A big thank you to Judd and Johnathan for making are last day in Costa Rica so much fun. We were a party of 8 and it was worth paying that bit extra to have a private cruise. We were met at the Mariana by Captain Judd who took us out to the boat where we were given a safety briefing and what to expect from the afternoon, we were fortunate that the weather was amazing and what was special was that we saw whales. Both judd and Johnathan made us feel very welcome, drink was always on hand and when we stopped for a late lunch we were served chicken tacos’s which were outstanding . Would definitely recommended Serendipity tour for this unforgettable trip.

We did the daylong sail with captain Dara, Jonathan and Jeffery. Eleven of 3 generations made up of 6 adults and 5 young folks from 11-22.
One family had done this cruise a few years ago and loved it.
Though we were at a VRBO by Samara 2 hours south this seemed to be the best option since there’s little other than fishing boats available in that area.
Driving up CR winding highways is always exhilarating(!!) but a late breakfast at the Surf Box was a real treat, and only around the corner from the charter parking area.
J & J were there with the boat to ferry us out to meet Captain Dara and the 50” sailing ship.
The total experience was a wonder!! Knowledgeable and entertaining skipper and crew attentive to our every need and request.
Swim and snorkel a new experience for us older folks!! Cowboy caviar and chicken tacos a hit for all even our two vegetarian leaning youth!
Worth the effort and expense!!

So happy to get you all out again. There is no greater compliment than repeat clients, especially ones that would make the drive from Nosara! Thanks for choosing us again and for taking the time to write a review.

This is the perfect sailing charter if you want to spend a glorious afternoon in the ocean. Captain Judd made everyone feel welcome and was very knowledgeable about the area. The boat is clean and beautiful and there was plenty of room for all the guests. They only take 13 or 14 people so it was not crowded and we never felt rushed through activities or that we were bothering anyone. The snorkeling was amazing! The guide knew where everything was and saw things well before anyone else could and brought them up the group to see. He even tried to catch an octopus that nobody else would have even noticed! On top of the very delicious lunch that was served, they caught a Spanish Mackerel and then cut it into sashimi that we all shared during the ride back to the dock. This trip is incredible from the moment you step onto that boat. Don't miss this one.

Thanks Michelle!

What a treat to have some fresh Sashimi. Nothing will every taste the same again, I'm afraid. Thanks for the review and the recommendation.

Serendipity was a recommendation from our friends that live in Costa Rica. They did not steer us wrong. We had a great time! From the food to the drinks to the snorkeling everything was 5-stars! Captain Judd and Johnathon did an excellent job taking care of us. Johnathon took us snorkeling. He found an octopus for the kids to look at. Which they thought was really cool. We highly recommend Serendipity!

We booked Serendiptiy Charters prior to our arrival in Costa Rica and unfortunately for us it rained the entire week we were there. Serendipity Charters offered us a refund if we didn't want to go out in the rain but our group was so tired of being inside all week we decided to go for it. We were glad we did as it was the highlight of our trip. All the comments mentioned in the other reviews held true for us, the crew was great, food tremendous, drinks plentiful, snorkeling terrific. So rain or shine, Serendity Charters does a fantastic job.

So glad you decided to sail despite the rain. It was very rare weather for this time of year, sorry that it happened to be during your vacation. Normally, we don't see this type of rain until October. Well, we will take what we can get since it had been very dry. :) Thanks for the review and for sailing with us and for making the most of a wet day!
