I thoroughly enjoyed my daytime tour with Captain Matteo and crew. They were incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable, played great music, cooked good food, and took us to a great location for snorkeling/kayaking. This tour has been my favorite experience in Costa Rica, and I highly encourage others to book with Manta Ray!

Captain Matteo, Rene and Fernanda were super accommodating and provided an excellent voyage: we cruised to a snorkeling location, the booze flowed freely, a pod of dolphins joined us briefly, and we sailed off into an incredible sunset. There were nine travelers (four Italians, an El Salvadoran and two other Americans) on the boat, which is about as many as you want in order to maintain a high level of comfort on the Manta Ray. Rene guided the snorkel, taking us to close-up encounters with puffer fish, starfish, anemones, etc. The visibility was decent, but we've snorkled the Ningaloo Reef, Lady Elliot Island and Bora Bora, so for us it was more about getting some good water time. Lunch was burgers, fresh fruit, guacamole and...more beverages. Picturesque trip. Incredibly awesome captain and crew.

On 4/18/2017, seven of us, including 2 children, booked the Manta Ray for a 4 hr sunset excursion on a picture perfect sunny day. The staff of Manta Ray Captain Matteo, Rene and Jeffery could not have been better hosts. We sailed for about an hour, watching Manta Ray leap from of the water, Dolphins swimming in groups, as we sailed to a beach east of Portrero to snorkel under the guide of Rene. Meanwhile, Mateo and Jeffery prepared us a wonderful authentic meal. The underwater life attracted to the coral was magnificent. Beer, rum punch, water, and other beverages were readily available. The music selection on the whole trip seemed as if it was planned just for us. The 4 hour sail ended with a sunset that will remain in our memory for a lifetime. My wife, mother-in-law and sister-in-law all had tears of joy running down their face.

We arrived back at the dock, salty, well-fed, and with a bit too much sun for some. We thanked Matteo and the staff for making my trip well worth the day at sea. This is a MUST!

A fabulous cruise with a fabulous crew. A cruise with a personal touch. We snorkeled, had dinner, listened to great music with an amazing backdrop of sun and sea. When the sun was ready to set Captain Mateo maneuvered the catamaran perfectly for a wonderful sunset. We felt that the crew really cared about our comfort and happiness! We would book them again should we come back to Playa Flamingo!
