Captain D, Pancho, Chewie and the entire crew were an absolute pleasure to navigate the beautiful beaches of Sayulita with! They were super attentive with our big group of family and friends, always making sure we had water and anything else we needed. Floating in the ocean, seeing dolphins and colorful fish, as well as going the Islas Marietta's were... More

We decided to take a sailing trip on a whim. We had a great experience! Great food, drinks, and company! Beautiful trip all around. The highlights were the private beach and the dolphins swimming with the boat. Thanks Captain D and Chewie!

The day starts out with a delicious fruit breakfast and the drinks start flowing! It was a great way to spend the day relaxing, and having fun without having 100s of people on board. We headed out to Marietta Island and had to swim out and enjoy the caves. Unfortunately, I am not a strong swimmer and was not able... More

We met Rio in Sayulita and he told us a little about himself and the company. He was an entertaining guy and the next day we decided to stop by his office and see if we could arrange for a sunset cruise that night. He quickly contacted the boat captain while out at sea to check on the possibility and... More

It’s taken a little while to get around to it, but I had to post a review to say how awesome our day was with Sayulita Sailing Explorations. We were a group of 7, including 3 adults and 4 kids ages 11-16 and we sailed on Sayula 1 in August 2014. Booking was easy – after e-mailing our inquiry I... More

We came to Sayulita on our honeymoon, and after one amazing trip on Sayula 1, we came again 2 days later. Darrin and his crew are so accommodating, and a BLAST! We sailed, snorkeled, saw beautiful caves and secluded beaches. Ate some incredible ceviche, fresh fruit, fresh sandwiches, rum punch, and more. Everything was perfect. Both times there was a...

Our family went on an excursion to Mariettas Island and had a fabulous time. The crew was wonderful towards our son who is autistic. This trip was the highlight of our trip and one the kids still talk about.

I was lucky enough to sail with Darrin and his crew two years ago when I was in Sayulita for a wedding. We had an amazing time. So when my family and I were planning a trip to Sayulita this past May, I was very excited to get back aboard Sayulita 1! We had a group of 7 people and... More

We found Adventure Sailing and Capt. D on Sayulita life and all the recommendations really speak to the experience. We enjoyed sailing and the trip to the Marieta Islands. The snorkeling, swimming, seeing dolphins, and just being out on the ocean for the day was all spectacular. The food was delicious and the drinks good, the crew was fun and... More

I went on the all-day sailing adventure with my boyfriend, his mom, cousin, aunt, and uncle. We all had a really great day that consisted mostly of laying in the sun on the boat's deck (There were comfy cushions and lots of nice spots to kick back), drinking beers (one of his crew brought them around whenever we needed more),...
