For over 10 years, we've thrilled guests with extraordinary first-class, customizable tours on the Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. No matter your style - leisurely or adventurous - we have the getaway for you.

"Wine and dine" your private party (VIP "5-Star Service" Sail) or indulge in the simplicity of the sail (Classic Sailing). Get the best of both worlds (Snorkel & Sail) or lose yourself in Vallarta's irresistible scenery (Sunset Sail). Zip across the waves to Los Arcos, Mahajuitas, Yelapa and private beaches (South Bay Experience). Get some "fun in the sun" (Snorkeling & Beach Play or Marietas Island) or say "hola" to the Humpback whales (Whale Watching Tour).

No matter what you choose, our friendly, bilingual crew will treat you to an extraordinary, first-class day on the Bay. Relax, discover and reconnect with Ada Sailing.

We were a group of 11 adults and teenagers. The entire crew was welcoming and attentive. We "cruised" during spring break at the end of March 2017. We are still raving about the food - how they can provide such delicious food with limited facilities is a mystery! We cruised, swam, ate, drank and truely enjoyed ourselves for 6 hrs.... More

After vacationing in Vallarta for over 25 years we decided to do something different and sailing with Ada was our choice! Everything was perfection- the crew, the comfort of the 45 foot sail boat, the food and the experience! I cannot recommend Ada any more than I do. It is worth every peso!

This was the highlight of our trip to Vallarta. The 45 foot sailboat was clean and beautiful. We saw whales, dolphin, and a stingray. Andrea and her crew do such a fantastic job. They serve 5 star drinks and food and make sure you don't go hungry or thirsty. We had the Red Snapper and the teriyaki chicken skewers. The... More

Just got back from our day of sailing with Ada sailing on 45 foot sailboat. It was a wonderful day. The food and drink were spectacular but the service was by far the best we have had the entire week we have been here. I highly recommended this and we will be back to do it again in January 2018....

Oh my! The cocktails, the appetizers, the freshly cooked red snapper, all from a tiny galley kitchen. And of course, the sun, the wind, the sails, the lovingly restored boat and beautiful Banderas Bay. Andrea and her dad have created a truly memorable experience for anyone lucky enough to share it. Worth every penny! Perfection!

There is a reason you have to book well in advance. A magical sail in Banderas Bay with 12 other lucky passengers. Their appies, drinks, service, meal - all 5 star+. The captain & crew were outstanding & professional. The day was perfect and we were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins, a huge manta ray, sea turtle... More
