Friendly crew, delicious drinks at the open bar, tasty food and good music. After snorkling we were allowed to use the paddle boards, very nice of them. Got a little sunburn, but totally worth it. Thanks to Costa Rica Best Trips I found out about them. It was a great day that ended with quite an amazing sunset!

I've done a few catamaran cruises in various islands and I must say this was the best one yet! The boat was extremely clean, the crew was beyond attentive, and they didn't skimp on the open bar!! Totally a must do if you are visiting Tamarindo beach!

Excellent tour and great catamaran ride. Food, drinks and beach stop were wonderful. It was windy and snorkeling wasn't great, but still worth it. A warning on the jelly fish would have been preferred, they weren't too bad but were a surprise.

Great crew, drinks, food, and experience. We were lucky enough to see humpback whales and sea turtles. Our kids loved it.

Had a lovely day out on the marlin. Lots of drinks, music and great food. The snorkelling wasn't brilliant due to murky waters but the sea was warm and fun to swim in. The crew were fantastic and seemed like everyone had fun. Well worth the cost and highly recommend.

Snorkeling was the highlight for me. Staff was warm and friendly. They did a great job of reading the mood of the passengers and then reacted accordingly.

This is a booze cruise, if you want a sailing trip, look elsewhere. And, it's a really good one. Plenty of fresh pineapple for blender drinks, lunch is great, the music is of course up tempo, the setting is beautiful, and it's well organized. The catamaran is large and can take a fair number of people, and it's a convivial... More

Very pleasant and well equipped boat and a great team leading the excursion....knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The trip was great too for all ages. The snorkeling area chosen was not the best and while there were some coloured fish to see, which after all was the objective of the diving part of the trip, these were a scarce and... More

You cannot go to Costa Rica without a nice catamaran ride and there is none better than this one! The crew is great, the boat is gorgeous and the atmosphere is amazing!

It was one of the most fun days on our vacation! Between sunbathing on the nets, to snorkelling and enjoying lunch, the whole day-trip ran SO smoothly because of the excellent staff. Honestly the best service any of us had received on a tour. The crew were so chill, and yet made regular rounds around the boat to ensure we... More
