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"

I went on a sunset cruise with the Sunset Sails company through Hostel Vista Serena. The tour was great! Left at 1:30pm from the Quepos Marina and drove out into the open ocean while serving mango juice-rum drinks. The captain took us to see dolphins! Then they headed in towards the coast for snorkeling. The snorkeling was not great because... More

This was by far one of our favourite experiences of our visit to Costa Rica. We did the evening tour, so we were able to see the sunset on our way back to marina. Whales, dolphins, tropical fish were all part of the experience. Alex and crew clearly love to show off their beautiful country and have a passion for... More

This was an awesome excursion. The food was delicious and prepared right on the boat. We were able to see false killer whales and humpback whales, pretty rare according to Alex and the rest of the crew. This is definitely the company to go to.

Went on the Sunset Sails Trimaran sunset tour and found the experience to be top notch. From check-in it was easy to tell that Sunset Sails is about friendliness, while providing a professional, classy experience. I was impressed with how clean the trimaran was when we first stepped on, barefooted of course. These guys understand that 1st impressions go a... More

We had fun on the boat and saw dolphins briefly. I chickened out on snorkeling, but my husband got some great pictures with the under water camera. The soda and dinner was included and they made us chicken since we aren't a fan of fish. It tasted wonderful. The crew was very nice and friendly and one of the crew... More

We originally wanted to go on the big catamaran tour but heard that it was a 'party boat' so we opted for this much smaller trimaran instead. It was only about 15 of us so it was quiet and very relaxing. We went snorkling near a rock and saw loads of fish. By the time we left there were 3... More

Went with my friends on our last day in Costa Rica and had such a great time! We got to go snorkeling, go down the slide, eat great food, drink, and see dolphins!

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.
