Almaco's private customized boat tours are a great way to experience Costa Rica from the ocean’s point of view. For almost a decade we have been designing dynamic tours for small groups and families who want a little bit of everything while out on the water. We offer snorkeling, sport fishing, scuba diving (and instruction), surf trips (and instruction), standup paddling, sunset tours, and unforgettable full day beach barbeque tours with delicious gourmet food.

Great 1/2 day

We fished, snorkeled, wakeboarded and subwinged. What an excellent morning. The crew was great, the boat was clean, and they kept us well-hydrated and fed. Thx!

We had a captain and 2 crew members. We rented the boat for 4 hours and they said "ok what do you want to do". My boys, 9-17, wanted to tube, ski, wake board and subwing and they did. The crew got in water to help the boys get up wake boarding, they were asking if we wanted water, snacks... More

My husband, 9 year old, and I just spent two weeks in Costa Rica. One of the highlights was definitely our half day on the boat Almaco. The boat trip was amazing: we caught fish (my 9 year old's first catch ever!), saw dolphins breach and play, paddle boarded in a secluded lagoon, snorkeled with dozens of types of fish,... More

We started off taking a half day ocean trip with Captain Allen and crew Guayo and Owen. We represented 2 families. What we like most is we could customized our adventure. Toured around Peninsula de Papagayo. Ended up snorkeling, waterskiing, wake boarding, Subwinging and tubing. It was an awesome water day in Costa Rica. Our crew was accommodating and so... More

We took a half day Ocean Discovery tour with Almaco on the Nai'a and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip (and we did a lot of excursions). Rolbin, Wilbur and Alan were an excellent crew and we loved the fact that we could do everything at our own pace and that there were so many options!... More

We went to two dive sites (Palmares and Virador). The captain Michi and the dive master Chipopa were very good. The problem we had was that the equipment we rented was not the right size (Suite and BCD) and fins were pretty bad (and there was some current).

We had Rolbin and Mario as our guides for a whole day on the water. Mario was a very experienced and safe captain and Rolbin was the perfect guide for our three adventurous boys. We boated right up next to a humpback whale family (mom, dad and baby) and Rolbin even jumped in the water get an underwater GoPro video... More
