Full description
Depart from Puerto Vallarta and set off on a boat cruise towards the tropical paradise coves of Yelapa and Majahuitas. Admire the picturesque coastal scenery, where dolphin encounters and humpback whale sightings (in winter) are common occurrences.  Make your first stop at the breathtaking shores of Majahuitas Cove. With its untouched sandy beach and crystal clear water, it's the perfect hideaway for a day of snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking with an expert guide. Accessible only by boat, Majahuitas Cove features spectacular marine wildlife protected from the human hustle and bustle of nearby Puerto Vallarta. Enjoy the opportunity to snorkel here with all equipment included by the crew. Then, head over to Yelapa, which offers another incredible option for a scenic beach retreat. Nestled in a stunning natural cove, this tiny community is free of any roads and surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. This tour gives you the opportunity to relax on Yelapa beach and explore the surrounding area, where stunning tropical wildlife and a hidden Yelapa waterfall lay just minutes from the shore. Stroll through the charming fishing village to the cascading, Cola de Caballo waterfalls and jump into the refreshing water, or simply sit and enjoy the natural beauty. Browse through the native artisan handicrafts along the way, then kick-back in the sun at Yelapa's expansive beach where the river streams into the ocean, surrounded by an incomparable green mountains landscape. Whether you hike to the waterfalls, snorkel, or bury your toes in the sand, you’ll be struck by the idyllic beauty of these tropical retreats. As you cruise back to Puerto Vallarta with an open bar and onboard fiesta, wrap up a perfect day with some great music, dancing, and unforgettable entertainment provided onboard.

Loved this trip! Was not sure what to expect and they did not tell us ahead of time what the plan was. 1st island you have a choice of snorkeling first or going straight to the island to do whatever you want ie. kayak, banana boat, order drinks, lounge, explore. Second island options: to hike to a waterfall first or hang at a different beach with shopping and a restaurant. The waterfall was AMAZING! and refreshing with a little bar to order drinks. I recommend you bring your $$ to souvenir shop. Wish I would have planned for shopping on Yelepa out of all places. Also eat breakfast before going if you need it. They don't really have a continental bk, just juice and coffee. Lunch was cold sandwiches and salads with fruit and was good. The trip back was entertaining with music and dancing and open bar. The crew was amazing and took great pictures for us to purchase if we wanted. I would definitely go again more prepared with plenty of pesos on hand.

Everything was absolutely perfect! From the entrance to the port where we were very well guided, to the nickel boat, to the really nice guide, funny, and professional in his detailed explanations, to the attentive staff. Yelapa is a really cute little village. Feel free to choose the walk to go to the waterfall, which is worth the detour as it is really not strenuous at all and it is not for long (you can believe me as my husband and I do not really don't like hiking!). Then time to rest at the beach restaurant, no complaints, before taking the boat back to go snorkeling (not compulsory if you don't want to of course, you can stay on the boat and enjoy the open bar!). Afterwards, direction Majahuitas and there .... we found paradise on earth, literally! A marvel both in terms of the landscape and the beach club with a magnificent decor and a very chill atmosphere. Don't miss it !!

Considering bad weather. They rocked it outside control of nature

It was a great tour Mother nature took over but they made sure the experience was still up to standard. Even in the poor conditions I still give it a 10... My scuba diving guide was a bad ass. I felt safe and secure, his patience and instruction he made sure were very clear. I'm hooked on scuba diving. Highly recommend. I'm sorry we couldn't go to the over areas of the tour. But mother nature is mother nature. SEE YA AGAIN WHEN WE RETURN!!! Only down fall is that I felt the photos were a little to expensive. It cost almost as much as the tour.. I will give credit to photos as great.
