“Sail and Snorkel Fiesta was great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Our family with two boys (9, 10) loved this experience. We went in late November and the weather was warm and the water clear. Fun for all of us! Mom and Dad especially enjoyed the open bar after the snorkel! A great cruising tour around Land's End with a fun and engaging crew. Had a great time. Also noticed that our boat was by far the nicest of all the tour boats in the area. Much bigger with room for a dance party!

Overall, great fun, nice crew, worth the experience. This is a relatively new thing to try out so I was excited to check it out. When I asked one of our guides whether flyboarding was safe, he replied "I think so. We just got this equipment two weeks ago". NBD. It took me about 10 or so minutes to figure out how to flyboard but after a couple of tries, I was able to finally get out of the water and levitate. We had a group of 6, and each person spent about 30 minutes flyboarding.

The main reason I'm leaving a review of 3 out of 5 is because of the hassle we got for wanting to use our own cameras. We had a gopro and our own phones, but some of the crew insisted these weren't allowed. I would have liked to know that before booking the experience and how much photos from the Vallarta Adventures crew cost. I'm all for paying a fair price and making sure these guys get paid, but the hassle of arguing to take a few pics with my own phone and then haggling over how much we wanted to pay for the crew's photos, extra if we wanted them on a flash drive, etc. didn't make for as fun experience as it could have been.

I'll tell my friends flyboarding was a lot of fun, but to make sure photos are allowed.

Hello Vitaliy D, thank you for your comments. We feel really sorry to hear that your experience wasn't fully satisfactory. We improved our photo policy and keep to keep it very clear in our check-in and our website for this reason. There is always the chance that someone can loose the camera / phone while on the boat and we cannot the risk neither the responsibility of it. That is why we bring a professional photographer on the boat to capture this amazing moments for our customers.

Thanks again for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon.

“Great time!”

Had an OFF Road Adventure, which was a great experience. Miranda and Gaby were very knowledgeable and so enthusiastic. It was pure joy! Also had Sunset Sailing, what a wonderful way to spend an evening, so beautiful and peaceful. Thank you for great time!
