Rolbin made every effort to give us the trip that we wanted. I particularly appreciated his knowledge of the area and clear communication before and during the dive (his English is excellent.) He did a great job of pointing out critters on the dive; we saw lots of rays, eels, a small shark and a turtle. He also called my attention to the sound of whales!

Our experience diving with Rolbin was amazing! I am a diving instructor and was doing an Open Water Course with Rolbin as captain. The boat, the tanks, the equipment everything was in great conditions. Rolbin was amazing as captain and also made sure my student was safe and having a great time. He also takes awesome pictures! if you are ever in Playas del Coco and want to go diving I highly recommend choosing Marea Alta Ocean adventures!!

Michael, Ernesto, and Devon picked up our family of 4 on Ocotal beach right in front of Father Roosters for a beautiful morning on the water! From stingrays jumping out of the water around us, to snorkelling in beautiful calm waters, private beaches, gorgeous views and wildlife viewing, and a wonderful spread of food while we lounged around and played in the water at our own beach, our crew were friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this tour and specifically the crew members! Thank you all for a lovely day!

This was our best adventure! Our crew of three picked us up in Ocotal, there were four of us in our group which was perfect for the small boat and still had lots of room. The best part was the snorkeling, we saw so many varieties of fish, octopus, eel, star fish. I saw the most beautiful blue/purple starfish ever! We went up a river by the mangrove trees, to a beach with a cool cave and short hike for a fabulous view. Dolphins swam by our boat, saw jumping tuna & rays. The crew was so attentive, having a variety of beverages and a huge snack! I would highly recommend Marea Alta for your small, private boat adventure.

They picked us up from Ocotal beach and whisked us away to see the area by boat. We spotted tuna and stingrays jumping about. The snorkeling was the best part. I can't count the different species of fish we saw. AMAZING! Super special was the octopus and beautiful blue starfish. We drove thru the bird estuary and then over to a cave. A short walk up a hill for stunning pictures. The had snacks and drinks aboard, which were delicious. Overall, a perfect day!
