True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast," Manuel Antonio's beautiful coast is rich in both marine and terrestrial wildlife. The mountain rain forest slopes right down to the beautiful white sand beaches.

A morning or afternoon (sunset) cruise aboard either our Sailboat, or Trimaran, is the perfect way to enjoy all that the Manuel Antonio Coast has to offer.

As you sail past the offshore islets, which serve as a rookery to many sea birds, including brown boobies, frigates and pelicans, you'll marvel at the graceful way they soar. You will thrill to their amazing displays of fishing prowess, as they dive into the ocean, and fly away with their catch.

As your boat glides through the water, you will likely encounter Dolphins, which love to swim in our bow wake. Occasional Giant Sea Turtles and whales are a special treat, when they appear.

One of the highlights of your tour is snorkeling, while at anchor in a beautiful Jungle Bay. All of your snorkel gear is provided by the crew of Sunset Sails. A guide will lead you to the reef, which is home to many species of beautiful and fascinating fish. If you float cracker crumbs, you'll be amazed, as schools of fish dart all around you, in a feeding frenzy. Parrotfish, damselfish, sargeant majors, wrasses, puffers and many more beautiful fish abound on the reef. If you have an underwater camera, you might want to bring it with you.

Of course, one of the real highlights of our Sunset Cruise, is the Sunset. As the sun sets into the ocean horizon, it often creates spectacularly beautiful displays of color. It's a perfect, romantic ending to a beautiful day in "Paradise"

Whether on our Trimaran or Sailboat, Sunset Sails Tours is your number one choice for a wonderful and relaxing boat tour in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

We had a great time on this trip, the crew were awesome, the food prepared by the chef was delicious and the cocktails potent! Snorkelling was fun, so was the whale chasing! We even saw it jump (eventually)! You don't see that every day here in England! Everyone is so friendly, we felt like we knew the crew for years!... More

This trip is for everyone! We had a large group and they accommodated us all. I know this is something they do all the time but they truly made us feel like it we've known them for years and they enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed theirs. Many got seasick as it was a first time experience for... More

I get seasick, so I should know better than to take boat tours, but we booked this anyway. I have to say, despite my queasiness, we had a really great time! First of all, they do give you some anti-motion sickness medicine before you leave, which I think is a nice touch, even if it didn't work for me. We... More

We went on the trimaran last week and the entire family had a great time! The crew is super professional and takes the time to talk to you and explain what you are seeing. The boat is so much fun with music playing and drinks flowing. We snorkeled and had so much fun going down the slide and jumping off... More

The crew was a LOT of fun, but kept it professional. They served us delicious rum drinks & a snapper that was out of this world! Their hospitality, combined with the reggae & Latin music, set the vibe for a relaxing afternoon on the water. We took in some beautiful views of the shoreline & Manuel Antonio Park. The afternoon...

Great way to spend a few hours and see the coast of Manuel Antonio! All of the staff were great, especially Chris. He took care of us all on the boat; explaining all of the necessary safety information, providing the drinks, and sharing info about all the sights we were seeing. You leave from the marina, sail down the coast,... More

The "rum drinks" were really good and always available 😀 We saw some dolphins and stopped to snorkel and swim. The snorkeling wasnt great but costa ricas waters arent the clearest . Really good fish for dinner prepared on the boat. Great trip , good... More

I had a lovely relaxing trip on a catamaran with this company. It departs from the marina down the coast from Manuel Antonio National Park, and sails out past the park, round some small islands, and then anchors near the coast for swimming and food before heading back. It's around trip of about 3-4 hours. The crew are lovely and... More
