I've been on several of these boat excursions and this was by far the most fun and contained the variety. Everything was super laid back and the crew was amazing. I went alone and ended up meeting an amazing bunch of people. Went snorkelling (had never been), visited the much talked about Marietas Islands, and ate some great food. Left... More

This was my boyfriends and I second time on the Sayula one. We booked through Rio who we met on the beach. We went to his office the next day and booked our trip. He didn't remember us, which is ok (he talks to tons of people). We went with another couple who had never went before. We enjoyed a... More

Okay Megan, Enormous exaggeration Megan. Are you just having a bad day and can't let it end with yourself? EVERYBODY is EXPLICITLY explained before anything that we meet at the office "TO SETTLE UP PAYMENT" AT 8:45 AM.. "NOT 8:30 AM" (I think you told yourself that) . That would mean we would meet at the office at 8:15 AM.... More

My family and friends had a great time aboard Sayula 1. The crew was super. The cold truth is that the boat itself is a little rundown, so if you are looking for a luxury experience with like-new kayaks, paddleboards, etc this is not the boat for you. But if you want to avoid some of the more rowdy, overcrowded... More

For 1,100 pesos you go out for the entire day on the boat to see whales and a sea cave. It is very worth while and the entire staff is incredible. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to take a day out on the ocean

We had a great day on the boat. Weather was perfect, we saw many whales, some right next to the boat, the kids did snorkeling for the first time ever and we all enjoyed swimming into the beach at Mariettas Island. Both adults and kids were well catered for when it came to food and drink. Thanks for a great... More

I wish I could give 4.5 stars instead of just 4, because the 2 things I would change are fairly minor. First I want to say that I was so grateful to Rio, who runs things, for letting me go because they were booked up solid. It was New Year's Eve day and the weather was perfect! The boat was... More

So glad you enjoyed your trip. I felt a magical day going as well. We appreciate that you appreciate the extent to which we cater. On the topic of the kayak. We have replaced the part and even added two new paddle boards. The many people in the island on that day had everything to do with the time of... More

Been on two trips with captain Darren, and it was a blast! The second time we went on this trip, the great captain Darren asked us on our way back to shore, if we were up for a sunset trip. So we decided to go back out, something I never will either regret or forget. It was full moon and... More
