Captain Ken and his crew, Miguel and Rene, are first-rate and deliver exceptional hospitality. It was a pleasure sailing with them and I highly recommend that you do so when in San Juan del Sur. I think the route was just right - great tour of the coast, nice stop in Playa Blanca and perfect return at sunset back home.... More

Ken's sailing trip was a blast! We sailed to a secluded beach, watched the sunset from the boat, drank punch and beer and listened to Ken's old sailor tales! He was a delight and so was the crew! The water was choppy and very windy but Ken handled the sea with expertise. We recommend to anyone looking for a fun,... More

Captain Ken and his crew Rene and Miguel took very good care of us the entire afternoon with 'just right' rum punch, delicious fresh made salsa and amazing Dorado ceviche. The "Second Wind" is a 39 ft sloop and was perfect for us 6 guests. We headed north to the almost empty idyllic Playa Blanca for great swimming and beach... More

On this trip to San Juan del Sur, we looked up Captain Ken as we had sailed with him on our last visit. We sailed to the lovely Playa Blanca and returned to port watching the most beautiful sunset. The crew made us some delicious food; fruit, salsa and guacamole all freshly prepared. The crew were professional and very courteous.... More

It took a few calls but we finally connected with Ken and had a great day on the water and beach with the crew. The beach was lovely and the sail was nice. We would have enjoyed both sails up and motor turned off but it was not our call. The hospitality was excellent. I would recommend going for a... More

We chartered Captain Ken's sailboat last week and had a great time with Taz and crew. Captain Ken hoisted the sails and we sailed along till the gusts became too strong but it was a great adventure for us. He brought us to Playa Blanca which is a beautiful, remote spot to look for seashells and just relax. On the... More

Ken and his guys (the NICEST crew!) and of course his famous pup Taz really made our time in Nicaragua special. My friend and I wanted to spend an afternoon away from SJDS and we aren't surfers so this seemed like the best option. When we arrived at the harbor Ken met us and let us know the other 7... More

I am traveling w my elderly parents and aunt (75 ish, compromised health issues) and was a little worried about taking a sail boat trip with them. However, Capt Ken was like a mother hen looking after all of his passengers and ensured a safe and fun time for all. Wonderful day trip even for the elderly. Plus he takes... More

We picked this excursion at the last moment with other couples that were on our cruise. We were delightfully surprised at the wonderful way to spend a day on the water. We sailed to a beautiful secluded beach. On the way the staff tried to catch some fish which they would have cooked for us. Unfortunately, they had no luck.But... More
