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 originally met Heather at Rancho Armadillo where my family was staying. She mentioned she did sailing/snorkeling excursions and within about 5 minutes, I paid her for my family of 5 to go later in the week- wife, 11month old, 5 year old, and 8 year old. It was just us and a great Canadian couple on our 9am-1pm excursion.... More

Nice intimate experience with only seven passengers on the boat. They kept the drinks, fruit, and chips coming. Lots of choices - Sangria, beer, juice, Coke, etc. The crew was really friendly and helpful. Snorkeling was nice with pretty good visibility. Saw many different fish and two types of eels. Saw a turtle and dolphins on our trip back to... More

This was a highlight of our trip. We were met at the beach and taken care of like kings the whole way out and snorkeled at a great spot and rode back with our 5 year old. Worth every penny.

Right from the booking process, to the cost and the trip itself - top notch! The crew is more than willing to accommodate your needs. Beverages, fruit and a multitude of snacks are available. Snorkelling was good and a rest at a small beach hit the spot. The sunset cruise would also be amazing.

Our group went out for a sunset cruise on Sea Bird and had an awesome time! The best part was definitely the crew, and Captain Sebastian kept us well taken care of and entertained. He took us to a nice snorkeling spot, and swam around with us taking photos (can't wait to see them!). He was very knowledgable and full... More

Nice Boat, Great Crew, Good Snacks & Drinks - our day on Sea Bird was wonderful! Smooth sailing, snorkeling, and ended on a secluded beach. Would do it again!

The crew is great, very friendly and helpful. Our family of four had a great time. Costa Rica is not the best place for snorkeling/diving, but the crew took us to a nice location and we were able to see quite a bit.

Crew was casual and looked after us very well. Great Snorkeling. They did not put up the sails on the boat which was a little disappointing.

Thank you for the review, Brad! Sorry there wasn't any wind the day you went out. I just look back at your photo album and can see it was a cloudy day and the water is glassy (no wind at all.) Glad you had a great time anyway, though, despite the lack of wind! There are some huge parrot fish... More
