“The best thing to do in Puerto Vallarta”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon this amazing sailing charter by a fluke while renting a car. This is by far the most amazing non touristy thing to do and that isn't saying enough. This is a beautiful 45 ft. Sail boat family run. From the moment you embark you are pampered and served unlimited drinks what ever you can imagine really, they start of with fruit and freshly baked Danishes, then after awhile serve an assortment of appetizers while you are sailing in luxury. Then lunch which is a choice of amazing entrees all of this is cooked right there in the galley by a chef. This will be the best 100 bucks you will spend. If you don't do this you are missing out on a fabulous adventure. It's a six hour cruise of usually motoring out and then whale watching for some time then after lunch sailing back. First class all the way and an absolutely fantastic crew. I have recommended this to many and all say the same thing. So just do it! This is not a booze cruise like many others and you will never be sardines crammed. Can't say enough.

“Ada - Jewel of Bahia de Banderas”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

This past February I arranged for our company’s Board of Directors, their family members, and our closest friends to sail with Ernesto and his crew aboard Ada – it was absolutely fantastic. Our day on the water with the Ada crew in Bahia de Banderas went far beyond our expectations. The adventure excelled in all respects: nautical competence, the cuisine, the ambience, and, of course, whales! The weather could not have been nicer and Ada made the entire day perfect for us.

We can't wait to return to Puerto Vallarta and sail with the Ada crew again. As a USCG-licensed Captain and Past Commander of the San Diego Sail and Power Squadron, I can attest that Ada is a well-found, well-maintained, beautiful yacht that is very professionally chartered. We very much look forward to sailing on her with Ernesto and the crew again.

“it was the BEST thing we did, unforgettable”
Reviewed February 24, 2010

forget "BOOZE CRUISE" this was beautiful, peaceful and private. The sailboat is a dream, you feel like a millionaire with your own staff. the food was delicious, they let me catch a fish and moments later they had turned it into ceviche and served it as a snack. If you have ever dreamed of leaving it all behind and sailing off into the sunset, this is the one you want. I book some sort of boat excursion every time we vacation, this was by far my favorite, there were only 6 of us we had the entire boat to ourselves! This was a truly unique experience.
