This boat is simply amazing. For those that don't know much about boats, it will take you about 3 seconds to understand you are on an amazing boat. Wide, confortable, super fast and stocked with all the fun toys for all day water activities...it even has a proper BBQ set up. OMG this boat is so much fun!

Diego arranged a wonderful 1/2 day on this fabulous boat. My brother’s soon to be fiancé had never been snorkeling or on a sup so it was great fun to see her and my brother enjoying the beautiful scenery and actually get up on the boards. Gon went snorkeling with them and pointed out the different fish and turtles, and instructed them on getting up on the sup, they had a great time. Trolled for fish but no luck, but saw plenty of dolphins. Johnathan, the captain was super in letting us try so many activities and getting us close to the beaches to explore. This boat is very well equipped even a bathroom. They provided us with drinks, great fruit and snacks. If you catch fish they can even cook it for you. This is a wonderful boat and the people who handle it are fantastic. I highly recommend contacting Diego and enjoying time out on the water. Sunsets are unbelievable.

We booked for a group of ten- all adults ranging in ages (late 20’s to a couple late 50’s) for an all day excursion. Fishing (caught one too!), snorkelling, paddle boarding, tubing and floating. The crew made a fabulous lunch (fish), roasted vegetables, hummus, fresh fruit, ceviche and sashimi from the caught fish. The boat size worked well for our group and the trip ranks as a highlight of our Costa Rica adventure. The crew was amazing and made this adventure! Recommend this private tour!

Patron, and their attentive crew, is the real deal. Will go see them again and enjoy their boat and hospitality on our next visit! Can’t recommend more enthusiastically! Gon and Jonathan were comfortable, cool, and absolutely there to make sure every aspect of our boat trip was outstanding. We spent a day and a half with them on Patron. It was luxurious to have the entire boat to the three of us, though I’m sure it could handle 6-8 relatively comfortably. Our first boating day was planned to be a mixed, flexible schedule of boating, coastal touring, maybe fishing, lunch. We toured the coastline in the 15-20 miles vicinity of Playa del Coco, with Gon unobtrusively and knowledgeably narrating and fielding questions from us as we settled in. After a few hours, we stopped to cool off with a swim. More than once we, while motoring along, we were treated to freshly-cut pineapple, chips and salsa and drinks, fresh coconut water straight out of the fruit--and best, freshly-caught sashimi tuna. Though, for us, fishing was potentially on the day's agenda, earlier on, we opted to forgo that. However, at about 4 pm, skipjack (bonito) tuna were schooling at the surface, creating the best of fisherman’s frenzy. We decided to start chasing them and casting to them. Gon hooked one up and let me land it. He then field dressed it out and we ate it right there in boat. Life memory. NOTE: Wear SUNSCREEN. Our second day was a ½ day surfing lesson, my first. Though the lesson was officially was with an excellent partner guide, Diago (the one who recommended Patron initially) we used their boat to get to the ideal surfing beach, about 15-20 north on the coast near Witches Rock. At that point, we were already so comfortable with them, it was like an extension of our first day. My wife and mother-in-law hung on the boat during my 2 hour surf lesson. We stopped to swim on the way home. Even if you don’t hire them for boating, DEFINITELY USE THESE GUYS TO GET TO WITCH’S ROCK TO SURF, TOO!

We are visiting Costa Rica from snowy Minnesota and thank you to Diego for recommending this afternoon cruise to us. We were not disappointed! We saw monkeys, dolphins and a ray flipping in the ocean! We even witnessed a young man catching a Mahi-mahi with his bare hands!! The crew of the boat was very attentive and informative and catered to our every need. The sunset as we came home was beautiful! We would highly recommend this for a fun afternoon outing.
