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.

    Tiara 42 Motor Yacht Charter in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

    I was worried about doing a boat charter in Mexico as I’m from USA. And I was happy to put this review that I was a 100% safe and this was a legitimate tour. Octavio and Carlos were very friendly and great hosts.

    Hugo was very responsive and made it very easy to setup. He even reserved our transportation to and from the marina which was extremely easy. Once onboard, the staff was incredible and they made the experience even better. Would highly recommend booking with Hugo instead of going through one of the other large companies.

    Sea Ray 42 Open Cruiser Yacht Rental in Puerto Vallarta

    This experience was exceptional! Our crew Charly, Daza and Luz were amazing, they went beyond their way to make our bachelor weekend memorable. Definitely the best guac made by Luz, a must try! The boat was more than we expected for the six of us. We will definitely be back. Thanks again to Hugo for everything.

    I am visiting puerto Vallarta for my bachelorette party and we booked the boat last minute and it was by far the best decision of the trip. The staff was absolutely amazing, Charlie took us out snorkeling and Luz was so kind and sweet. The food was so good and they provided top customer service. Ceviche was so yummy too! The crew made us laugh and overall we had the best experience. The boat was exactly how it was pictured too, bigger in person! Would definitely book again.

    This was a great way to book a boat ahead of time and knowing what we would get. It’s nice to be able to use the app for the biking and payment process.
