5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Great 4 hour trip for snorkeling and checking out beaches that look like they were filmed on "LOST". Great lunch and awesome day of leisure and fun.

“Great afternoon of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

As we discovered one afternoon in Costa Rica, there's really not much that's more fun than walking through the surf, stepping onto a beautiful catamaran and having the crew greet you with drinks! Comfy deck chairs, a full bar, pumping tunes and a fantastic gourmet buffet lunch complete the creature comforts.

We boarded the Catamaran at Playa Matapalo (The RIU resorts) and sailed past Ocotal to Playa del Coco to pick up more guests. They didn't show, so the afternoon we went, there were about 20 people on board. We motored to a secluded beach with good snorkeling and some wildlife sightings.

Heading back, the sunny day turned into a thunderstorm, and the crew rolled down barriers, so we were nice and dry and actually enjoyed the dramatic weather.

We thought it was an amazing value -- much better food, drink and service than on similar excursions we taken in Maui.

Pura Vida!

“Sunset Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

My family and I took the sunset cruise and had tons of fun. Beautiful sunset views, great live entertainment from Alex, and a tasty light meal. The crew was super nice especially and had great service. Eddy was awesome! Unfortunately, it was very wavy so we did not get to see much while our stop to snorkel but this was not something that could be avoided! Overall it was tons of fun and I would recommend this tour. I am not sure if I would take children on this tour. Being able to drink made it twice as fun!

“The Best Afternoon/Sunset Cruise Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We held a pre-wedding Welcome Party aboard the catamaran which included 50 guests. Everyone had a blast! The boat picked us up on the beach in front of our hotel. The boat was comfortable and clean. There was plenty of staff on board to make sure everyone had what they needed at all times. The cocktails were flowing. No one ever waited for a drink. The staff members even walked the decks and brought cocktails to our guests. The younger adults went for the shots. Needless to say, everyone was quite happy when they left the boat. The staff is professional and courteous. They were very attentive and friendly to all our guests. They made sure everyone had a good time. All the guests raved about how much fun they had and how special this event made their trip.

Honestly; I would never write such a bad review if it wouldn't have been the worst tour I have ever been on... Not just the dirtiness of the toilets, the bad (and very poor) food, the way too loud music and the slow bar service... The REAL BAD THING is that the boat just drops you off! At a small beach (nothing to do; nothing to drink; nowhere to go) we were all dropped of and the boat left!!!! As we got colder and colder in the water (no sun, no towel, no water) and waved at the boat it did not even come back! An hour and 20' minutes we were in the water until some decided to swim back to the boat... no help getting on board and the very bad crew just said they were preparing lunch...that was the reason they left the shore! Very bad! I have made so many boat tours all over the world... this is the WORST! DON"T GO ON THE VISION!!!!!
