What a great experience. The catamaran was large enough to accommodate up to 40 people but also big enough for our group of 12 to find our own area and hang out. The music could have been better, but it was a group experience so I know they are trying to accommodate everyone.

There was an open bar which is great but the drinks more on the sweet side so we stuck with beers ($3/per). The entire vibe of the catamaran was great and the staff were on point. We didn’t have to wait for drinks at all. Also the food they made was really really good. The fish was fresh and the pasta was delicious.

Towards the end of the trip the sun started to set and we had a great golden hour full of pictures.

Also, there are two large slides, a jump off deck, and a bunch of snorkeling gear.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side the day we went for the sunset cruise - very cloudy so we didn't see any animals. I recommend taking a morning/afternoon cruise instead of the sunset. Apparently they were able to see more animals in the morning/afternoon. Sunset was seen docked in the marina at the end of the cruise and was also obstructed from the clouds. Food options were limited but drinks were plenty. Every one on board were very friendly and nice. I think because of the crowd on the boat it was a little quieter/calmer. Pick up and drop off went smoothly.

We took this trip on our last day in Costa Rica and it was the perfect ending. The staff was great, the food was excellent and of course the scenery was stellar. The snorkeling was a ton of fun and we had a blast cannonballing off the upper deck. Even those who just relaxed on the boat with a tropical drink got a great show as schools of big tropical fish hung out by the boat (probably hoping for some lunch scraps).

I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting for this cruise….dolphin sightings, maybe even a whale or some sea birds. But when the 8 girls arrived with full back sides and breasts exposed in sight for all the passengers to view it set the tone pretty quick. They spent the first 45 minutes of the trip taking explicit pictures of themselves. It was hard not to notice. I think it completely distracted not only our family but most of the other families on board. Unfortunately the staff did nothing to stop it nor did i hear anything about wildlife.

I’ve been on many catamaran tours and none have been like this. It really wasn’t as advertised. There was no mention of wildlife, culture, shore line features. The snorkeling area was crowded with hundreds of tourists just bobbing in the water. There weren’t too many fish in the area as they have likely been run out by all the tourists.

We did get a decent meal and a beautiful view of the sunset. And I could tell the staff were working hard to give customers drinks and food but that was all.

I just wouldn’t do this cruise again. It was less than what I expected coming on.

There was very little to demonstrate that this was an 'Eco' adventure. During the 4 hour trip there was a 4-5 minute commentary about Manuel Antonio park and a brief close up view of a protected island which is a key place for certain nesting birds. The catamaran then went further out to sea to find some dolphins. A small pod of around 5-6 dolphins was soon located which, along with 2 other catamaran, were followed for around 20 minutes. Each time one of the dolphins was spotted the skippers seemed to race their catamarans to be the first to get the best view for their paying customers. Dolphins will on occasion follow boats around and play in their wake but equally they can be bothered by the underwater noises from 3 large Catamaran engines heading for them.

Other parts of the trip were fine, depending on your viewpoint. The snorkelling part involved up to 150 people in the water (there were 5 catamarans at this spot), all heading for an area where a rock broke the surface. If you don't mind the crowds in the water and also don't expect to see too much marine life then with the warm water and sun on your back I am sure there is enjoyment to be had. Following this there was the chance to jump off the deck of the catamaran into the sea or use the slide and many on board really enjoyed this. The food was fine and the sunset as we returned to port was beautiful.

From chatting to others on the trip most found it enjoyable but please don't expect any demonstration of Eco friendly activities or any great detail of how this company is contributing to help this wonderful environment. This is a business operation much like the other catamarans operating from Quepos port but has just added the Eco label to try to attract more customers. It works because that is the reason I chose it and I certainly fell for it. Just because
you add the word 'Eco' to the company details doesn't mean it is an improvement on the other catamaran operations all of which provide very similar services.

Totally misleading description This was no way an eco adventure with snorkelling in a reef with a wildlife guide. It was a boat playing hideous loud rap music filled with swear words. Small stop for swim but nothing to be seen around a rock! Loud noisy American girls on board totally awful

Staff were great but this was more a party boat with all you can drink pina coladas

This was an amazing experience for us, one of our favorites of the trip! We saw stingrays and dolphins jumping out of the water, and had an incredible view of the sunset. You also get a great tour around the islands off the coast of Manuel Antonio National Park. Snorkeling was a lot of fun, and we saw a lot of fish, but don’t expect coral or large sea creatures. The jump off of the catamaran was a blast, but only use the slides if you don’t have neck or back issues. The food was DELICIOUS, and alcohol was aplenty, mixed with fresh juices. I would highly recommend laying out on the nets over the water. Finally the staff on the catamaran were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable.

The only issue was that the pick-up process to the catamaran was confusing and ran a little late. Be sure to leave clear instructions for your location and be ready on time.

Friendly and attentive guides, they were thoughtful and helpful! My friends and I were supposed to go out on a bigger boat but at the last minute we were told another group canceled so the company might not be able to take us out on the day we planned. Fortunately, however, they were able to accommodate us on a smaller boat with a smaller group of people, which I think was actually a lot better.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

We had absolutely amazing time! It was very easy to book the trip. They actually picked us up from our hotel. What a wonderful crew- everyone on a catamaran was so friendly and just did everything to male this trip unforgettable for us. The food was outstanding, the drinks as well. We were able to see the dolphins and then we were able to swim in a ocean, and use the slides -it was so much fun!
The whole crew was very attentive, they also were following all the safety precautions. We took our 4 and 8 years old kids. So it's definitely kids friendly, they had a special vest for them and my daughter was scared at first, but the staff was really great with her and kinda calmed her down. We will never forget this trip, thank you so much.

Overall a good time, boat was what I would consider moderately crowded considering similar things in other places. Inclusive drinks are cheap well liquors and beer isn’t included. Staff were amazing, friendly and attentive. Food was quite tasty.
