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

It was my 30th birthday and I was in Costa Rica, so it really couldn't get any better. However, this was a very fun trip especially if you are with a group. There is music, unlimited booze, sunset was amazing and they dropped anchor and had all gear for snorkeling. When we finished snorkeling they laid out a spread of... More

This was the highlight of my Costa Rican vacation! First of all, I absolutely love sailing and couldn't wait to start the tour. Let's just say...it blew my expectations out of the water! The sunset was beautiful, the guacamole was the best I've ever had, the crew was extremely friendly and professional, the drinks were delicious, the snorkeling was outstanding... More

This was a very fun part of our trip! My husband and I went on the Sunset Catamaran Tour, we went past the islands and stopped at a tiny beach area where everyone snorkeled or swam for a good while. Open Bar-need I say more!? The lunch was surprisingly good-bbq chicken, chips, guacamole, cookies, fruit. I've been on other catamarans... More

Great day on the water, the water was awesome, snorkeling was so-so, you never know what your going to get on the pacific side. Lao, Ben, Yassar, Taca and all the rest of the crew were very attentive and friendly, the service was great. The thing I liked the most, the amount of people they had would have fit on... More

We enjoyed a great afternoon sailing, snorkeling and watching the sunset. The crew, food and full beverage bar were all fantastic. it is a good value for the money. Villa Sol resort set it up for us, which included pick up in Playa Hermosa. Lucky for us...there were only about 20 + guests...so plenty of front deck room on the... More

Yasser, Taca, Hellen, Alex, and Ben were all so fantastic. The sail was amazing, the drinks were great, and we had the best time ever. I highly recommend this as an activity in Tamarindo!

My wife and I loved the Marlin Del Rey catamaran tour. The weather was perfect and the sunset was beautiful. I would recommend the evening tour for the sunset. The crew was very friendly and laid back. After sailing north up the coast they anchored and let us swim in the water. The water wasn't great for snorkeling that day... More
