The service was amazing. Let me start by saying the catamaran was very well kept it looked new. If you don't want to snorkel you can stay the boat or grab a noodle and relax in the warm ocean. The meal they served is very good. I want the recipe for their chicken. They made my husband a banana colada... More

My husband and I had a lot of fun on this excursion. It was booked easily; we were able to schedule it same day since it was an afternoon excursion. We were picked up on time from our resort, transported in an air-conditioned bus to the beach, and then we were on our way! The drinks and food were delicious.... More

We spent the day at the catamaran. The staff were fantastic, explained everything and made sure we were having a good time checking if we needed more drinks etc. Food and drinks were very good. I've never enjoyed a piña colada so much in my entire life! The only 'disappointment' is that I was expecting turquoise water and see lots... More

Ken and the crew with Marlin Del Rey are top notch! Had a great time. Food was delicious and drinks we're plentiful. Able to see an octopus and hold a puffer fish while snorkeling. Will do it again next time we come to Tamarindo.

Great day on the boat. The crew was super attentive, the drinks were flowing non-stop, and the crew always made sure you had a drink if you wanted one. Lunch was very good. The boat was very clean and well kept (including the bathrooms) the snorkel gear was also in great condition. Would highly recommend.

We went on the sunset sail with a small group, including children. The staff was very friendly and attentive, demonstrating excellent customer service. Food and drinks were included. Unfortunately the snorkeling was not good; the water was choppy, murky and the few fish we saw were not interesting (the two water snakes were though!). We were allowed to jump off... More

I was highly impressed with the service provided by Marlin Del Rey! From the funny and ever-helpful crew, to the amazing views and snorkelling from the boat, to the delicious lunch that served chicken, rice, picco de gallo, cookies - everything was fantastic! All passengers on board are very friendly as well; some guests were getting somewhat loud at the... More

We just returned home from our trip to Costa Rica. We went on the catamaran sunset cruise with Marlin Del Rey sailing tours and it was so much fun. The crew was very helpful and made sure that everyone had a great time on the trip 👍 I would highly recommend Marlin Del Rey!
