No show Cap
Torrance_J, May 2023
I would leave a 0 if I could. Booked this excursions to end our amazing week in San Juan. Captain was a no show. When finally got in contact he states he didn't know he has a boat ride. We were refunded but are all very disappointed. We were looking forward to a nice sail with champagne to end our trip.
Sail with Captain Jimbo
Tiffany_P, Apr 2023
Captain Jimbo was always safety first and spent the time discussing history of the island, the way a sailboat works, and his love of the island. We sailed through sunset. It was absolutely amazing to be out there in the evening. A dream come true!
Awesome cruise!!

Beautiful day out in the water Captain Luis was very personable and explain the sights are we sailed. He then allowed us to drive the boat and control the sails which was a lot of fun
Fantastic time on our private sail!
Nancy_T, Mar 2023
We had an incredible afternoon of sailing with Jimbo on San Juan Bay! It was great fun to have a private sailing trip with just our group on the boat. Jimbo was friendly, knowledgeable and an excellent sailor! This sail was a highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico!
Glorious sailing adventure
Ida_R, Mar 2023
Our captain, JimBo, was great. He was attentive and knowledgable. Masterful sailor. We had a glorious day on San Juan Bay. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because my friend and I are in our lat 70s and found the boat a little uncomfortable to sit for 3 hours. Next time I'll bring my own cushion. Otherwise, a memorable afternoon.

Excellent trip. The captain was incredibly knowledgeable of the history and was a good teacher for those that wanted to take a turn at the helm.
Simply the Best!
Cecilia_M, Aug 2022
This was hands down my favorite part of my time in PR. The captain was hospitable, knowledgeable, and just an extreme pleasure all the way around! I learned so much and was able to take the wheel for a bit and sail the boat! Unforgettable moments gives us the memories that lasts forever.
Perfect Sail for friends
Ebony_C, Aug 2022
Jimbo and Gabby were amazing! Jimbo was very knowledgeable about the island and the history of it. Gabby paid great attention to us and made sure we ate, drank, and just enjoyed our time there. This was a great experience and we would definitely do it again.
Will Remember Forever!
Jules_H, Aug 2022
Last minute trip to San Juan turned into a vacation we will remember for a lifetime. Luis and Gabriel were amazing Captain and crew and very friendly. If you want a history lesson and boating lesson in one this is the excursion.
Jimbo is Great!
Michael_P, Jul 2022
Our family had a great sunset cruise with Captain Jimbo. He made it very enjoyable and fun for our entire family. Highly recommend using him for your trip. He also taught our family the basics of sailing a boat and let our family sail the boat, which was very fun for them. Thank you Jimbo!
Perfect sail
Andrea_O, Jun 2022
Captain Jimbo was excellent. Gave great history lesson of the area. Not only sailed in the harbor, but out into the ocean. It was a relaxing 3 hour sail, exactly what we wanted.
Great adventure
Hannah_R, Jun 2022
The captain was very friendly and had alot of knowledge about the island. The best experience was when he taught my kids how to snorkel they loved it.
Great day on the water!!
Key_R, Jun 2022
Jimbo was awesome! He told us alot of history about San Juan. Very interesting! I really enjoyed learning about the the history of this beautiful city. We saw El Morro and just some awesome sights from the water. Loved the sailboat and sailing. This is a must do in my book. Thank you, Jimbo, for a great experience!!
Amazing ocean sail
Madeleine_A, May 2022
Jumbo was an excellent captain. We had a great afternoon on the water, and I got to hone my sailing skills on the open ocean. Not everybody wants to do that, but I’m glad I could! Absolutely would book againn
Awesome Time
Michelle_P, Apr 2022
We had an awesome time. Jimbo and his crew mate were wonderful. It was my husbands birthday and they made it very special. Jimbo was so calm and knowledgeable about sailing. We will come back next time we visit.
Well worth it!
Molly_C, Apr 2022
Such a great day! Jimbo was experienced and knowledgeable and we loved our time on the boat! It was so cool to see the fort from the water as well!
Delightful afternoon well spent
Stacey_M, Mar 2022
Jimbo was great with our group. He gave us the history of the region as we passed through the scenes. He is very knowledgeable in Puerto Evian history & heritage. His boat is perfect for an intimate sailing experience.
A safe variety in a single sailing experience
John_P, Mar 2022
We enjoyed a late morning thru early afternoon sailing excursion with Captain Jimbo. The view of Old San Juan from the harbor is just as magnificent as walking her enchanted streets. Captain Jimbo took us on a thrilling ride just outside the harbor where the swells were easily 12 - 15 feet. Importantly, at all times we felt safe. For this reason, I highly recommend this excursion for anyone looking for variety in their sailing experience.
Sunset sail
Natalie_B, Mar 2022
My daughter learned a little about sailing and a lot about the history of Puerto Rico. Such a fun experience and a lasting memory for sure! Recommend the sunset jaunt. The moon and stars were in full show-off mode.
Fantastic captain
shane_w, Feb 2022
Captain Jumbo was fantastic! Instructed us on sailing the boat Salt of the Earth kinda guy. Very knowledgeable about Puerto Rico history. This is a must if you come to Puerto Rico!
Nice tour
Cornelius_K, Feb 2022
We were four adults and two children 5 and under. All had a good time. Captain extremely friendly both with adults and with children. We had a good time and got a view of San Juan Bay with its fortresses and forts. from multiple angles.
Fantastic sailing trip
Logan_K, Jan 2022
We sailed with Jimbo in January 2022. The trip was fantastic. It was a beautiful day, we were able to soak up the sun and enjoy beverages while Jimbo told us some of the history of Puerto Rico. He is incredibly knowledgeable both about sailing and about the island. He took cues from us, sharing as much or as little as we wished to hear. One of our friends took him up on his offer to sail the boat and learn some of the basic tenets of sailing. We would absolutely take this boat tour again and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Awesome Experience. Highly Recommended.
William_S, Jan 2022
Jimbo was awesome. Great Captian - he really knows the boat very well and it's clear he has been on the water his whole life. The best part was that we wanted to learn how to sail and he was an excellent teacher. He was patient but definitely let us take control when we were ready. There were some folks who just wanted to chill and take it all in and some folks who wanted to get really involved. Jimbo was great at catering to both parties. Everyone had an awesome time and would definitely do it again. Can't recommend it enough!
Fantastic sailing trip!
Julia_B, Nov 2021
Beautiful afternoon out on the water with Capt. Jimbo who is such an expert sailor, patient teacher and knowledgeable tour guide!
