We recently took the Catamaran while on a one week vacation in the Manual Antonio area with my husband and two sons (10 and 12). We had an ok time, but it was not on the top of any of our lists at the end of the week. One of the problems was we really didn't do our research before... More

We took the sunset cruise. Our grandchildren 3 and 7 year old had so much fun. Other children were in board too. We had fun dancing, snorkeling, going down the slide and the food was good. Beautiful sunset and we saw dolphins. There was alcohol and drinks for the kids. This was a fun family experience.

80 dollars ie a week's wage in Costa Rica for a trip lasting just over 3 hours. Bar on the boat had no wine only beer on tap and cocktails made with local spirits, no gin. Disgrace when they boast of unlimited drinks. Food just ok but a rush to eat it on your knees before they raced back to... More

I am not sure how ratings are weighted on TA, but do not be swayed by the ranking. Comparing a whitewater rafting or ziplining adventure is really comparing apples and oranges. Anyway, we were able to take in a sunset cruise last Monday on the Ocean King. I don't think you can really wrap your head around how beautiful the... More

The afternoon tour not great for kids - felt more like a booze cruise. Snorkeling not great - no variety of fish and 3 out of 5 of us stung by jelly fish. Crew not helpful to our kids that were stung. More helpful if you need a drink. Overall, beautiful boat ride (saw Dolphins and sunset!) but overpriced for... More

The afternoon cruise, on the Ocean King, provided a variety of activities for all ages. The very friendly staff/crew catered to everyone's needs. The open bar and music provided a festive atmosphere. We were fortunate that the boat was not crowded. There was ample space both on deck and above. Our captain pointed out a school of dolphins. We were... More

I already experienced catamaran tours a few time but this time was amazing! We had the Ocean King which is huge, beautiful two story catamaran with two slides from the 2nd story to the ocean, nice clean restrooms (for a boat). The catamaran itself was nice but the staff made the experience even nicer. Very friendly people, making sure everybody... More

We took the catamaran called Ocean King, which I believe is this company. This was the largest vessel at the docks. It was definitely a party boat! 100 or more people. If you want lots of alcoholic beverages included and loud continuous music, this is the boat for you. Though we had good weather and a pretty sunset, all the... More

My wife and I joined the 2pm afternoon cruise yesterday. It was a fantastic outing...sunshine, calm seas, long wide stable new boat with two levels, two fresh water tubs, fantastic music, ample open space and seating, open bar, very good dinner and awesome sunset. It was great having only about 50 people on board, likely about half of capacity. The... More

Didn't see any wild life apart from when we snorkelled which was ace, fab & wonderful. The food was scrumdicilous and there was plenty of it. The sunset was superb if you like sunsets. If you don't like sunsets you can always look in the opposite direction Be aware though, if you snorkel you are likely to get wet unless... More
