The crew was friendly,...

The crew was friendly, attentive and the meal was great! Relaxing and enjoyable joy ride. Bonus was the snorkeling and jumping/diving off the boat when we were anchored.
Beautiful, even though I had horrible seasickness

Everything about the cruise was great, from Minor(so friendly and funny), to the crew, to the delicious meal that was prepared (I could only taste it, because I had horrible seasickness). I don't think you can go wrong taking this tour. Thank you for your hospitality. Pura Vida

We did this cruise in the rainy season, but we still got to see humpback whales and lots of tropical fish. It's a great way to see the beautiful coastline scenery. Our tour guide was very nice and the chef made a delicious lunch of fried congrio, vegetables, rice and beans right on board. Highly recommend!
So much fun!

This was an awesome experience! Our guide, Minor, was so fun and friendly and kept the energy up, even when it rained. We were greeted with drinks and music as we set sail. The boat has a slide that goes into the water and a platform to jump from which we all took turns doing. If I had to say one thing that would’ve made it even better- a longer time snorkeling with instruction (i had never done it before and wasn’t familiar with how to use the mask). The lunch (mahi mahi with rice and veggies) was delicious. Everyone had a great time eating, drinking (open bar included), swimming, and laughing. Side note: it was pretty choppy when we went out and someone on the ship got sick so just a reminder to bring Dramamine just in case!

Our party of 6 had an amazing time on the Sunset Sails catamaran! The crew is absolutely amazing, serving many drinks, great lunch and entertainment. We saw whales and sea turtles during our adventure. We’d highly recommend this excursion!!
Great sailing adventure

We had a great time on Sunset Sails for a morning sail! The crew were a delight and the food was one of the best meals we had in Costa Rica. They’d be our first choice if we get the chance to go again
Highlight of my Trip

The Catamaran sail was literal perfection from start to finish! The pickup and drop off from our hotel was easy and stress free. Upon arrival to the port we were greeted by Minor our guide for the day and he was the best. He was informative, a great host and hilarious! The sail itself was a beautiful ride, on a perfect sunny morning. The best parts of the trip happened once we anchored down. We got to literally slide into the pacific ocean and after an hour or so of the most enjoyable swim in its warm waters, we ate the most delicious meal by the captain/chef. The drinks were refreshing and kept flowing through the sail. I can’t say how much I loved this experience. It was the highlight of my trip to Costa Rica.
Living La Vida Pura!

Our sunset catamaran trip was the perfect way to end our amazing Costa Rica trip. The catamaran was very nice, the crew was wonderful, and the views were spectacular! Minor and the rest of the staff made sure that the drinks were flowing, the music was playing and all the guests had everything they needed. The dinner was very good and the snorkeling & sliding were so much fun. We saw lots of fish, some scarlet macaws and even a sloth during our sail. We would definitely do this trip again!!

Kevin was the man 🤙🏻 Cali vibes
Great tour guide had a killer time with Jim and the crew. Great service and an overall great time.
Laura_T, Mar 2022
Super pretty boat tour! Swimming in the turquoise water and watching the sunset was the best part.
Didn’t see any animals, they didn’t provide me transportation home, and they switched me to a different tour last minute which is why I’m giving it 4 stars.
Megan_N, Mar 2022
Highly recommend the sunset sail! Probably one of the best experiences we have had so far in this location. Our guide Minor was incredibly kind and fun! The dinner, snacks and drinks were all delicious and did not disappoint!!! Awesome experience, highly recommend.
Beautiful Sunset Views!

Amazing service, food, and company. The crew was so thoughtful and took care of everyone very well. The food was delicious! Highly highly recommend!

The staff was courteous and professional. Minor, our guide, was engaging and fun. The coastline was spectacular and there was a perfect sunset. The captain turned the boat so that everyone could get a perfect photo. Food was good. So happy that it wasn't a loud party boat with pounding music and young people dancing around like on other boats we saw.
Great times, beautiful views
Genee_B, Mar 2022
The sunset was absolutely beautiful! The crew was accommodating, fun and emphasized safety. The meal was good! I would def recommend, also download a playlist and ask them to let you play if you are a good DJ 😉
Megan_E, Feb 2022
The crew was great! Dinner and cocktails were delicious. Sunset over the water was absolutely beautiful and we were lucky to see a whale and some dolphins as an unexpected bonus. Highly recommend.
Spectacular Sunset Cruise
Robert_K, Feb 2022
Our host, Minon, was a joy. The Captain steered us to wonderful sites and Minor and crew made sure everyone had drinks flowing. Sunset was spectacular
Great tour, highly recommend
Scott_Y, Feb 2022
Excellent tour. We saw whales on the tour—a mom and her baby. They did a couple of jumps out of the water which was amazing. The sunset was beautiful, and the food was excellent. Fish fillet was very tasty with good sides as well. The guide was very informative and engaging.

Thouroughly enjoyed all aspects of trip! Friendly and accommodating crew, great food(Mahi Mahi), lovely sunset. Liked the mango and other juices and the fresh pineapple! Our second time to do this!
Joisan_F, Feb 2022
