What To Know About Renting a Boat in Puerto Vallarta

There is nothing quite like exploring the beautiful Puerto Vallarta coast by watercraft, and there are many local charter options that you can explore during your stay. Motor yachts and sailboats are equally popular in this region, and can help you to see a great deal of the coastline while still allowing for plenty of time for relaxing in the sun. You can also keep it simple by checking out a sea kayak, jet ski, or paddleboard, or tune into your adventurous side by snorkeling, diving, or trying out a water jet pack.

Sport fishing is one of the biggest draws of Puerto Vallarta. In addition to the joys of spending a day out on the water, there are a wide variety of specimens that you can catch just a short ways away from shore. Charter a sport fishing excursion for the chance to land trophy-size tuna, mahimahi, sailfish, or marlin.

About Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is an idyllic Mexican resort town perched on the scenic Pacific coast along the Bahìa de Banderas — considered to be one of the most beautiful bays in the country. It is an internationally renowned travel destination due to the appeal of its stunning tropical beaches, incredible scenery, and abundance of water activities. It can be quite humid year-round, and very hot during the summer, so plan your trip during the autumn to spring months to avoid the hectic tourist season and to enjoy the milder temperatures.

    Islander 36' Sailboat for Charter in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit

    Fernando and the crew were very helpful and friendly throughout our trip! We got lots of fun facts on our ride out, saw lots of sea life from the boat and snorkeling, and loved the beach we visited! It was a seamless experience and the crew went above and beyond in terms of service. We brought our own tequila and they made great drinks for us on board throughout. The boat itself could use an update in terms of facilities and decor, but it was an amazing day on the water and everyone had such a great time! I wouldn’t hesitate it book again, this beats a large tour company any day!

    There were 13 of us on this chartered catamaran. It was a perfect boat for us. The crew was amazing and the food delicious. We would definitely do this again.

    Highly recommend! Very quick communication, and they are very helpful in helping you figure out an itinerary that works for you. We rented the boat for 4 people for my boyfriends 30th birthday and they even got him a cake! Hugo and his team were amazing, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
