My husband and I happened across “Captain Jack” on the beach of Dreams Las Mareas and decided it sounded like an amazing excursion. Jack and his wife were amazing. Jack was incredibly knowledgeable about the sea life and was able to show us a family of whales, sea turtles, a dolphin, and excellent snorkeling. The meal on the boat was one of the best we had in Costa Rica and both were incredibly hospitable. I highly recommend this tour!

As a family of four, we were fortunate to book a sunset sail on 10th of August. What a fantastic team Jack his wife and Randall are. It was a truly fantastic experience, Jack's knowledge is pretty impressive and I had the opportunity to have a good chat with him on many subjects. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling and the lunch was very special.As a family to observe so many varieties of fish, sea turtles and dolphins was magical. Looking forward to doing this again when we return, hopefully to catch a sighting of whales( Not this time haha, but thats nature).

Thanks for coming out on Surfari. This time of year we see whales on most of our trips. Tofay September 28 th wind from the south making for rough conditions west of el Jobo. We have the boat in bahia salinas were its flat water . Snorkling is not great as ocean is churned up. Sailing is good. Cheers Jack

Thanks for taking the time to do a review. Whales at this time of year are frequent. They have their babies here and get them ready for migration back to southern waters. Cheers Jack

My husband and I booked with Capt. Jack. We sailed along the coast and snorkeled in a beautiful cove. Capt. Jack and his crew were awesome! His wife made us a very nice lunch while on board. We were lucky enough to see humpback whales! We would highly recommend sailing with Surfari del Mar!

So, today was epic. Went on a sunset cruise. Captain Jack asks me if I want to toss out a line. I’m not the biggest outdoorsman. But when in Rome. Not even ten minutes later, I’m wrestling this Mahi in Costa Rica! They haven’t seen too many Mahi recently he said. We saw dolphin, sting rays, pigmy killer whales, turtles, etc. We docked the sailboat off some rocks and his wife made us this epic lunch right there on the boat. Unreal day I’ll NEVER forget! I told my wife, do you know how many times I’m going to start stories off with friends and coworkers now? “So, I’m reeling in this monster Mahi Mahi off some rocks in Costa Rica with Captain Jack...”
