      Amazing family experience
      We had an amazing tour and day at Turtle Island. Chris was our tour guide and he did an incredible job of giving us a lot of Costa Rican history during the boat ride (which was unexpected and highly amazing!) Our tour guide was super friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and helpful. We loved snorkeling, the refreshments on the boat, and having lots of time to relax and enjoy Turtle Island. We saw dolphins (a total win with our kids) and enjoyed a great lunch. Highly recommend this tour!

      Our best day in Costa Rica.
      Visiting turtle island has been the best day we had in Costa Rica. We chose this tour because it picked us up directly at our hotel, the service was incredible, the large boat with only 11 passengers on board, the best we saw on the island. The food was great. Snorkeling was our favorite part, our guide accompanied us and showed us many animals, they even allowed us to stay for 1 hour. I definitely recommend this company. Other friends left with another company and their experience was terrible unlike us, in the end they had to go look for them somewhere else.

      Too long of a commute
      Our first time in Costa Rica. We stayed in Hermosa which was 1.5 hours from the Marina. Then the boat ride to Isla Tortuga was 1 hour and 20 minutes. We stopped and saw monkeys-very cool and then stopped to snorkel for about 30 minutes before arriving to Tortuga. The boat was small and cramped; they provided water. The island was beautiful and Costa Rica is gorgeous! We were just disappointed in the long commute and cramped boat. The lunch was very good and they provided us with lots to drink and eat! Everything in the island was an extra cost (chairs, bathroom, any activity). This was our least favorite of all the tours we did.

      Great trip that was fun for our entire family of 6. The captain was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. We saw lots of beautiful fish, lizards, dolphins, and spider monkeys.

      Great family experience
      We were on a great boat with twin outboard engines - safe and comfortable. Small intimate group - great for families. The crew was awesome. They love the area, sharing the history and knowledge of the local animals and fish. Food was amazing as well! Would highly recommend. Island was beautiful and peaceful.

      Rest and Relax
      What a Wonderful day from start to finish. Our every need from morning to the most incredible sunset was met with drinks, food, and activity. Recommending the day with Coastcat is worth the journey.

      Fabulous day kn Tortuga Island
      Fabulous tour!! The staff was absolutely incredible! Attentive to everyone's needs. The island is so peaceful and stunning. We had a delicious lunch, snorkeled, hiked, relaxed, and banana boat for the adventurous ones! The tunes came on and we sang and danced on the boat ride back to Jaco! I would absolutely go on this tour again!!

      Our best day on Costa Rica
      My husband and I just finished 11 wonderful days in Costa Rica, this was our first time in Costa Rica. We were meet at our airbnb on Jaco town at 7:10. The boat tour exceeded our expectations and left us with lasting memories. A big boat very cean with an area to sunbathing. Comunication with the company was excellent from end to end. Capt. Marco and his crew were super nice, they would often stop the boat along the way to point thesevout and to provide us a lot of information about the wildlife. On board we were only 14 passengers. Plus is better to avoid the packed tours, we were the last boat to leave the island and we did snorkeling for 45 min. We are thankful for their flexibilitly, if I could give them 6 starts I woulg give them 10. guys!!.

      Great tour 100/100
      Great tour. 100/1o 00 we we're a party of 8 looking to avoid The crowed tours. Our day began on our airbnb, Andres (drivers) pick up us at 7:00 am to take us to Puntarenas on the marina a Big boat awaits for us. One of The Highline of the tour was the number of passengers, we were only 12 passengers onboard. The tour is very Nice, takes You through diferente island (monkeys island, the stone Arch), emanuel our guide gave us a lot of información about the wildlife of the stone, a plus for us. We spend around 5 hours on the beach, where emanuel provide us fruits (all You can eat), a great lunch prepared on the island by Miriam the Cook. At the end we were so glad with our choose cause we saw other boat same SIDE with 30 or 40 people on board. We highly recomend this company. Thank You ema we had a great day!!!

      Cancelled on us.
      First excursion in Costa Rica and they cancelled at 545pm the night before. They said their Capt got hurt and they didn’t have a back up Capt till a day later. We only had one day open to re-schedule and they would or could not re-schedule us for that day. Waiting on our refund. Disappointed in the slow response from Tourismo Maritimo which didn’t allow us to rebook with someone else. Spent a lot time texting with Viator to get the vendor to respond. This was an all day trip and they act like visitors have nothing else planned for a whole day. They don’t care, just another tourist. Viator’s response, relax you’re in Costa Rica, who cares you missed one of the main things you wanted to do.

      Amazing Excursion!
      We loved this excursion! The guides were amazing and made the experience that much better. We saw so many cool fish and sea creatures, spider monkeys and even Peccarins on the island. I highly recommend this excursion. I even felt like it was such a great price for such a long boat ride, snorkeling, lunch and the island!!

    Our trip got canceled the day before due to some issues with the boat, but they offered us to join the trip the following day (or a full refund); we understand this can happen. The communication with the place was great.
    The island is very nice, and a great experience to be on a tropical island. The food was great. You do get charged for using the sand chairs on the beach as well as for anything else on the island.
    My only small comment is with regard to snorkeling. We looked forward to the snorkeling and wildlife as much as the island.
    Snorkeling was nothing close to snorkeling in a tropical sea or reef. The snorkeling is close to a rocky area of the island, with very few fish and many people in the water. Our guide was feeding the fish to attract more fish (not ideal), and although this technically counts as "snorkeling," this is an oversell for what is actually there. We did see the spider monkeys, it was for about 2-3 minutes most, as the boat stopped for a brief time, and quite far from them.
    Overall, if you are looking to relax on a tropical island for about 3-4h and enjoy the boat drive back and forth, this tour is great; I would just not expect too much from the snorkeling and know ahead of time that the island is overall commercializing for tourist and overcharge accordingly, but at least not crowded...

    We had an amazing time with this tour group. From beginning to end they were courteous, professional, approachable and fun. They leave a bit earlier so when you get to the island you have top pick of beach chairs and quieter beach time before the larger boats arrive. Our lunch was so delicious, they took care of everything, we just relaxed. We were treated like friends and not tourists which sets them apart from other tour groups. If you plan in visiting Tortuga Island I highly recommend booking with them.

    If you believe Pura Vida is as much about the people as it is the Paradise, look no further! It’s hard to say if there can ever truly be a “favorite”, but this one made it happen.

    Our morning started out looking a little uncertain, Capt. Marco & Daniel ensured that we were in the safest of hands and we’d not get too far if it got too sketchy. We were in exceptional care with the team, and Mother Nature beamed down and turned the weather around, so we wouldn’t have to 😏.

    Our tour could not have been a more wonderful experience. Surrounded by the lush greenery, fresh ocean waves, we cruised along with our new friends learning more about the natural wonders that make Costa Rica so special. Music was bumping, adding more bounce to the adventure, and the team even offered to pipe in our own jams via Bluetooth.

    No monkeys or dolphin sightings, however, spectacular views & unique experiences while snorkeling. The snorkeling experience is also another example of the difference between the big boats and a team like this, our time snorkeling was a unique & special experience, hands on learning at its best! Daniel showed & shared so much of his ocean friends with us.

    After swimming & feeding the fishes, we were off to beach, and couldn’t wait! The team delivered us directly & easily to Tortuga Island where we dined on the BEST (another big statement, considering all the food in CR is so drool worthy 🤤) luncheon - so much beautiful fruit, fried plantains, salad, rice, fresh grilled tuna (that I’m certain Capt. Marco caught while we were busy snorkeling.) …and then we were off to play at the playa!

    Rental chairs & umbrellas are available, but not required nor necessary, we did but could’ve gone either way as the sand is silk.

    As the afternoon restfully breezed on, coffee and snacks were provided, and while they were so welcome & wonderful, we knew this meant our time with these great new friends and this beautiful place was about to end. Good thing the boat ride back was just as wonderful.

    We can’t wait to come back!

    Ciao!

    Pura Vida!

    Me and my girlfriend had a perfect day on this daytrip. The boat ride was smooth and nice, the boat good and clean and the crew was fantastic. The captain could give us a lot of information as we were cruising between islands. The lunch we were served was excellent! And so was the location were we had it. Probably the best day during our hole visit in Costa Rica, unforgettable! We would very much like to recommend this company (Turismo Marítimo del Pacífico). You will not regret using their service!

    The tour itself was fantastic! We saw a lot of wildlife, spent some time on the water in the boat and our guide was not only informative, but fun. The only issue we had with this day trip was that every single thing on the island costs money (even the bathrooms!!).

    My boyfriend and I were on summer for first time. We found easily private parking spaces around Caldera Port, we met the crew on time, waiting for us with a big smile and a friendly welcome. The guide was knowledgeable, personable and informative about the different locations in the way to Tortuga, we enjoyed the amazing Quesera beach, cute spider monkeys on the island and snorkeling on coral reef, where we enjoyed the beautiful Costa Rica's marine life.
    Tortuga was a great spot to relax, to hike and try the banana boat, it was a great experience! In Tortuga you can find Ostion vaca, a special local dish, we missed the opportunity to tried it, but it seems like it's very popular and enjoyable by all the visitors. At 4 was time to go, we were little sad but knowing that soon we were back again!
    Must need sun blocker and Pura Vida vibes!

    I've been on tours with many different companies but this was is by far the best. The tour was customized for us according to our needs. Tour guides had no problem making the perfect tour for us and my pet.

    The tours overall felt less like traveling with a tour guide and more like traveling with a friend. I'd highly recommend these tours to anyone interested in seeing Tortuga island Costa Rica.

    Captain marco was extremely flexible He did a fantastic job with every single one. He was also extremely kind and a pleasure to get to know. Cristian was a fantastic tour guide and one of the kindest gentlemen I have met. He went out of his way to make our tour perfect. Thank you all for an awesome trip!
