My wife and I took a whale watching and snorkeling trip with Bahia Aventuras in January 2016. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke good English, and the crew members were friendly and helpful. We were able to see a pod of dolphins and, at the very end of the trip, a humpback whale. But be aware: although the guidebooks and... More

My family (including two kids ages 8 and 4) did a half day boat tour with whale/dolphin watching and snorkeling. We all had an amazing time! Everisto was our guide, and he took wonderful care of us! The captain and assistant were wonderful as well! We felt very safe the entire time and loved the personalized attention. We saw two... More

We were a group of 8 women, 32-68 years young on a yoga retreat. We took a day excursion to Corcovado National Park. We met our guide and 6 other passengers at a selected location. Reimer our guide took our cameras and cell phones and placed them in dry-bags. From our meeting point we went via a short van ride... More

We did two tours with this company. I was very impressed with their attention to detail and safety, (e.g., if you see a whale on the left, those people stay seated and the opposite side of the board may stand), as well as excellent guiding. I did a shared tour for Whale and Dolphin watching at Bahia Ballena. We did... More

We went with Bahia Aventuras for a full day snorkel tour to Cano Island. I have to say that this is one of the most professional companies we've ever been with in Costa Rica! All the guides were very helpful and made sure everyone had what they needed. They explained clearly what the day was going to be like, what... More

We had a great time with the kayaking tour with Bahía aventura. They were SO helpful. We came there and thought we would go on the Mangrove kayak tour, but due to a misunderstanding with the hotel they thought it was the kayaking + snorkeling tour, which we weren't prepared for (no bathing suits etc). And I was actually more... More

Great guides with excellent equipment. We did three adventures with them and all three were excellent. The trips started on time, were safety conscious and led by knowledgeable guides.

The crew on our Caño Island snorkeling trip was great. They knew where all the hot spots were, found a spot where we could see dolphins in the boat's wake, and were very informed.

I was so excited to do this day trip to Corcovado, but at the same time very concerned because of everything I'd read about the long, bumpy boat ride to and from. I am VERY prone to seasickness but am happy to say that even though the ride was bumpier than I ever could've imagined, I didn't even get the... More
