We utilized Bahia Aventuras for 3 separate tours. We spent our first day deep sea fishing with Jovino. We weren't really sure what to expect, but needless to say this is something that we highly recommend. We each caught a red snapper. They helped us hook them and reel them in. So fun and exhilarating!!! Our tour ended at 3pm... More

Alejandro was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about local wildlife. He and the other 2 crew members made sure that we saw as many fish as possible. We traveled with our 8 year old son and did the 2.5 hour tour in the morning. It was just the right amount of time for his attention span. We can't... More

Aharel, our host, recommended Bahia Aventuras to us as the leading tour company in the area. He was right. Wayne, our humorous tour guide, Jose, the excellent driver, and Henry (Spanky), the helpful and able ship mate, made our trip safe, enjoyable, and informative. We loved the snorkeling, only wishing for more time. We spotted dolphins and a sea turtle... More

As everybody will tell you, one day is not enough to visit a gem like Corcovado but, being conscious of that, I must say that having a glimpse of what it is through Bahia Aventuras was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone! The guides were professional and very knowledgeable of the wildlife and the végétation found... More

Took a snorkelling trip to cano island. Great time. Boat ride was fun but bumpy. Once in the water the team did a great job making sure we saw a lot of great fish. The boat ride to the private beach was a highlight seeing a sea turtle in the way. Lunch was fantastic and we were all exhausted after... More

We went on the snorkeling tour to Caño Island with guide Raymond and captain "Pineapple". Excellent in all categories, but be prepared for a long and bumpy boat ride. The lunch was good, too.

My wife and I had a wonderful tour of the Corcovado national park/coastline in mid December 2014. It was just the two of us, with the incredibly knowledgeable Cesar as our guide. Our hotel had recommended him personally. We saw all sorts of wonderful wildlife, including howler monkeys, macaw parrots, and kingfishers. Cesar had the ability to spot animals way... More

First of all we want to thank Leo (our guide), Heiner (boat captain) and Henry (1st mate) for and EXCELLENT tour. The boat was clean and comfortable with good shade. Leo gave excellent instructions for snorkeling and dove down several times to point out (harmless) reef sharks, and turtles. Then after 2 snorkeling opportunities he pulled out a chart to... More

Wayne was our excellent guide, and we had a stellar boat captain and crew. The food was delicious. The snorkeling at Caño was clear and teeming with all kinds of fish, large and small. We saw a hawksbill sea turtle eating an eel. The waterfall hike at Corcovado was wonderful - very refreshing and fun to play in the cascades.... More
