Since 1998 Kayak Jaco has been introducing travelers to the joy of getting out on the water of the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The coastline is spectacular and the beaches are pristine. Our sea kayaks, outrigger canoes, stand up paddle boards and sailboat are the best way to enjoy these coastal waters. We don't pollute or disrupt the balance of nature; we just paddle through our small slice of it, not leaving a trace. If you seek "Fun on the Water" Kayak Jaco has the tour for you:• Independent folks love our kayaks• Groups and clubs are fascinated by our unique outrigger canoes• Those who are serious about kicking back adore our sailboat• People looking for exercise can try SUP. Snorkeling is included on these tours (when conditions permit) and it enables you to get even closer to the best that Costa Rica has to offer - it's nature. Since 1998, Kayak Jaco has been running safe, sustainable, enjoyable tours and we strive everyday to ensure that your trip will be a wonderful Costa Rica memory for years to come.

First class tour with superb captain Neil! Children friendly activity, excellent service, safe and a beautiful way to experience the ocean and under water sea life. My kids had an amazing time and I would strongly recommend Neil and his team.

Captain Neil took my husband, our two teen daughters and myself on a wonderful excursion in his trimaran sailboat. We saw pristine beaches, loads of jumping sting rays, an amazing sunset and to make the whole adventure perfect: circa ten jumping dolphins followed us for a bit. The dolphins were close enough for us to take photos and video on... More

Captain Neil took my husband and I, our 4 and 6 year old, and my husband's father out on a 4 hour catamaran trip. It was nothing short of the most extraordinary experience. Captain Neil was very knowledgeable (he called the night before to discuss the weather to make sure we would have the best trip possible), had great stories,... More

. Great customer service and transportation. We had a great time! The kayaking tour did everything they could to make sure we had the best experience. I watched them deal with a difficult customer and was truly impressed.

The kayaks seemed fine. They had 1 or 2 person kayaks. Our party was 5 adults and had 2 guides. Kenny and Jason were excellent guides. It was my first time kayaking. They were very helpful and friendly. The water was calm, which made it a lot easier. We went snorkeling near the rocks and our guides pointed out some... More

We were a group of 8. There were three guides and a nine seater canoe. Everyone but myself, and one of the guides, Stefano got on the canoe, equipped with outriggers to make it sturdy. We took a kayak. Often, we stopped to admire the nesting frigate birds and pelocans. I am 14 and Soccer/football mad. Stefano was very talkstive... More

Neal and Wilbert took my three friends and myself out for a five hour sail on July 4th. We were in Jaco for seven days on vacation. The day we spent sailing was one of our most memorable days. We had a great time. Neal provided us a very relaxed, safe, and fun experience. He provided food, drinks, and alcohol.... More

Did the snorkeling and kayaking trip. Had a great time. Excellent guides. Enjoyed the kayak out, the time in the water, and the time to rest and eat fruit on the beach. One of the highlights of our time near Jaco.
