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 went on the sailboat for a morning cruise. Menor was an excellent host and the whole crew, including the captain and the chef, did everything to make sure we enjoyed our time. We saw a small pod of spotted dolphins. After a few minutes, several other boats showed up, so our captain decided to leave so we didn't harass... More

We had a great trip this morning with Menor and Alex aboard the Lorelei. There were 6 of us, including 2 kids, 5 & 6 years old. Alex especially took great care of the kids, got them whatever juice they wanted, helped them with life jackets for swimming. They even have kid size snorkel gear. And the kids loved the... More

This tour seemed very unorganized. We were guaranteed to see dolphins (which is what I was most looking forward to) and we didn't see any, nor did we see any turtles. The weather was not great, and I understand that could be part of it, but when I asked if we would see dolphins they said yes (despite weather). Don't... More

We are so sorry to learn that you did not enjoy your tour with us. While we almost always see dolphins, there are rare instances when we do not. Unfortunately, you took the tour on one of those days. Like all wild animals, sightings are a little unpredictable and that's why we can't guarantee dolphins, even though we usually do... More

Just returned from a great morning onboard with Sunset Sails. Alex was an excellent host and ensured everybody had a wonderful morning. As it is off season there were only 6 passengers, which made if feel like an exclusive tour. We saw a great variety of sealife, including Spotted Dolphins, Pelicans and flying fish. Lunch was amazingly good, fresh fish... More

INCREDIBLE service. We had the best time on the morning cruise. Drinks were served endlessly by the friendliest staff. We followed around a pod of humpback whales. The last hour was spent with snorkeling, swim time, and lunch. As someone who has snorkeled before I was not so impressed with this part but I also didn't see it as the... More

Really great trip saw a humpback whale and her calf, then some great snorkelling. Recommend seasickness tablets if you are prone to travel sickness. Really friendly crew with good knowledge. Kids loved the slide at the back of the boat. Drinks were topped up regularly.

We bought our package at the beach, Marvin was very thorough explained everything without being pushy.He even gave us his number in case we had questions or problems. A shuttle picked us up at the hotel at the time we were told and off to the marina we went. They have a very organized system to get everyone checked in... More

The tour was the perfect length. We were able to see two pods of humpback whales, snorkel for a bit, and eat a delicious meal. It was possibly the best meal I have had so far. The boat was clean and the staff was friendly. I especially appreciate that this boat and crew did not harass the whales by getting... More

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
