“Well worth doing......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Charming guy, good assistant.
A wonderful afternoon.
Ok, so the boat is rather elderly, but she was under sail much of the time, and it was lovely.
Good food, as much and as you would like to drink.
A thoroughly nice afternoon.
Expensive, but memorable. Go for it.

“Must Do Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

Captain Brad and crew were so welcoming, boat was immaculate, we had plenty of room very comfortable for our family of four. We never felt rushed and felt very safe. Capt Brad is very knowledgable of the area and gave us tips on how to enjoy the rest if our trip. We went snorkeling and again felt very safe his crew member, Daniel, went with us. We all loved Daniel very nice, calm and can dive down and catch puffer fish, that was fun to watch while snorkeling. Lunch was delicious, might sound crazy but was the best food we had while here in costa rica so far. We caught two fish a barracuda and a Jack Creville. Toward the end of the day we just sat back and relaxed, listened to music, and watched a beautiful sunset. Out of everything we have done so far here in Costa Rica this was our favorite! Don't go with anyone else, you will not be disappointed.

“Awesome Sailing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Capitan Brad and he crew were awesome. We sailed with our family (wife, and 4 Girls aged 7, 10, 14 and 16) and had a great time. The Sailboat was in excellent condition and more than enough room for our family and could have had a few more as well. We sailed up the coast, had great views of the coastline and beautiful sunset. As my 10 year old the tacos were great. We will sail again with Capitan Brad and his crew.

“Amazing Day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We had a girls trip planned for all of us to meet in Costa Rica from Montana, London, and China. This was an amazing day spent on the water with great food, beautiful sights and fun facts about the area. We even caught a fish! It was so much fun snorkeling and we came in just as the rain started to sprinkle down. The highlight of the trip by far! Also saw turtles, rays, tons of fish and took some great pics. I can't tell you how much we wanted to stay for good.

“Wowed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

My husband and I were definitely wowed by our sunset sail with Captain Brad. We had high expectations based on what we had read and our experience completely surpassed them. Brad is so calm, cool, and collected. He makes you feel at ease and you can really relax, feel catered to, and enjoy the amazing natural surroundings. Beautiful memories to last a long time!
