This was the best part of our 7 day stay in Nicaragua. Zach and his crew were awesome! Breath taking views and endless alcohol!! Everyone instantly bonded on our sailing adventure. Soooo much fun!!

Went on the full-day sail out of San Juan. Well worth the full-day option. The crew was fantastic...very fun & accommodating, and they made sure everyone was having a fabulous time. Captain Zach was great - he had plenty of great information to share about the country and about sailing. We were fortunate enough to see whales and dolphins on our trip. Definitely include a trip with Nica sail & surf during your stay in San Juan. Enjoy the beautiful coast of Nicaragua!

Zach, Brandon, and their crew were truly amazing. My girlfriend and I did a half-day sail with them in late December, and it was a major highlight of our entire trip to Nica.

From start to finish, their team was attentive, professional, and fun! We had a great group of folks on the lovely catamaran with us, and everyone was able to sit back, enjoy the sail, and relax while Zach and crew took care of the rest. We sailed out to a pretty much deserted beach where we dropped anchor. My girlfriend and I dove right in and headed to shore to enjoy the sand for a bit. One of the other guests couldn't swim, so Zach's crew got her all lifevested up, with a floatation tube, and swam her to shore. She was able to fully enjoy the entire experience because they went well above and beyond.

The snacks after the swim were delicious and drinks (rum, beer, juice, soda, and water) were flowing. It was a great way to head back to San Juan and watch the sunset. Also, the crew cast some fishing lines out, and one of the other guests got to reel in the fish when they caught something!

Totally first class!

My group went fishing, on volcano tours, and a couple of other excursions and this was by far the most enjoyable. If you want to sit back, eat and drink to your hearts content, and enjoy good company with the best views nicaragua has to offer, this is the excursion for you. You will not be dissappointed! Captain Zach and owner Brandon have their act together. Great business men and even better just to hang out with. I will be doing this again as soon as I get back to San Juan.
