True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast,"...

True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast," Manuel Antonio's beautiful coast is rich in both marine and terrestrial wildlife. The mountain rain forest slopes right down to the beautiful white sand beaches.

A morning or afternoon (sunset) cruise aboard either our Sailboat, or Trimaran, is the perfect way to enjoy all that the Manuel Antonio Coast has to offer.

As you sail past the offshore islets, which serve as a rookery to many sea birds, including brown boobies, frigates and pelicans, you'll marvel at the graceful way they soar. You will thrill to their amazing displays of fishing prowess, as they dive into the ocean, and fly away with their catch.

As your boat glides through the water, you will likely encounter Dolphins, which love to swim in our bow wake. Occasional Giant Sea Turtles and whales are a special treat, when they appear.

One of the highlights of your tour is snorkeling, while at anchor in a beautiful Jungle Bay. All of your snorkel gear is provided by the crew of Sunset Sails. A guide will lead you to the reef, which is home to many species of beautiful and fascinating fish. If you float cracker crumbs, you'll be amazed, as schools of fish dart all around you, in a feeding frenzy. Parrotfish, damselfish, sargeant majors, wrasses, puffers and many more beautiful fish abound on the reef. If you have an underwater camera, you might want to bring it with you.

Of course, one of the real highlights of our Sunset Cruise, is the Sunset. As the sun sets into the ocean horizon, it often creates spectacularly beautiful displays of color. It's a perfect, romantic ending to a beautiful day in "Paradise"

Whether on our Trimaran or Sailboat, Sunset Sails Tours is your number one choice for a wonderful and relaxing boat tour in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

I booked this last minute as I was only in the area for a very short time. My hotel were great and recommended it as something which would be quite unique to the area. Given that the trip includes snorkelling and I don't swim, I was a little unsure (although you of course don't have to snorkel if you don't... More

We had so much fun on this boat cruise. They had plentiful rum drinks and beer for us to enjoy on the boat. Christopher was a great guide and was funny and a good mix of being really informational and just low key. We saw dolphins! I was impressed by the snorkeling simply because I didn't expect to see anything... More

TA reviewers got it right once again! So glad we chose this instead of the Catamaran which went to all the same places but was crammed full and seemed to attract more of a "spring break" clientele. Lourdes made booking extra easy. Minor and Christopher take care of everything while you are on board. These people deliver on Pura Vida.

Our extended family of 18, ages 16-83, had a blast on a lunchtime trip. Minor is a terrific host, and he and his crew took great care of every member of our group. We saw at least six dolphins, including three that stayed near the front of our boat for four or five minutes. We took a slight detour to... More

My wife and I are honeymooning in Manuel Antonio / Quepos area and though this would be a nice excursion for us to do together as a couple. We were right! We were not on the biggest or fanciest catamaran in the marina but turned out to the be best. The smaller boat made for a little more intimate tour... More

Easily one of the best activities we did while in Costa Rica! We saw humpback whales, snorkeled, had a good dinner, free drinks (rum), and watched a gorgeous sunset. Recommend this! Some mosquito repellent after you get off the boat is recommended too.

Wonderful activity to do in the area. The boat is beautiful and the staff is terrific. The meal and drinks provided are fantastic. It was the funnest activity we did in Manuel Antonio (way better than the tour of the bus).

My family enjoyed a Sunset Sail tour 2 days ago and I can't stop thinking about it. In about a 3 hour tour, we saw dolphins not only circle our boat but swim right along right under the boat making for the best pictures I took on our trip to Costa Rica. We snorkled and saw several varieties of fish... More

Great trip. A nice relaxing way to start a day. The staff is great and the meal is very good. Snorkeling in the area is so so, but the outing is worth it
