Half-Day Manuel Antonio Catamaran Cruise from Manuel Antonio

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins when you meet your guide at your centrally located Manuel Antonio hotel for a morning cruise or an afternoon cruise (pickup time advised upon reconfirmation). Take a short drive to the boat dock: your catamaran awaits.

    Upon boarding, begin your cruise on the Pacific Ocean, skirting the shores of Manuel Antonio National Park. Glide past lush coastal rain forests and white sand beaches, learning about the ecosystem from a guide with knowledge of the area’s flora and fauna as you go.

    Bask in the tropical sunshine while you eat a typical Costa Rican lunch of flavorful rice, beans, and meat skewers accompanied by natural fruit juices. Cocktails crafted with Costa Rican liquor are available for purchase.

    Choose an adventure that best fits your style with distinct morning and afternoon activities. Morning tours will stop in the secluded Biesanz Bay for swimming and snorkeling, with all equipment included, and afternoon tours will feature a panoramic view of the sunset over the ocean and live music.

    At the end of the cruise, a van will come to pick you up and take your back to your hotel.
