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

First discovered this sailing operation several years ago when my girlfriend and I were on a vacation to PV and Sayulita. The two of us bought on and had an amazing day sharing the charter with several other small groups. Darren was on board as tour leader, his nephew the captain, and a few other friends of the captain filled... More

We had a great time. Be careful while swimming not to swim near the rocks or you may get scratched up or stuck with spines from a sea urchin, as several people did. Be prepared for a pretty rigorous swim to get back to the boat from the island beach. We saw whales, blue-footed Boobies, dolphins and lots of fish... More
