Cruising the Gold Coast of Mexico

This seminar is designed for sailors who want to eventually head further south than The Sea of Cortez or Mazatlan into “tropical Mexico.” These days people successfully “commuter cruise” to the fabulous locations on Banderas Bay including Punta Mita, La Cruz and Puerto Vallarta, or further south along Mexico’s Gold Coast to Tenacatita, Barra de Navidad, Manzanillo or the fabulous Zihuatanejo. Many cruisers, after seeing this part of Mexico, eventually continue further south into Central America and go through the Panama Canal or do the “Puddle Jump” to the south Pacific. The McIntoshes and McCalebs are active sailors who, between them, have been in and out of practically every cove, bay or marina on down to Panama. They have navigated the coastal waters, the island anchorages, and the open ocean passages; they have been in the hurricane-holes, and the airports, and driven the Mexican roads many times. Are you looking for first-hand information about where to go, and where not to go, where to find parts, do your provisioning, get the laundry done, find a good mechanic, or find a great out-of-the-way anchorage? This is your seminar. The area covered will include south of Mazatlan to Banderas Bay / Puerto Vallarta, and “The Gold Coast” south to the Tehuantepec.

The McCalebs and the McIntoshes have conducted cruising seminars together for several years. They have helped thousands of other sailors prepare for cruising. Attendees at this seminar will be given a copy of their newest book, CRUISING NOTES – Underway to Mexico.
