Captain Jack picked us up at the Dreams Hotel beach at 1 pm and tendered us out to the sailboat. It could not have been easier for the four of us. He generally takes only 8 people on his trips so there is plenty of room either under the Bimini top or relaxing on the bow of the boat. Once... More

Like the caption makes us feel we did good. We have a good snorkel spot in the high wind the only thing we can't do much about is the cold water . Upside is the visibility has been great . Cheers Jack More

For anyone staying at the Dreams, this is a must do excursion. Not only is it the best value for the money, it's an experience that you will not forget. We were lucky enough to see humpback whales while sailing, then we went to a perfect snorkeling spot where the water was a smooth as glass. After that, we at... More

We were lucky a few times in the last week to see the humpback whales. The best thing for me is listening to them when snorlking it a special treat . Thanks for coming out and leaving a great review. Cheers Jack More

Captain Jack was very easy to reach and book. He picked us up directly at our resort (via the beach) This excursion was perfect for my husband and I. He was able to fish going out to sea and also on the way back to the resort, and I was able to snorkel which was awesome. Captain Jack provided all... More

Thanks for the review and posting photos . Nothing better in sea food than catch of the day. We had 4 days of good fishing. Yesterday the solar lunar tables predicted good fishing we caught nothing . I guess that's why it's called fishing not catching . Thanks for the review. Cheers Jack More

Beautiful day on the ocean! A little fishing, a little snorkeling, some turtle sightings and a delicious meal that ended with a beautiful sunset. We felt like we were spending the day with an old friend rather than being on a big cheesy excursion. Grab a couple of friends and go hang out with Captain Jack! Contact him direct to... More

Captain Jack and the crew were amazing. They were very attentive, knowledgeable and great. The sailing was great, the snorkeling was great and the meal aboard the boat was phenomenal. If I had to do it over I would spend a full day with Captain Jack instead of half a day. To top off a wonderful afternoon, we saw dolphins... More

We went out for a snorkeling excursion aboard Capt Jacks beautiful sail boat. We not only had a bit of time to snorkel, but also saw dolphins and the unexpected treat of seeing whales breaching! The trip overall was fantastic and one of the best experiences of our trip! highly recommend

We went aboard Captain Jack's sail boat and we became explorers. Our trip was loaded with sailing, snorkeling, exploring the coastline, and enjoying the fabulous food created by Jacks partner Marenge . We learned about the history of the north coast of Costa Rica and we sampled the local fare and libations . If you like to see Whales,Turtles, Dolphins,Sea... More
