The best way to see the pacific coastline of Costa Rica
Kestra_J, Mar 2023
This tour was very fun and easy to find. The directions to the meeting point were clear and we started the tour very quickly. If you like to drink alcohol, you'll enjoy this trip. They offered beer, wine, and liquor throughout the entire experience. Beautiful views of the ocean and a good chance to see some wildlife like whales, dolphins, crabs and more. I highly recommend it! My only complaint is that I wish it were longer.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Wow Kestra_J, thank you so much for the great review. It means a lot to us and the crew! Thank you !! Pura vida

DAnna_A, May 2022
This excursion was unfortunately one that seemd to be for those who are retired or older. if you are in the age range from 20s-30s this is not your trip. The crew was not really that friendly, not only that this is not a booze cruise in which you can actually get a drink. they make you sit down the entire time on the boat. the drinks are extremely watered down! you literally have them just walking around the boat asking if you are, ok? UH yeah, I guess we are since we can't stand or do anything at all. There were also obvious microaggressions made towards my friends and I. they played 70s disco old school music! nothing current or up to date when asked if we could change it or use a Bluetooth the gentleman said yes if it's music everyone would like. clearly insinuating anything that because of our color we'd play more hip-hop & rap music. it was very clear. also there was some other guy who constantly stared at me and made me super uncomfortable. The experience was enjoyed bc I was with friends but if you can find another boat to take with actual ability to move around and enjoy yourself GO THERE!
Response from Host, May 2022
Hello DAnna, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. Costa Rica from May to October often experiences choppy water. The safety of our guests onboard is our first priority. Unfortunately, if you are at the front of the boat, we ask that you are seated. We are a family-oriented tour and we cater to families with young children. For this reason, we generally only play our playlists. We recommend Private Tours to guests who would like to play music and have a more catered (or more crazy, if this is your style) experience with their group of friends or family. We are not a booze cruise - this is extremely outlined in our confirmation email. We are family oriented and for this reason, we do not define ourselves as a booze cruise. Another reason we do not promote our tour as a booze cruise is that our tour involves entering and exiting tenders (small boats) to the secluded beach we visit. It is not safe when passengers have been drinking heavily. As for watered-down drinks, Cacique - which is the white rum made from sugar cane - tastes more like sugar than liquor. It is the foundation of all our drinks. I assure you all our drinks are handmade and are in fact more than half liquor. We really take great pride in the mix of our drinks and that they taste great and are not overly done. We apologize you felt uncomfortable. We pride ourselves on professionalism and courtesy with our clients. We really appreciate your time to review your trip with us. Thank you, Sarah

Missed the boat!
Natalie_N, July 2021
I’m not happy because this tour changed the time to earlier from 130 to 1130 and I wasn’t advised so I missed it. Waiting on a refund from them now.
Response from Host, July 2021
It seems strange to us that without attending the tour you give us a rating, even more knowing how happy our clients end up. Again we explain: from March 15 our tours are from 11-3: 30pm, when you book in your confirmation there is the time change, this for security reasons since after 4pm we usually have high waves and heavy rain. We will always take care of our clients, hopefully one day you will visit our tour and change your mind.
Perfect day on the water
Cornell_H, July 2021
The trip was amazing. The boat was immaculate, the crew was funny, kind, and professional. Stunning views on the beach and a delicious lunch as well! Met some great people, made great memories and we will highly recommend this to anyone visiting this area!

Not worth the price
MAC, July 2021
The boat was entirely too small for the 25 people they had on board. We where packed in like sardines and barely had any room to move or dance. One of the staff was very rude when we tried to complain about the space and told us we can “get out and get our money back” as if we where not already there. Drinks on the boat was not great and the boat quality was not good. The best part of the tour was when we where dropped off at the beach to relax. The food served on the beach was ok. Overall this was not worth the amount charged.
Response from Host, July 2021
Hello Mac, We are sorry to hear that you believe the tour with us was not worth the price you paid. It is our priority to deliver the best service, food, drinks and on every tour to every client. The catamaran has just recently been rebuilt and is coast guard approved for 40 guests. We believe strongly in customer service and comfort and to be able to deliver this we limit our guest count to 25. It is a 50' Catamaran and one of the largest in this area. We are not a typical catamaran, that operates party boat cruises. Our catamaran is a sailing catamaran with double nets in the front and low to the water for better aerodynamics. This makes our catamaran more of a real cruising feeling than a taxi boat and has a little less floor space in the front. Everyone normally dances on board with no issues and has a fabulous time. Once again, I have reviewed your concerns with our crew and we do everything possible to serve only the best cocktails, the best handmade, fresh (not catered) food that is prepared on the beach. We also have highly trained and experienced crew and I apologize for your less than par experience with us. Pura Vida, Sarah

Perfect Catamaran Tour
Lisa_B, May 2021
We love Sealounge Catamaran so much we're about to book our third tour. We live 25 minutes outside of Jaco (American Expats) and love taking this for ourselves on the weekend with family and friends that visit us. The staff are super friendly and fun, the book ride is not too long, the island is dreamy. Enjoy the drinks, homemade food, water; PURA VIDA.

Amazing experience
FawnMarie_S, May 2021
Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough about how fabulous this was. After viewing others reviews of Tortuga island my niece and I chose to do this adventure instead and were not disappointed. The boat ride was so much fun with music and drinks and I felt very comfortable with how experienced the crew was. The beach was gorgeous and we had it all to ourselves. There were chairs for everyone, water toys, and always someone available to help with whatever we needed. Lunch was delicious as were the drinks and snacks! Got to play volleyball and had a wonderful time chatting with the crew. It was definitely a highlight of our trip and would highly reccomend!!! Pura Vida!
