Captain Fernando is awesome! Very skilled and knowledgeable about Puerto Vallarta. You feel completely safe and pampered while on the boat. The one thing I love about Fernando is that he is 100% about providing the best customer service! He is punctual, rates are very reasonable, and you also get a snack and drinks included. By far the best deal in PV, and Fernando and his family will make you feel welcomed and special. Boat was clean and safety protocols were in place. We have two excursions with Fernando, and honestly we will never use anyone else for our boating excursions.

What an amazing day on La Vida Bella touring the south shore of Puerto Vallarta, los Arcos, Mismoloya, and Las Animas. Fernando the captain snd his son were amazing. They were very knowledgeable about the area, the fish and birds. They spotted 2 Manta Rays that were about 15 feet each that kept playing around the boat and dolphins that also put on a show for us. Fernando and his son could not have been nicer and they kept our glasses full! They videoed the Manta Rays for us and sent it to us! Lunch was delicious at Las Animas as well.

We have taken many boat tours over the years in PV and I have to say this was the absolute best one ever!

So awesome! Fernando was amazing. We brought our entire family including my Mom who was apprehensive but he made her feel at ease and was so accommodating! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything and would highly recommend if you are ever visiting PV. We will definitely do this again next we come!

This is the best private boat tour for 6 or less in Puerto Vallarta. Captain Fernando and first mate Mixon is absolutely the best. They are so knowledgeable and friendly and go above and beyond to make sure your trip is perfect. You decide what you want to do and they will make it happen! The best of the best!

We loved this trip really personal service just asked us what we wanted to do and worked around us. The boat is clean and comfortable. We saw whales and had lunch on las animas beach. I would not go on any other boat tour when you see the crowded boats you know you’ve made the right choice. Thanks a great day out.

Book it!!!! The Fernandos gave my girlfriend and I the most amazing experience. We got engaged on the boat and Fernando made sure it was in a beautiful spot along a private beach, and recorded the whole thing. We saw sea turtles, dolphins, and so many fish!! I was very nervous to snorkel and swim in open water but Fernando made us both feel so safe and comfortable even when not on the boat. Unforgettable experience. They went above and beyond with margaritas, shots, and guacamole. The boat is spacious and comfortable and Fernando is great at finding sea life. Would recommend 100000/10

This was our second time on La Vida Bella and it was as perfect as the first one. This time we swam and snorkeled at Los Arcos and then went to Yelapa. We walked to the beautiful waterfall being let by Nixon, the first mate, and then had a relaxing lunch on the beach. The boat is extremely clean and the perfect size for 8 people. There is plenty of shade and as much sun as you want. We never lacked for a drink or snacks on the boat. I highly recommend La Vida Bella.

Our private boat tour was a highlight of my first trip to PV. I booked in 2020, but had to cancel due to COVID. Ashley saved my deposit and communicated regularly until I was able to reschedule. We had 5 girls total and were comfortable on the boat. Fernando made us feel safe, secure and catered to our needs. It was a great way to tour the bay and view real estate and private beaches.

Fernando and his assistant were so wonderful! They anticipated any need we had before we even realized. Drinks and snacks were abundant. Fernando was so informative about the area. We saw dolphins, many fish and a jumping manta ray! We highly recommend touring with Fernando and will be back soon for another fabulous day on the boat!

Fernando was a great host! He made us all feel very relaxed and the trip was incredible. The sight seeing was beautiful and I was terrified of snorkeling but he guided us well and I felt at ease and ended up loving it. Highly recommend this excursion!!
