Very relaxing
Apr. 2021 • Couples
A welcome piece of tranquility on this sailboat trip with some interesting snorkel stops - who knew the currents were so strong in these waters! We hitched a ride on a trailing rope behind "Xanadu" as she drifted in the flow. Local, knowledgeable crew and great relaxation at anchor off the isla mujeres. Recommend going in the morning to avoid the very popular anchorage at lunchtime. Check out the Tern colony on the island and enjoy the break from the bustling resorts in Cancun.

Private Sailing Tour to Isla Mujeres
Mar. 2021 • Friends
Doing this private 8 hour sailing tour to Isla Mujeres was one of the best experiences of my life. Julio and Aubelio were excellent hosts and sailors. They gave us tips as to where to eat and explore on Isla Mujeres. As per their recommendation we ate at Muelle 7 Restaurant and enjoyed piña coladas in hollowed out pineapples and had the some of the freshest seafood we ever had. Then we rented golf carts across from the restaurant and explored Isla which has breathtaking views of the ocean. On the boat ride back we went snorkeling and Julio was nice enough to help me and a friend who did not know how to swim snorkel! He went above and beyond! We even caught sunset at the end of the trip. Am I nforgettable experience! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to truly experience Cancun!

Book it! You won't regret
Dec. 2020
This experience was beyond amazing. We were quite unsure first, as there are not many reviews here and the price is quite significant (at least if you book it as a couple :)). We did book via Tripadvisor for the next day. Here is my only "be careful", but it has nothing to do with Eric and his team. Tripadvisor sometimes does not forward the bookings in real time. I called Eric to confirm the booking and it turned out, he did not receive it. So my advice is: call or text the number on the website, if you book short term. From here everything went just smooth: Eric claims he doesn't speak English very well, but he does :). He confirmed my booking via phone, checked for the pick-up price (not included, which is ok) and organized the pick-up from hotel after my confirmation. The boat is beautiful. We had the trip with Eric and Astrid. Eric is the captain and Astrid is "responsible" for the hosting. We booked the 6 hours tour. Honestly, if you read another review here complaining about food - disregard. If you book less than 4 hours, you get less food. If you book 6 and more, you will get great stuff. But if you are there for food, maybe go to a restaurant, instead of renting a boat for sailing. So back to business: Eric sails very smoothly, you can move across the boat, sit in the front and just enjoy the waves and everything. You can go for a swim or just drink a beer in a float which hangs behind the boat. The team really cares about you and the overall service exceeds any expectation. Worth every cent.

Private Sailboat Tour
Jul. 2020 • Couples
We had a private tour booked at 2:30pm and after waiting for 10 minutes outside the hotel, we called the tour guide and they informed us our tour had been cancelled because they didn’t have any boats available. My boyfriend received the cancellation email 2 hours after the tour was scheduled to start. He was really looking forward to this so it was a major disappointment that we were able to book this and have it cancelled.

Perfect Day
After moving here three months ago and not once seeing the ocean due to the virus, a day on the water with Eric and Sophia was just what we needed. It was great to relax, and enjoy the beautiful Caribbean. Chit chatting with them and hearing their stories was one of the best highlights. Eric sharing his sailing knowledge with my boyfriend who even got to sail a bit. The beer was nice and cold and the appetizers yummy. Can't wait for friends and family to come visit so we can experience it again. Thank you again for a great day, Eric and Sophia.

Great Sailing Excursion!
Dec. 2019
Had a wonderful time on this trip despite some early rain. Highly recommended. Captain Eric and “First Mate” Eugenia were wonderful hosts. Note that the boat does not sail to reef for snorkeling. Swing in ocean was great though.

Sailboatcancun
John, Thank you very much for taking your time writing your experience. Unfortunately, only the small boats of Isla Mujeres have the permission of the Port Captaincy to go to the reef . They can approach to the reef very close so people can be safe ( sometime the reef can be ruff ) .We snorkel only around the boat, but we have the option to snorkel on the reef as we collaborate with a small boat and makes us clients a special price to take them to snorkel in the reef. This is something that we have to know in advance, to be able to schedule the snorkel on the reef activity . Next time if you will come to Cancun, it will be great to do the snorkel on the reef if that is something that you missed ( we have good price with the small boat and it will be great to take advantage of it) . Thank you very much for everything . Kind regards to all !

Isla de Mujeres sailing
Dec. 2019 • Family
Private pick up from hotel to dock. Breakfast was served before boarding the catamaran. The boat holds about 35 people. The stops included one for snorkeling and one for jumping off the boat and playing in the water next to the boat. Then we were taken to Isla de Mujeres. We had about 3 hours on the island to explore by golf cart or enjoy shopping and water activities before sailing back to Cancun. The crew was excellent and friendly. They were really helpful and kept the kids safe in the water. We sailed on boat #5 with Justine.

Best hosts in Cancun!
Had such a great time with Eugenia and Eric, who made a very professional and caring couple of hosts for our private sightseeing tour.

Cannot day enough good things, they accommodated and suggested every step of the way to ensure we enjoyed our trip.

Easily the best service in Cancun!!
