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! « less

We originally met Heather, manager for Seabird Excursions, totally by fluke. She offered to pick us up at the bus terminal in town (Playas Del Coco) upon arriving home from San Jose on a bus! What a doll.....little did I know at the time that I would book a tour on the Seabird for my husband's birthday on May 18th.... More

We went this morning on a Snorkel / Sail aboard Sea Bird with Captain Sebastian, his son and nephew - it was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the beach ( Egg Beach) with the two sea caves to explore and the great view from the cliff; when the snorkeling wasn't so good there ( murky) we went to a second spot... More

The entire crew of Sea Bird Sailing was great - good communication from the owner, Heather. Our captain and his son were so fantastic! Thanks to Sebastian. We had an unlimited supply of very tasty drinks. The crew took time to point out giant sea turtles. The best thing is there were only 3 other people on the boat. We... More

Vow Renewal aboard the Sea Bird! On April 7 2014 2 wives decided to surprise their husbands with a Full day privately chartered sailboat and a Vow Renewal ceremony for both couples! Heather, the owner, helped with all the arrangements prior to our arrival in Costa Rica. Heather was magnificent! Without her we could not have done this. The crew... More

My mom and two sisters came to Playas del Coco for a holiday to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday. The owner of the place we were staying at (Rancho Armadillo) recommended a snorkel/sail with seabird and I am so glad we booked a sail. Seabird was great to deal with, responding promptly to emails and we were able to have... More

We have been on many snorkeling/boating trips throughout the Caribbean, and this was by far the BEST trip of its kind. Sebastian and his crew were so attentive that we were never without drinks or food throughout the morning. We felt quite spoiled! The snorkeling was great, swimming was good too, the trip to the beach and up the cliff... More

Heather and Sebastian, I can't thank you enough. Your crew is perfect. The sailing was wonderful. The sunset was awesome. I don't know how Sebastian was able to line us up with the rocks and the sunset. I said another good bye to Cath. The dolphins added to the experience. I will recommend your tour to everyone.
