“Incredible Sunset Cruise”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Crew and Captain were one of the best! They were welcoming, warm, and acoomodating--made it a point to make sure everyone was comfortable and was constantly checking to see if we were good with the food and drinks. Lots of cervezas! :)

Great way to start off your trip as soon as you arrive. It's as relaxing as you're going to get next to laying out on the beach. Best to do a group tour so you can meet other travelers and it makes it cheaper. We met people from all around the world and are still friends after leaving Costa Rica.

The only thing we wished was that we got to play around in the water longer than for 25 minutes. It's difficult to snorkel and do kayaking in the little time that was allotted. You really only had time to do one or the other (all gear was provided!). Other than that, incredible!

“THIS IS A DON'T MISS!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Our cruise on the Hibiscus was FABULOUS! We enjoyed it so much we booked a second cruise later in the week. The catamaran is very nice and spacious and we were able to sail the entire afternoon which was such a treat. The crew cooked a delicous lunch ( the quacamole is incrediable!! ) and we always had something to drink in our hand. What makes Hibiscus stand out so much above other cruises is the incrediably friendly staff. From Kylie and Sigrid in the office to Captain Judd and his crew on board these people know hospitality! Such a great way to spend an afternoon!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Both my wife and I found the day excursion on Hibiscus great. Perhaps more intimate with not so many people crowding about as on the other craft, one launching craft versus three. Staff were very accomodating and friendly. We were introduced to a Sea B Que... being a land lubber...which we found great. Would do it again at the drop of a hat. Hold onto your hat and have a fantastic time.

“Awesome time!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

What a great time! It was a perfect way to end our one month stay in Costa Rica! Great company with awesome staff. The boat was so nice and the food and drinks were awesome. We sailed around for quite some time listening to relaxing music, and everyone was so mellow. We saw many manta rays jumping out of the water. We went snorkelling for a long time, then sailed back in the sunset. Great time, and worth the money. I will do this again next time I am in Tamarindo!
