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!

Heather and the crew arrived promptly and were excellent throughout. We were served champagne, fruit and various other drinks. The experience was fantastic - calm and romantic. We had time to catch up with old friends, enjoy the whales and dolphins and an amazing sunset. Really great to do this as a group. Thanks to you all.

Trip was great. Unfortunately we didn't snorkel as the hurricane that came through stirred up the ocean. Nonetheless we had a nice time. Crew was great. Very friendly and always ensured we had drinks and snacks. We sailed for about 2.5 hours. Nice views of the coast and out around monkey head island. We'd book again sometime in hopes of... More

A truly perfect day on the water. Captain Sebastian knows his stuff! Very interactive and the crew was top notch. We didn't lift a finger for anything and the food was great and glasses were always full. I highly recommend this excursion. This was actually our second trip with Sea Bird!

Fantastic evening! Water was choppy and not as clear for snorkeling, but it didn't matter as the crew provided a wonderful sail! Drinks, fresh fruits, help with gear, etc. The sunset was beautiful!! 🤗

No matter how many times I sail on Seabird with Sebastian and crew, it is a memorable and glorious adventure. These sailing memories bring a smile to my face. All my friends and family have the highest praises for the services provided by Heather and Sebastian's crew. Who doesn't need a sea adventure once in a while, if not every... More

Heather greeted us on shore and Julio and Hector took us out to the boat on a smaller boat. We learned that the captain, Sebastian, was Julio's brother and Hector's father. All 3 of them gave us fabulous service, from helping us on board the boat to serving lots of snacks and drinks, to keeping us cool on the boat... More

We went on the sunset sail with sea bird sailing just two nights ago. It was really lovely. The crew - Heather, Sebastian, Hector and Julio were all very caring, kind and fun people. They will sail with about 4-16 people. That night was a full boat. There was a handicapped person on the boat and just watching how kind... More
