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!

Evening trip

The snorkeling was fun. Not crowded. Refreshments provided and the return trip with the sails up and motor off. The sunset was beautiful

It simply IS THE BEST! I went on my second full-day sail on 2/19 and it was great once again! The beach, the food and the crew are delightful. Sebastian has wonderful command of the boat and his crew, and he is gracious and safety-conscious as well. Heather makes wonderful food and the crew provide charming service. This is a... More

Went on my second sailing excursion aboard the Sea Bird this year, yesterday. It was a fantastic all day trip to a beautiful secluded beach where we had a fantastic BBQ on the beach. The food, once again, was top notch! The snorkeling was good and the sunset sail home was phenomenal. Captain Sebastian and crew are top notch. Not... More

The sunset cruise aboard the Sea Bird was amazing! There were only 7 us on the boat which made it much more fun. The captain and crew were so welcoming. Our drink glasses were never empty and the Chili guara shots were quite an experience! We saw stingrays jumping out of the water and some dolphins. And the sunset was... More

A simply magnificent experience today on board the Sea Bird. Refreshing breeze as we sat under the hot sun. Fabulous. The crew was excellent and knowledgeable, And the positioning of the ship just as the sun set. . . .breath-taking. A highlight of our trip. Don't miss this!

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!

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
