The agreed price was $260, I paid $115 for reservation. When we got there, the captain said he doesn't know the person who made reservation for us, and asked for additional $350 on top of the $115, and told us about this after we got on the boat. How can you know that we are coming if you don't know... More

He offered to provide all the equipment, including wetsuits and two tanks each. He also dove with us, showing us different areas...then he caught lunch, and made the most spectacular fresh ceviche...

We booked our snorkel excursion to Las Marietas with Vallarta Explore via email contact and it couldn't have been easier. This is a smaller company that gives attention to details. If you are looking for a personal touch, a small boat with 2 guides that holds up to 10 people this is for you. If you are looking for a... More

We also found this boat from meeting Juan on the beach at the Marriott. We wanted to go to Yelapa and he explained that it would be quite an undertaking by trying to go via water taxis. So we took the leap and booked the boat for the 6 of us ladies. And it couldn't have turned out better. Samy... More

We found this charter panga boat from a hawker on the beach at the Marriott and quite frankly didn't know what to expect. After checking their Facebook page we took a chance. Our day exceeded our expectations in every way. We had planned to go snorkling at Los Arcos for four hours and ended up spending six hours with Captain... More

This is it! The most friendly crew that will take you on a laid back boat ride you will never forget. Very authentic and easy going. We started at 9AM in marina los Peines and 1st went to Los Arcos for snorkeling. There is always good snorkeling at Los Arcos and when you arrive early it is not packed, well... More
