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),...

Me and my girlfriend went sunset sailing with Darrin and his crew and were so happy with the experience that we went again to a day trip with him again. I'm not going to rewrite everything that people have written here because it would be redundant. I can attest that the positive reviews written here parallel with my own experiences.... More

Beautiful day of sailing & snorkeling with friends & our children with Sayulita Sailing Explorations. Captain Darren (formerly of Malibu, CA & Sayulita resident for 20+ years) and crew were fun, knowledgeable and very friendly. We could not have asked for a better day on the water. We saw several dolphins, possibly a whale or two (it was not whale... More

Captain Darren is a great host and commands an amazing crew. Plenty of great food and drinks made for a enjoyable experience. The snorkeling trip to the Marietas was incredible- Captain D was attentive to the kids and the remainder of the group to ensure everyone's safety. Thanks to the Captains knowledge of the area we were able to avoid... More

Truly amazing day of sailing & exploration aboard the very comfortable Sayula 1. We were able to enjoy a great sail out to the Marietas islands doing his best to avoid the other crowded tour boats and allows us to enjoy our visit to the islands even more. He provided breakfast & lunch along with plenty of refreshments. If you... More
