BOAT TRIPS

Boat TripsFor those who really want to be in the lap of luxury, our full-day beach barbecues or gourmet picnics combine delicious, fresh, gourmet food with the most pristine and relaxed setting imaginable. All of our food is prepared by experienced chefs, and uses the freshest and best products available. These dynamic tours offer an activity-filled day, whether it includes snorkeling, fishing, or diving off the boat, or simply a day of fun from the beach. Our boats are equipped with all kinds of games and toys for the more adventure-oriented people. While others are reading their books on the beach, you can stay active waterskiing or inner tubing, or even with a game of Frisbee, soccer, beach tennis, or horseshoes. This tour is perfect for a group with different interests, and having the full day at your disposal allows everyone a chance to enjoy their favorite activities. 

SUNSET TOUR

The catamaran will set sail and you will hear the waves slide along the giant catamaran as the sun sets, illuminating the clouds left in the sky. Silently glide along Costa Rica’s Gold Coast while passing some of Guanacaste’s exotic bays, white sand beaches, tropical jungles and rain forest. Gaze off the bow with a cold tropical drink prepared and served by our crew as you scan the seas for dolphins, sea turtles, flying fish or even a breaching whale. Stop in a tranquil bay, drop anchor and frolic in the blue Pacific. Stand up paddle through sea caves, float on a raft, snorkel in the bay or run down the deserted white sand beach while the ever helpful crew prepares a feast of chicken or pasta salad, fruit, chips, pico de gallo and guacamole.

SCUBA DIVING

The Gulf of Papagayo offers some of the Pacific Ocean’s most interesting marine diversity. The plankton-rich waters support numerous species from big to small. On any given day you may see frogfish, harlequin clown shrimp, seahorses, and octopus, or you might have a lucky encounter with schooling eagle rays, white tip reef sharks, giant Pacific manta rays, or a passing whaleshark. We provide private tours customized for small groups with experienced and knowledgeable guides.
