I joined a group of guys from San Juan del Sur and had a great time sailing south toward Salinas Bay, anchoring for lunch and a refreshing swim. Captain Ralph and his great crew made the experience fun, safe plus mixed in history entertainment and games making it a unique and memorable day. Thanks "No Bad Days"!

Had a great day sail with Ralph Hewitt and his crew of locals he's trained as Sea Scouts. They catered to our every need as we cruised south and spotted turtles and even a whale. We anchored at a beautiful bay for lunch and a swim in the warm, clear water. Then we sailed north back to San Juan del... More

I always felt comfortable with captain Ralph and his 60 plus years of sailing. How cool is it that this program benefits the local young men with the Sea Scout program? ( think Boy Scouts with water) As the rest of the reviews say, you will make a lot of memories. spoiler alert- Captain Ralph has something special planned for... More

From Ralph meeting us at the dock spot on time and escortin g us to the water taxi for embarkation on his ship the day was great. The weather was excellent and Ralph has a huge array of historical information and jokes to entertain you as we sailed. The young men who crewed for us were a delight and we... More

Ralph Hewitt is a great Captain and wonderful man. I had the pleasure of taking a spectacular 6 hour sail. We learned about the history of the Nica coastline, swam in the warm waters, were fed fresh fruit, drinks and snacks. Bigger than all that was watching Ralph mentor the young Nicaraguan gentleman. Who were actually sailing the boat. He... More

From the beginning to the end of this adventure, it hit all my trip check-off points. The excitement starts to build as you get to San Juan del Sur's Port. The Captain introduced us to all involved that will make our trip a safe and exciting one. The Sea Scouts loaded all the supplies and personal necessities. The Tender safely... More

We met the Captain of No Bad Days in Managua. When he learned we would be in San Juan del Sur, he invited us to keep a sailing day in mind. We took him up on his suggestion and had the most delightful afternoon sailing on his lovely boat with himself, and three of his hand pick Sea Scouts. They... More

My mom, two sisters and I had a marvelous time sailing to White Beach with Skipper Ralph and four very friendly, professional and capable sailors! The trip took about 5 hours altogether and we had time for a swim in the ocean, games, refreshments, towels, picture taking, very knowledgeable information about the places we saw, singing, and a toast at...

We were blessed to spend 5 hours on board the sailboat "No Bad Day's" yesterday. We had a fantastic time. Our family of 7 was joined by Skipper - Ralph and his crew Fransisco & Ellias. They gave us a day of a lifetime. Sailing, learning, touring, swimming and beach combing at a secluded beach, & singing sea shanties! Hope... More
