I had the opportunity to get out with the guys from Marlin Del Rey as part of the 2014 ROAR Retreat. I am an avid sailor and traveler myself, so I was skeptical of a charter trip, having been on several sorry "booze cruises". This was entirely different. The BOAT: spotless, spacious, comfortable, clever. The selection of open spaces was... More

The crew of the Marlin III was friendly, entertaining, and helpful. I loved the buffet breakfast and the fresh pina coladas, and the 80's music that the crew sang and danced to. The crew went above and beyond, guiding our group of 30 women out in the water as we snorkeled or paddleboarded. They even dove to the bottom to... More

Had a great time, on a large boat with very few people!!! Will do this again in a heartbeat. Sunset was beautiful. It was great to meet people from all over the world.

My husband and I took the tour on Sept 11 and it was a beautiful day. We sailed on time but our group of 50 can be crowded but it is a big enough for all of us. Sine the captain sailed the catamaran in a slower pace we were able to seat on the top wig very good view.... More

My husband and I booked this excursion with the Swiss Travel representative at our resort Riu Palace. We were picked up on time and the van dropped the group off at a restaurant and souvenir shop in Coco Beach. We waited around on the sidewalk for a while before one of the Marlin guys said the boat would come to... More

I am in my late 50's and when it comes to sunset sailing trips, I can say I have been there and done that. But Marlin Del Ray was special. First of all, with a group of 30, there was room for us to sit in any location of the boat. If you want to be in the front, back... More

Marlin is definitely the best sunset & sailing tour in the state. The staff is super profesional and always open to assist you during the tour. The music, friendly people & open bar combine very well with the sunsets making a memorable experience during your trip to Costa Rica. Marlin del Rey is highly recommended and must be in your...

We were a little concerned with the storms in the area - but the crew assured us that they would navigate to a place where the weather was good - which they did. We had about 30 on our boat. We had a good time - the team onboard were friendly and fun - interacting with the guests - letting... More

We booked this tour though our agent and the write up sounded like fun. From the time we arrived at the beach to the time the crew dropped us back off it was non-stop fun. The cruise was very beautiful and very personal (only 14 people on our trip). The crew pointed out birds, landmarks and even caught (and released)... More

We took the sunset tour with our three and five year old kids and all of us loved it! The kids loved it because they drank their weight in sprite. The crew were accomodating even to the smallest passengers and every time I turned around they were checking on our kids. It was a peaceful ride with a bit of... More
