We came to Sayulita with both of our families. We have children ranging from 5-10 years old. We researched two or three local companies and spoke to the locals and decided on Sayula as they were the best bang for our buck. The crew was top notch and really knew their stuff. They catered to our little ones and really... More

This is the 2nd time I've been on Sayulita Sailing Explorations and we enjoyed our experience again!! We rented the boat for the whole day for a private excursion and it was perfect. All 21 of us were picked up in Sayulita and driven to the marina where we were greeted by the friendly captain and staff. Immediately we were... More

Next its non stop beer and shots. Lol. Very casual cruise to Mariitatas island. There happen to other boats that arrived with 60 or more passengers aboard their boats packed... More

My fiancé and I arrived to Sayulita and decided that we had to do some type of excursion. I had heard of Marietas Island and really wanted to see it. We ran across Sayulita Sailing and signed up. The entire experience was soooo worth it. The catamaran was comfortable, the guys played awesome music, we were fed delicious food, stopped... More

I was planning a day-after-wedding booze cruise for a group of about 25 friends in April. Darrien got back to me right away and was very open to meeting our requests for time, transportation needs, and the activities we wanted to get in. I was a little anxious about pre-paying and how everything would turn out, as things can be... More

Sayulita Sailing Explorations knows how to do it! They provide all the toys, a beautiful boat, music, all the food and drink you could want. Catch a fish and they will prepare it for you on the boat. The staff were extremely attentive. Regarding the one star review from a few days ago when the trip got cancelled, that is... More

Allison took our deposit on a Saturday at 6pm, said we left the following morning at 8:30am. We were on time. By 9:15am the guy from the fruit stand next door told us he heard the tour was cancelled and that they would open later to give us our money back. No email. No call to the hotel. No note... More

To chill, sail, and enjoy one trip that you will never forget this crew will deliver. our 22 people all had everything we didn't know we needed by the Captain and crew. 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

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
