Sailing Tours

Puerto Vallarta sailing tours offer luxury cruises, private day or sunset cruises or multi day adventures.

Hiring a private charter with a crew is the best way to enjoy your sailing trip. Food, drink and activities can be arranged so that all you need to do is show up at the marina.

Before getting on the boat, the crew will give you short briefing on the basics of sailing. After that, you can be as active as you want. You can either choose to just relax and enjoy the day or go scuba diving, snorkeling or swimming in a secluded cove that can only be reached by boat.

Learning to sail is another option. The experienced crew has a whole range of cruising lessons that will suit any oneʼs need whether novice or advanced.


1. Book your cruise in advance so you can be guaranteed a spot on a tour or a boat if you are hiring private charter.
2. Bring suntan lotion.
3. Be aware of what is included in your tour before you sign.
4. Listen to what the crew says. SAFETY is number one.

If you are lucky enough to be in Puerto Vallarta, donʼt miss out on a wonderful chance to sail the Bay of Banderas and enjoy all of the activities that Puerto Vallarta sailing tours has to offer.
