“Mi Casa Sailing Trip is a great way to see the natural Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2009

We'd been in Mazatlan a few weeks and I'd been trying to get some good photos of pelicans on the waves. From the beach it's not easy, but our sailing afternoon on Mi Casa was perfect for that. It was also a wonderful sailing experience for someone who hadn't been out on a sailboat for over 20 years. Kym and Eduardo were so warm and welcoming that it felt like we were sailing with old friends. Kym picked us up near where we were staying and then drove us back. the sailing was awesome and we went out to seal rock and bird island and saw an amazing variety of birds. I got my pelican photos plus more. On the way back, just at sunset one blue-footed boobie flew circles around us diving and catching fish. The experience of a lifetime. I highly recommend it. They are wonderful people and will give you a wealth of information about Mazatlan and the natural beauty of the area.

“The best experience in Mazalan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2008

We had 11 people in our party ranging in age from 7-75. This unbelievable experience on the Mi Casa sail boat with Capitan Eduardo and 1st mate Kim made our trip spectacular. This is not some slimy booze cruise, just an unforgettable adventure for all on board. They are very safe, knowledgeable and terrific story tellers. They love to teach sailing and have tremendous patience with little ones on board. We will definintely be going back to sail with them the next trip to Mazatlan

“The best way to spend your time in Maz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2008

We met Kym at a local restaurant in El Centro our first night in Maz. Our host recommended we take a sail with her and Capt. Eduardo on the Mi Casa while we were there. So being avid sailors, we gladly agreed. Kym arranged to take us to the marina, and we set sail to the trio of islands just off the coast.

From the moment we stepped on board, Kym and Eduardo set us at ease with detailed safety instructions and friendly attitude. The 44 ft. Mi Casa handles well, and pretty soon we were really making ourselves at home on the water. Sailing near the bird sanctuary is a great opportunity to take photos because of the beautiful island scenery. There were so many species of birds; we were really amazed.

Kym and Eduardo are a wealth of knowledge, and thought of everything to make the trip fun. We had snacks and drinks, and even an ocean kayak to access the remote beach. We were able to choose whatever activities we wanted during the trip, so it was great not feeling like there was a set itinerary.

We went sailing on the Mi Casa twice during our stay: once to see the sunset, and once during the day for sailing lessons and sunbathing. Both trips were exceptional, and I recommend taking advantage of this unique activity.

“Tranquilo sailing off Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2008

Six of us had a delightful day after chartering the 44 foot Mi Casa sailboat with Captain Eduardo and first mate Kym, both of who speak good English. Kym prepared snacks and sandwiches and brought drinks. Eduardo let us work the sails and "steer" the boat. We saw sea lions and dolphins, talked and laughed, and we were under sail all but for the first bit and last bit getting in and out of the harbor at El Cid. Kym picked us up at the house we had rented downtown near Plaza Machado, and Eduardo delivered us back. All in all it was our favorite experience in Mazatlan!

“Sail Mi Casa -- the high-point of our Mazatlan vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2008

Sailing aboard the Mi Casa was not only the high-point of our Mazatlan vacation, but also one of the most enjoyable travel experiences we have ever had. My wife and I booked a private tour with two of our friends that would have been a deal at twice the price.

On the Mi Casa, my wife and I found the serenity, beauty, kindness, and depth that we seek when we travel. The Mi Casa provided a lovely escape from the bustle of a tourist community. As soon as Capt. Eduardo cut the engine and our ketch was under sail, we were lulled by the sound of the wind in the sheets and by the hull cutting through the water.

Mazatlan is known for its miles of gorgeous beaches and for its importance as a natural harbor. However, we only started to appreciate what a gorgeous part of the world it was when we viewed it from the sea. First Mate Kym kept a watchful eye out for the fauna of the area, including pelicans, frigate birds, sea lions, dolphins, and whales. With her background as a teacher, and Capt. Eduardo's extensive natural and nautical knowledge, we felt we should have been paying tuition!

Capt. Eduardo and First Mate Kym were also wonderful all-around hosts and tremendous ambassadors for the City of Mazatlan. They provided us with snacks, bottled water, ice-cold Pacifico beer, and one of the most enjoyable lunches we've ever had. Eduardo and Kym also offered us transportation and introduced us to what became our favorite part of town.

Guests on the Mi Casa are able to do as much or as little as they please -- our friend pleased to do a lot! He helped run the sails up the mast, steer the ketch, and drop the sheets. He spent the rest of the afternoon talking about purchasing his own vessel!

We would recommend the Mi Casa, her Captain, and her crew for anyone looking for a relaxing, interesting, and fun getaway.
