Relaxing!!!

Can't beat an open bar while sailing 😊. Felipe and the staff are all very friendly. Best to do the tour on a clear day to get good view of the sunset.

We reserved a private morning tour on the New Marlin catamaran a couple weeks ago for our wedding guests...and it was TOTALLY worth it!!! The crew picked us up on time at the beach in front of our resort, then took us on a memorable cruise along the coast to a cool snorkeling spot (be sure to check out the... More

We spent the day aboard the Marlin Tres, a catamaran anchored in the Tamarindo harbor. Great experience all around. Wonderful scenery, food, water activities and most of all a fantastic crew. They were so accommodating, always making sure that everyone on board was cared for. Open bar for the entire trip. Left at 1:30pm and returned around 6:30 so we... More

This was definitely one of out favorite parts of our recent Costa Rica honeymoon. The staff was so excellent and attentive. The drinks and food were great. The boat takes you to an excellent place to snorkel, and we were able to see lots of fish. I liked how they gave out noodles, since I'm not the most confident swimmer.... More

Smooth, Calm, Relaxing ride all the way to a hidden beach area for some snorkeling. Staff seemed professional and the food was excellent of course unlimited drinks was awesome. We were very fortunately to be accompanied by dolphins along the way.

Perhaps the most memorable part of our Costa Rica trip! The crew. Beyond friendly. Exceptional service and truly felt welcomed and appreciated. Jumped and swam in the clearest waters I've ever experienced. Kept the drinks coming and the best drinks I've ever had in my life (counting NYC to Tampa Bay and we are foodies). Must have the mojitos. Easy... More

Best boat tour compared to the other boats we saw of the same sort. Marlin del Rey had all the food, drinks and entertainment for everyone on board. It wasn't as crowded as the other boats and was bigger and nicer. A lot of people suggested blue dolphin, but luckily we chose Marlin del Rey because the blue dolphin boat... More

Had a fantastic trip on the sail boat!!! The crew as incredible and made delicious food and yummy drinks! The snorkeling was just OK. We had a blast sliding off the boat, playing in the waves, enjoying the paddle board and then sailing back and watching one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen! I highly recommend this one!

This was an amazing tour! It was extremely relaxing, there was amazing service, and the food was really good as well (especially the cookies). The boat was nice and clean, and it held lots of people without feeling overcrowded. The only thing about this tour that was not great was the snorkeling, this is only because there was not much...
