Sayula 1 is a Custom 50ft Sailing Trimaran with all the luxuries on board for an amazing day on the Bay. Capt. Darrin has been sharing & teaching his passion of sailing good times & sailing with the whales with people for 25 years in many ports around the world before making Sayulita , Mexico his home. There is no other Boat , Crew or Captain that will give you the memorable time you will have on board Sayula 1 , "As said by many" . Great food & Open Bar , Being towed off the back of the boat with a Margarita in hand.Cool breeze'zzz , Sailing along with the dolphins , whales , Etc , lots of Deck Cushions & plenty of shade . Sailing is always a big part of our day.

We went on the Sayulita with a big group for a day cruise to a secluded beach. The boat ride was awesome! It doesn't get much better than sailing with your better half, and some of your best friends, chilling on the catamaran net with babes and beverages. My review is a bit late, but I will never forget that... More

Great excursion out of Sayulita. If staying in Puerto Vallarta, definitely just meet the group at the boat instead of going all the way to Sayulita. We had an awesome time and met some cool people too. They push the drinks and the food was good.

Very professional, yet relaxed. Super day on the water. Saw whales nearby having fun in the water. Saw blue-footed boobies (birds) on the shore ... swam, kayaked in their sit-on-top kayak, thoroughly enjoyed the visit into the caves! Constructively would offer that if you are not a swimmer, accept the help of the friendly crew. Highly recommend.

We neglected to book alley at months in advance and they were booked. The agent helped us get on the sayula 1. Turns out we may have liked it more. They provided food and drinks all day. Fresh ceviche and fish tacos with the fish caught during the trip was awesome! They had some technical difficulties with an engine belt... More

My wife and I had a wonderful day aboard Sayula 1. There were 25 guests aboard the boat and room enough for everyone to relax confortably. Great size group because there weren't so many and you could actually interact with everyone and get to know them if you chose. By the end of our day, everyone knew everyone else by... More

Wanted to book a trip out to the Marietas Islands, but did not want the crazy party boat. Thought that Sayula I would be the way to go. (and I will say, that yes, this is a good one for families, or others that don't want the party atmosphere...) I won't go into a ton of detail, rather offer some... More

Service excellent, drinks were plentiful and we had one of our best days in years. Pancho was our captain, he and the crew made sure we were having a blast. Even hooked us up to spinnaker sail, behind th catamaran. Highly recommend!

We took our group of 18 with Sayulita Sailing and had a blast. The staff was very attentive to our needs. They went out of their way to make sure that all of our kids (ages 6-11) had everything that they needed and that the adults were having fun with them. The food was great, the drinks plenty, and the... More

You get your complete moneys worth coming on this trip from service, smiles, adventure, relaxation, meals and drinks (alcohol and non). The only thing that would make it better was coffee and a snack between or after meals.
