This was our last tour we had during our 10 day family vacation to Costa Rica and it surely did not disappoint. We surprisingly had the Kuna Vela sail boat all to ourselves along with Omar our snorkel guide/bartender, and Captain Israel! It was truly an amazing experience especially seeing the sunset with just the family. We snorkeled at two... More

My family Loved this sunset tour. They were very patient with our young children, who had never snorkled. It is a memory we treasure. I couldn't believe how lucky we all were to find these great people.

We went in the afternoon for the sunset sail. The Captain Israel and Christian were always ready to help answer any questions and snacks and drinks were available. We went snorkeling and saw some white faced monkeys on the beach. The pleasant afternoon ended with a lovely sunset and we would go again.

I went on this tour and I was very disappointed. The beverages you mentioned were rum juice and the cheapest beer in CR which we ran out of. The "gourmet snacks" included little unripe fruit, cheap chips, re fried beans, cheese dip and bread with tuna spread. What of that would you consider gourmet? We arrived late to snorkeling so...

Our family of 4 had the sailboat all to ourselves this morning. The crew of 2 recommend an awesome snorkeling location. Great visibility and tons of fish. Even saw several 3 ft long sharks. Also stopped on a beach with some great caves. Rounded it out with snacks, rum punch, and sodas for he kids. Perfect weather for sailing.

We hired the Kuna Vela take our group of 8 on a sunset cruise. It was impeccable - Israel and Christian were wonderful and the whole experience was top notch. We had the opportunity to snorkel and were the only ones in our area. The snacks provided were fresh and delicious. Christian ensured none of us were empty handed the... More

This was truly a great experience. Communicating with the company was easy and fast via email, and we were able to book it last minute for the next morning. We were lucky to just be us 4 and the two captains. They took us out to the islands for a long 1.5 hour+ snorkeling adventure. The equipment was alright, with... More

What an awesome tour the 3 of us had Weds 12/2/15. Traveled up the beautiful coastline coast line to snorkel in a nice secluded cove loaded with fish. On the way we saw dolphins, turtles, rays, and birds! Go in the morning for best snorkeling and cooler temps. The crew were great and we enjoyed a delicious lunch. Plenty of... More
