Fernado and Fernando were wonderful! Excellent service and vast knowledge of the area - we had the best time exploring the south shore with them. We saw whales, dolphins and loved snorkeling Los Arcos. 10/10 would recommend!
Absolutely a great excursion at the right price. The boat is not flashy but the service is well beyond! This was such a personal, fun tour that met our every desire. You will be very happy with this trip, we sure were! Thanks Fernando and Jorge!
My sisters and our daughters, 6 of us booked this trip which was the best day of our cruise. We had the best captain Fernando and crew Jorge! Our own private day trip down the coast of Vallarta with time to snorkel at Loa Arcos. They provide all your snorkel gear and booze the entire trip. Fernando and Jorge made sure our day was amazing. The lunch superb best coconut shrimp ever (lunch is additional cost) but beyond awesome. You can't go wrong with this tour. He will pick up and drop off at the cruise port. We paid 25.00 for a taxi to start the cruise however if he had known he would have picked us up at the port. I highly recommend this tour!
Jorge and Fernando were excellent. They knew lots of history of Puerto Vallarta and the boat and sight seeing were excellent. They took there time and made sure we had an excellent time. They kept our drinks full and we would definitely recommend this tour.
We took this tour over Christmas and it was wonderful. Highly recommend! Great way to see a different perspective of Puerto Vallarta. Lovely views of the coast. GREAT snorkeling!
7 ladies on a girls trip and we were very well taken care of. Our guide was fantastic. We would absolutely recommend this boat trip!
Great experience! My family had an exceptional time with Captain Fernando and Titus. We celebrated my father's 70th Birthday with this special boat ride. My father who is not an adventurous person had a great time and could not say enough about how attentive Fernando and Titus were ensuring my mom and dad were taken care of at all times. The boat ride takes you along the coast line, along the downtown area, romantic zone and south passed the beautiful homes and condos. We then traveled to Los Arcos where we snokeled with Titus seeing a beautiful array of fish, Titus found some starfish too. After snorkeling we were off to Los Animas beach for a superb lunch. After lunch we had time for a walk along the beautiful beach, some shopping and great people watching.
On the way back to Marina Vallarta we relaxed to good music and my sister looking out for whales. Captain Fernando made it his mission to find a whale, just when we thought our chase was over a baby whale jumped out of the water. a spectacular sight! We then stopped to watch the mama whale and baby whale swim together for 20 minutes or so, watching the baby whale jump out of the water 4 more times.
From there it was time to get back to Marina Vallarta where we had to say goodbye to Fernando and Titus, both are true gentlemen!
I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting a new adventure with two great guides.
Thank you La Vida Bella private boat tours for an amazing time!
Had an excellent day - the crew was awesome. Highly recommend :)
Great crew with a good and safe boat. They were always on top of our needs and comfort. The tour was very complete and even with some surprises. When we stopped at the Las Animas beach for lunch they stayed near to make sure we were safe.
Our group had an amazing day on our trip to Boca de Tomatlan and a casual return trip. The boat was quite large enough for the six of us and the crew and the service was outstanding. The captain was an experienced boatsman and his helper was very conscientious about any need we may have had. La Vida Bella is a boat I can highly recommend.
