About
Costa Cat cruises daily to beautiful Tortuga island from the world class Los Suenos Marina. A short shuttle from Jaco or the surrounding areas and you will be greeted by a complimentary light breakfast onboard prior to departing in comfort across the Gulf of Nicoya in our 55 ft air conditioned catamaran. Upon arrival at the island our guests have the option of going snorkeling or just relaxing under the swaying palms in their beach chairs and enjoying paradise. Next, our world-famous lunch is served, with both vegetarian and vegan options as well as standard Costa Rican fare. The next activities planned are some fun in the water on our banana boat ride, or a nature hike to explore the island and it’s epic sea views from the higher viewpoints of Tortuga Island.

Amazing service!
The service was amazing. They were all so personable and worked so hard to serve us! The lunch was good but not great. The beach is just okay.

Super Fun Excursion
Oct 2021
We did this tour on a Saturday in October & we had an amazing time. The catamaran was really nice and clean, once we left the harbor they let us go outside for the trip to Tortuga Island. The staff was all EXTREMELY friendly, always asking if we needed anything, you could do all or any (or none) of the following: snorkeling, banana boat & small hike/walk. They provided a really delicious lunch & did not skimp on the food. There was a separate area with chairs and there were enough for everyone. My husband and I had a great time relaxing and getting taken care of during the tour. A storm did hit at the end of our day so we were all huddled under the areas where we ate at while we waited for the catamaran to pick us up, and it was a rocky & wild lightning filled journey back to the harbor, but we survived! I would recommend this excursion because there is something for everyone, but beware if you get sea sick!

They are so professional and friendly! You can't go wrong with them. Snorkeling isn't great right now because the water isn't clear (rainy season), but it was still worth the day out on the ocean and the white sand beach at Tortuga.

Not sure what to expect, but this was a awesome day. Crew was fabulous....learned our names and addressed us throughout the day. Beach is beautiful, lunch was awesome with lots of Costa Rican flavors.

I HIGHLY recommend Costa Cat for this tour.

Entire crew did a great job of making our outing enjoyable. Our host, Wilbur, ensured we were looked after and we were safe. The catamaran was new, clean and well cared for. The crew was attentive, efficient, and happy. Snorkeling was fun, although the rainy season makes for reduced visibility - even so, we saw a lot of fish of several colorful varieties. The lunch was superior (grilled chicken, veggie, rice, salad and slaw) considering we were on an uninhabited island. And they were attentive to COVID protocols. Overall, an excellent experience.

A completely pleasant experience!
The crew is a hard working and attentive to excellent service. Very nice smooth-running 55 foot catamaran, where you can be in air conditioned comfort or enjoying the sea spray on the deck.
Once you arrive at Las Tortuga island, the staff sets up with refreshments as you settle into beach lounge chairs. Margaritas and Rum Punch flows, while snorkeling and banana boat is available. Water was murky the day we were there but still saw some nice fish.
Lunch is a hot buffet of local Costa Rican chicken, rice, salad and coleslaw. Delicious and pleasant.
After lunch we hiked the very rough trail behind the beach to some nice views. The trail needs extensive maintenance, where it was quite dangerous, with exposed rebar and tree roots everywhere.
The crew is what makes the Costa Cat memorable.

Costa Cat Tortuga went above and beyond!
Sep 2021
What an amazing experience! The Crew was amazing. I am a large handicapped woman and I was with my husband and our friends, and the crew made me feel like a very important Queen. There was absolutely no shortage of attention and concern for me. They helped on the boat with strength and confidence. They helped me off the boat with grace and dignity, and when I couldn't walk in the sand anymore they pushed me on a cart and while I know it was not an easy task, they never acted like it was a bother or difficult for them.
The food for lunch was superb, really excellent! The drinks were good and abundant. Not just alcoholic beverages but sodas and waters as well! But I cant say enough about the captain (Roger) and his crew; Yorleny, (Bartender extraordinaire), Jordan, Fabricio, and Wilbert (amazing young men who made it their mission to take care of me and bless everyone on the cruise)! When we come back and my knees are "new" we are doing it again so I can dance through the waves with all of them! It was a great day!!!
