We took the snorkling and dolphintrip withe these guys and it was really great! We saw a lot of dolphins, 3 turtles, balloonfish, and even a whale with baby!!! Don't take the cheaper tours that are on the beach because they are not insured, have no licence and no lifevests. And above all, those little boats were really chasing the... More

We booked a snorkeling and kayak combo through Anywhere Costa Rica and had a great time. The guide was friendly and kind to ocean newbies and knew a lot about the wildlife. The whole thing was centered around our (and the other couple's) schedule. There was no agenda of we have to hurry to be back by a certain time... More

My 9 year old son and I went kayaking and snorkeling with Alex. We had a great time and saw many animals--thanks to Alex's keen eye and willingness to pick up rocks to find an octupus and hold a puffer fish. We had delicious pineapple sitting with iguanas and saw a turtle swimming in the surf. The equipment was great... More

Luckily we had our phones and pulled up the email. They quickly tried to pull the tour together. They drove us to the "pick up point" which was a random grocery... More

We did both the standup paddleboarding and the kayaking(canoe) and definitely enjoyed both. We also snorkeled both days and had a wonderful time. Our guides were great!

Awesome company to use for stand up paddleboarding in Costa Rica! The guide showed up on time, was super helpful and we had a great time. They got the pictures to us on time and the whole experience turned out great.
