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

Johan, one of our guides, was so wonderful and nice. While we were snorkeling, he pointed out some really cool stuff, like an octopus who was in a hole and all kinds of fish. He served the food which was really good and made sure everyone had a good time. The open bar was great too. All in all the... More

Easy to book, one of the best days of my trip. The shuttle picked us up extremely on time and brought us to Playa del CoCo. We waited a few minutes for additional passengers. We then took a small boat to the catamaran. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. I believe Jeff was our favorite and went out of... More

I followed the recommendation of many others and signed up for the Marlin Del Ray sailing tour. I went by myself, and while the $85 price felt a little steep you do have an open bar (which I took full advantage of ;--) and a nice spread of snacks after docking for a swim. On my trip the crowd was... More

My family had a wonderful time on our cruise out of Playa Panama on the New Marlin. The weather was great, the water turquoise and the crew very friendly and attentive. There was an open bar with plenty of choices including non-alcoholic pina coladas. Once we arrived at our snorkeling spot, we snorkeled, swam, paddle boarded, went down the slide... More

recently visited tamarindo and took a sunset snorkel cruise with marlin Del rey, not the most up to date boat, got to the snorkel spot only to be told we would not be snorkeling due to the murkiness of the water. I have been on numerous snorkel trips and this was not worth it
