We took this tour in hopes of seeing whales, and we were not disappointed! We were able to see a mother and baby humpback whale swimming together, and it was a beautiful sight. We also stopped to snorkel near some volcanic rocks and despite it being rainy season, and warned that it might not be the clearest conditions, we saw... More

I was picked up a bit late at my hotel which was not a problem. However once we arrived in Quepoes we stopped at the company's center to pay our bill. Then all of us were directed back on the bus. Once at the port no directions were given and it was a bit unorganized. I found out Catamaran but... More

This company has a lot of problems to address before catering to tourist. Let me start off by saying, I am not a person to write a bad review however, I will state the issues we encountered on this particular catamaran tour. The catamaran ocean king was recommended to us by a few locals. From the time we were dropped... More

This is a very well run tour - the boat is definitely the nicest of those we saw out at the same time, the staff are very attentive and the food is very tasty. It is probably worth knowing that the focus is not however on whale and dolphin watching. You look out for them on the way to a... More

My friends and I took the cruise on the beautiful Ocean King Catamaran and had the times of our lives! We became fifteen again, sliding down the water slide and jumping off the top of the boat. We also went snorkeling, saw dolphins, and soaked up the sun and exotic coastline, and had a delicious lunch with more cocktails than... More

Spending so much on so little... just doesn't worth it. Spend your money somewhere else! Ride to the stop point was not the best. Waves are very high, and many of passengers felt bad. Don't bother to snorkel as there is not much to see... just enjoy the water... food was ok. The way back was nice, but it was... More

Admittedly, I had chalked this up originally to a typical booze cruise but ultimately came to really like it. The crew was really friendly and the boat is massive. We were lucky enough to have a smaller group with us so that seating wasn't an issue up top on the lounge chairs (the bottom is largely benches), but I did... More

This was the favorite tour during our vacation in Manuel Antonio. We had free drinks and snacks. The lunch was soooo good and mostly all-you-can-eat. We got snorkel, jump from the second tier of the boat and go down the boat slides. The water was so nice and warm, although it was not very clear, so the snorkeling wasn't that... More

Our friends had their destination wedding in Manuel Antonio and organized a Catamaran for one of their post-wedding activities. For those staying at the Costa Verde Hotel, we were picked up in buses rather early in the morning and taken to their offices to pay our fee then driven to the dock where we'd board the boat. I'd suggest packing... More

This was the best part of my vacation in Costa Rica. The staff was friendly and funny. The food was soooo good. We got to see dolphins and snorkled. The water was too cloudy, so the snorkling wasn't that great, but the water felt amazing. I witness a crew member dive to the bottom of the ocean to retrieve a... More
