“Best day of our trip”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Just a perfect day. The crew was outstanding. Ken was the best, he migled with all of us and made us feel like we owned the boat. Music, drink, food.. they set every thing up. On the ride out they threw lines in the water and we caught a Mahi Mahi. It was made into the best Cevechi and served for lunch along with BBQ chicken, homemade pico de gallo, guacamole, and even homemade chocolate chip cookies. Snokeling was great Ken and the crew were right with us and would catch blow fish and octopuss among others to let us touch for the ultimate close up experience. The crew even sailed out into the ocean to chase down whales that were spotted so we could experience whale and dolfin watching. It was a totally relaxing and incredible day. These guys do it right and make you feel comfortable while doing it.

“Sunset Catamaran Cruise”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The sunset catamaran cruise out of Tamarindo was one of the best times we had in Costa Rica. Captain Taca's knowledge of the ocean helped locate whales, dolphins, stingrays, and other tropical fish on our snorkel trip. We also caught 4 fish while trolling to and from the snorkel area. The food, drinks, and hospitality of the crew made this catamaran trip one of the best. Thanks again to Captain Taca, Carlos, Hellen, Ken, and Alex J. You guys were awesome host and made all of us aboard feel safe. Pura Vida!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Perfect Excursion!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was the perfect excursion to end our week in Tamarindo. Ken was the person who did it all - hosted, cleaned up, served, bartended and chatted up with everyone. He made the trip fun! El Captain Taca got us there safely along with their two crew mates Yassa and Carlos (I think I remember their names). They made sure everyone had a good time, good music on the boat and anytime there was a turtle or dolphin sighting, Taca would turn the boat to make sure everyone saw it. Drinks were plentiful and the snacks were just right and very delicious. It rained a bit on our way back but the crew made sure everyones safety was key and wiped down the floors constantly to make sure no on slipped.

“Muchos Gracias to Ken, Taca, Alex & Yasser!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

From the first handshake...until we stepped off the boat back at the beach, you guys were super friendly, funny and genuinely interested in all of us having a great time...which we did! We loved the adventure and you definitely lived up to your reputation for being the best of the sailing tours. The snorkeling was awesome and your crew made sure we saw things that we would have otherwise missed...everything from a starfish to manta ray to a puffer fish. The food was great, the drinks never ending and the soundtrack for the whole trip was awesome! The capstone was the sailing at sunset. Very memorable, so thank you very much to Ken, Taca, Alex & Yasser! This is the crew you want to request if you're going to go...highly recommended.
