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

Went on the full day Corcovado tour and was highly satisfied. The boat tour is very interesting (1.5 hours each way) and you have the opportunity to watch dolphins as well as whales. Did not see any whales but plenty of dolphins as well as brown boobies and pelicans. Even a sea turtle showed up in the deep ocean. When... More

We booked a 3 hour snorkeling tour with them. Guide was very knowledgeable, excellent boat, great captains, and good group size (7). We drove about 10 minutes with the boat to the Whale's Tail and had about 1 hour to snorkel there. Saw a few parrot fish, puffer fish etc, but having snorkeled in the Caribbean before, it wasn't worth... More

I would highly recommend the boat trip out to Corcovado National Park - the guides were GREAT, the group wasn't too big, the two walks were a good length, not too arduous but felt like you really did something and saw some great animals, the lunch was delicious and we even saw dolphins on the trip over. Book it!

We went with Bahia Adventures for a combo snorkeling and dolphin/whale watching tour. They were very professional, very safe and very nice. We were lucky enough to see a momma and baby whale and a bunch of Dolphins. The snorkeling was so-so because of the visibility. It would have been disappointing to see no wildlife. They did warn us that... More

We really loved our tours with Bahia Aventuras during our honeymoon in CR! Everyone from the owners, to the tour guides, to the captains of the boats were friendly and knowledgeable. We did two different activities on two separate days with Bahia during our time spent in the Uvita area. The snorkeling trip to the Whale's Tail and Whale Island... More

I went to Corcovado for the day tour and wasn't impressed. This is likely more to do with the inability to really get deep into the park in 1 day than anything else. We went to Manuel Antonio park previously and saw the same diversity and animals for far less money. Our guide also wasn't great. He was nice, knew... More

Our group took a boat to Cano island for snokeling with Bahia Aventuras. The boat were well-maintained and expertly piloted by a 3-man team of knowledgeable guides. We saw flying fish and dolphins on the ride out and had a great time snorkeling around the island. I was especially impressed by the way the 3 guides handled the group while... More

We as a group spent a day on the boat, leaving from Uvita toward the coral reef, then lunch at corcovado peninsula, and back again to uvita. The crew was highly professional, passionate, and well organized. They were very concerned for our safety and made sure we had the best experience. From guiding us during our snorkeling adventure, to finding... More
