You didn't have a lot of space if you needed to stretch your legs so you were sort of stuck in one position.

Sunset with my baby
Daniel_D, Mar 2023
The boat ride was amazing. The snorkeling wasn’t the greatest but still the boat ride and the sunset was amazing. The open bar was definitely a plus and the crew was very accommodating. Lunch was delicious! I would definitely recommend doing it.
Over booked no where to sit
Kristy_D, Mar 2023
The cruise itself was pretty but they OVERBOOKED the cruise leaving people with NO where to sit ! Packed liked sardines ! Don’t bother to snorkel no fish at the location. If you don’t care about siting on the side of the deck and want food and drinks then I would say go for just that .
Okay way to see the Tamarindo coast
Thomas_M, Feb 2023
The overall trip was okay. The good - the meal was yummy, saw a few turtles, boat was in fine shape, and staff were nice. Could be improved - like many people have mentioned, there were no fish when snorkeling. Also, the boat anchored and let about 10 of us in the water, a minute later the boat started and moved 100 or so yards farther away from us without any warning. I'm a decent swimmer but waters were rough and it was a frustrating swim back given the boat's unexpected move and no fish.
Great day on the water
Robert_M, Feb 2023
Great trip!! Staff was first rate, never a wait for drinks and sunset was amazing. As a bonus we also saw a whale and her calf.
A perfect way to meet your new BFF
Madison_J, Jan 2023
We had such a fun afternoon on the cruise! The staff made it a memorable and exhilarating evening. We were able to swim in the ocean with blow up toys and paddle boards. The open bar was great and the lunch included was delicious. The staff and bartender were friendly and fun, it was definitely a party and we made some international friends!
Great outings with professionals and a very nice boat
Erik_T, Jan 2023
Great boat, even if there was a lot of people, it did not feel like it. All sails were out, very good Captain! The entire team was very professional and focused on the clients. The drinks were perfect and open bar. Sunset was very nice. One small constructive comments; the lunch should be a bit more varied with fish, not only chicken. Lots of chips, could have been more local. All in all, would redo it because of the class of the boat and it’s crew
Snorkel near tamarindo

Great Afternoon And Evening.
Kirk_W, Jan 2023
It was a wonderful, relaxing, day and evening. Most importantly the crew was super nice and helpful.
Highly recommend!
Laleh_S, Jan 2023
Enjoyable activity. Crew was amazing and made sure everyone was taken care of. I highly recommend for all ages!
Great trip
Stephanie_S, Jan 2023
We saw dolphins and turtles on this tour. The crew went out of the way to make sure that when someone pointed at a dolphin everyone got to see it even if we did go farther out than normal. Great experience for the whole family
Fabulous New Years Eve sunset boat cruise!
melissanelson3, Jan 2023
Our family had a fabulous time on the sunset boat cruise! The guys in charge did a great job and were entertaining! Food tasted wonderful and the views were incredible. We saw a whale and dolphins on our way to the snorkeling spot. A very relaxing afternoon soaking up the sun and views of Costa Rica!
Good Value, but Not Luxury, Calm, or High End
Mike_S, Dec 2022
We were expecting a small-group boat tour (maximum of 15 people), but instead there were at least 50-60 people crammed onto this boat. We managed to find a small space to sit and drop our things, which made the experience a bit more pleasant. The staff was fantastic, open bar was great, and the lunch was excellent. However, the music was quite terrible (very loud, almost club music vs. something more appropriate for a sunset cruise). The snorkeling was pointless (you couldn't see any fish or other wildlife), and it was annoying that they kept moving the boat as we attempted to swim back onto to. Would not recommend this if you're looking for a calm, relaxing afternoon -- more of a Las Vegas pool party scene.
Highly recommend

Beautiful excursion with an amazing crew and captain. On our way to our snorkeling and swimming destination, we saw dolphins and whales which was quite a spectacular surprise. Snorkeling and swimming was relaxing and refreshing. We jumped and dove into the water from the boat which was super fun! The food was just out of this world and the drinks were just what was needed to accompany this catamaran excursion. On our way back to our pickup and dropoff spot, we were treated with an amazing sunset.
Such an amazing...
Franklyn_S, Dec 2022
Such an amazing experience! The captain and crew were amazing! 10/10 would recommend! The only thing is that the life jackets were a little out of date... But other than that everything was such an amazing experience! The captain was really nice and made his way to talk to as many people as possible! The sunset was way better on their boat!
Fun day on the sunrise cruise!
Ruthie_Y, Dec 2022
This catamaran trip was so fun! We snorkeled around volcanic rock and saw plenty of fish. We also had a few dolphin sightings. The captain was friendly and we could tell he knew the waters very well. There were 72 people which seemed like a lot but the boat ended up being big enough for everyone.
More of a scenic cruise than a snorkel/sail.
Shannon_S, Dec 2022
The crew members were very friendly and attentive. The weather was wonderful and we even saw sea turtles and dolphins. The only issue I had was they never raised the sails while the other catamarans all around us had their raised. The snorkeling wasn’t great. It was rushed and where we stopped we had poor visibility. The food was excellent!
Good value
Darren_D, Dec 2022
For me it was a good value. We had dolphins swimming with us for a couple of minutes which made the trip! With that said the drinks were good and the service was great. Food was decent. The only negative was the snorkeling which was not existent. Visibility was ten feet.
Much fun
Sean_M, Sept 2022
Me and my wife had a fun time on this sunset cruise. I chose not to go snorkeling but got off on the island and got a chance to see a whale in the ocean. Crew was very nice and the food was tasty. Monkey Head Island is a sight to see!!!
Romantic & Relaxing
Maggie_K, Sept 2022
We really enjoyed this sailboat experience. It was romantic and relaxing. The crew was friendly and did a great job of finding wildlife like sea turtles, dolphins, and whales. Only drawback was that we thought the snorkeling would be different. We couldn’t see anything past our hands in the murky water so it was disappointing. Even with that being said, it was definitely worth the money.
