We were in Tamarindo for two weeks and one catamaran trip was not enough. Took the morning cruise first and then the afternoon cruise later. Saw whales (that is right WHALES) after Capt. Jed was patient and the other cruises went right past these wonderful creatures! Truly amazing as they surfaced within 30 feet of the boat. AWESOME. The dolphin... More

Had a wonderful time,food was limited and not great,but,what the hell it was fun.More of a booze cruise thing which is cool with me.Only thing that was a little discomforting is a request for a tip.Just an opinion(which we all have) but,after paying $85.00 for a 4 hour fun cruise just seemed a little cheezy.Seems like the boat owner should...

We had a fantastic time! The boat is great, the crew was excellent, and the all around service was outstanding. Beautiful views and a great snorkeling spot with excellent guidance. You can't ask for much more on a sailing trip. Dylan and the team took great care of us every step of the way. You won't be disappointed!

The catamaran was in excellent condition. The staff was awesome. They were professional and experienced. They were very attentive. The snorkeling was amazing. The crew went above and beyond... More

We recently stayed at Riu Palace, Guanacaste in Costa Rica for our daughter's Sr. spring break. Dylan did an amazing job of coordinating 3 days of adventure for our large group with the help of native expert, Javier. The early morning boat cruise into Palo Verde National Park was unforgetable! The expressions on our girls faces were priceless as they... More

We sailed on the Hibiscus in February while staying in Playa Langosta. Captain Rudd and his crew made the sailing experience superb. They were attentive to everyone's needs - keeping all glasses filled! When the other sailing vessels that departed at the same time were motoring, the Hibiscus crew was under sail for the maximum enjoyment of the passengers. The... More

I was a bit reluctant when my husband suggested a catamaran trip, I had got used to lazing by the pool at the hotel or on the beach. I am so glad he persisted. This was by far the highlight of my trip. The staff were awesome, music was great, food and drinks fantastic. I don't drink, so one of... More
