This trip was recommended by other people in our condo complex and we were not disappointed! The yacht was wonderful as was the staff and overall experience. Will definitely recommend your tour to others.
Boat and staff were great, it was a wondefull experience. Would book again.
Very attentive staff. Very comfortable seating arrangements. Clean washrooms, good snacks, competent captain. What else can ask for!
A very comfortable boat combined with an excellent captain (he knew where to locate the whales) and crew (attentive to any and all needs). Very professional, and an excellent experience for all.
Friendly crew. Clean boat. Good service. Just hoped we would have seen more whales. Make sure you bring sunscreen!
The boat and staff were great, but we didn't see much whale activity.
Clyde and Sylvia are the most gracious hosts. Their team of crewmembers deliver excellent customer service. The cruise wasn’t overly crowded so everyone was able to find their perfect seat to watch for whales. Boy, did we see a lot of whales! I think we got seven or eight opportunities to see different whales. They were jumping and flipping their tails out of the water and everyone was thrilled to be able to get great pictures. The crew served beverages and light snacks and were very attentive to coming back around to clean up and see if there was anything else you needed. The cruise is well priced and delivers as promised. I highly recommend it!
The whale watching tour was amazing! I'm so happy that we had seen so many whales. It was experience my husband and I will never forget. All of the staff on the boat was so friendly, professional and amazing. I would highly recommend going on the whale watching cruise that they offer here.
The boat is beautiful, the owners and staff friendly and knowledgeable, the snacks and drinks perfect, and the whales put on quite a show. We can’t wait to go again!
This was our second trip on the Kleid and was a stellar adventure again. Loved the whale watching and we had an awesome time.we will be back onboard in two weeks!
Better than expected! Crew was great and we saw the whales. The boat is large enough to be very stable in the water. It was a very enjoyable day.
We had the most wonderful time. The boat was beautiful and the staff were amazing. Food and drink were also top notch. Will definitely go again
We saw whales, some up close. The boat is beautiful and spacious. The crew were friendly and helpful. I would pay more to get a more substantial breakfast with fruit, yogurt, muffins and perhaps small breakfast burritos. We got very hungry out on the water.
The time spent on the boat for the price vs other companies is a great value.
The captain and staff were superb from start to
finish. The entire boat was spotless and well m
maintained. We ended up at the wrong marina and
when I called to say we were on our way I
was told they would not leave without us.
I highly recommend this company.
Great boat, Great service, Great people
The Crew, service and "whale show" was amazing! Th
Excellent service! Price affordable for a family!
Only concern is disrespectful who butt in and stand in front of you thus blocking the view. We were seated in chairs with our family and young children. People push in to stand in front of us so we couldn’t see anything. Disrespectful! An announcement at the beginning of the tour suggesting people be considerate of others may be helpful. I may not have mentioned it but our grandchildren 11 and 9 brought it to our attention!
for the non drinker more non-alcoholic drinks would be better, also snacks should include
Best boat and crew ever and I am a boat owner for 40 years
Been out on the bay a few times but have never had such a fabulous experience. This vessel is simply amazing and beautiful. Captain & crew all outstanding and so knowledgeable. We saw at least 22 humpbacks in all their glory. Captain very respectful in keeping distance, etc., never once did we “chase” the whales. Thank you all for a special experience, we will go out with you again!
we have been coming to pv for 20+ years - and every year go out o see the whales. we now have a company we really really like and will use every year now. thanks caption & crew
Luxury cruise ... loved the boat and especially the price. We hope to book again possibly for cruise to Yelapa next Wed ... and when my sister & husband come the week of Feb 3 for the sunset cruise. Want to see first if they want to do this. Hope you are here next year when we come back!
The Captain and his crew were very accomadating. The Experience as a whole was nothing short of AMAZING. I would recommend it for all ages.
Good size boat. Attentive and pleasant crew. Appreciated the morning g coffee. I felt the boat was cognizant of the welfare of the whales. I thought we were whale watching and not whale chasing. It is an enormous privilege being able to see these magnificent animals in their habitat. A highlight of our trip to Mexico.
The price is definitely affordable, especially when bringing children.
I also appreciated the crew's quickness at collecting any and all garbage that may have otherwise blown overboard and that would have added to the pollution problem.
The boat is such a great ride the crew is so fantastic the boat is so fantastic it's just a wonderful experience all in all
We were very happy with the whale watching tour. The boat is roomy, clean, and the crew are knowledgeable and fun. The snacks and drinks were a bonus. Great value!
Great boat - Great Staff - Great trip - Great food
Everything was fantastic, from the service to comfort. I recommend it
Excellent service , beautiful boat !
This is a great tour. Plenty of room and very clean. A good selection of drinks offered, and plenty of snacks if you wished
We had awesome time with your services both to Yelapa tour and whale watching!
Service staff are friendly, food and drinks are wonderful, the boat is gorgeous and comfortable.
The prices are affordable, we really enjoyed your hospitality and will be our “go to” boat tour whenever we have guests from the States. Thank you!
The booking process was simple and straight forward. Pickup location was perfect. The boat was beautiful, clean and spacious. The crew were amazing! So friendly, professional and hospitable. Aside from all that we saw so many dolphins and followed a group of amazing humpback whales for the first couple hours then cruised the coastline on our way back to the marina! The day was perfect! Would highly recommend.
We were vacationing in Puerto Vallarta in December 2018. In the lobby of our hotel we saw an advertisement for a whale tour. It looked a little sketchy for our taste, but our interest was peaked. We did not realize this was something we could do in Banderas Bay. I googled whale tours near Puerto Vallarta to find other options than what our hotel advertised. We are from Colorado, and we have very little experience boats. I am 53, and I had never been on a boat out in the open sea. Kaleidoscope Charters website came up. I liked the description as it sounded like something I would be willing to try. I called the number and immediately received the information I needed, and we chose to look no further and to book a whale tour with Kaleidoscope, December 4th 2018. We were more than pleased. We actually can't say enough about how wonderful and memorable this experience was for us. The Kaleidoscope was a smooth, enjoyable catamaran experience. Absolutely beautiful! The captain and his crew were exceptional! The crew was friendly and kept complimentary beverages and snacks coming. We enjoyed seeing not onlywhales, but dolphins, and even sea turtles! The boat was filled with a lovely group of passengers that eagerly shared details about their previous tours on this boat, and how much they enjoy the Kaleidoscope, the captain, his wife and crew. They explained the history of the Kaleidoscope including how the captain built this vessel himself. Banderas Bay was sparkling and gorgeous! None of us got sea sick! I was very nervous, and I ended up falling in love with the entire adventure! As I had nothing to compare to, I chatted with fellow passengers who raved about Kaleidoscope and many comments were made about the number of whales we saw, more than anyone expected so early in the season. It was indeed thrilling! Thank you Kaleidoscope for an absolutely, incredible experience we will treasure for the rest of our lives. If we are fortunate enough to return to Puerto Vallarta in the future, this is a tour we will book again, without a doubt!
