Just got back from a wonderful week in Costa Rica and one of the tours we did was a whale watching tour with Bahia Adventures. We booked the tour online and it was a breeze - just told them when we wanted to go and how many in our group and an invoice was sent to pay via PayPal. We... More

There were 12 people in our group. With only one guide accompanying us on the hike, this meant that those I the middle and back were unable to hear. We missed a good deal of information (eg "don't touch the...) as well as the opportunity to see many of the things the guide pointed out. That being said, the guide... More

We have previously done other tours with Bahia with great success. The Corcovado Tour was no different. Cesar was a great guide and very knowledgable naturalist. We saw whales that aren't routinely seen on the boat ride to the park. It was a great day at this amazing National Park. It was however the ride back to Uvita that got... More

My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenage boys) loved the whale watching outing. Guides were great and very informative. We saw several humpback mother's with their babies. The guides knew just where to find them. We also saw a grouping of dolphins. Remember you will be out in the ocean and in a small boat - one tourist was... More

We took our extended family of 15 members (ages 9 - 82) to Costa Rica for two weeks of adventure. The snorkeling experience provided by Bahia Aventuras was one of our highs. Not only did we get to snorkel and see a variety of fish, but our guide, Wayne, pointed out a large sea turtle on our way to the... More

My wife and I took the guided tour through Corcovado Park with the 1.5 hour boat ride out and back. The guides were friendly and very knowledgeable. We spotted multiple whales and sea turtles on both legs of the boat ride. The tour through the park was a nice casual pace with lots of breaks for pictures and explanations of... More

My daughter (11) and I went on the Corcovado tour on June 13th, 2014. The staff were very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. The 1 1/2 hour boat ride was bumpy but fun for anyone who loves to be out on the water. It poured for part of the ride and for some of the time we were at the National... More

we had an amazing day, and would recommend this to anyone looking to spend a day in paradise. The crew were great, the park amazing, and wildlife abundant. We were fortunate to spot some whales heading out, and stopped to observe a bride whale, which was a huge plus. We then landed at the park, and the place is simply... More

Loved the dolphin and whale watching on this tour as we saw them within 15 mins! We had never been so close to dolphins and also loved the opportunity to snorkel in the pacific. Great service and will definitely be back. Tip: bring a rain coat and definitely take motion sickness tablets given you go pretty far out...and bring your... More
