We cruised out for an hour and anchored for snorkeling for roughly an hour. After that there was food, chips, guacamole, salsa, macaroni salad, cookies. We left... More

We had a wonderful time on the Marlin del Rey! The service was fantastic, the drinks were top notch, the food was delicious, and the experience was worth every penny. I would highly recommend this to people of all ages. We saw dolphins, birds and lots of fish.

We thought this was a great way to spend a day and a good value. We were surprised that others described it as "pricey". The boat is very well tended and all of the employees are courteous and conscientious. We were taken to a private beach and got to see a school of rays flapping around at the water surface.... More

This was a perfect way to explore the Pacific! Everything was included in the price...drinks/alcohol and food. And the food was amazing!! They called it a snack...but there was salad, bbq chicken, and the most amazing guacamole and salsa. Also, they provide snorkel gear, noodles, and paddle boards for your enjoyment. The crew was very friendly as well! It's a... More

We spent a fabulous day with the crew of the Marlin Del Rey Sailing Tours just recently. We were in Costa Rica for a rewards trip and the company rented a private tour as an activity for the day. We started off with a continental breakfast, sailed leisurely to a snorkeling spot, played in the water for a while, had... More

My husband and I were part of a larger group of folks who spent a nice morning on the boat sunning ourselves, listening to great tunes, snorkeling, and playing in the water. I found the boat crew to be hard working and very safety conscious. They spent a lot of time keeping the floor dry so that we didn't slip.... More

I highly recommend this tour agency in Playa del Coco. Brett and Gretal were both professional and friendly. While in Costa Rica we booked 2 tours with them. The Sunset catamaran cruise was a blast. The staff friendly, helpful and very concerned with your safety and enjoyment. The food and music was good and the free bar top-shelf. Well worth... More

I initially thought that the Catamaran Tour was expensive but with the beautiful boat, delicious food and drinks, great tunes and enough snorkelling gear for everyone on board, it ended up being great value for money.
