasure trove of knowledge when it comes to fish. The boat is clean and you can tell he takes great pride in his work. If you are looking for that one special highlight in your vacation- this is it.

Captain Ariel and Sammy were excellent guides. They treated us as family and made the day enjoyable!! They helped us catch a lot of fish and took us to a restaurant where they cooked our fish over an open fire. Best fish and seafood I have ever had. This was one of the most enjoyable days of my vacation and I highly recommend using them as guides and I will use them again!! Can’t wait to see them again.

I have now fished with Ariel multiple times. He is a great Captain and knows were the fish are. We have landed many fish on Calypso.Some really nice fish.
We communicate well prior to visit and the trip is always Awesome.
Ariel is well known around the community and fishing community. Fishing is seasonal and he knows the best trips for the time of year.
Whether a fishing or snorkeling trip Ariel is the Best.

We had a perfect day!!! Just how we wanted it. Whale watching with a little fishing. We caught our fish that was prepared perfectly several different ways for us at La Peska La Cruz Marina Yacht Club. Ariel and his crew always shows us a good time and are willing to cater the trip to our wants.

Puerto Vallarta, Boat Trip,
Bahia Allegra,
We Took this trip on 25-01-2022, Avoid at all costs, All these people cared about was fleecing you form the moment you enter the boat.
The Onboard Photographer just harass you all the time,
After a mere 20 minute snorkel , we were taken to an Island where we were again pestered to take rides etc.
The Drinks were very expensive, as was everything else.
But Worryingly was the complete lack of safety, no mention of life jackets .
1 Tourist had an accident on the boat and the crew were completely uncaring
and offered no assistance.
Also on the Island 1 Boy was on a paragliding experience ( a child !!).
He almost hit a tree upon landing.

Avoid !!!

My wife and I had the most amazing day fishing, snorkeling, eating our fish in Yelapa cooked at a local restaurant and overall just having a memorable time. We can't wait to come back to PV and do it all over again someday. Sammy and Eric are the best!

We had so much fun with Sammy and Ariel. We did a fishing trip and ride to Yelapa. We will 100% do this trip again when we return to PV. If you love sushi, definitely make it a point to catch some slapjack tuna as the restaurant in Yelapa will cut it into sashimi and serve it up for you fresh out of the ocean. You will never find better.

No better way to spend New Years Eve than on the water with these guys! We did a 6 hour fishing/whale watching trip and it was priceless! We had so much fun. The guys were fantastic! The fresh Ceviche they prepared for us was to die for 🐠. Thank you Calypso, my family had a blast. Highly recommend these folks.

Imagine standing in the middle of the boat as you try to watch your friend reel in a fish as you simultaneously watch whales! It was an exciting and surreal experience.

Captain Ariel runs a clean, professional boat and was knowledgeable and very patient with us as he put us on both great sport fish and humpback whales. We even enjoyed some of our freshly caught fish for lunch, as we jumped up to grab lines and bring in some large Crevalle Jacks to add to our bonitas, green jacks and Spanish mackeral.

I also took back a valuable piece of advice from Capt. Ariel, "Relax and enjoy the fish".

You won't regret booking with them! We did the 6 hour tour.
