Reviews and Testimonials

My recent trip with Maya Sailing Adventures was the perfect blend of adventure, excitement and rejuvenation. Being aboard this beautiful custom boat amid stunning (and remote) natural surroundings was an exhilarating retreat from the “day-to-day.” Maya’s staff couldn’t have been more supportive in ensuring our group an enjoyable, educational and safe trip!

Spending four nights and five days on Maya felt like a month long vacation. There’s something about setting sail into the sunset that really allowed us to disconnect, leave everything behind and just unwind.
The boat is beautiful and spacious. I was endlessly impressed with how well equipped it was. The cabins were really inviting but in all honesty I spent three of four nights sleeping above deck in the lounge area at the helm. It was hard to resist an opportunity to sleep under the stars in the ocean air. Epic.
Captain Terry made everyone feel immediately at home. From his willingness to explain and involve us in the sailing process to his vast knowledge of safe practices and endlessly sunny disposition. Combine this with the beauty of Santa Cruz island, fishing, snorkeling and yoga on the beach, it’s an experience not to be missed.”

Enjoyed every moment! A wonderful adventure with a captain who is friendly, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Feel the peace and serenity of sailing the sea on your own personal sailing adventure. This should be on everyone’s bucket list :)”

“This trip is a must! I have snorkeled in many parts of the world and the kelp forests of Santa Cruz island were absolutely world class. Literally thousands of fish in one view. The captain knows these islands intimately and it shows. It was my first trip and I felt like I was visiting an old friend because of all the knowledge he shared. We had great meals, great hikes, and great conversation under the stars. I am ready to do this trip every year!”
