Are you ready for the best day of your vacation? Upon arriving on one of our luxury sailing yachts the crew hands you a welcome beverage as we start our journey heading to the southern side of Banderas Bay enjoying the smooth ride. When the winds are ready, we pull all of her sails up and let her be pushed with the power of wind, there is nothing like moving across the water with nothing but the power of the wind. Along the way you and your guests will enjoy the dolphins, sea turtles and whales (December - April) and they Edwina--Day-Charters-Puerto-Vallarta2love our sailboats especially under sail, we have had them as close as 20 meters from the boats, you can almost reach out and touch them. Dolphins always love to play in the waves. We will take you past some of the most beautiful spots on the bay such as Los Arcos with a possible stop for snorkeling before we take you and your guests to some of the most beautiful private beaches and coves along the southern coast for swimming and paddle boarding and exploring. The electric swim platform (on the Sun Odyssey) makes getting in and out very easy. Of course the chef will make sure that snacks and drinks are plentiful for you. They will take care of your every need throughout the day and make sure everyone is having a good time.

On trips of 6 hours or longer we make our way to the small fishing village of Yelapa which is an cool small village with a beautiful beach and waterfalls. We are happy to take you and your guest on a short tour and hike though the village to the waterfalls which is about a 15 minute hike through the small town, there are no cars and Yelapa is only accessible by boat.

Next the chef will have lunch on the boat ready for you as we make our way bay to the marina. Afternoon winds generally make for very nice sailing so hopefully we can give you the full sailing experience.



"An unforgettable experience! We loved sipping on wine in the spacious cockpit while taking in the sunset views on the Sun Odyssey. Professional crew who welcomes you with unparalleled hospitality. A feature we really appreciated was the hydraulic swim platform allowing you ocean entry and exit with ease - our 70 year old mother had no problem getting in and out of the water! It also had an aft deck shower for an easy rinse off after swimming. Banderas Bay is better on yacht!"

"What a magical little getaway! We went out in the morning and within the first hour of sailing we already saw whales diving and breaching close to the boat. We had greats hosts that took good care of me and my friends. Shared some great cook ups, the boat is very spacious and comfortable and the captain was very good at teaching people about sailing if they wanted to learn. Highly recommend Luxury Sailing Vallarta to anyone who wants to get out on the water and have a truly relaxing getaway!"
