Tamarindo Snorkel & Sunset Cruise with Lunch

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Upon departing, you will leisurely sail along the Gold Coast enjoying  some of the vast, abundant and varied sea life found along our shores.  Some of the sea life you hope to encounter includes whales, dolphins, turtles, flying fish, rays and a wide variety of seabirds.  If conditions permit, you will also throw a few fishing lines off the back in the hopes of hooking into one of the many game fish that ply our waters.
    Eventually the catamaran pulls into one of the many secluded bays in the area and you’ll have the opportunity to swim in the warm Costa Rican waters.  Life vests, pool noodles, snorkel equipment and stand up paddle boards are available should weather conditions permit.  For those passengers not wanting to get wet the catamaran is a great place to relax in the shade of the huge main salon or lounge in the sun on one of the many open deck areas.
    Following our time playing in the water, a light lunch is served.  Lunch is served at approximately 4:30 pm and includes the following:
    BBQ Chicken or Pasta Salad,
    Yellow rice,
    Black beans,
    Fresh Fruit Plates,
    Chips (Doritos, Lay’s,Cheetos and Tostitos),
    Fresh made Pico de Gallo and
    Homemade chocolate chip cookies using our Grandma's favorite recipe.
    This tour also includes a premium open bar, that includes:  
    Soft Drinks:  Pepsi, Pepsi Light, Ginger Ale, 7 Up, Toronja (Fresca), Tonic Water, Soda Water and Bottled Water
    Juices:Orange juice, mixed fruit juice , cranberry juice, apple juice and tomato juice.
    Beer:Imperial, Miller and Coors Light.
    Liquor:Flor de Caña Rum, Absolut Vodka, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Tanqueray Gin, Jose Cuervo Tequila and Cacique Guaro.
    Wine:Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon and Frontera Sauvignon Blanc.
    After lunch you will sail across the bay and back towards your departure point. You will arrive at port as the sun nears the horizon and the sky explodes into a multitude of colors.  Passengers disembark on the sands of Tamarindo or Playa del Coco just after the sun has sunk beyond the horizon.

    Staff was friendly and lunch was good. Boat was nice and clean, nice for families or couples. I was a little disappointed that this wasn’t a guided tour. Saw some cool critters that made it worth it.

    Definitely a must-do when in Tamarindo. Friendly staff, great drinks and beautiful scenery - both on and off the catamaran ; ) Well worth the price of admission.

    I think it was about $80. There were some kids on our boat. Boat holds at least 60 and there were probably 40 on ours. Lots of room during this lower season. Well worth it for the views and relaxation.

    There were about 30 people on our cruise, but we didn’t feel crowded at all. It was a super experience. Don’t miss it. I hope you get captain Taca as your skipper. He and his crew were the best!

    I did not wear a life vest. In fact the only thing they offered was what I call a swim noodle, which I declined. No pressure to use one.
