Sailboat excursions?

Does anyone know of a sailboat excursion other than the Picante? We are looking to go out for a couple of hours or so on something smaller than the Picante. We don't fish but love to be on a boat, especially a sail boat.

That sounds like a wonderful activity! I would love to do that. There are lots of little fishing boats that will take you out-they will probably have lines in the water. But that is definitely not s sailboat. You need to be here for Sailfest! I hope someone answers with a great suggestion about this.

Thanks Linda , that is another option for us. We went on the Picante sunset cruise and absolutely loved it, so thought we would like to do something on a smaller scale. In Manzanillo we went out on a 28 foot sail boat and had a wonderful time.

Biggest problem with the Picante is it seldom actually sails, bit powers almost entirely. At least that's what I've observed & been told.

HI Linda,

Are you a part owner of El Manglar or is it just really delicious? I have noticed that you mention it quite a bit and I really want to check it out when we arrive in December for 2 weeks.

Linda introduced me (& many others) a number of years ago at a group get together. I had the 27 Spice Tuna that night & many nights since but have eaten a number of other delicious items there.

I usually go several times each season.

Peddler, you are right they put up the sails but it was under power the entire time. Even so, we thoroughly enjoyed going out on the ocean, dolphins around us, gorgeous sunset, and the gentle winds blowing.
