A nice ride but not as described
, Apr 2022
The pictures listed for the booking did not reflect what the boat looked like. It was a lot smaller and looked older than describe. My group of 5 was a little squished in the front due to spacing. We were a little seasick but were not offered any appetizers as the listing described we would receive. Even though our boat didn't match the pictures, our crew was AMAZING! The water was ridiculously choppy on the way to Isla Mujeres so all of us were extremely seasick and laid back during the ride with 2 getting extra sick. They assisted us where needed and continued asking if we needed anything. We enjoyed our time at the restaurant with really good food and our time around the island. We were given an extensive amount of time to eat, explore and enjoy the beach.

Hello Jazmin, I am glade you had a good time and so so sorry for the confusion . As you can see , we have two different boats listed with different prices and description . We do the same activities with the two boats , the only difference is the type of the boat and the price . You had chosen the Karma sailboat, which is a bit smaller, and more vintage, but it has more affordable price than Mayan sailboat that is very luxury , big , and as well with a bigger price . To have fun at the sea, it is no need to be in a luxury boat , because you can have the same fun and enjoy the activities like you did . Karma sailboat it is good for 5 people , but it is a sailboat , not a confortable yacht where you can have padded large seats . The configuration of the Sailboats in general can be very confortable as well ,but you have to look for a spot that can make you stay confortable . I am very sorry that you had a hard time on board , and did not like the boat and you had sea sick . We always have appetizers and drinks on board . The crew says that they offered you and the group but you say NO because of the sea sick and they do not insist . Anyway, thank you for letting me know for the next time so the crew can insist more about the food , because maybe not everyone had sea sick and get hungry and our crew did not offered anymore . I am sorry for that ! I hope you can give us a second chance so you can see that in Karma you can be confortable as well ( not like in a yacht but much more comfortable than you have been ) and we will provide you the same nice appetizers hoping to be liked by all . Thank you !

Wonderful private sailing experience
, Mar 2022
Evelio and Julio were outstanding. We were able to sail for several hours both there and back and then were able to explore a snorkel spot at Isla Mujeres. The snorkeling was just okay, but the beach and water were outstanding. If you like sailing and like having a boat to yourself, this is definitely worth it.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thank you so much John ! We always try to anchor in a beautiful spot ( and pray to not come many boats suddenly) so you can feel like there is nobody but you and the group enjoying the beauty of the nature . Thank you so so much !

We are on our honeymoon and it was also my birthday. Javier and Ricardo were attentive to anything we needed. We were under sail most of the time and then we got to swim and relax at Isle Mujeres. Food and drinks were great. It was a perfect day!
Totally recommended
, Feb 2022
Evelio and Julio were incredible friendly and helpful. The boat adventure was very nice, the snacks were delicious after swimming and very attentive crew. They both help tremendously with our 5 yr. old boy who is afraid of the ocean but Julio made him feel very confident in the water. We’ll defenitely recommend to take this tour, it is relaxing and definitely a great experience for the kids.
Amazing private sailing trip
, Jan 2022
Really friendly crew that took excellent care of us. Loved the privacy as we were able to customise the trip as we wanted. Totally recommend them. We went to do a bit of snorkelling at the beginning and then went to Isla Mujeres, stayed there at one beach for a while and after sailed along the cost of the island.
Nice experience but did not meet expectations
, Sep 2021
The water was amazing and the crew was super friendly. Unfortunately, I felt we spent more time navigating rather than doing activities. The water was very choppy and using sails instead of the motor might have made things worse. Overall a nice experience but I’m just not feeling we got our money’s worth

Not a romantic excursion
, Jul 2021
We booked this excursion as the highlight of our 20 year anniversary trip. Unfortunately, it was not the highlight we had hoped for nor expected, especially for the cost. If you are looking for a day hanging out with buddies this is your trip. The staff was really nice and when they spoke with us it was good conversation. If you are looking for a romantic excursion as we were, this may not be for you. There aren’t any places to layout as there are on some sailboats. It is very small. We had to sit across from one another in the well of the boat with the crew. Which makes for good conversation ability with the crew, but also makes you sitting next to the smell of gasoline. It made me very nauseous. Luckily, they only use the motor to dock and get out of the marina. There was only beer and water offered, as I don’t drink beer, this was a disappointment for me but not the end of the world. Just more calories for snacks right? But there were also no snacks. They said they could make guac but had to stop by the island to buy chips so we could eat it. We didn’t bother and ate lunch at a restaurant on the island instead. They did bring a small cake for our anniversary they offered on the return trip that we ended up just bringing back to our hotel room. The windy weather added to the frustration but that is completely out of their control. Though we still tried snorkeling (at great effort on the crew's part—thank you) it was a no go. 5 min in and we had to get out. We had also made arrangements to fish but they didn’t bring the equipment on board. So in the end, we went to the island and spent most of our paid sail time there. I truly wish they’d have brought the fishing gear so we’d have had another option as the wind was too high to snorkel. We ended the tour early choosing to miss the sunset sail. It just wasn't worth more time on board. Oh, we were not on the boat they messaged us the day before so that was a confusing start. Go expecting to chill with friends —not for a romantic session and you’ll have a good time! From one small business owner to another: Please manage the expectations of your guests. Put photos of all your boats on your website. If all you serve is beer and water, say beer and water is available. If there isn’t food available, please let people know. We hadn’t eaten lunch and were really hungry. If you say fishing will be available, have it available. Weather you cannot control but everything else you could.

Very nice crew, but the boat was different than the pictures
, Mar 2021
First I would like to say our crew was awesome and very accommodating. However, the sailboat pictured is not the one we sailed on. I believe there was a problem with the caption or something because that boat was at the marina but we were directed to another boat. Although nice, the boat we sailed on was much smaller and older. Again, the crew was very nice, no complaints there, I just wish we would have known the situation beforehand and maybe been able to adjust the price for a smaller boat.

Good sailing day, great crew!

Eric and Astrid were very friendly and made the sailing tour a great experience for our family. The boys really enjoyed the chips and homemade guacamole. Recommended for people who love sailing and have a nice wholesome experience.

Absolutely Perfect Day!
, Feb 2020
This trip was everything we hoped it would be. My wife and I decided to have a small wedding ceremony on the boat with a few friends and Eugenia and Eric could not have been more incredible! They were truly the most genuine hosts I have experienced for a small day trip. Eugenia even went as far as being a photographer for us during the ceremony! We will never forget this experience and I would recommend Eric and Eugenia to anybody who desires paradise for a day! Thank you so much

Thank you so much for the great day out! Eugenia and Eric did a great job, and were very flexible with our children who were a bit tired that day. Eugenia went far above and beyond to make a meal that was safe for their allergies (and was very gracious when they were not as grateful as they should have been for that effort). All of this on Christmas Eve, nonetheless! Thanks again for the beautiful Christmas Eve sunset!

Jon , thank you very much for coming . It was very nice to have you all on board ! The children wore just three sweeties and very polite (considering that they are so small) and no worry's at all about the food . I am very sorry that they do not eat almost nothing but , next time I am sure they will not say no to the pizza that we will bring 😅. Thank you very much for everything ! Wish you all the best !
amazing day!

Worth every Penney!!!

We sailed for a second time with Eric and Eugenia in Cancun. As much as we loved the first time, the second time was even better!! Eugenia is amazing! She was always making sure everyone was comfortable and especially looked after me when the seasickness hit! 🤢snacks were amazing and plentiful! She even shared her recipe with me! The little touches make the experience and there were plenty here. Can’t wait to sail with them again!!! Eugenia, my “Jolene” friend...until next time!!

Oh Wendy , thank for everything . It was such a pleasure to have you all on board. Your way of being so fun and so cheerful has made my day. " Jolene " will also remind me a lot of you and also “ the red neck “ singers that now I know who they are. Wish you all my best ! Sending a very big hug ! Eugenia
Wonderful Experience! Just Perfect!!!
, Oct 2019
What an experience! Eric and crew were wonderful. . .top notch hospitality! I booked this for my husband's birthday. They had everything. . .great drinks, delicious appetizers, and Bluetooth for your music. The boat is a gem! They even brought out a tasty birthday cake (it was too windy for the candle). My husband had too many drinks before boarding the boat and go really sick. They were very accommodating. I definitely recommend sailing with them. We'll be back for sure!
Perfect bachelorette activity!
, Jun 2019
This sailing trip was excellent in that we could play our own music, move at our own pace and fully enjoy each other’s company. The boat was so clean, beautiful and spacious for the five of us. Perfect for a bachelorette! The crew was so hospitable offering a variety of charcuterie meats, chips and dip and unlimited drinks. We loved the final touch of sailing back during sunset while enjoying sparkling peach wine and fresh mango. Definitely recommend!

I loved the crew and the experience. The water was a lot more choppy this time of year so we didnt get to do a lot of the snorkeling but still enjoyed the water, views, fishes, and everything else. They provided us a wonderful lunch with beer and we all just relaxed!!!

What a great experience! We had a similar private sailing tour experience in Cabo, but this one topped it! My wife and I traveled with 2 girls 12 and 10 and the kids had a blast. Great communication before the trip, and Eugenia was on top of every step. Awesome husband and wife team! Even though Eugenia couldn't sail with us, the crew on board and the Captain Eugenia's husband were very attentive. Eugenia helped us arrange the r/t transfer service from our hotel in Playa del Carmen to the dock. The transfer company was very courteous and prompt. We chose to sail to Isla Mujeres and wanted to hang around there. We originally booked a 5-hour tour but decided to extend it to 8 hours, so we can have more time to see the island and sail/see the sunset. Eugenia arranged a snorkeling tour who met us at the sailboat and took us to a great spot near the island. Same boat took us to the island and picked us up after we grabbed a bite to eat and walked around the island. The island would have been better to experience at a different time since it being the spring break time, it was filled with a lot of drunk college kids. I guess many booze cruise like tours come to the island, and it wasn't something I wanted my 10 and 12 year old kids to experience.. All and all it was a great experience. Only thing that could have been better was the weather. It was a little bit on the colder side and water was little choppy in the morning, but Eric the captain and the crew ensured we're comfortable and safe at all times. Once we got near the Isla Mujeres, it warmed up a little and water was calmer and kids had a blast swimming around the boat, using the ocean like a giant swimming pool. If you're looking for a private sailing tour, I'd definitely recommend it to everyone!
