Highly recommended Serafin who works at Charly’s. He spent time with us talking through our options and helped us book some great trips. He really goes above and beyond to ensure you have a great time. Even when one of the larger companies tried to charge extra on something Charly’s stepped up. We made sure they did not loose out as they didn’t deserve to be caught out either and we told the large company to repay them. Thank you Serafin for great vacation trips!!

We booked the 3-for-2 package from Serafin, who didn’t use high pressure sales like many places. We were warned not to book through the big corporates, I recommend you listen to their advice and get yourself a great adventure (or three)!

Their team went above and beyond on several occasions including resolving our dispute with Vallarta Adventures, and made sure we got some great memories on our vacation.

5+ stars, thanks guys, Feliz Navidad!

First time we used Charly's. Jose (left handed) was our captain and Undress was our deck hand. What a great duo! Very professional and went over and beyond to make our trip fun and memorable. Lots of fish caught and lots of fun had. We can hardly wait to come back.

I've used Charly's services multiple times over the past few years. He is very responsive and great to work with. I've chartered boats for deep sea fishing and whale watching and in every case the boats and the crew of the boats have been fantastic. They are my "go to" for any fishing or boating charter in PV. You'll be glad you contacted them.

Many people were looking at booking a cruise through out the harbor through many of the companies offered at the hotels but after talking to Omar at Charly's I decided to put together a chart of myself and took a group of 18 people out on a trimaran for 6 hours period was not only less expensive but it was a lot of fun and brought a lot of the couples together who we hardly knew. Omar was very professional and explained all of the details and fees for the Excursion. Lunch was provided as well as drinks and lunch consisted of nachos and salsa as well as red Marlin Seviche and sandwiches on baguettes. The crew was amazing and we got to go swimming and then ended up following several whales which were breaching and they had not seen this type of activity in a long time. All in all it was an amazing trip for the crew and all of us on the boat. I would highly recommend Charly's before any other hotel booking agency. Ask for Omar he's very professional speaks great English and will give you your best bang for your buck. Will be back in February and looking forward to arranging another tour with Charlys.

Thank you for your kind words, our sales team at Charly`s always strive to do our best, I am very glad everything went well with your catamaran adventure. Your group was very lucky to have witnessed the whales in this area during this time period.

I look forward to assisting you in organizing in the near future another great and memorable adventure in our little piece of paradise called Puerto Vallarta.
