Almaco's private customized boat tours are a great way to experience Costa Rica from the ocean’s point of view. For almost a decade we have been designing dynamic tours for small groups and families who want a little bit of everything while out on the water. We offer snorkeling, sport fishing, scuba diving (and instruction), surf trips (and instruction), standup paddling, sunset tours, and unforgettable full day beach barbeque tours with delicious gourmet food.

We enjoyed two days of boating with friends that were definitely the highlight of our Costa Rican holiday with friends. We went out on two different boats - both of which were in excellent condition - clean, comfortable and fully equipped. There was so much to do and we had a blast! The first day we went on a snorkeling... More

We chartered a boat with Almaco during our recent stay in Playa Ocotal. Our tour guide, Carlos with Green Life Tours, recommended them. And boy were we glad! We booked the boat for the entire day - 9am until sunset. We told our guide, Owen, and captain, Wilbur, we wanted to do basically everything - and they came prepared! Fishing,... More

Had a fabulous morning guided by Guayo and Michi. We took our two children ages 12 and 15 with us and they were enthralled. They let us choose the pace and there were so many activities to choose from. We chose dolphin watching, a journey through the mangroves, SUP, snorkeling and sub wing. Guayo joined in the diving and was... More

We go out with Almaco every time we are in Costa Rica and it is always the highlight of our trip! Snorkeling, sub wing, tubing, wake boarding, water skiing, incredible fishing, truly delicious lunch, snacks, drinks, and more. The guides are very knowledgeable and experienced and can find anything on the snorkeling trips - turtles, sharks, tons of fish, octopus,... More

My husband, 9 year old, and I just spent two weeks in Costa Rica. One of the highlights was definitely our half day on the boat Almaco. The boat trip was amazing: we caught fish (my 9 year old's first catch ever!), saw dolphins breach and play, paddle boarded in a secluded lagoon, snorkeled with dozens of types of fish,... More
