We went snorkeling in kayaks. This was the only excursion of the three we tried during the week (paddle boarding in the mangrove channel, surfing at Playa Nosara) where the guides were on time and organized. They provided us with a link to photos they took of the excursion, which could be downloaded free of charge. They were knowledgeable and... More

We were on a yoga retreat and decided to add kayaking and snorkeling to our trip. It was a perfect morning to enjoy the spectacular water and sun. The BlueStarfish was incredible. We received a link to dropbox the next day with photos. Thank you for a wonderful adventure.

We paid a little more for a private boat to do the tour and well worth it! Roberto was very friendly and honest to deal with at the Carrillo Adventure office. We visited the other tour offices and felt very at ease with Roberto. Our family (5) wanted flexibility to do what and when we wanted. Capitano Darren was perfect... More

This is a great activity with an excellent guide. We are a middle aged couple. This is a moderately strenuous tour with just enough exercise to get you out of the vacation laziness. 😎 Berny speaks very good English and is a highly trained guide with very good knowledge about local flora and fauna. We were lucky to have him... More

We had a fantastic morning with Daren and Bryan on our trip. We saw turtles, dolphins and even a whale, which no one was expecting. The guys gave us a really great time. So if you are in the area and looking for a dolphin tour I can highly recommend them!

Bryan and his partner gave us enjoyable 2½ hours in the ocean near the Chora Island. First time kayaking in an ocean and a bit afraid of the waves and falling from the kayak. Nevertheless, that didn't happen :) Snorkeling was fun as always although we didn't see too many fishes nor other creatures in fact. And unfortunately, one of... More

My wife and I did the river kayaking trip today with these guys. I have never seen a more professional group of people from the actively involved owners to our guide Bryan who was friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. As an added bonus we got to watch newly hatched sea turtles being released to the ocean and they did not ask... More
