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

Our tour was wonderful. Our guide Evaristo was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our boat captain and guide were great at spotting exciting animals. We viewed a turtle out and about that I am still not sure how they spotted. We saw dolphins and humpbacks. The information provided about Costa Rica and their EcoTourism efforts was very interesting.

We had an amazing time on this tour. It's a must if you are visiting uvita. Our guides pointed out everything we would of never even noticed. We also saw 4 or 5 whales on the boat ride. I highly recommend

Our guide was a young and energetic fellow who gave us a good pre-tour introduction. We saw many humpback mommy whales with their babies which was a very beautiful experience. The trip started from the beach town of Uvita, lasted for about 31/2 to 4 hours. We would advise newcomers who want to go whale watching to take sea sickness... More

The staff were all super friendly and knowledgeable. I was the only English speaker on a boat of Spanish-speaking people and my guide made sure to translate the information especially for me. We ended up seeing 4 beautiful dolphins on our way to and from Cano Island. The snorkeling itself was very good but the reefs were kind of deep,... More

We did the Marino Ballena whale & dolphin watching tour with Bahia aventuras a few days ago and we really appreciated the tour. We saw whales very close from the boat and plenty of dolphins. Dean, our guide, was so nice and took us to the caves after the whale watching. Very nice experience!

We had an excellent time! Most our photos are on the gopro so we cannot upload here but I definitely recommend this exact trip! Our tour guide Alejandro and two others were excellent! They were fluent in english and spanish, knew the region, history, and geography inside and out. They were friendly, and we we saw whales less than 10... More
