an all day excursion on the trimaran with an awesome crew. Went the Marietta isles, swam, snorkeled, had ceviche with fish caught while sailing. One of the highlights of our two weeks in Mexico. Muchas gracias.

Had a wonderful time aboard the catamaran with Rio, our host for the day. The boat was smaller than many of the other boats, about 30 people and we actually got to sail some instead of just motoring the whole time. The trip was out to The Marrietta's and included swimming, snorkeling, a couple of kayaks and a live musician.... More

This trip was relaxing, comfortable and a ton of fun with our sailing friends. The staff was accommodating and delightful. The boat was comfy and the food was great. Don't miss getting out of town and out on the water when you visit this area, it's priceless.

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
