Our snorkeling/sunset cruise with Marlin Del Rey was amazing. From the polite and very helpful crew to the amazing scenery I would highly recommend these guys for your vacation. Can't beat free drinks and a great lunch spread either!

This cruise is a great value. The staff was very attentive to every detail, from safety to enjoyment this was a great full afternoon of sailing, snorkling, eating and drinking. Ken worked hard to make sure all the guests had a safe and fun time.

At first glance you might say catamaran cruise and think it's pretty run of the mill, but Marlin Del Rey is a cut above the rest. First off, the staff is awesome. They are insanely friendly and really helpful. The boat is huge and the ride is generally relaxing. You'll get a good mix of people on this boat so... More

I went out with Marlin del Rey for their sunset sailing tour for the first time with a group of friends. I had been on other tours but this one was WAY better. Every aspect was better, from the boat itself to the food. But what really made the tour was Felipe and the staff! They took an awesome tour... More

Great and fun day! What To Bring: Sunblock and apply often, towel, backpack, bathing suit, change of clothes, camera and have a blast! You do have to get in the water to walk out to a boat that will bring you out to the actual boat. That's why I recommend a backpack for all your stuff - put it over... More

My friends and I came on the boat for a last hurrah together in Costa and we had the best time thanks to Felipe! The staff is just awesome and it's a really great way to spend an afternoon in Costa Rica. From the light lunch to the delicious cocktails to the sunset and paddleboarding- we had a blast!! Thanks...

Myself and my husband had a great day on this trip which was very well run. The crew made the day really as they attended to everyone's needs and made sure you always had a drink in your hand. The food was pretty standard but it was just fine a mix of chicken dips and chips and plenty of fruit.... More

Great sunset tour. Fun crew, great drinks. Food was OK, nothing special. Sunset was amazing. Fun ocean swim. We did not snorkel. They anchored too far from the "private beach" which was beautiful but we could not reach it. That was disappointing. Use lots of sunscreen or stay inside.
