Expensive compared to experience at Bahamas Atlantis - the problem here too is no posted rate so you're never sure! Kids enjoyed the dolphin swim and the animal handlers were exceptional. Pictures afterward are very expensive too!

We went on the Marietta's Tour at Vallarta Adventures. The tour offered snorkeling, kayaking, bird watching, and more. We were taken to the Marietta's on a large catamaran. It took about an hour to reach the islands. We were then allowed to swim/snorkel to the marietta's. After about a half hour, we relocated to another island near by. Once again, you could snorkel, kayak or hang out on the beach. They also offered bird watching tours on a smaller boat that followed us. If you're not a strong swimmer you are able to stay on the catamaran while activities are taking place.

The tour offered a small continental breakfast in the morning after checking in. There was fruit, cereal, bread, etc. Lunch was also included which was still very simple but good considering it's being served on the boat. They offered sub sandwiched with a handful of toppings and pasta salad.

The crew was incredible. The had a small introduction/show on our way to the islands and a really fun show on the way back. Everyone was very helpful, FUN and professional.

I would definitely recommend Vallarta Adventures!

Our family of 5 (3 teens included!) did the extreme adventure tour through Vallarta Adventures in Nuevo Vallarta last week. It was a blast! Our guide Rick, along with helpers Chemo, Paula and Cesar were amazing - they were fun and made the trip so memorable and safe. Make this tour a definate must if you are visiting the area!!

This tour was amazing! The guides were all extremely friendly and made sure that every need was taken care of. Cris, Tommy, Nelly, Marino, and Jorge are the tour guides I highly recommend. They were so much fun! I'm sure all of the guides are great but if you get them consider yourself lucky! The location was beautiful! With each zip line there was something new such as going double, repelling down a waterfall, zip lining into a natural pool, or even going down waterslides. I have never had so much fun on a tour before. Even the ride up to the zip lines was fun! Out of everything to do in Puerto Vallarta this is a MUST!

We may have been late in the season, but our Marine Biologist "Nikki" from Australia no less, was a fortunate blessing for the group! What a wonderful knowledgeable person to guide us around Banderas Bay as she explained so many points of interest of the Humpback. She has been in many parts of the world following the humpback for many years.Her tour was educational and entertaining. The amount of whales have diminished by late March, yet we saw at least 6, know that the two days prior, 19 and 20 had been sighted. Whales are enormous and beautiful to photograph. This is a must do experience no matter your age.
