We have done this several times now and we have always had a good time. The frozen drinks are amazing and you can help yourself to the coolers full of beer. Soft drinks and food is also provided. You can snorkel and swim around the boat. The snorkeling isnt always great depending on how big the swell is at the... More

Wow! Every trip we have been on we do a catamaran trip. This was the worst. Beautiful scenery and sunset. But the other that one or two of the staff, very unfriendly!! The female bartender actually never smile and was rude!

Large catamaran with lovely meal and friendly crew. Went snorkelling- saw fish but not the colourful ones you see in Hawaii or the Caribbean. Spent most of the time using their engine but on return trip to watch the sunset, they put up the sails. Would recommend this company as they had a much prettier catamaran that the other ones...

This was a great experience that we would highly recommend. We sailed on one of the last few days of our honeymoon on the ship captained by Taco. The staff, especially Ken, were extremely attentive and fun. They constantly walked around taking empty glasses and cans and getting drinks for us. They taught everyone how to dance to some fun...

we had a ton of people on our boat but the crew did a great job. Always walking around ready to get another drink if you want it. Food was pretty good also! we stopped to swim about an hour in, then the sail went up and the ride was smooth all the way back to Tamarindo.

A very professional crew and lovely catamaran boat, vibe and locations make this a great tour to do while in Tama. Mind the crowd you get though as it changes daily I imagine. Our crowd was civilised and friendly, so all good. Plenty of drinks available and good (not skipping on the booze at all and beers are self service... More

We started off by sailing out to a snorkel point. On the way some danced and others drank, i think everyone drank haha all in all it was a good vibe. When we all jumped in we saw two puffer fish and sea urchins in every hole in the coral reef!! Afterwards we ate chicken, rice, and snacks. When we... More

Four of us did a private afternoon sunset sail with Captain Matteo and his crew, what a fabulous afternoon! If you can ever do a small group on a private sail, this is the way to go. One of the crew snorkeled with us and brought up several items for us to see and touch, he took great care and... More

A group of 12 of us had a wonderful day 1:30-6:00 on board this nice catamaran. Crew was excellent and super friendly! Sailed out for about an hour, then we set anchor to play in the water or swim to shore for a few adventurous few. Amazing yummy lunch served then on the boat with an all day open bar!... More
