I got home from PV today and this tour company is amazing. Our group of 7 thirtysomethings did both the Outdoor Adventure and Rythyms of the Night. Both were simply AMAZING!!
Every tour guide and staff member we dealt with were awesome. They were friendly and helpful.

The outdoor adventure was so amazing. Ziplining, watersliding, rapelling, a boat ride across the ocean and can't forget the mule ride up the mountain. The guides were awesome, they made the adventure more exicting and fun. They are very good a what they do and they keep you laughing even when you are scared to death of flying off a cliff.

The Rythyms of the night was fantastic as well. The meal was one of the best we had and the show is just amazing. The setting is beautiful and the crew on the ship keeps you very entertained on the entire journey across the sea.

One little tip about Vallarta adventures is that you should show up early for your tour. While you are waiting they have an observation area where you can watch the dolphins at the one marina and at the other marina they have dolphins, sealions, parrots etc. This is all free and the trainers and staff are more than happy to give you information you need.

All in all a WONDERFUL option for tours in Puerto Vallarta

Our family recently took in the Extreme Adventure. We had an 11 and 15 year old with us. We all had a great time but our girls especially thought it was awesome. Our guides, Yaz, Berto, Luigi, Hugo, Crawford, and others whose names escape us, were fantastic and made the experience fun, enjoyable and comfortable. They were knowledgable and experienced and made us all feel safe and confident in them, the equipment and our own ability. The zip lining, Tarzan swing and repelling were so fun. The options for those who didn't feel capable of doing the ladders were appreciated. The Superman zip line was a highlight. The All Terrains were OK. It was a short ride, but a warning, you will likely get muddy so don't wear your best clothes. Overall it was such a fantastic experience.
A word of advice. Don't just take your bug spray but WEAR it. Your belongings will be locked up just before you leave to the Canopy and then it's too late to get your bug spray in your pack. We did get some bites, that after a week still itch. Also you do not need to bring a change of shoes for the waterslide as they are removed and do not get wet. It will lighten your pack when you take your change of clothes. You also do not need your camera as it is not allowed on this excersion
The photographer did a great job.
If you have the time we recommend you take advantage of the online discount and get your free excersion by booking 3. If you don't want to do 3 then you may be able to find a better price at your resort.
Thanks for the great memories!

We went on a larger boat several years ago, and felt like we were never anywhere near the whales. This time we decided to go on a Zodiac so hopefully there would be more maneuverability than the previous experience. The experience was better this time; there was a large pod of whales only 2-3 miles out and we followed them for some time. Unfortunately, there was still quite a distance between our boat and the whales. Some of the other boats were closer to the whales and they seemed to be having a better encounter. The issue is that there are laws (which are good) about the distance you can be from the whales and some of the boats were not compliant with the law. So that led to a better experience for their passengers, but more danger to the whales. Later we went in search of a smaller pod that had an "active" calf. The baby whales was breaching and doing some fun acrobatics for us and that was a lot of fun to see. There are no facilities on the boat, but if you monitor your intake before and during the trip, three hours should be no problem.

Excellent staff, good experience the entire sail, gourmet bento box canapés, open bar with quality drinks, clean and comfortable boat.

We chose this as our comp tour while staying at Velas Vallarta.

Staff were anxious to please and offer information. We saw many whales and enjoyed the sunset.

We have been on many excursions in Puerto Vallarta and this was by far a favorite.

We were blown away by the amazing staff on the two Vallarta Adventures we did! The whale watching excursion exceeded our expectations; we saw SO many whales!! And the knowledgable staff did a great job on the bird watching tour at Marietas island. We were so pleased with everything we look forward to using Vallarta Adventures again in the future.
