We sailed on the Panche IV which, honestly looked too small for our group of 45 people as we looked at it from the beach. Once we got there, it was only a little crowded, but entirely workable. They ferried us from the beach of our resort via dinghy. Once I set foot on the boat, it was the most... More

We took the sunset cruise on the Hibiscus and it was my favorite activity from our trip. We were able to enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, fishing (if we wanted), and, quite honestly, the best fajitas I've ever had (not sure if it was because of the appetite we had worked up). The crew was incredibly friendly and the boat was... More

It's amazing to be able to sail on the ocean on an incredible catamaran with great service. The trip was phenomenal, what a great way to gain another perspective on the land and enjoy all that Costa Rica has to offer. Thank you for a glorious experience.

My partner and I did both the kayak fishing and the evening sunset snorkel cruise. I would highly recommend both! If you are interested in kayak fishing but you aren't very familiar with the gear and tying knots then it doesn't hurt to let them know before you head out so you can get the help you need. Bring sunscreen... More

We really enjoyed our trip on this beautiful boat. The crew was very friendly and made sure that we had our fill of drinks. The food was delicious, especially the fresh guacamole. They were even knowledgeable enough to accommodate my gluten allergy. The captain took care to ensure that we avoided red tide areas (toxic algae blooms) and were swimming... More

This is advertised as a sunset sail. Unfortunately we barely sailed the motor was going most of the time. The boat was very crowded. The snorkelling was a huge disappointment and we weren't offered a sea kayak as advertised. The staff were very friendly but seemed they just wanted to offer us cocktails and very average food. I'd strongly not... More

Incredible trip! The captain was super warm and inviting and we felt totally at ease the whole time. He and his crew kept the trip entertaining with jokes and cool details of the areas we visited--which were breathtaking! I really feel he chose the best spots to see and explore, which we could do snorkeling AND kayaking! The food and... More

Great crew, great fun! We loved it and so glad we went. This was the third time for some of the members in our group, but my first time. I plan on doing it again each time I visit CR.
