To thoroughly enjoy Nicaragua's coastline try boarding Captain Ralph's sailboat "No Bad Days". The crew are extremely knowledgeable of the area and Ralph adds wonderful vignettes along the way. A great lunch is also provided along with beverages although I highly recommend bringing extra water! Great experience!

A friend and I hopped out into the waves for a day sailing with Ralph and his Sea Scouts. We had too much fun. The beautiful coastline itself would be enough to enjoy, but Ralph keeps you entertained and well-informed the entire excursion. We got to try our own hands at helping out with the sailing, which was great, and... More

My husband and I met Captain Ralph and his lovely wife, quite by coincidence, in Managua, only one day after arriving in Nicaragua. As Ralph described his boat, No Bad Days, and his work with the Exploradores Marinos, we knew this was on our "must do" list when we got to San Juan del Sur. Simply stated, it was a... More

Had the priviledge of sailing with the Sea Scouts out of San Juan del Sur during my last visit. I have known about the sail for a number of years but for one reason or another never did make the time to go. I am so glad that the time was made on this trip. We had an absolute blast... More

We had a great adventure with our group of eight on the No Bad Days with Captain Ralph and Sea Scouts, Carlos and Lukas. Carlos and Lukas did a wonderful job sailing the boat as Captain Ralph shared some of San Juan del Sur history with us. We sailed North to a seclude bay where we cooled off in the... More

We've stayed at Park Avenue Villas several times, but hadn't yet gone out with Ralph and the Sea Scouts on his sailboat. That was a mistake. My husband and I had a wonderful time, and Ralph made it so much fun! He's a character, and he made us laugh the entire trip! He has a foundation that helps train local... More

We spent a great afternoon with Ralph and the Sea Scouts he's teaching to sail. The tour gave us great views of the coast and landed us on Playa Blanca, a deserted white sand beach where we were able to swim, snorkel, and beachcomb. A perk of choosing this sailing tour is that the proceeds go toward helping local kids... More

It was an amazing day of sailing and seeing the beautiful coast of San Juan Del Sur. We swam to secluded beaches, saw dolphins, heard about the history of San Juan, and enjoyed a day of sailing with captain Ralph Hewitt. Ralph took many pictures during the 4 hours of sailing and emailed them to us. He is very informative,... More
