My wife and I did the Mangroves tour and the Whale's Tail Bay snorkeling tour on our honeymoon in Dominical and, man did we have a great time. Snorkeling in the Pacific on Christmas morning is something we will never forget. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local ecology and history. Not to mention a fresh fruit...

A group of 5 of us went out for the kayak mangroves tour. Within minutes of launching, we saw a nice sized crocodiles, lots of birds, sloths, crabs and raccoons. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, Rachel who helped us books was also very accommodating! I would recommend Pineapple Tours to anyone!

Very friendly. They supplied transportation from Dominical to the Whale's Tail. Tip: If you are kayaking or SUP boarding on the ocean, I would suggest thin, long sleeve cotton shirts. The sun is brutal and sun screen doesn't last.

Thank you for your advice about the sun on the Whale's Tail tour. Yes, this tour is a kayak and snorkel tour, on the ocean, in the sun, 9 degrees from the equator. It is a hot one! We offer hats and sunscreen for everyone (only your husband took us up on the offer of the hat). A long sleeve... More

Pineapple tours is a wonderful company. Michael was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable. The owner Rachel was willing to change our tour last minute and even gave us the difference in cost from the two tours. Great trip!

We did the ocean caves kayak tour, and it could not have been a more exciting, memorable experience! Rachel (I assume she is the the owner or manager...she was the person we scheduled with), Michael (our guide/kayak instructor), and Danaer (the driver; he also set up a beautiful table of fresh fruit for us on the beach when we returned...

Rachel, Nego, Michael and crew were excellent! The Mangrove tour in kayaks was relaxing and Michael was an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable guide! We stopped to listen to the birds, watched the monkeys and ate wild uvitas (grapes). The fruit served after the tour was delicious! On the drive back to town they stopped 3 times to point out Sloths... More

Very nice and well-run tour through a mangrove swamp, though we didn't see as much wildlife as I would have liked.
