We have been sailing these waters since 2008 first as Sailandstay and now as Sailnplay, and more recently on our luxury catamaran, Optimist of London II, a Lagoon 380. We operate all-inclusive 4 hour cruises with a delicious meal, all drinks and watersports included. New for 2019 we are also operating a classic vintage wooden boat from 1957, the La Pinta del Este, on great-fun 2 hour trips around La Herradura Bay with a stop for a swim and snorkel in the lovely clear waters, with refreshments available on board. Or if it is pure, unadulterated luxury you crave, then join us on our 38ft high-powered Rodman cabin cruiser Charlie Ruggle for a 4 hour cruise around the gorgeous Costa Tropical with top cuisine, and all drinks and watersports included.
We can accommodate individuals, couples, families, small groups or large parties on several yachts in a sailing flotilla, or onboard La Pinta del Este for up to 50 guests, with the option of terrific food and a free bar, perfect for your special event. Just call or email us with your requirements.
You can relax & enjoy your day at sea with our fully qualified skippers and professional crew to look after you.
