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 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

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
