Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: A full-service yacht charter and sailing tour, we cater to small groups and families to provide an intimate and all-inclusive experience of Guanacaste's coastline. Seeing wildlife can never be guaranteed, but we often see dolphins, sea turtles, jumping manta rays and depending on season and luck, humpback whales! Depending on weather, we select the best spot for snorkeling, kayaking, swimming and exploring secluded coastline. An experienced guide will lead you through the waters to discover species of fish, sting rays, starfish and various marine life. While you're in the water, we're in the kitchen! We serve a delicious meal complete with snacks, fresh cut fruit, Matteo's fresh and famous guacamole, and refreshing drinks including water, juices, sodas, beer, wine, local spirits and Prosecco.

This sail was the highlight of our trip. I highly recommend it. Matteo and his crew were very accommodating and friendly. The food and music were excellent and we had everything we needed for the day. Definitely worth it for a private sail. Wish we had booked it for more than a half day and will use them next time we return.

Matteo and crew were awesome. This experience was one of the highlights for our week in Costa Rica. Would definitely recommend the Manta Ray for one afternoon. We got to see a great sunset, go snorkeling, relax on the beach and boat. Also, had a great lunch on the boat. First class experience.

The crew on the manta ray were amazing. They took us on a beautiful tour, took us snorkeling and cooked for us on the boat. They made sure to prepare foods according to what we would and would not eat. We got to see dolphins up close and around the boat. The day culminated in a beautiful sunset.

We recently had a large family reunion in Costa Rica, and the day spent on the Manta Ray was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We were a large group (about 18), which is not always easy to handle. Matteo and his group did a fabulous job. They are obviously very prepared, and very organized and everything from getting us to/from shore/to the boat, to the onboard meal, the various docking/diving points was all seamless. It is clear that Matteo loves what he does, he is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and very easy going. My son, 10, was over the moon as Matteo let him "steer" the boat (at least, my son thought he was steering) as he pointed out certain fish and birds what ventured our way. A truly lovely day, spend with lovely people.Highly recommended!
