We have rented and purchased SUP boards from Adam and his crew at Punta de Mita and Bucerias. We have shopped around and they have the best prices around. They have a variety of Surfech boards, both for beginners through advanced paddlers.

The rentals in Punta de Mita are HALF as much as they are from the hotels, so journey down the beach and rent from them instead!

Adam, Vero and Felix are all around great people! I was a first time paddler and I couldn't have found better people to show me the ropes. They truly want everyone to have a great experience and feel comfortable! If you are looking for an awesome experience pacific paddle can't be beat!

The team at Pacific Paddle makes sure that everyone has a great time on the water no matter what their paddling experience is. Let Adam help you put together your itinerary -- he knows the best days and times to visit lots of beautiful spots in the bay. The equipment is top-rate, the instruction is personalized for each paddler, and the hospitality is fabulous, just like hanging out with a group of fun friends. Guides are very knowledgable about the the ocean and the PV area and can spot all sorts of wildlife for you in the air and the sea. They take care of all the essentials like snacks, photos, etc. -- just bring your sunscreen and a hat, and an adventurous attitude!

This was our best trip to date in the Puerto Vallarta area which was largely due to the outstanding professionalism of the crew at Pacific Paddle. Although we did not get to paddle with Adam himself we were well taken care of by Horacio and Felix. We have given Felix a new name... "The Whale Whisperer". We paddled with the Humpback Whales and listened to them sing for over half an hour which will stay with us for ever. We paddled around one of the Marietas Islands and explored several caves and crevasses as well as checking out all the Blue Footed Booby's, Yellow Footed Booby's and many other birds that make these islands there home. We also saw whales and dolphins while taking the boat ride to the islands. These guys are so professional and yet fun to hang with, we made some new friends and will be back for sure. On a scale of 1-10 Pacific Paddle would score a 12. Thanks Guys, see you next year ;)

When we set out on the SUP safari to Los Arcos with Adam and Felix, we had no idea just what we were in for. This isn't your typical "canned adventure"--if you are looking for a guaranteed top notch excursion, you definitely want to go for this one. In addition to the knowledgeable instruction and a fabulous afternoon paddling around Los Arcos as promised, we were treated to humpback whales swimming around, underneath and beside us, as well as sea turtles, giant manta rays, and tropical fish. As if these adventures alone weren't enough to make this a priceless experience, on the return trip we did some deep sea fishing and spotted many more humpbacks, and toasted the successful day with a few ice cold beers! We were first-time paddlers and mastered paddling within a few minutes--it really is for every ability and age. To top it off, Adam is also a skilled photographer and managed to capture every spectacular moment of our day. We own a home in PV and have been on several adventure excursions over the years, but THIS is the experience our ten-year old son is still talking about.
