Blew our expectations out of the water!
Oct 2021 • Friends
We did a boat tour to Tortuga Island with them and it was fantastic! They went above and beyond. I thought it would just be a straight shot to the island, but we did pit stops to see dolphins, spider monkeys, and whales! They served us fresh fruit and a delicious healthy lunch. Señor Marion Espinosa was a lovely guide and checked in with us constantly on if there was anything we needed. The price is probably not for everyone, but I can assure you, it’s worth every cent.

My family and I decided to travel for second time to Costa Rica. We wanted to visit once again Tortuga Island. Believe me, our second visit to this Island was a 1000% better than the first time. Marco and Cristian, the captain and tourist guide were very attentives. My first time I traveled was on a catamaran, super slow, we spent more time on the catamaran than in the beach. But, with this company, we enjoyed lot more the beach, we saw monkeys, dolphins, a place called La Ventana de Nicoya, we saw frigates and the best, I took My pet. Definitely, this people are the BEST.

A journey to a clandestine island, where every moment is pura vida
Apr 2021
Once we found the boat (listen to the directions the tour gives you!) our day unfolded spectacularly. Christian and Marco loaded us on to the boat with our ample animal viewing hopes. We had no idea what a soul-splendoring afternoon this would be. Right away, the boat took off. Out into the ocean, Marco (the second best capitain of all time, don't ask what happened to the first capitain) navigated the boat so we could see playful dolphins and other frolicking wild life (we also picked up the chef!) All the way Chrisitan narrated us with an educational commentary so comedic that I almost fell off of the boat laughing (fortunately, we were wearing life jackets!) But, yes, jump off of the boat we did: and we snorkled in that aquamarine water... coexisting with the most stunning fish and sea creatures.

Back on the boat, Chrisitan heard my Dad's plea to see the monkeys. He steered us to a special island where we saw a whole spider monkey community.

Finally, we ventured to the destination to Isla Tortuga. While we ambled the island, the crew put together an incredible feast: an appetizer of the freshest, most succulent fruit and mouth watering ceviche to begin. The main course starred a fillet of tuna, vegetables and potato salad. Sipping my beer, toes in the sand, I thought, "hey, I could get used to this."

We frolicked on the island: meeting a deer and an island peacock. We also observed an interesting showdown between two iguanas and treasure trove of lettuce leaves. Darwin would be happy indeed.

After an afternoon of basking in the sun and floating in the aquamarine waters, we returned for coffee and more fruit.

Christian and Marco returned us safe to the mainland. But, the experience remains egrained in my mind. Yes, the trip was planned so meticulously. Yes, Christian shared his knowledge of the flora and fauna of the sea. But, there was something else: the experience of being fully present: enjoying the moment: pura vida. That feeling of happiness and bliss admist a backdrop of aquamarine waters. Thank you for making this experience so fantastic for my family.

Best tours ever!
Apr 2021 • Friends
I've been on tours with many different companies but this was is by far the best. The tour was customized for us according to our needs. Tour guides had no problem making the perfect tour for us and my pet.

The tours overall felt less like traveling with a tour guide and more like traveling with a friend. I'd highly recommend these tours to anyone interested in seeing Tortuga island Costa Rica.

Captain marco was extremely flexible He did a fantastic job with every single one. He was also extremely kind and a pleasure to get to know. Cristian was a fantastic tour guide and one of the kindest gentlemen I have met. He went out of his way to make our tour perfect. Thank you all for an awesome trip!

Unforgettable day!
Dec 2020
Me and my girlfriend had a perfect day on this daytrip. The boat ride was smooth and nice, the boat good and clean and the crew was fantastic. The captain could give us a lot of information as we were cruising between islands. The lunch we were served was excellent! And so was the location were we had it. Probably the best day during our hole visit in Costa Rica, unforgettable! We would very much like to recommend this company (Turismo Marítimo del Pacífico). You will not regret using their service!

Great experience
Feb 2020
My boyfriend and I were on summer for first time. We found easily private parking spaces around Caldera Port, we met the crew on time, waiting for us with a big smile and a friendly welcome. The guide was knowledgeable, personable and informative about the different locations in the way to Tortuga, we enjoyed the amazing Quesera beach, cute spider monkeys on the island and snorkeling on coral reef, where we enjoyed the beautiful Costa Rica's marine life.
Tortuga was a great spot to relax, to hike and try the banana boat, it was a great experience! In Tortuga you can find Ostion vaca, a special local dish, we missed the opportunity to tried it, but it seems like it's very popular and enjoyable by all the visitors. At 4 was time to go, we were little sad but knowing that soon we were back again!
Must need sun blocker and Pura Vida vibes!

Everything was así they Said “Pura vida”
Feb 2020 • Family
We arrived at 7:30am. Captain Marco Guzman had the engines fired up and had us underway and heading for Isla Tortuga by 8.We arrived at the island shortly before 9 after a very enjoyable boat ride where se saw dolphine. On the ride I was able to ask Capt.
Once on the island the crew really kicked in! They helped all of us down to the beach and then Alonso guided us to an area of the beach that was reserved for guests of the boat. The beach is a beautiful tropical setting and our area was located just back from the white sand beach in among the palm trees which offered plenty of shade. A hope to come back soon.
