The sunset sail was absolutely fabulous. There was plenty of room in the boat for everyone to stretch out and take in the sun or take in the beautiful sights. The food was excellent and you could tell that it had been homemade. The liquor flowed. We were given the opportunity to swim or snorkel when they anchored off an island and many people took time to go on shore. It is an experience not to be missed. The crew cater to you every need. When I return I will again go out on the sunset cruise. Hurrah for the Marlin del Rey

“The Highlight of our Trip The Marlin Del Ray”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

My wife and I have been coming to Costa Rica for eleven years now and the highlight of our trip every year now is The sunset Cruise on The Marlin Del Rey.... You have to experience it !!!! The crew is so friendly and helpful ... The Marlin del Rey is a beauitul Cat with lots of room to roam around and enjoy the Most Beautiful coastline of Costa Rica.... They stop at a little cove and you can snorkle and swim and we even saw a whale and a sea turtle... Then on the way back you get to have food and drinks and watch the Most Wonderful Sunset in The world.... The Food The drink and The crew are top notch.... It truly was the Hightlight of our Trip... Do It !!!!! You won't be disappointed

“Incredible Trip!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Tamarindo Cost Rica is a wonderful place to spend a vacation. So much to do and see. Weather is fabulous and the locals are friendly and great to be around. From Zip Lining, to Golf, Boating trip down a river, a day at the spa and just beaching it, you can't beat Tamarindo. The highlight is the sailing tour on the Marlin Del Rey. Fabulous food, sightseeing, snorkeling, and drinks all for a very reasonable price. The crew was great and coming in for the sunset was picture perfect. As a photographer, my camera was always clicking. I would recommend this trip to anyone and make sure you take the sunset cruise on the Marlin Del Rey. Excellent !!!!

“INcredible sunset cruise”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

My brother and I visited Tamarindo in May, 2012. We lucked upon the Marlin Del Rey, sunset, snorkle, and dinner catamaran tour. It was the highlight of our trip......Enjoyed it so much, we went to Cocoa Beach and did it again on their second vessel! Great, made on the spot, pico de gallo and guacamole and chips, fruit, and chicken dinner made for the perfect meal....Unlimited beer and mixed drinks, calm water snorkel location and an incredible sunset sail back to Tamarindo....Definitely a 10, for this type of tour......Cocoa beach was equally incredible....very social, . friendly, and bilingual crew........Music was a highlight too as Phillipe and Ken, joyfully danced with all willing partners! Large spacious vessel!

“Best snorkel/sail trip we've ever been on”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We've done snorkel sail trips in Key West and on Kauai and this was by far the most amazing. For a relatively inexpensive price tag, we received the best hospitality, an open bar, and an absolutely delicious lunch. The crew, including Ken, Phillipe and boat Capt. Taca were gracious, attentive, funny and engaging. We felt perfectly safe and at ease. Watching the sunset under sail and over the Pacific was a once in a lifetime experience. Truly our favorite experience in Costa Rica.
