Whales, dolphins, sea turtles, swimming, beautiful views of ventanas and the coast. Guided by friendly and skilled staff. All of these things in a three hour tour. What more could you want from a hard working tour service. Also, I appreciate the crews respect and care of the national park and the animals we encountered.

One of the best experiences we've had with our family. Since the moment we arrived to the tour house the guides were very gentle! Then when we got to the park the guide was teaching us security rules which were very good. After we got into the sea, the guides --- (Alejandro - very intelligent and he has a university... More

A superb tour. A warm welcome with fresh fruit and coffee. Thoughtful, enthusiastic crew with a great sense of friendship and teamwork amongst them. They quietly and gently returned two poor travellers who suffered from seasickness while we returned to watch in amazement a mother humpbacked whale just playing, snorting and rolling about with her baby. The place, the views,... More

Took a trip to Costa Rica this June. We took a side excursion to Corcovado National Park with Bahia Aventuras. Great trip! Reimer our guide was excellent. We learned tons about the rain forest and the animals that live there. Reimer has great knowledge of the park and where the animals like to hide out. The crew on the boat... More

We saw a lot of dolphins and 3 whales! That was really impressive! The stuff was great and they gave us a lot of explications about the whales, the dolphins, all the sea birds and the isles that we could see from the boat. I would recommend this experience to everyone! The trip lasts more about 4 hours or a... More

We took two tours with Bahia Aventura while in Uvita. Both were very positive experiences. We did the full day Cano Island snorkel and three hour Ballena hike. The snorkel trip provided excellent views of the coast line from the water. We spent a few hours at a very secluded, beautiful beach on the Osa Peninsula. The snorkeling was good... More

Hello, Dear customer thanks for the comment and the recommendation of our hike tour in the Ballena marine park which is a new tour. We feel happy that both trips exceeded your expectations. The water was choppy but our crew made you feel safe and entertained to enjoy the day. best regards, More

We went to Corcovado on our last day in Costa Rica and it was an.amazing way to end a perfect trip. The boat ride is 1.5 hours and pretty bumpy. If you get sick easily be sure to take something. On the way we saw dolphins!!! The rest of the day consisted of 2 fairly easy hikes lunch and a... More

Took the full day Cano Island snorkeling trip with 14 friends. Saw Bryde's whale, sea turtles, sting rays, sharks and fish. This is Pacific snorkeling. Don't expect calm and clear Caribbean water. Chino, Jose, and Captain Pineapple took great care of us. Violines Island was a real treat. Definitely recommend full day for those who are not prone to sea... More

Half way into my first trip to Cano Island and so far the Bahia Aventuras snorkeling trip to Cano Island is the highlight! Alejandro, Jason and Jaiman made sure we got to see everything that was in the ocean today and demonstrated their high level of knowledge. Terrifically fun and informative!

My husband and I are avid scuba divers, but our sons (10 and 8) aren't quite old enough to be certified so we decided to take them snorkeling out on Cano Island for a day. The trip out there isn't bad, about an hour or so both ways. The boat was a little on the small side, so be sure... More
