We spent two week in Costa Rica for second time and ran all over the region for various tours and this was by far our favorites. We had such an amazing time. We are going back this year with our teenagers and will absolutely be booking it again for all 6 of us. Worth every penny. Our captain (marco) was an absolute blast. The whole team was professional, very bilingual, took great care of us, made sure we had everything we needed The boat was in great shape, snorkeling equipment was good clean and easy to use. The crew was engaging.

The only recommendation that I have is pay attention to the email that you going to receive from the owner, where they provide the google location of the restaurant and a photo of their guide. It is very important that you wait at the entrance of the restaurant since, unfortunately, near there is another company that, in order to sell you the tour again, will comes to you and will tell you that the company does not exist, so I recommend to pay attention to the information that you will receive from the owner, and be careful with people who are not part of the company.

We did a boat tour to Isla Tortuga with Captain Marco, Isabela and Mairon and few other people. We got to see some dolphins, spider monkeys and beautiful fishes while snorkeling. Besides, we saw some stunning sand beaches and arches on the islands nearby, in this gorgeous side of the Pacific coast.

We had an amazing time with Marco, Isabela and Mairon. They were professional, approachable and a lot of fun. They are extremely flexible - they arrive in the island a bit earlier (before the larger boats) and can leave a bit later so to enjoy some quite and private time in the island. Our lunch was delicious, they took care of everything.

The boat crew treated us like friends, which sets them apart from other tour groups (more touristic).

I highly highly recommend booking with them if you are planning a trip to this gorgeous island in the Pacific ocean!

If you believe Pura Vida is as much about the people as it is the Paradise, look no further! It’s hard to say if there can ever truly be a “favorite”, but this one made it happen.

Our morning started out looking a little uncertain, Capt. Marco & Daniel ensured that we were in the safest of hands and we’d not get too far if it got too sketchy. We were in exceptional care with the team, and Mother Nature beamed down and turned the weather around, so we wouldn’t have to 😏.

Our tour could not have been a more wonderful experience. Surrounded by the lush greenery, fresh ocean waves, we cruised along with our new friends learning more about the natural wonders that make Costa Rica so special. Music was bumping, adding more bounce to the adventure, and the team even offered to pipe in our own jams via Bluetooth.

No monkeys or dolphin sightings, however, spectacular views & unique experiences while snorkeling. The snorkeling experience is also another example of the difference between the big boats and a team like this, our time snorkeling was a unique & special experience, hands on learning at its best! Daniel showed & shared so much of his ocean friends with us.

After swimming & feeding the fishes, we were off to beach, and couldn’t wait! The team delivered us directly & easily to Tortuga Island where we dined on the BEST (another big statement, considering all the food in CR is so drool worthy 🤤) luncheon - so much beautiful fruit, fried plantains, salad, rice, fresh grilled tuna (that I’m certain Capt. Marco caught while we were busy snorkeling.) …and then we were off to play at the playa!

Rental chairs & umbrellas are available, but not required nor necessary, we did but could’ve gone either way as the sand is silk.

As the afternoon restfully breezed on, coffee and snacks were provided, and while they were so welcome & wonderful, we knew this meant our time with these great new friends and this beautiful place was about to end. Good thing the boat ride back was just as wonderful.

We can’t wait to come back!

Ciao!

Pura Vida!

We had an amazing time with this tour group. From beginning to end they were courteous, professional, approachable and fun. They leave a bit earlier so when you get to the island you have top pick of beach chairs and quieter beach time before the larger boats arrive. Our lunch was so delicious, they took care of everything, we just relaxed. We were treated like friends and not tourists which sets them apart from other tour groups. If you plan in visiting Tortuga Island I highly recommend booking with them.

Once we found the boat (listen to the directions the tour gives you!) our day unfolded spectacularly. Christian and Marco loaded us on to the boat with our ample animal viewing hopes. We had no idea what a soul-splendoring afternoon this would be. Right away, the boat took off. Out into the ocean, Marco (the second best capitain of all time, don't ask what happened to the first capitain) navigated the boat so we could see playful dolphins and other frolicking wild life (we also picked up the chef!) All the way Chrisitan narrated us with an educational commentary so comedic that I almost fell off of the boat laughing (fortunately, we were wearing life jackets!) But, yes, jump off of the boat we did: and we snorkled in that aquamarine water... coexisting with the most stunning fish and sea creatures.

Back on the boat, Chrisitan heard my Dad's plea to see the monkeys. He steered us to a special island where we saw a whole spider monkey community.

Finally, we ventured to the destination to Isla Tortuga. While we ambled the island, the crew put together an incredible feast: an appetizer of the freshest, most succulent fruit and mouth watering ceviche to begin. The main course starred a fillet of tuna, vegetables and potato salad. Sipping my beer, toes in the sand, I thought, "hey, I could get used to this."

We frolicked on the island: meeting a deer and an island peacock. We also observed an interesting showdown between two iguanas and treasure trove of lettuce leaves. Darwin would be happy indeed.

After an afternoon of basking in the sun and floating in the aquamarine waters, we returned for coffee and more fruit.

Christian and Marco returned us safe to the mainland. But, the experience remains egrained in my mind. Yes, the trip was planned so meticulously. Yes, Christian shared his knowledge of the flora and fauna of the sea. But, there was something else: the experience of being fully present: enjoying the moment: pura vida. That feeling of happiness and bliss admist a backdrop of aquamarine waters. Thank you for making this experience so fantastic for my family.

Me and my girlfriend had a perfect day on this daytrip. The boat ride was smooth and nice, the boat good and clean and the crew was fantastic. The captain could give us a lot of information as we were cruising between islands. The lunch we were served was excellent! And so was the location were we had it. Probably the best day during our hole visit in Costa Rica, unforgettable! We would very much like to recommend this company (Turismo Marítimo del Pacífico). You will not regret using their service!

I've been on tours with many different companies but this was is by far the best. The tour was customized for us according to our needs. Tour guides had no problem making the perfect tour for us and my pet.

The tours overall felt less like traveling with a tour guide and more like traveling with a friend. I'd highly recommend these tours to anyone interested in seeing Tortuga island Costa Rica.

Captain marco was extremely flexible He did a fantastic job with every single one. He was also extremely kind and a pleasure to get to know. Cristian was a fantastic tour guide and one of the kindest gentlemen I have met. He went out of his way to make our tour perfect. Thank you all for an awesome trip!

My boyfriend and I were on summer for first time. We found easily private parking spaces around Caldera Port, we met the crew on time, waiting for us with a big smile and a friendly welcome. The guide was knowledgeable, personable and informative about the different locations in the way to Tortuga, we enjoyed the amazing Quesera beach, cute spider monkeys on the island and snorkeling on coral reef, where we enjoyed the beautiful Costa Rica's marine life.
Tortuga was a great spot to relax, to hike and try the banana boat, it was a great experience! In Tortuga you can find Ostion vaca, a special local dish, we missed the opportunity to tried it, but it seems like it's very popular and enjoyable by all the visitors. At 4 was time to go, we were little sad but knowing that soon we were back again!
Must need sun blocker and Pura Vida vibes!

Fantastic tour with Captain Marco and Daniel. They took us to see dolphins and spider monkeys. Fun music on board. My husband and teen girls went snorkeling with Daniel who was very knowledgeable. Great lunch on the beach. They were able to accommodate our vegetarian diets. Would highly recommend going with this company if planning a trip to Tortuga Island! Great value and all in all an Excellent day!

Seeing all the beautiful islands on our way to isla Tortuga was an awesome experience! The tour guide was very informative and super attentive of my family if we needed anything. What made the experience unique was that my family was the only family on the boat tour. It made the tour that much more personal🙂.
