I join two naturalistic tours with Bahia Aventuras. Our guide, Alejandro, was really good and also the organization. I went to Corcovado in one day tour; it was very interesting even if I suggest to stay at least one night in the park in order to see more animals and to live the real wild atmosphere of this wonderfoul park....

Their snorkelling excursion starts from Uvita beach right next to the famous whales tail and whale island. The 1hr and 10 min boat ride out to cano island was delightful. We seen dolphins on the way and then went snorkelling. Seen stingray and barracuda. Went to violines island next where part of Jurassic park was filmed. Absolutely picturesque! On the... More

Bahia snorkeling trip was great. Guides were informative. Fish were amazing and the lunch on the island was fresh and delicious. Their boat only handles about a dozen guests making it comfortable and personal. Other boats I saw had to have 30 - 50 people.

Our tour guide was a ton of fun! He made the trip really enjoyable and told us all about the area and what we were seeing. We ended up getting to see the spotted dolphins, which made the trip, but honestly, the crew was so fun and the sites were so beautiful, that I would have thought it was worth... More

We made a reservation on December 4th for a snorkeling trip on December 29th. We then planned quite an extensive vacation around being there at their office on that date. We got there to learn that we didn't have a reservation because we hadn't paid a deposit. Note how their email to us started on December 4th: "Dear David thanks... More

This tour exceeded our family's expectations and was well worth the money. We are a family of five and our kids are 11, 9, and 7. The guides were competent, professional, and sweet. The hikes were beautiful and very manageable - we saw a lot of wildlife. Including dolphins on the way here - so close that we felt like... More

This is a TOP notch tour company! Facilities are kept in A+ condition, boats are very well maintained and the food and snacks are delicious. The guides are very knowledgeable about the aquatic, bird and land life that live in the area. I've taken my family to Corcovado and Cano Island with them and today we saw Ventanas, swam at... More

We had a great time on this tour and saw a mother and baby humpback whale really close up to the boat. We didn't have to go too far out and the sea was reasonably calm. We spent most of the tour just following them and four males who spent some time popping up and around the boat for fun.... More

My reviews start with the boring bits and I make no apologies for that! They came over as a well organised company. The meeting point was pleasant and clean with nice toilets! Our guide was honest, this was a whale searching trip and spotting one was not a complete certainty but highly likely. They also said that they would not... More
