An afternoon with Captain Jack on the Surfari Del Mar is pure heaven! We had great weather and perfect wind and just the sailing experience alone would have been fantastic! But CaptainJack and his lovely first mate, Mirella, made sure our day was absolutely special and unique. We found a beautiful place to anchor and went snorkeling near a reef.... More

Thanks for the review . Mirellas food is a great part of our tours . We live here in a very windy part of Costa Rica. Good thing is the wind is off shore as we sail near the shore we get plenty of wind but no waves. Cheers Jack More

We went out with Jac for snorkeling and sailing. Just ask for Jac on the beach outside Dreams las Mareas. What a beautiful day we had! The wind was strong but Jac is a pro. Didn't see much when snorkeling but what a treat when we got back on board. Not only does Mirella keep your drinks coming, she is... More

Thanks for coming out on Surfari. Water has been cold it is clear but the fish are not as abundant as when it's warm . Once the wind dies down the water will warm up again. Cheers Jack More

We joined fellow Canadian, Captain Jack (he goes by both Jack and Issac), and his crew this week and it was great! From the moment Jack met us on the beach until he dropped us off again, it was just a fun and relaxing afternoon out. Our kids (10 and 7) thought it was great as well and as soon... More

Thanks for taking the time to do a review. Catching fish with young fishermen on board is always fun. Taking your catch back to the one of the hotels restaurants is a great way to enjoy your catch. Cheers Jack More

We were lucky to catch a fish on your day as the water has been cold and the fishing poor. Yesterday water was considerably better although that lowers the visibility for a few days as the plankton dies off. Thanks for leaving a review. Cheers Jack More

Do yourself a favor, book this sail!! The beauty is unreal of both the sea and land. The water is so clear around the "point"..the water "statues" hold true to their names. Jack(Issac) is a great captain.. a wealth of knowledge, years of experience and a passion for what he does, not too mention he makes an awesome bean dip!!... More

If your thinking of staying at Dreams Las Mareas in Costa Rica then you HAVE to contact captain Jack for a snorkelling, fishing, sunset trip. We pre booked and we were promptly greeted by Jack on the beach and ferried to his lovely yacht. It was very windy that day but Jacks boat was very stable and the crew were... More

Anyone staying at the Dreams, this is a must do. What an amazing day. Full of adventure, beautiful views, great food and amazing Captain Jack. We joined Captain Jack back at the beginning of February and had an incredible time. He is a one of a kind captain and has so much experience and knowledge of Costa Rica.
