Was in Costa Rica the last week of March and first week of April. Took the afternoon sunset cruise on the Marlin Del Rey. Fun, relaxing cruise. Clean boat. Fabulous crew - very friendly, fun to talk to about the country, very hard working - Ken, Alex, Taca, Hellen and Yasser. Fun snorkeling and spotted some cool fish. Great meal... More

I'd *highly* recommend this catamaran cruise and snorkeling experience for families. We were a group of 7 with kids and everyone had a good time, no one got bored. Captain Taca and the crew (Ken, Alex, Yasser) were exceedingly friendly, professional and attentive. The boat and snorkeling equipment seemed new and well-taken care of . There was lots of room...

Just got back from a trip to Costa Rica where we were lucky enough to get the chance to spend an afternoon on the Marlin III. It was a fun, relaxing cruise out to our snorkeling spot complete with sting rays, flying fish and dolphins swimming under the boat! The snorkeling visibility wasn't great but it didn't even matter.

The drinks were strong too and not premixed which was good/surprising. Lunch was just snacks guac/salsa/chips/ fruit.... More

Highly recommend a sunset cruise on the Marlin del Ray, the staff are great, the lunch was fresh and healthy and they made us drinks all afternoon. It was quite a windy day so the water was a bit murky for snorkeling but we had fun jumping off the boat and swimming around :) Definitely a highlight of our trip... More

The Marlin Del Ray crew is absolutely amazing!! This was my 3rd time sailing on the Marlin Del Ray and it won't be my last. The catamaran is top notch and there is so much room to enjoy the day. The food and drinks were wonderful - thank you to Mama Helen for all the delicious pina coladas, daiquiris and... More

The second to last day of our trip, my husband and I decided to take the catamaran cruise. Best decision! There was probably around 40-50 people on the boat and it was a blast. Open bar served by 'Momma Hellen', drinks were delicious! And all of the crew, Alex, Yasser, and Ben were friendly and made the experience great. Taca... More
