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.

While in Los Suenos for a conference we decided in advance to rent the Ashuma catamaran thru Kayak Jaco, captained by Captain Neil Kahn. The communication beforehand was great so we knew exactly what to expect and Captain Neil delivered on every single detail. He operates a very safe boat and goes above and beyond to make sure his passengers... More

The trimaran sailboat tour is a fantastic option for families that come to Costa Rica with young children. We took our two children, aged 3 and 1.5 years, and they loved it! Captain Neil was very friendly, informative, and easygoing. The trimaran felt very safe, even with our two busy toddlers. We enjoyed some sailing, swimming, and snorkeling. Neil had... More

Since the first contact by phone and then, a very well structured email communication process with Yasmin, ending with a full service at the beach, and great quality kayaks (secure, stable and fast), made the one-day trip to a beautiful beach (Agujas), travelling down to Limoncito and Mantas, a amazing experience. Yasmin (on the phone and email) and Kenny (at... More

The hotel we stayed at suggested we go through Kayak Jaco since we didn't have much planned while we were there. I'm so glad we did! My boyfriend and I were picked up from the hotel by taxi and taken to Kayak Jaco. We went at 8am and were the only ones on the trip! It was great! We walked... More

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
