“Beatiful Boat, Great Crew, Fun Times”
Review of Nica Sail and Surf

Nica Sail and Surf
Reviewed May 7, 2012

A group of 13 of us recently traveling in SJDS spent a day with Captian Zach and Crew on this beautiful catamaran tour. The views while we were sailing were absolutely gorgeous, Playa Blanca where we stopped for snorkeling and snacks was a little hidden gem, and the snacks and drinks that they served us were all delicious. None of us could get enough of the yummy Mai Thais! It was a really fun day at an extremely great value.

My husband, 5 year old son and I sailed on the 1/2 day trip with Captain Zach, Sommerset, and Byron. This a a great trip, and a great value. The guys were all so welcoming and the service was fantastic. We met the very friendly captain at the dock and headed on a beautiful sail to Playa Blanca, a practically deserted beach. The boat was fully stocked with plenty of drinks, floats and really great snacks. As other reviewers have said, amazing ceviche. My son loved the chance to jump off the front of the catamaran into the gorgeous blue water. The music was great, the crew was awesome, and the scenery is amazing. We ended up getting back into the bay in time to catch a great sunset. Highly recommend this tour. We are so glad we went. Thanks for making us feel so welcome!

Playa Hermosa was the best! There was shade, trees, hammocks, food, drink and you could watch the little turtles return to the sea after being nurtured by the locals

If you happen to have a day that your trying to fill with a tour this is it. If you ask around for Captain Zack he's easy to find. We were out for tacos and asked around for which was the best boat to go out on and we were put in touch with Zack. We met Zack at the marina and hit it off right away. After chatting about sailing and his crew we were very impressed by how much experience these guys had. For young guys (late 20's I think) these guys really love sailing. They sailed their amazing boat around from Florida thirty days over to Nicaragua.

But the main reason I have to write this review is the service. The catamaran is beautiful with tons of room an a great hammock in the front. The guys were always there with another beverage if needed and great snacks(killer ceviche). It was a lot more like going out on a good friends awesome boat then going on just another tour.

To sum up this is a must do while in San Juan. Maybe go twice. We did.
