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!

I sailed with the Sea Bird crew in February of 2012. It was an absolutely delightful day and easily one of the best and most memorable activities from the trip. It was fun, relaxing, and exciting all at the same time! If you're on vacation in the area, this is a must-do!

Had a great time Heather and Sebastian went over and beyond our exception. The boat is so nice. This is my 6th time sailing on the Sea Bird and will not be the last. Jason

The weather was looking a little iffy a couple of hours before the trip, but it ended up being a gorgeous day for sailing and snorkeling. Sebastian and his hardworking young crew took great care of us and the conversation was lively. Fresh fruit, chips and salsa, mango mimosas, and a little reggae music, oh yeah. Our stop at Playa...

A truly wonderful experience on the water of C.R.!This team (Heather and Captain Jack) and delightful staff know their stuff! They have the experience, the details and the most up to date snorkel equipment.

We booked a private all day tour for 6 of us during our trip to Coco. We had a wonderful day with Sebastian & the crew. My boyfriend and I were happy because we were able to practice our Spanish with them and talk about how much we loved Nicaragua (we'd spent 3 weeks traveling in Nica a couple years... More

What a great day. Heather met us on the beach Playa coco, where the captain Sebastian and his son where there to take us to the sailboat via a little motor boat. Sebastian, his son and nephews absolutely spoiled us from the time we sat foot on the boat. They met us with a shot of their local drink cacique... More

My wife and I and another couple booked the Sea Bird for the all day tour. The day started with some rain, which evolved into a cloudy but rain-free day. The good news is we did not have worry as much about getting burned. The bad news is the snorkeling would have been better had it been sunny and the... More

Our party of 5 booked the Sea Bird for a private all day tour on April 13. I had emailed Heather 2 weeks before our arrival & she responded to my emails very quickly. She met us on the beach prior to the tour. We were picked up & shuttled to the sailboat by 2 of the crew. We left... More

Our family of six booked the Sea Bird for a morning cruise. Heather and her staff were great. We sailed for a while, snorkeled for while, walked the beach, explored couple of caves and then climbed a ridge to get a fantastic view of the ocean. We then sailed back. Freddie offered up a couple of trays of some very... More
