We took the sunset tour departing from Playa Coco.We had time to try stand up paddleboarding and snorkelling when we reached our destination. The staff was awesome. The food and drinks were delicious.

Sold this excursion from our Air Canada rep since we love to snorkel! Overall, disappointing. It's sold as a snorkeling trip which in my honest opinion, it isn't. It is however, a sailing to and from a beautiful beach with an open bar. Not bad if that's all that you are going for and I understand that they can't control... More

We wee in Tamarindo on our honeymoon and wanted some fun and socializing on our trip. This was it! Boat was great, clean and plenty of room for a large crowd. Staff was friendly and made the trip go smoothly. There was an interesting mix of ou outlets, families, a group of 20 something's and some older crowds. The music... More

This was a great experience. The crew was helpful and fun, food and drinks were great. We sailed for about 1 an hour then had 2 hours to swim and snorkel - diving/jumping off the boat. Then a light dinner and sailing back as the sun set, an incredible sight from the water. We didn't have good snorkeling as the... More

This was a nice sunset, all-can-drink, full-of-good-cheer experience, but I went for the snorkeling and there was none. The place they take you to for a very short time is good for swimming and yes, you can swim with your snorkeling equipment, but there are no fish. Really, nothing to see. I was really disappointed, especially after having a great... More

Family and I love doing day sails on Catamaran's. Ken, Flillipe (Felix - inside joke), Taca, and the crew were great and welcoming. Crew engaged throughout and let us just enjoy the day. Had a great time with family and new friends. Highly Recommend. Book with them directly. Going through a hotel or result would have cost us $25 more... More

Great time! Ken, Taca and the rest of the crew were very good. Lots of fun with great friends. Very nice boat, beverages and food. Snorkeling was a great addition.

We booked this tour blind the night before. I read the Trip Advisors reviews the next day and was relieved to read such great reviews. I'm happy to report the reviews lived up to the hype. The trip was terrific. Felipe was an awesome guide. The booze was included and I had my fill of Imperial beer. The snorkeling was... More

We had a fabulous sail the afternoon of July 3rd. The food was yummy, and the scenery was spectacular, particularly the sunset. The crew was amazing - especially Jeffery! He managed to convince my daughter to snorkel with him, and he pointed out all kinds of sealife, including an octopus, puffer fish, and spiney starfish. Overall, this is a great... More
