Why choose Sea Bird Sailing Excursions over the others? Sea Bird is a luxurious, romantic, classic sailboat strong enough to sail around the world but is here, at your service in the entire area of the Gulf of Papagayo, to take your group on a unique, customized excursion, especially suited for YOU. We never over pack the boat on "group" tours, and private tours are a very affordable option if you prefer to have the whole boat to yourself, along with our captain and crew of course. We are a family business, enjoying our lives and livelihood, and this is our only boat. We are not a big corporation bringing in busloads of tourists to board our ship. We focus on smaller groups and customized service that you will surely notice while we're out sailing. Our highly experienced captain wears the boat like a glove and the crew work together like a well oiled machine as they raise the sails, keep your glasses full and pass around snacks as you sail to the best snorkeling spot based on the conditions that day, or as you sail in to the sunset.No two excursions are alike. Why? This is a sailboat, so we go with the wind, and I assure you the captain WILL raise the sails! There are beautiful private beaches and all kinds of snorkel spots in every direction, no matter which way the wind blows. The wind does not blow the same direction every day, so why motor to the same spot day after day? Too many gorgeous options, so hoist the sails! Let's glide across the Pacific in style! The crew of Sea Bird Sailing Excursions snaps photos throughout your tours and upload them to Picasa albums where you can download all your photos...COMPLIMENTARY, and in original size, as a gift to you!Contact Sea Bird Sailing Excursions DIRECTLY through email or phone and mention this site to receive a 10% discount off the total rate of your excursion. Our rates are already lower than the competition and this is how you can save even more. We look forward to taking you on a trip that you and your family will remember forever!

I knew this was going to be good when there were as many crew as guests. Even though we were the only ones to book a morning tour (4 adults) they didn't cancel. We motored out due to lack of wind to a small secluded area where we snorkeled as much as we wanted. Starfish, sea urchins, and many different... More

Hector, Helen and El Capitan Sebastian were great. We loved the special attention from the crew, the fact that we never had an empty drink and the beautiful water we sailed through and especially the sunset. Would highly recommend this cruise to anyone wanting to relax, swim, feel pampered and enjoy the views.

We toured over to Monkey head and stopped at x playa to see the caves and a swim. Set sails and returned to Coco with just the wind!! ! Captain timed everything perfectly so we... More

Just did an evening tour on the Seabird with a few wonderful friends and my sister in law from the United States. We had the most amazing time. The wind in your hair, the beautiful blue water, and we even had a glimpse of Devil Rays coming out of the water. This is truly an experience never to forget, or... More

We had the best time sailing on the seabird! The crew was the best ever! They were very kind and were quick to serve the drinks for our party of 11! Heather was awesome in the booking of our trip. We actually sailed and not motored around like other "sailing" excursions I have been on. It was a very Pura... More

What a beautiful cruise. Heather, Sebastian, Hector, Helen and Aaron were amazing. They truly embody the Costa Rican Pura Vida. We could have sailed with them all day and never gotten tired of it. They know where to go and I really enjoyed learning more about Costa Rican culture. Highly recommend!!

Once again the Sea Bird was perfectly perfect. My teen sons were thrilled, enjoyed every second. My one son had never snorkeled and now wants to learn to dive, all because of his experience on the Sea Bird. We will be back!

Our snorkeling sail was perfect. The fish were plentiful. The area was an easy swim. They had noodles or life jackets you could use if you preferred. The drinks and snacks were great. The crew was professional and accommodating. Would definitely go on a Sea Bird Excursion again!

Once again I chartered Sea Bird for a full day excursion with a boatload of friends and we had an incredible day. From picture perfect scenery to delectable food, potent potables, delightful snorkeling and the best crew around, it couldn't have been better! It was so good, in fact, that we're doing it again in a couple of weeks. Heather... More
