True to its namesake; Costa Rica, which means "Rich Coast,"...

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"

We went on the sunset whale watching cruise, and saw spotted pacific dolphins! We did some snorkeling and had a very good meal but it was the crew that really made the trip. Such nice guys and a really cool vibe overall.

So, i'm not sure if I would rate this as high as I did if it was under normal circumstances... however they did a great job. There was a mechanical problem with the sail boat so we ended up going on with a much bigger boat with another company. This other boat was awesome - it had a sun deck,... More

We LOVED this cruise in Manuel Antonio. The staff was incredible and the cruise was so relaxing. They made us excellent drinks and we sailed for a long time just enjoying the sun and the breeze. We eventually went to a snorkeling spot and the guides showed us the best places to see fish. We stayed for a while and... More

Sunset Sails' afternoon cruise was the perfect farewell activity for our last day in Manuel Antonio! We saw lots of dolphins, enjoyed plentiful drinks, and felt so relaxed out on the water. Friendly staff, delicious food. Be wary snorkeling near Playa Biesanz. We ran into shallow rocks and something with a jellyfish-like sting, but this may not be common.

Very helpful and very accommodating staff. The sunset was great but snorkeling - had lots of golden thread in water and most of guests were in the water for only about 5 min and have to come back up to the boat to apply vinegar to cut down on the burning/stinging. My kids wore rash guard shirts and only legs... More

My husband, 5yo daughter and I recently went on the Sunset Sails cruise and it was more than we could have expected! the boat is more modest than the others at the commercial harbor, but with a 5yo on board, I wanted a smaller boat with less people. The staff was first class - Alex was extremely personable and knowledgeable.... More

We were picked up on time and taken to the marina. The crew was very fun and attentive, the food was surprising good for a small sail boat. We did see some dolphins and the beautiful coast and sunset.

Family run operation and great fun. We left the harbor with 22 other folks and the crew. They cranked up the Bob Marley and handed drinks around. Sailing fish and dolphins, nice views of coastline to Manuel Antonio. The crew and skipper are family, and so nice. Crew helped with snorkel gear, then we took turns on the water slide... More

We booked the sunset cruise at 11am and they had a van picking us up by 1:15pm! After a brief check in at the marina, we were on our way. The boat only had 14 of us, yet we had a full crew so lots of personal service. They brought us cocktails and beer to order and pineapple for snacks.... More
