Panache Sailing, out of Flamingo Marina, was excellent to deal with. We had booked a sunset cruise on a day that turned out to be 38C. We got on the catamaran, but my husband wasn't feeling well (heat stroke). The crew there gave him ice, allowed him to lay down, brought water, and expressed concern over his well being. Ultimately, he decided to get off the boat, rather than risk being sick during the cruise. The crew members walked him to our car, gave me directions to a medical facility, and volunteered to even go with us. After all that, they refunded the cost of the cruise in full. Very impressive, I thought.

An absolutely great afternoon on board the Panache catamaran under a sunny, blue sky and calm sea.
We watched as one of the crew reeled in a whopper of a fish, an unexpected visual treat!
All the crew were very friendly, courteous and helpful. Drinks were provided, including excellent cocktails. The late afternoon supper was delicious with fish, chicken and vegetarian tortillas, chips, dips etc.
They provided all the snorkelling gear including mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy aid and noodle float.
Once in the water, the lady crew member guided the group to spot various fish including a star fish.
The group onboard was of mixed ages.
To round off a brilliant trip, we cruised back to the marina looking at a beautiful sunset.
Highly recommended.

We had such a wonderful day with Panache Sailing out of Playa Flamingo. The crew was so helpful and experienced. We stopped for swimming and playing in the water, just as if we had sailed the boat ourselves! The food the provided was top notch! Highly recommended.

Quite the fiesta. Beautiful catamaran and a great afternoon sailing the coast. Lots of activities to do - paddleboard, snorkel, kayak, swim. Most people snorkled (it was a little boring kayaking around the boat, tbh, but that's where the crew told me to go.) Really great team and they made sure everyone was having fun. Pushed the booze a bit hard for my tastes but everyone else seemed to enjoy it. One comment/suggestion - the playlist on the boat. It's mostly country western (which may be to the taste of many Americans; I'm just not among them.) But a great experience, recommend highly

We spent the afternoon on a catamaran sailing trip whilst on our honeymoon and we had the best time. The boat was lovely, the staff were all so friendly and attentive. Delicious drinks and food and an all round great vibe. We did some snorkelling and got to try padel boarding too which was really fun.

We took a sailing, snorkel and kayak/paddleboard trip out of Playa Flamingo and had a fantastic time. The staff were professional, friendly and attentive. They were making sure that drinks were in hand all the way out and let us catch fish on the way to snorkeling. The beach they anchored out was beautiful, and they allowed a generous amount of time to snorkel and paddle around. The really impressive part came at the end, where they showed off excellent sailing skills and practically flew back to the marina on the wind.

What an amazing way to spend the afternoon. We cruised out for about an hour then anchored to enjoy the water. They had a guide take you snorkeling, or you could use the paddle boards or kayaks. After we got out of the water we were expecting snacks but we had wraps with chicken or fish, beans, chips and salsa and other snacks. Drinks were flowing for the entire trip. The crew was very attentive and even came around to serve us! And of course the grand finale was the sun dipping into the ocean on our return. A perfect day!

Such a great experience. Beautiful scenery. Drinks provided and lunch was really good. Staff was kind and attentive. The water was clear for lots of fish viewing during snorkeling. We were staying in Las Catalinas and transportation was provided.
