We had such a terrific adventure, with the most amazing payout of swimming among galaxies of glowing, sparkling, fantastical bio-luminescence. Swimming in the bio-luminescence felt very much like a subdued version of the whale scene in Life of Pi, except instead of leaping sea creatures and Hollywood magic, it's just you peacefully floating in the milky way. We were a multi-generational group of women, ages 10 - 50. The clouds really opened up on us while we were kayaking, so we went to shore a little early and ate coconut and pineapple while getting dumped on, which some of us enjoyed more than others ;) To warm up we started wading in the water and as the night became darker the bio-luminescence started to become more and more visible. At one point we got to use snorkel masks which really gave you a truly immersive experience. Alberto, the owner who took us on the tour, was a wonderful tour guide and teacher, and very patient with our group. It was too wet and dark to get any pictures of the bio-luminescence, but I cannot recommend more strongly that if you are on the fence with this tour, you should absolutely do it. It will be going on my "to do" tour list for future Osa visits.

The tour was great! Despite we got under the rain, it still was relaxing and informative. Alberto (our guide) is skilled, quite and intelligent person. He provided a lot of interesting information in English about nature and wild world of the river. All his equipment is clean and durable. I’m glad we picked exactly this tour on Trip Adviser. Thank you, Alberto for your hospitality and wonderful tour. One more thing, our son who is almost five years old was with us, and he was absolutely happy. So, don’t be scared, take your kids with you, they will have fun!)

This tour was incredible. We had the opportunity to go out with Alberto who runs the company. The sunset was okay, but after the sunset is when the magic happens. We paddled to the most amazing beautiful beach, ate coconut and pineapple and swam in the dark with the bioluminescence. The incredible night was even more amazing because there was quite a bit of lightning off in the distance and we got rained on towards the end. After the tour we had a wonderful dinner in the cafe prepared by Alberto’s family. Highly recommend this laid back, unique adventure.

My wife and I found this place while looking for a good coffee shop, but we found something way better! To start, the food and drinks in their new coffee shop is incredibly tasty and their service is superb! We told them we were looking for some adventures and they offered us their kayak tours. We decided to take the bioluminescent kayak tour to try and it was so incredible! We completely fell in love with the experience. It was both very relaxing and exciting and the whole tour is very well designed. You get to experience the magic of Golfo Dulce with its amazing scenic views and biodiversity and a very professional service from the tour guides. We were fascinated so we decided to go in a second tour to the manglar and it was exceptional as well. Do not hesitate in booking tours with this family owned business, you'll love every minute of this incredible experiences!

This tour was a really enjoyable and unexpected delight. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and personable - we couldn't have asked for better. Sunset kayaking in Golfo Dulce was beautiful; we didn't see any dolphins but we did see turtles, waterbirds and wintering shorebirds. The sunset delivered beautifully, but the absolute highlight was experiencing the bio-luminescence after dark; this was a magical experience, especially the snorkeling. Safety was addressed thoroughly and was never a concern. I can't recommend this experience highly enough.
