The boat was comfortable; the guide - Josh, was great and very knowledge; we saw lots of dolphins; nice selection of fruits and snacks were served on board. The plane-boarding was amazing for one of us but the rest felt rushed. Our only wish: better control of the schedule and set of the expectation. We requested that plane-boarding was the... More

This boat tour was the only thing on our 2 week vacation to Costa Rica that we did not book ahead of time. The owner of Cabinas Jimenez recommended it to us because there was a sighting of a Whale Shark the previous day. We decided to give it a go since we had an open day and we are... More

Captain John, First Mate Sam, and Cruise Director Josh provided our group of 8 with a terrific time cruising around the Golfo Dulce. We started with a short mangrove tour while the tides were favorable, allowing us to spot a roseated spoonbill and blue heron. They then took us over to the Wildlife Sanctuary (reviewed separately), and afterwards they took... More

We didn't stay at Cabinas Jimenez, but went over to check out the beautiful grounds and inquire about the boat trip to the animal sanctuary. We spoke with John the owner and let him know that the next morning was the only possible day we could do it. He said he would try to make it happen. He called us... More

I had the opposite experience from the reviewer below. We were not staying at the Cabinas Jiminez, but were treated like we were. We rented a home and the owners recommended this tour. When we drove to the cabins to register for the tour, they did not have enough people to go, but said they would do their best to... More

Me and my girlfriend took this tour in Feb 2012 while visiting Puerto Jimenez. We booked at Cabinas Jimenez and asked them about how we can get to the Wildlife Sanctuary. They recommended this tour which includes a stop at the Wildlife Sanctuary and we put our names on the list MONTHS in advance (August to be exact). We obviously... More

We were in the Osa in mid April with our two teenaged daughters. As we had rented a house, we booked our trip in town at the internet cafe. We did a good many things while we were in the Osa, but this was everyone's favorite part of our trip. John and Chris were very knowledgable about the local flora... More

We booked this boat cruise through the Cabinas Jiminez reception desk. The owner of the hotel, John, owns the boat and employs Capt. Chris to drive it. They charge $26US per person to take you for a couple hours, by boat, to seek out dolphins, go to the Wildlife Refuge, go snorkelling and back to the port at Jiminez. We... More

Thank you so much for the kudos on our trip! We always try to make every trip a safe, fun, and hopefully a once in a lifetime experience. This being the first, of hopefully many, reviews about the La Sirena Boat Tour I felt it necessary to correct the information in your review about our price. Our tour price for... More
