What a fantastic day we had with Rolbi and Alex, and the rest of the crew. Warm, friendly, funny, and so knowledgeable about local history and nature, they took our group of 12 women on a sailing adventure in PPG, making stops at local beaches, feeding us ceviche from mahi mahi they caught that morning. A truly perfect day on Earth with the most lovely guides. I can’t wait to work with them on my next trip.

We booked the 6 hour boat trip for our family of four and it was one of the best things we did in Costa Rica. Rolbin and Eduardo were kind, funny, and knowledgeable. Rolbin knows the area and history, which allowed us to learn while having a fun-filled day. The food was amazing. Don't hesitate to book a trip with Marea Alta!

Loved our day with Captain Rolbin and first mate Eduardo. It was the best day of our trip to Costa Rica. We did sightseeing along the coast, stopped in Coco Beach to see the town and shop, had lunch on a secluded beach and visited the caves there. We saw dolphins, turtles, devil rays, howler monkeys and many birds. Got some great photos and Rolbin shared his photos with us too. I highly recommend spending the day with them. It was such fun!

I went diving with Rolbin today, all I have to say is wow. He is a very experienced diver and took his time making sure I got to see all the amazing creatures underwater. We had so much fun and I cannot wait to dive with him again in the future. Highly recommend diving with him or trying one of the other activities they offer.

Rolbin is an amazing resource for Costa Rica carrying on the history of this beautiful country. The boat ride was everything we had hoped for! Dolphins, rays, turtles!
Rolbin provided great refreshments along with great fruit chips salsa and beans! Amazing tour guide!

Best boat trip experience for our family with young kids. The boat is way bigger than it appears on pictures. The crew speaks good English and they are flexible and creative on the go. We saw a lot more than we hoped for and we learned a lot about Costa Rica. Lots of gear on the boat. Snacks and drinks were great. The guys were very mindful of our comfort level. Highly recommend them.

Sincere thanks for your review! So happy you enjoyed the day. Yes! Comfort level of guests is always a priority. The crew does have a way of getting even the most timid in the water to enjoy. Thank you again and Pura Vida! Devon

Had two Amazing Diving Tours, 4 dives in total. Rolbin knows all the spots and basically could dive completely blind on any of them. He creates an astonishing experience for you, picks you up, organizes food (best fruits!) and drinks (tell him what you like!). Atmosphere was awesome, had nonstop fun through both days, even though the diving conditions where not perfect (lots of particles).
Also as a dive Master he is very experienced and can handle any situation with ease. On the first dive my girlfriend panicked because of the bad visibility and some trouble with pressure equalization and her mask. Rolbin did a really good job on calming her down, and finding a solution to all the problems under water without her going back to surface (what she initially wanted to do). After that she was able to continue normally, without any impact or issue after. :)

Can definitely recommend and would dive with him again!!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a nice review! Means the world to us. Happy Rolbin was able to make your girlfriend feel relaxed during her dives. Fun is a given but your comfort and safety is always our top priority. Million thanks! Pura Vida, Devon
