We had a great day out with Almaco and highly recommend this activity! There was 4 of us, 2 couples, and did the full day beach BBQ on the Alcyone boat. We truely could do whatever our hearts desired whenever we wanted! We started out by heading out to sea because they received word that whales were breaking the surface... More

I first booked a scuba trip with Almaco, great 2 tank trip, very relaxed diving with Leo dive master and Alan (boat skipper). We organised a 6 hr trip just boat only, no scuba, a few days later and had a fabulous day. Lots of wildlife, deserted beaches. Snorkelling, stand up paddle boarding, water skiing included. Also a trip looking... More

We are a large family with lots of kids...chartered Nai'a (dolphin) for a full day with beach bbq. And what a day it was! We saw dolphins and mating sea turtles within 5 minutes of leaving the shore. The crew was phenomenal, catering to both kids and adults. There were a variety of unlimited beverages on board, along with some... More

Three couples did a full day trip with Almaco and we had the time of our lives! The morning started with fishing where we caught beautiful Mahi Mahi that the driver proceeded to clean and serve us fresh right on the boat - the men were in heaven! We then went to a bay for some beautiful snorkeling, relaxed on... More

We traveled to Costa Rica with 2 other families and booked a deluxe beach BBQ with 2 boats for our group of 14 (6 adults and 8 kids). We were picked up at Playa Ocotal for a ride around Monkey Head Island and a cruise to look for animals. We saw huge rays swimming below the surface, smaller eagle rays... More

Our half day fishing charter was so memorable. We boarded a very clean boat, packed with snacks and beverages, right off the beach of our hotel (Andaz Peninsula Papagayo). My 21 & 15 year old sons had an amazing 1/2 day of fishing....red snapper was abundant! I believe they would have loved for a monster fish to bite, but overall... More

We did the full day charter last week on the Nai'a with Almaco and it was the perfect trip! We had 4 adults and 5 kids (ages 7-15) , and we were picked up at the beach at our resort, which was extremely convenient. The day started with a short trip and then the kids went tubing which they could... More

We were in Costa Rica this past week with dear friends and booked the all day boat tour with Almaco. Our boat crew included Chipopa, Jorge and Alex. They were fantastic and so knowledgeable about the area, they made us comfortable and kept us learning while having fun! We did some fishing and caught some Red Snapper and Grouper. Next,... More

Knowledgeable, interesting and charming host. Snorkeling in warm water was disappointing only because few fishes there. Saw dolphins, a huge sea turtle and the Temisque River estuary too. Surely one of the best things we did in Costa Rica.

My family had wonderful day with the crew of N'aia of Almaco Diving. The beautiful boat picked us up at our beach in front of the Andaz hotel and took us for a six hour adventure in which we saw multiple dolphins (which the captain managed to entice to swim and jump in our wake for about 10 minutes while...
