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!

We went on a morning snorkeling tour. They told us about the area and different beaches. We had a great time snorkeling. We saw many types of fish. Two of the crew were near us as we snorkled. It was a beautiful day and the water was clear. The crew made us feel as we were their family. Highly recommended... More

We did the sunset cruise one afternoon in early January and it was nothing less than fantastic. The crew - Sebastian, Hector, and Julio - were focused on our safety and our having a great time. Platters of watermelon and pineapple. Later a tray of tortilla chips and salsa. And all the beverages you could want - champagne, sangria, beers,... More

I arranged for a full day trip on Sea Bird as part of my birthday celebration. It couldn't have been better. There were 16 of us plus the best crew in Costa Rica, led by Sebastian, who looks a bit like Johnny Depp in "Pirates of the Caribbean" Everything was delightful including the food, prepared specially by Heather, beverages and...

Heather paid incredible attention to details even accommodating us with gluten free pasta for our outdoor barbecue which was AMAZING. Captain Sebastian and crew were incredibly terrific mates; service was professional and abundant. Totally loved the private island barbecue and snorkeling. The sailboat is fully stocked with snacks, hammocks, drinks non-alcoholic and alcoholic, comfortable areas to sit. I would HIGHLY... More

The whole team from Sea Bird Sailing was great! Our guide was Frankie, and he and the crew did such a wonderful job keeping us comfortable with snacks and drinks! The sunset was beautiful and the sea was calm! What a nice trip!

I have sailed many times on the Sea Bird, and Heather, Sebastian and the crew never fail to provide the most friendly, professional service each time! Included in the cost of the tour was an incredible sunset and dolphins jumping next to the boat. Oh, and drinks, snacks, music, and lively conversation as always! Planning to go again and again!!

We went out on the Sea Bird, leaving Coco Beach behind. Heather, our Coordinator, Sebastian, our Captain & Arron, our crew-member were knowledgable and fun to be with! They went to any and all lengths to make sure our needs were met, including fresh cut yummy pineapple and watermelon, not to mention beverages! Wow! A beautiful sailboat and awesome snorkeling...

Overall this was a fun tour. The sailing was enjoyable and we caught a beautiful sunset from the water. The snorkeling was not the greatest, but I feel this is more an issue with the location than with the tour itself. We just didn't see much, some different kinds of fish but that is all. The guides were fantastic, however,... More

We had a fantastic full day of sailing aboard The Seabird. Heather is wonderful at organizing everything. Captain Sebastian is very skilled at sailing and being the best host. Aron, Julio and Hellen did an excellent job as the crew and took care of our every need. They started with mango mimosas on boarding and from then on our drinks... More
