Vallarta Yacht Rentals offers an exceptional experience. From the moment we arrived at the Marina, we were welcomed with warm smiles, safety instructions, and were introduced to an impeccably clean, well-maintained, and comfortable 48 ft Sea Ray yacht. The crew promptly served us drinks and crafted special micheladas that were some of the best I've ever tasted! Felipe, our gracious host and boat owner, ensured that everyone was well taken care of. He joined us for swimming, lounged on the spacious floating lily pad, and shared in the laughter and camaraderie. Felipe also prepared a delicious lunch for all ten of us, including homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, and mouthwatering BBQ burgers fresh off the grill. His outstanding efforts and culinary skills truly made him a stellar host!

Phillip and his 2 man crew were awesome. We booked him direct while we were on our Norwegian cruise in Puerto Vallarta. He arranged a private van to pick the 14 of us near the pier to get to his very clean and nice yacht.They had all sorts of snacks, croissants, breads, fresh fruit, cocktails, beer, water plus chips and guacamole. We got to see whales on our way to the beach where we had lunch.The entire crew was very professional and attended to all of our needs which included refilling our drinks whenever we needed or didn't know we needed them :-).Our 5-year-old twins had a great time and were totally safe Plus they enjoyed their virgin pina coladas.Philip was very conscientious about the time we needed to get back to the port so we had zero issues worrying about not getting back in time and missing the ship.We highly recommend and will definitely book again the next time we go back to Puerto Vallarta.

Top notch experience from beginning to end! Phillip was very responsive and helpful from the get-go. The actual voyage onboard the Escandalo was perfect! Ernesto and Victor were very professional and delightful to be around. Both made the expedition so enjoyable! Next time you are in PV make the time to sail aboard with Vallarta Yacht Rentals!

Philip and his team were incredible. We had a group of 11, half adults vs kids and they thought of everything for us. They truly made the experience luxurious and unforgettable. Everyone in our group said this adventure was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Vallarta!Thank you!!
We went on the Escandalo private yacht sunset cruise, there were 11 women most who live here so we are very familiar with the various boats and cruises in PV. This was exceptional. The boat is beautiful and the crew were so attentive. We were offered champagne on arrival. An open bar and hors d'oeuvres followed, the service was top notch. They also helped us to get around the boat when needed. We had a great time. Thank you to the captain and crew for making it a special evening. I would highly recommend this cruise for a special or any occasion.

A lovely sunset cruise with a great crew. Such an enjoyable evening seeing the Bay at night and to end the night, fireworks on the beach at one of the water front resorts. Recommend very highly this yacht charter company. Thank you for such a memorable night Vallarta Yacht Rentals.

Another awesome day with captain & crew aboard Escandalo. Beautiful beach, and the service, food & drink at El Volador restaurant Quimixto was exceptional. So fortunate to see a pod of whales and dolphins playing in our wake.

We live full time in Marina Vallarta and the Escandalo is by far our favorite luxury yacht experience. I can’t count how many times we’ve been out with this crew but every time is simply breathtaking! Highly recommend if you’re looking for a beautiful boat with a top notch crew!
