Owner description: Why choose Sea Bird Sailing Excursions over the others? Sea Bird is a luxurious, romantic, classic sailboat strong enough to sail around the world but is here, at your service in the entire area of the Gulf of Papagayo, to take your group on a unique, customized excursion, especially suited for YOU. We never over pack the boat on "group" tours, and private tours are a very affordable option if you prefer to have the whole boat to yourself, along with our captain and crew of course. We are a family business, enjoying our lives and livelihood, and this is our only boat. We are not a big corporation bringing in busloads of tourists to board our ship. We focus on smaller groups and customized service that you will surely notice while we're out sailing. Our highly experienced captain wears the boat like a glove and the crew work together like a well oiled machine as they raise the sails, keep your glasses full and pass around snacks as you sail to the best snorkeling spot based on the conditions that day, or as you sail in to the sunset.No two excursions are alike. Why? This is a sailboat, so we go with the wind, and I assure you the captain WILL raise the sails! There are beautiful private beaches and all kinds of snorkel spots in every direction, no matter which way the wind blows. The wind does not blow the same direction every day, so why motor to the same spot day after day? Too many gorgeous options, so hoist the sails! Let's glide across the Pacific in style! The crew of Sea Bird Sailing Excursions snaps photos throughout your tours and upload them to Picasa albums where you can download all your photos...COMPLIMENTARY, and in original size, as a gift to you!Contact Sea Bird Sailing Excursions DIRECTLY through email or phone and mention this site to receive a 10% discount off the total rate of your excursion. Our rates are already lower than the competition and this is how you can save even more. We look forward to taking you on a trip that you and your family will remember forever!

We chose the Sea Bird over the other companies because by its sheer size the boat can only hold up to 15 people. We have a small child, we are quiet sort of people. While there is plenty of alcohol served, the atmosphere on a boat of this size is de facto intimate, friendly and relaxed. Captain Sebastian is a... More

First off, I have not been sailing like this for decades, and I loved it. As a young man, I owned a sail boat, a small one, that mostly specialized in tipping over, and at times, sinking below the surface. None of those problems here! After being picked up on the beach at Playa Hermosa, we motored out to a... More

Booked a private charter for our family at the close of our vacation for a sunset sail....We had an excellent time. This was my second trip aboard the Sea Bird--and first time to do a private charter. I highly recommend doing a private charter it is well worth a little extra for the personal service! Boat is comfortable and with... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful half-day on the water on the Sea Bird. This beautiful sail boat is very comfortable (even has hammocks to stretch out on!) with an extremely knowledgeable and attentive crew. Our glasses were always full with your choice of beer, rum, juice, water or, for those adventurous types, chili guaro -- a variety of... More

Seabird is a fantastic sailing/snorkeling company. Definitely recommend them. We booked extremely last minute (ie emailed them at 7PM night before for a half day morning snorkel/sail trip the next day). I wasn't expecting to hear back in time to set up the trip but Heather got back to us that night and we lucked out that they had availability... More

Do yourself a favor spend a morning or afternoon with Sea Bird Sailing. Our day with Sebastian and his crew was filled with sun, snorkeling, swimming, sailing, and good conversation. I am not typically a last-minute person, but this was our first full day in Costa Rica, and we were so grateful when we emailed Heather the night before and... More

My husband and I had a great time on the Seabird Sailboat on a half day morning cruise. The drinks (champagne, sangría, water, beer, etc.) and snacks are served freely throughout the cruise by friendly crew members. Snorkeling in the ocean was fun. We even got to tour a cave on the beach. Excellent value for the money!

Meet group on COCO beach which was 30 minute shuttle from Riu Guanacaste for sunset sail. Email for plans was easy and even meet the corresponding person at beach as we... More

We had an amazing time! The crew was GREAT! The snorkeling was really good; our guide pointed out the fishes and even brought various inverts up close for easy viewing. Snorkeling equipment was real good (no leaks!!), the snacks and Beverages (especially the Sangria) were great. We saw dolphins along our way to the snorkeling site and beach. Will definitely...
