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

Took an afternoon sailing tour with Mariln Del Rey. The crew, Leo, Ben, Alex and Yasser were great. Open bar and food, homemade, made the trip a good value for the dollar. The humpback whales, sea turtles, and tiger shark made it an excellent value for the dollar.

Our group was booked on this catamaran as part of our tour package to Costa Rica. Ironically, we were not even aware of the booking until we arrived in Tamarindo. We had taken another catamaran tour out of Manuel Antonio last year and I was not really looking forward to another trip since I was not overly impressed with our... More

My family of 9 chose the sunset sail tour for our first Costa Rican excursion. Unfortunately, a bad storm cut the trip short, but the staff was top notch and made all efforts to please everyone on board! I became sea sick, so take your Dramamine even if you don't think you need it! Having said that, the crew was... More
