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.

This is a good tour if you don't mind 75+ people on board. The crew were very attentive. The snorkeling area was ok. The food offered was chips and dips, pasta salad, and fruit. Open bar.

This was an amazing way to finish our Valentine's Day celebration in Costa Rica. The crew was attentive and made sure everyone had a blast. The snorkeling wasn't the greatest, but the beach was! We were on a secluded white sand beach that was only accessible by boat, and we were the only group there. The guacamole was fabulous, and... More

Our three couples decided to end our week in Tamarindo with the sunset sail on the Marlin Del Rey, and we're glad we did ! The snorkeling visibility was not good, but that was beyond the crew's capabilities; being in the water was fund. We had a great weather and the food and beverage on the charter was great, as...

We took this tour to celebrate the engagement of two friends, we were a big group, so the whole vessel and its amenities were dedicated to us. The service was great, since the very first moment you arrive they all are giving their best for you to enjoy and be safe during the entire trip. My friends, my wife and... More

This review is long overdue. My boyfriend and another couple went on this tour in JANUARY of 2014 and wanted to rave about how amazing the crew, Unlimited booze, food and of course beauty of Costa Rica was. "El jefe" (chief/boss) was our bartender and she knew how to get the party started. We're a group that likes to drink... More

Going on this boat was like going out on one your friends boats, that is how welcome all the staff made us feel! One of the staff made some of the food which was all very fresh and delicious! All of the drinks were tasty too. The snorkeling was fun and some of the staff snorkels with you and drives... More

We booked the Marlin Del Rey for our wedding party (35 of us) as an alternative to a traditional rehearsal dinner. Our group ranged from five children (ages 6-13) to our parents who are getting close to 70 years young (with most of us in the 30-40 year old range). The boat came to us at Playa Conchal and we...
