They not only had our amenities -food/drink/pillows/etc.- aced, they also knew how best we could take advantage of our time on the water. A photo op that might... More

We had a wonderful time sailing with Sayulita Sailing! The crew was very friendly and very attentive! We enjoyed our freshly prepared breakfast and yummy lunch that was very delicious! We loved it that all the food and drink was included in the price! We enjoyed paddle boarding and kayaking around the island and seeing the beautiful birds. Sailing back... More

I have been on all the sailing trips offered in Sayulita, Mexico and the best and most worth the money was my adventure with Darrien Roth and his Sayulita Sailing Explorations trip. It felt like we had our own Captain and crew. The staff were especially friendly and informative. Plenty of space to move around and ample time to enjoy... More

My girlfriend and I are regular travellers to Saulita. We love the laid back atmosphere and authenticity of the beautiful Puebla. We are both avid sailors and were looking for a charter that would meet our needs. We wanted an amazing nautical adventure without the commercial Disney Land feel. We found it on the Sayula 1. This 50ft trimaran is... More

My girlfriend and I had an excellent time on Sayuli 1 with the crew. We had a small crew group and the crew was super friendly. We saw some whales, went swimming, had some drinks, ate great food, and laughed a lot. My girlfriend got sea sick on the way out and the crew was very accommodating in helping her... More

My 40-something friends and I (one with a baby in arms) all agree that this was one of the best things we did in sayulita. The crew was friendly and relaxed and never stopped offering drinks - we didn't overdo it but it was appreciated. The food was decent, and we saw tons of humpback whales! Was definitely worth the...

To start I am giving this company 4 stars because of the behind the scenes NOT because of the excursion itself. To book this tour, you will speak with Rio who seems very helpful until you pay at which time hearing from them was very brisk or short and no longer as friendly. We were concerned with arrival time and... More

Stacey, For the record, nobody will be booking with me because i no longer work there, but i will give you a fair response for your entertainment if nothing else. If your "brisk" comment was in light of OUR conversation then i couldn't have been brisk after receiving payment because that was the last time we spoke. I remember your... More
