best experience i’ve ever done!
Erin_W, Sept 2023
BEST tour i’ve been on this whole trip. the boat tour in the morning was just absolutely breathtaking, and by far the best tour we have done. we had around 3 hours on the boat i think, touring around the stunning coast of quepos seeing brown footed boobies flying over the boat, and even a mother humpback whale and her calf which was an incredible sight. the snorkeling was insane too, they provide all the equipment including flippers and take us to a fish infused paradise, i have never swam with fish before and it was amazing. lunch is included which was fish with veg and rice and unlimited drinks all day. absolutely incredible trip, 10/10 recommend. definitely book this if you book anything while you are in Manuel Antonio

The snorkeling was amazing and the overall staff was super friendly and wanted everyone to just have a good time! 100% recommended this company! Minor was amazing!
Excellent trip, highly recommended!
Laura_P, July 2023
Excellent staff, drinks were great, the food was delicious, and jumping off of the top of the slide into the water was so much fun. Our host went snorkeling with us and he wasn’t kidding when he said the fish know him! An entire school followed him around so we could watch them.
Wonderful sailing tour
Sandy_O, June 2023
We had an amazing tour! The crew was wonderful, fun, and informative. Our family enjoyed being on their well equipped catamaran, loved the slide, lunch, drinks and sailing. Seeing Manuel Antonio from the ocean was beautiful. Great tour for families or anyone who wants to have fun.
Beautiful day on the water

The best
Michael_H, June 2023
The snorkeling, slide and lunch. The crew was amazing . We loved how it was children friendly. And no matter what we always felt relaxed
Bad food, drinks, and snorkeling.... ended the tour over an hour early...
Danny_C, June 2023
Did not live up to our expectations. 1. The open bar consisted of only a very cheap/gross rum that could be mixed with a handful of mixers. 2. The snorkeling area they brought us to was extremely cloudy and you could see a few fish but definitely not dozens of species of fish, dolphins, turtles etc. 3. The food provided was very bland and almost tasted microwaved. If all of this wasnt bad enough they brought us back very early as a 2 guests were not feeling well so all 25 guests were back to the dock by 4:30 which is where they gave us the diner. They kept saying not to rush but also said to be to the van in 15 minutes to be transported back. The "sunset" sails tour ended about an hour before the actual sunset.
Underwhelming snorkeling and water encounter experience
Karen_K, May 2023
Let me start off by saying that the crew is incredible.. they are such lovely and lively people who were a pleasure to be around with. Even the food was delicious but that’s not why we signed up for this excursion… Now, the downside is that while we did see some beautiful scenery, there is only about 45 mins of swimming. The further downside is that “snorkeling” was just some fish that you could hardly see beneath the water.. I expected more lava rock (as mentioned to me upon setting up the reservation) and many more fish. Even for a beginner level snorkel, this was extremely underwhelming. The crew has slides and some diving set up, but the intention of the excursion was to snorkel and see wildlife and we saw almost nothing. There was 13 of us, and all of us felt similarly, which is why this review is relevant. Maybe there is clearer water on the Caribbean side but the pacific side was underwhelming. It wasn’t bad, but it just wasn’t great.
Great experience
Mara_B, May 2023
Such a fun experience with uncle minor as our guide! Definitely recommend booking this boat tour, even if you see no whales/dolphins etc it’s still very worth it to just hangout on a boat for a few hours & eat a delicious meal!
Enjoyable day on the water
Denise_M, Apr 2023
The crew were very friendly and picked us up on time. The food for lunch was great and we were offered plenty of drinks. We was a enjoyable time snorkeling and did see several small fish. I also enjoyed going down the water slide on the back of the boat. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins or whales because of the time of year. Just a side note, this may not be good for people who are looking for advanced snorkeling as you have to keep a life preserve on at all times and are kept to a very small area.
enjoyable afternoon
tesaunders22, Apr 2023
enjoyable, decent food and nice way to see the sunset. The guides were friendly and enjoyable. Calm activity
Nice afternoon
MARTIN_M, Mar 2023
Picked up by a v nice taxi driver. Pleasant staff looked after us very well, including a fresh meal. Unfortunately no sea mammals to be seen, but some turtles made an appearance. Weather deteriorated so no sunset (rain😃)
Great experience cruising with Sunset Sail Tours!
Nieves_D, Mar 2023
Our family of 5 booked the afternoon cruise. Initially we were a bit disappointed that the catamaran was fully booked, therefore, we were booked on the mono-hull boat instead. This turned out to be even better because there were fewer people, more personalized service, and more comfortable seating/lounging. Our guide, Mal, was funny, informative, and very attentive to all our wishes. Captain was super skilled at navigating along a very rocky coast, making us feel safe, and Jesus, our bartender and chef was outstanding. The meal he prepared was phenomenal, cocktails were excellent and ever flowing, and the snorkeling and sight-seeing exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend!
Beautiful and Fun Sunset Tour
Kerry_S, Mar 2023
My husband and I had an amazing time on this cruise! The crew were friendly, the food and drinks were delicious, and the snorkeling was fun. We saw alot of tropical fish while snorkeling and the crew pointed out birds and points of interest during the trip. Highly recommend!

Two words: DO IT! Minor, Deigo and the captain were amazing. We even got to see a humpback whale and her calf the closest we’ve ever seen! It was an incredible afternoon with awesome people and it was one of the best experiences of our lives. Gracias! Pura Vida!!
